One of the most recognisable faces in poker will be playing a $300 tournament this weekend in Michigan, USA, providing a rare opportunity for poker players to take on one of the games best players.
Antonio Esfandiari first broke onto the poker scene when he won the 2004 WPT event at Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, beating a final table which included Phil Hellmuth and Vinny Vinh. He soon went on to win a WSOP bracelet, in Pot Limit Hold’em, a couple of months after.
To play against the Magician normally would entail a $10,000 + buy in, but with the tournament held at the Four Winds Casino Resort, the $300 will give many a chance to lock horns with one of the modern day favourites.
'We're thrilled that Antonio Esfandiari will bring his world-class poker skill to the Four Winds Casino Resort,' said Matt Harkness, Four Winds general manager. 'It's a great opportunity for our players to compete against a world-class talent and with a chance to win $27,500 in prize money.'
