675,942 | The Bounty

Five months after winning the Mega Millions event during WSOP Circuit Los Angeles, Irvine native Mike Shariati was back at it at the Bicycle Casino on Friday, defeating two-time WPT Champion Freddy Deeb heads-up to win the WPT Legends of Poker.

Shariati collects $675,942 for the victory, not bad for the very first WPT result of his career on the live tournament circuit!
