About This Luminary

Antonio Esfandiari

Professional Poker Player

No one has won more money in professional poker than Antonio Esfandiari. A magician whose sleight-of-hand is almost as impressive as his poker play, Esfandiari has won two World Poker Tour championships and three World Series of Poker bracelets. In 2012 he won the Big One for One Drop, earning an unprecedented $18.3 million, the biggest cash prize in poker history. Esfandiari has turned his success at the tables into success on screen, appearing in HBO's Entourage and playing an undercover cop in the Robert De Niro film Freelancers. He is currently the face of World Poker Tour's Poker-Made Millionaire and is the host of Strip Magic, a web series featuring live magic on the Las Vegas Strip.

ONE DROP

ONE DROP is a non-profit organization initiated by Cirque du Soleil Founder Guy Laliberté that strives to ensure that water is accessible to all, today and forever. Water is the most critical challenge facing the XXIst century. Although it is essential to life, nearly 800 million people lack access to water while 2.5 billion are deprived of access to adequate sanitation. By 2025, 5.3 billion people—two-thirds of the world’s population—could lack access to enough water to meet their basic daily requirements. Using a one-of-a-kind sustainable intervention model, ONE DROP develops innovative water access and management projects which promote self-reliance in disadvantaged, rural and semi-rural regions of Latin America, West Africa and Asia. The programs launched from ONE DROP's inception until the end of 2014 will transform the lives of 1 million people.
