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!
