1,332,482 | Mike Shariati is WPT’s L.A. King

Mike Shariati became a household name last September following his unexpected victory at the WPT Legends of Poker in Los Angeles, defeating the legendary Freddy Deeb heads-up for the title.

Six months later, Shariati was back in the LA spotlight, this time attempting to win the WPT L.A. Poker Classic, one of the most prestigious tournament on the live poker circuit. He would once again make it to heads-up play, this time finishing second to German Dietrich Fast.

Although he wouldn’t win, he would almost match his total winnings from August, collecting $1,332,482 for his two remarkable Los Angeles performances - well done, Mike!
