Since the beginning, Antonio Esfandiari has been a Poker After Dark favorite. “The Magician” was featured on countless episodes when the show debuted over a decade ago and since Poker After Dark‘s summer reboot, Esfandiari has been in the center of the PokerGO action. After starring in last year’s “Moon Magic” week, Esfandiari will headline another magical cash game this week.
“The Prestige” will feature back-to-back $50/$100 No Limit Hold’em cash games, boasting $20,000 minimum buy-ins. Action begins Tuesday, January 16 and continues on Wednesday, January 17. Both cash games will be broadcast live on PokerGO and begin streaming at 6 PM ET.
“The Prestige” opener will not only feature Antonio Esfandiari, but another player that Poker After Dark fans have become familiar with over the last few months. Hollywood producer Randall Emmett made his Poker After Dark debut during “Voices Carry” week, where he finished 2nd in a $25,000 Sit & Go, and returned for “Holidays with Hellmuth” week.
While Emmett has produced some of Hollywood’s biggest hits for over a decade, Bob Sura produced for five teams over a ten-year career in the National Basketball Association. Sura was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first-round of the 1995 NBA Draft and prior to his professional career, was a dominate player at Florida State University. Sura is still FSU’s all-time leading scorer and was featured during PokerGO’s coverage of this year’s World Series of Poker Main Event.
Businessmen Devon Chon Watt, Bob Nouri, Robert Sanchez, and Darol Rodrock round out Tuesday’s lineup and the same group will return to play Wednesday, with one difference. That change is a big one, as Bill Perkins makes his Poker After Dark return to fill Randall Emmett’s seat. Perkins headlined “Perks of the Trade” week in October and has been competing at the highest stakes for years.
