Aussie Poker Champ Charged with Cyclist's Death

Australian businessman and professional poker player Warwick Mirzikinian was issued a court attendance notice for dangerous driving and negligent driving occasioning death of an UberEATS delivery cyclist in Sydney.

The incident occurred on November 13 last year when the Tesla of the poker champ hit the 26-year-old French cyclist, Julien Trameaux. Although there were no charges made at the time of the incident, further investigation and examination of evidence showed the reckless driving of Mirizikinian during that time.

On February 18, 2018, Mirzikinian appeared at Rose Bay police station and was issued with a notice to appear before the Downing Centre Local Court magistrate on April 18. If found guilty, under the New South Wales' penal code, the poker champ may face up to 10 years imprisonment.

Mainstream media suggests that Mirzikinian is one of the best-known poker players in Australia. However, a closer look at his professional statistics shows a sort of on-and-off career. His best year came in 2017 when he bagged four tournament wins and banked nearly $300,000.

Mirzikinian has a total of $756,878 tournament winnings. He is currently ranked 57th in Australia for live tournament winnings.

If this Australian Warwick Mirzikinian drove chaotic and killed a man then to pay with jail. Each guilty should pay for his deeds. I do not care if he's a pro poker player or an super star, every man has to be responsible on the road. A driver passed with his car on my leg and i do not like idiot drivers.

What a tragic story this is and i really hope that justice can be found for this cyclist. If he did cause the death by reckless driving, he should be punished accordingly by the letter of the law

So many accidents in the streets. Everywhere have become worst drivers.
It is not only that the amount of vehicles has increased, but they cant stop
talking on the phones, texting etc, while driving.
At some point they had strict laws for all these here, but the police didnt do anything about it, enforcing them.

No one should avoid punishment. Even if it's a movie-star, sport-star, poker-star or other star. It's very unfair, that famous people are judged morel lightly than normal man. It's sick!
If he's guilty - he should go to jail.

There is a strong chance of Warwick Mirzikinian getting sued by not only the victim's family but Uber Eats. He will likely face a long prison sentence for vehicular manslaughter, and he can be found liable in a civil case also.
