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.
