Mr Mirzikinian is a renowned Australian poker player who has competed in a number high roller events.

He had been involved in the industry for almost 10 years and has amassed more than $640,000 in winnings. 

Mr Mirzikinian has collected nearly $100,000 this year at events at Star Sydney, the Nine Network said.  

He lives in a lavish four-bedroom home with his wife Kristy, who is a friend of PR queen Roxy Jacenko.

The death was the fifth cyclist fatality on NSW Roads in 2017, Transport NSW said.

Mr Mirzikinian’s wife last year made headlines when a sinkhole the size of a backyard swimming pool opened up outside their Point Piper home, cutting power and interrupting personal training sessions. 

‘My personal trainer has come, my electricity is off and now I don’t know what to do,’ said Ms Mirzikinian in her blue gym gear and clutching a Mercedes Benz umbrella.
