Our very first proud moment came early in the series when our young stud, Antonio
, made his
first World Series Final Table in the first No Limit event.Although he
landed 5th, it was Antonio's second major poker moment (his first being his
4th place finish at the televised World Poker Tour event in Colma).More than once Antonio has been pulled aside by well-wishing fans recognizing him from the WPT.But his
favorite story was a bridal shower party who recognized him a local the shuttle.He
played great and we look forward to many more to come.
wowed the crowds, and the infamous Amarillo Slim with his
And A unit covered Antonio
and the Unabomber, who taught their interesting methods to securing a breakfast table in less than 10 seconds when the wait was a half hour long.Thanks for the angle shooting, guys!
We continue to shoot in follow- up to our year long journey and are proud to report that our young superstar and "Magic-Man", Antonio Esfariandi
, made his
first World Series final table in the first No Limit Hold 'Em event last Sunday, April 20th.Congratulations Antonio!Although he
came in a disappointing 5th, we look forward to more accomplishments in the near future and will be following him closely throughout this series.
It couldn't have been better timing, as the World Poker Tour's 5th episode also featured Antonio
with an impressive 3rd place, and Phil Hellmuth a well-deserved 4th on national TV.
We fondly remember the night before, prying our eyes open at Lucky Chances in Colma, California, when Antonio
made it into the final six at about 3am, stood on his
chair, and proudly proclaimed to the universe (and the casino), "I'm going to be on TV."
...Antonio, the "World Poker Tour Magician" staged some very creative magic with some beautiful ladies and Miss Shana Hyatt for the deed.
