Spt_hiltonsisters0211If you want to make it past the first level of a tournament, sit at a final table and still be there when it's down to the final two, let's face it, you can't just post blinds and wait for top ten hands. You need to learn how to play position and win whether you have 7-6 off or the Hilton sisters. Driving this point home well is maverick pro Antonio "The Magician" Esfandiari, who recently sat down with a sports columnist for the Chicago Tribune and talked through an actual hand he played to demonstrate how playing position allows you to steal, control and isolate the dead money at the table.

Antonio_esfandiari_sideOriginally from a country where owning playing cards is illegal, Antonio "The Magician" Esfandiari, now resides in San Francisco, runs with a posse called Rock & Rings and has become one of the best young poker pros on the circuit, with a 1.4 million dollar win at the LA Poker Classic and a WSOP bracelet in pot limit to his name.
