After the world’s best female players opened the year on PokerGO, the magical pairing of Antonio Esfandiari and Bill Perkins kept the Poker After Dark train moving. Over two nights of “The Prestige” cash games, Esfandiari and Perkins clashed in some of the week’s biggest pots. More often than not, Perkins came out ahead and when the week concluded, Perkins was up over $400,000. If you missed any of “The Prestige” week action, episodes are available on-demand on PokerGO.

If players are playing on PokerGO, the safe bet is that they are competing at the world’s highest stakes and against the world’s best players. You’d think that would put some players under pressure, but not quite. The only way players like Doug Polk, Brian Rast, Maria Ho, and Steffen Sontheimer feel the pressure is in Drea Renee’s Deep Issues massage chair. Check out brand-new Deep Issues episodes now and more PokerGO original content.
Dear @RealKidPoker: Let's fix high stakes online poker cash games….
When the face of @PokerStars is openly mocking the current system in place at high stakes, it's clear many changes need to take place.

Is there anything Joe Ingram can’t do? After vowing to fix high stakes online poker cash games last week, Ingram is teasing the idea of moving into the CryptoTube space. This week’s news comes after Ingram ended the year with a prop bet to learn Mandarin and get OJ Simpson on his podcast. Forget Oprah 2020, if Joe Ingram can do all of this and more, people will be shouting “Ingram 2020!” from the roof of the Rio this summer.

Back to reality and back to the PCA. Maria Lampropulos picked up another seven-figure score in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, just nine months after winning the partypoker MILLIONS Live Main Event for $1.2 million. Those scores have instantly moved Lampropulos into the poker spotlight and the Argentine is quickly becoming one of the most decorated women to ever play the game. Over $1 million prizes don’t come along that often, when you exclude High Roller events, and the poker world’s next chance at a seven-figure score will likely come in the World Poker Tour’s LAPC Main Event. Will Lampropulos be there?
