Poker pro Antonio Esfandiari was disqualified from PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event for peeing in a cup under the table. “The Magician” peed in a bottle under the table, which drew the ire of the tournament staff. PCA officials quickly gave Esfandiari the boot for a “breach of etiquette.”
Esfandiari and poker-playing businessman Bill Perkins had a prop bet that called for Esfandiari to lunge everywhere he went for 48 hours. Lunging, according to the definition of this particular prop bet, involves lurching from standing position onto one knee, then back up to standing position and down onto the other knee.Watch movie online The Lego Batman Movie (2017)
Apparently, during a break, he had to piss but his legs were too sore to go to the restroom. Instead he got a bottle and people block the public’s vie while he took a piss. When word reached the tournament director, Esfandiari was immediately disqualified and his 110k stack forfeited.
There’s no word on exactly how much money was on the line in Esandiari’s prop bet with Perkins. But it must have been a significant amount for Esfandiari to decide that it was worth peeing in a bottle at a live poker tournament.
