2022 bestbet Jacksonville Winter Series Open MSPT Black Hawk
$5,300 Main Event

Esfandiari DQ'd

donpeters • Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Although it looks as though Antonio Esfandiari will go on to win the lunging prop bet that he made with Bill Perkins (he has until midnight tonight), the money he earned from it will be less the $5,300 buy-in of the PCA Main Event. Due to a "breach of etiquette" at the table, Esfandiari was disqualified from the event.

Late on Day 2, Esfandiari said he admitted to urinating while in the tournament in a container undercover. He said that all of the lunging made it extremely painful to move, but believed he took things too far and that it was a lack of judgement on his behalf.

At the time of the disqualification, Esfandiari had about 100,000 in chips.

After leaving the tournament, Esfandiari spoke to PokerNews about his actions:
