Antonio Esfandiari is one of the most popular players in the world and the all-time money winner in poker, but long before that he practiced magic. Now, "The Magician" is showing off his mystic arts to the poker world in a six-part web series called “Strip Magic."
The series features Esfandiari performing street magic on the Las Vegas strips along with exclusive interviews. The first episode features Esfandiari's return to the magic world, which he first delved into as a teenager, after years on hiatus.
“Filming street magic takes me back to a special time in my life,” said Esfandiari. “I was a kid with a dream to be the next David Copperfield.That is all I cared about until I discovered poker. To succeed at poker and go back to magic as a hobby on the streets of Las Vegas was very fun for me.”
Additional episodes will be released every Wednesday. Check out the first episode below:
