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.
In 2003, Mori started “Poker PROductions” and has gone on to produce what most would consider television’s greatest poker programming including: High Stakes Poker, World Series of Poker, Poker After Dark, and NBC’s National Heads-Up Poker Champion. Learn more about Mori Eskandani
