Poker Central has announced that they have partnered with professional poker player Antonio Esfandiari. Just last week, Daniel Negreanu became Poker Central’s first official partner.
Clint Stinchcomb, the CEO for Poker Central, said: “We are thrilled to add Antonio to the Poker Central team. Antonio is beloved in the poker community, and will be a great asset in launching our 24/7 poker network.” Antonio Esfandiari also tweeted that he is “thrilled” about becoming a partner of Poker Central.
Antonio Esfandiari, who is widely referred to as “the magician,” gives a magical touch to the poker table. He said: “I’m excited to help launch Poker Central. Soon 24/7 poker will be available all over the world.”
Popularly known as “The Magician,” Antonio creates a magical atmosphere at the poker table, something that few players are capable of. He said, “I’m excited to help launch Poker Central. Soon 24/7 poker will be available all over the world.”
Esfandiari, like Negreanu, is a great choice for Poker Central as he is one of the most widely acclaimed personalities in the poker gaming world, having proved that he is among a handful of pros capable of performing well both at the poker table as well as behind cameras.
It may be recalled that Esfandiari has appeared on NBC’s Poker after Dark and High Stake Poker. He was also one of the few poker pros who appeared in each season of both the above-mentioned shows. Recently, he became a color analyst at ESPN’s live broadcast of the final table of the WSOP Main Event.
Although Esfandiari performed extraordinarily well at the poker tables, his performance at the Big One for ONE DROP of 2012, the WSOP’s charity poker event, made him immortal. He defeated a final table comprising international poker champions, wealthy entrepreneurs, and Hall of Famers to win $18.34 million in the first $1 million buy-in charity poker tournament in the game’s history. This put him right at the top of the All-time Money List for poker.
Currently, he occupies the second position on the All-time Money List for poker, having earned as much as $26.4 million. He has also won three WSOP bracelets and two WPT championship titles.
Poker Central has kept its promise that it will release information regarding the network and its partners soon. Now, poker players are eagerly waiting for the $25 Million Super High Roller Bowl, scheduled for this July.
