Antonio Esfandiari is the all-time earnings leader in WSOP history. He captured two bracelets in 2012, with the first coming in the $1 million buy-in One Drop that changed the course of poker statistics forever. His second piece of gold came at WSOP Europe, where his first-place prize of $164,656 was a mere $18.1 million less than what he earned for One Drop.
Since the 2012 WSOP, Esfandiari made the WPT Five Diamond main event final table, cashed in the Heads-Up Championships, finished third in the Premier League VI and bubbled the TV final table at the WSOP APAC main event. He also became the first ambassador for a legal online poker site in the U.S., and we know that he'll be at the Rio all summer sporting a patch and hoping to continue the heater.
