PCA Organizers Pissed at Poker Pro Esfandiari for Urinating at Table

One of the biggest poker earners of all time, Antonio Esfandiari, was disqualified over the weekend from a PCA event after he was caught urinating into an empty bottle at the poker table. 

The action was tied to a side bet but deemed "inappropriate" by event organizers.  Esfandiari had about 115,000 in chips at the time of the disqualification. 

"I am embarrassed of the actions I took to win that bet", Esfandiari admitted later on.

He was interviewed by PokerNews about the incident.  Watch below
