Drache and Eskandani Enter

[user20283] • Taso 2: 400-800, 100 ante

As if the tournament didn't have enough huge names playing, we just spotted Eric Drache and Mori Eskandani as well.

Eskandani is the producer of many poker television shows such as High Stakes Poker, Poker After Dark and the NBC National Heads-Up Championship. Today, Eskandani's company POKER PROductions films the Big One for One Drop final table and the big boss himself decided to play in this event.

Drache, who lost heads up for the bracelet in this tournament to Freddie Ellis back in 2009, was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame back in 2012. Drache was one of the creators of the Hall and the WSOP tournament director from 1973 until 1988. Drache has also been credited with inventing satellite tournaments and running the poker rooms at the Mirage and Golden Nugget.
