Last night Antonio Esfandiari won $18.3 Million dollars at the World Series of Poker “Big One for One Drop” tournament. It is the largest prize money in poker history and has been called “the greatest individual prize in the history of sports”.
What a great accomplishment.
Esfandiari (aka “The Magician”) attributed the victory to his recent coaching which has included a lifestyle change and having a mindset of ‘clear intention’ to win.

Some online research reveals Esfandiari’s “mindset” coach is Sam Chauhan. Chauhan is a modern-day “power of positive thinking” coach who has found a niche with professional poker stars. He wrote numerous articles for Bluff magazine several years ago.
