Mike Sexton (a.k.a. ‘the Ambassador of Poker”) has just been named to the Poker Hall of Fame.
He becomes the 38th player named to the Hall.
The competition was tough and included Phil Ivey and Barry Greenstein.
Sexton, of course, has impeccable credentials. He’s won more than $3.7 million playing poker and a World Series of Poker bracelet. In 2006, he won the WSOP Tournament of Champions.
There is no doubt that Sexton met all of the criteria for being a Hall of Famer including having played poker against acknowledged competition, played for high stakes, played consistently well, and earned the respect of his peers.
And, with 30 years experience, his career has stood the test of time.
Sexton promotes the positive sides of the game. His generosity knows no bounds. He even donated half of his $1 million prize from the WSOP Tournament of Champions to a variety of charities.
So here’s to you, Mike.
And I’m “all in” … when it comes to your induction.
