Antonio "The Magician" Esfandiari, born Amir Esfandiary, is a professional poker player and former professional magician, known for his elaborate chip tricks. Esfandiari was the face of the United States' first legal and regulated online poker site, Ultimate Poker, however since Monday, November 17, 2014 it has shutdown due to low revenue. In addition to appearing on several poker television shows, he has won two World Poker Tour championships and three World Series of Poker bracelets in his career, including the "Big One for One Drop" in 2012, a $1,000,000 buy-in tournament benefiting the One Drop Foundation. By winning the event, along with the largest cash prize in the history of poker at $18,346,673, Esfandiari has been ranked number one for all-time tournament poker winnings, until Daniel Negreanu took this title by finishing 2nd in the "Big One For One Drop 2014". In 2012, he authored The Magician's Secrets for Winning Tournaments on Insta Poker, a poker strategy game available for iOS.
