I Bet You

For both Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Laak, having a new show is the highlight of their young yet fruitful poker careers. MOJO Network, which is a new hi-definition channel, presented the concept of having these two friends play poker across the country.

I Bet You is an inspiring show that will bring together millions of poker fans from around the globe. The notion for the show is to not only introduce the game of poker but to also show the bond between two people who enjoy the same game. Antonio and Phil show the world that poker is not another competitive sport, but it is a game for socialization and friendship as well.

The show I Bet You includes three different betting styles. Bets will be classified into A, B and C. A bets are for high-priced items. For instance, Antonio and Phil will compete for the title of who’s going to get the highest tip or who’s going to win significant performances. B bet is about poker. Phil and Antonio will test their skills and compete against each other on who’s better in teaching beginners how to play poker. C bets, on the other hand, are for out-of-this-world ideas like racing to one of the celebrity’s houses or drinking one bottle of champagne under a minute or two.

On Antonio Esfandiari

Antonio Esfandiari, also known as The Magician, is one of the stars of the new show I Bet You. Antonio started doing magic and playing poker professionally at the age of 21. He came from Iran, which is a very rigid place when it comes to gambling. At the age of 25, he won his first title where he was also the youngest World Poker Tour Champion. He took home $1.4 million, making him the worldäs youngest poker millionaire. After five months, Antonio won his first bracelet at the World Series of Poker, beating 365 people. Today, Antonio is the representative of WPT Poker-Made Millionaire, and he is now dubbed as the King of Nightlife in Las Vegas.

Phil Laak

Phil Laak, also known as the Unabomber because of his trademark sweatshirt and sunglasses, is one of the best poker players in history. He got the title of the 2004 World Poker Tour and took second place in the World Series of Poker 2005. He also visited London for the William Hill Poker Grand Prix and took home almost $240,000. Phil never ceases to amaze his audience. He recently took the poker world by surprise by beating the world’s greatest computer program, Polaris, for the second time around. Phil Laak turned down his life as an engineer and instead focused on poker 24/7.
