  1. Shawn Sheikhan

    Shahram "Shawn" Sheikhan (born 1969 in Iran) is a professional poker player who currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada with his wife and daughter. Sheikhan is the owner of a retail chain of tobacco and tattoo stores. Sheikhan is known for having terrible table etiquette. At the 2005 World Series of Poker (WSOP) he got into a much-publicized war of words with Mike Matusow after Sheikhan slammed the table when seeing a flop on a hand he was not involved in. Both players got a penalty since Matusow used a vulgarity after Sheikhan made the inappropriate reaction that gave away what his hand was, thus giving other players who were still in the hand free information that may have altered the outcome of the hand. Sheikhan was involved in several more incidents, one involving Phil Hellmuth on Poker After Dark when Hellmuth accused Shawn of refusing to stop talking while he was playing in a hand with Annie Duke, though in fact the entire table were conversing. In March 2006, Sheikhan made the final four of NBC's National Heads-Up Poker Championship (during the early rounds of which he told Gus Hansen, whom he eliminated, to throw away his cards - Sheikhan had made Four of a kind), earning $125,000. He lost to eventual winner Ted Forrest. In July 2007 Sheikhan placed 3rd in the World Series of Poker No Limit Deuce to Seven Lowball event. He also won a Poker After Dark title defeating a field which consisted of Phil Laak, Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow and Antonio Esfandiari. This first place finish earned him $120,000. He has also appeared in the GSN television series High Stakes Poker in which he intentionally ripped and broke an expensive pair of Matusow's sunglasses. As of January 2015, his total live tournament winnings exceed $1,460,000. His 10 cashes at the WSOP account for $1,160,910 of those winnings.While driving in heavy rain during the 1999 Las Vegas flood, Sheikhan lost control of his vehicle and collided with another car, resulting in the death of one of its passengers.
