Winning the biggest tournament in poker history is good for the bankroll. It’s also good for the sponsorship opportunities as well. Just two weeks after Antonio Esfandiari won the $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop he’s signed on to be the newest member of Team 3Bet, joining good friend Brian Rast, Scott Clements and Greg Mueller.

“I had my eye on 3Bet for a few months, but when I saw their product in person at the start of the WSOP, I knew I had to get involved,” said Esfandiari. “Poker is in dire need of a clothing line that is both stylish and comfortable, and I was such an instant fan of what 3Bet is doing as a company, that I came on board as an owner even before the 1 Drop tournament started.”

3Bet is a clothing company founded by two poker players who have extensive experience in the clothing business. Co-founder Kevin Talbot founded the “Heart & Soul” fashion line which is distributed at major department stores nationwide and recently sold an interest in the company for “eight figures”.

“I put my money and experience into 3Bet because I think the real growth in poker is still ahead,” said Talbot. “When the online game comes back to the United States, you’re going to see another explosion in interest and 3Bet will be the apparel line that connects players of all skill levels to the game they love.”

Also part of the ownership team are Jonathan Little, David Sands, John Phan as well as Rast, Clements and Mueller.

The current group of products includes hats, hoodies and t-shirts with free shipping in the United States. For more information or to check out the limited edition Antonio’s One Drop t-shirts visit
