Antonio ‘The Magician’ Esfandiari is one of the most popular players in the world after cementing his legacy by winning the 2012 Big One for One Drop for more than $18 million. On today’s edition of the Weekend Binge Watch, we highlight some exciting poker action in which Esfandiari takes center stage.
The Esfandiari content on PokerGO stretches far too wide to mention it all but let’s start with some pieces that will get to know him even better. On Pokerography, Esfandiari tells his life story that brought him to Las Vegas via Iran and the Bay Area. For some casual fun and games, watch Deep Issues in which Drea Renee turns on the screws.
Recently, Esfandiari was featured on the PokerGO Original series “Beyond the Rail” in which cameras followed him during the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event.
As far as poker action goes, Esfandiari has nearly a dozen appearances in The Vault across seven seasons of Poker After Dark. Want some throwback action? Check out this show from Season 7 when Esfandiari played a $100k cash game with Annette Obrestad, Huck Seed, Phil Hellmuth, Andy Bloch, and Justin Smith.
For this weeks’ featured piece of PokerGO content, we’re going with one of the Poker After Dark episodes where Esfandiari best shows off his ability to play and entertain. On “Moving Violations” week, Esfandiari played in a star-studded lineup that included famed Hollywood celebrities Don Cheadle and Jennifer Tilly along with producer Randall Emmett.
This week on the Poker Central Podcast, Brent Hanks and Remko Rinkema are joined by Bryan Piccioli to talk about his epic run in the 2017 WSOP Main Event. The guys also discuss Esfandiari’s ability to host, entertain and play poker in lineups he’s created.
