Mike Sexton Gains Title

Mike Sexton is not a strange name anymore due to the popular poker show that is televised, known as World Poker Tour.


Mike and Vince Van Patten are commentators on the show, which has gained a lot of popularity in recent times. Mike Sexton is now in the Hall of Fame as he has completed fifteen years of commentating from the booth. He won the trophy after breaking about 648 entries which were part of the 2016 no limit hold’em event organized by partypoker.net. Mike has been long in the game and at 69 years he won about $317,896 USD which he took home and added his name to the WPT champions list.

Sexton reached the final table of WPT for the third time. Usually Sexton is at the commentator position, but this time Tony Dunst took his place. Sexton meanwhile, being a collegiate gymnast as well as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division, was able to play well and achieve the title position.

Sexton is a member of the Poker Hall of Fame as well as a bracelet winner of the WSOP. He was awarded the Player of the Year with certain points that he gained because of the win. Chen was playing against Sexton and that is when heads up play started. About 106 hands were available and that narrowed down the field from six to two players. The battle saw Chen being in the lead mostly, but Sexton was able to make comebacks several times and the blinds were rising higher, keeping the dream alive. Those who watched the tournament were thrilled with the way the battle progressed as the cards fell and the players adjusted their strategies accordingly. That is how challenges are won and how the show becomes spectacular for those who are watching it.
