Last week, Antonio Esfandiari released the first video in a six-part web series called “Strip Magic," which features "The Magician" performing street magic on the Las Vegas Strip along with exclusive interviews. The first episode, which you can watch here, featured Esfandiari's return to the magic world, which he first delved into as a teenager, after years on hiatus. On Wednesday, Part II was released to the public.
The latest episode highlights Esfandiari's most advanced card tricks and also explains why he gave up on his magic dreams to pursue poker.
“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.
