Amir Vahedi is dead. The poker pro Amir Vahedi died due to complications from diabetes. Amir Vahedi's death was made public via a twitter feed. There is also a blog post from another Poker Pro Mark Seif. I have quoted the blog post below:

“I’ve just been told by close friends of Amir Vahedi, that Vahedi passed away in Las Vegas on January 8, 2010, due to complications involving blood sugar levels. Waiting for for more details. Devastating news. Very very sad.”

Some achievements and awards of Amir Vahedi:

  • Named Texas Hold'em Player of the year (2001)
