Well-known poker professional Antonio Esfandiari was disqualified from a tournament for urinating in a bottle at the table.
Yes, you read that right. The often unpredictable and sometimes outrageous world of professional poker has done it again. According to PokerNews, it happened Sunday night at the Atlantis in the Bahamas, which is hosting the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure tournament series.
The incident seems to have been the result of a prop/side bet Esfandiari made with businessman and amateur poker player Bill Perkins. The bet called for Esfandiari to literally lunge everywhere he went for 48 hours during the poker tournament. That included having to lunge from his room to the elevator, to the poker table and even to the bathroom. Esfandiari would not say exactly how much this unusual side bet was for, but he told reporters he was willing to do anything to avoid losing.
Apparently, it was for enough money that Esfandiari did not want to lunge while taking a bathroom break during his participation in the $5,300 buy-in Main Event on Day 2 of the tournament. So Esfandiari got a bottle, a towel and some people to stand around him while he relieved himself.
Tournament organizers weren't amused. European Poker Tour President Edgar Stuchly says Esfandiari was removed for, "a serious breach of tournament etiquette."
In an interview with PokerNews, Esfandiari apologized for his "childish" behavior.
