Off the Felt: Antonio Esfandiari's Birthday, Elky Proposal & Mizrachi's in South Africa
In last week's edition of Off the Felt, we had love in the air and babies on the way, while some others were living it up in Mexico. This time, we have the 40th birthday of Antonio Esfandiari, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier getting engaged and the Mizrachi's in South Africa.
Antonio Esfandiari's Birthday
Last week, Antonio Esfandiari turned 40 and that was a good reason to organize a great party. Poker legend Phil Hellmuth came over to join the celebration:
Also, poker streamer Jeff Gross had a great time at Esfandiari's party:
In the past few weeks, we saw several poker players getting on their knees to ask their girlfriends to marry them. This week, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier did the same and popped the question to Jenny No.
Michael Mizrachi spent some time with Sarah and traveled to South Africa. Sarah posted some great pictures after their trip:
