Mori Eskandani is a television producer and poker player from Tehran, Iran. While in the US as an exchange student in 1975 Eskandani was introduced to poker by a fellow business student. The two soon moved to Las Vegas to play professionally.
Eskandani’s poker business ventures began one night while leaving the Golden Nugget following a deep tournament run. He met card room manager Eric Drache and the two began a long business relationship and friendship. Eskandani would go on to become the poker host at the Mirage, leading to a friendship with Henry Orenstein, the inventor of the hold card camera. This friendship and Orenstein’s invention would shape the face of televised poker.
