Antonio Esfandiari Working His Magic at LAPC

Wpt-logo Just kidding about that headline.

Antonio Esfandiari burst onto the poker scene 19 years ago when he won the LAPC and a WSOP bracelet just a few months apart.

He's poised for another deep LAPC run this year, as he takes the big stack into Day 3 play with 405,000.

Esfandiari is followed by every cab driver we've ever had Kofi Farkye with 395,000.

In all, 170 remain. Among those are Bertrand Grospellier (190,000), Haralabos Voulgaris (188,000), Jeffrey Garza (172,600), Phil Ivey (150,900), Greg "FBT" Mueller (145,000), Toto Leonidas (140,000), where the fuck you been Chris Karagulleyan (129,400), Paul Wasicka (129,000), Chris "Jesus" Ferguson (128,000), Peter "Nordberg" Feldman (125,700), and John Phan (125,000).

Did you look at the Bust Out list? Did you notice Lee Watkinson/Markholt busted one after the other? Or is this just more evidence that they are the same person... since one was absent, the other one was also suddenly gone!
