The Voice of Poker is no more. Rest In Peace Mike. I, like many others will miss your positive energy and especially your passion for the game you loved so much Folded hands
Learning poker in the Moneymaker era I’d constantly see loud & obnoxious “pros” which didn’t appeal to me. Mike Sexton truly was a gentleman of the game who acted like he’d been there before regardless of result. A class act who showed me how you should act on the felt. RIP
Mike could play. He obviously became a hell of a commentator and overall positive figure for the game, but I’ll always remember him as a player who became a commentator.

Ran into Mike at WPT Choctaw 2015, during one of the lowest points of my life. He was more than happy to join me for a selfie and was such a positive person. It mattered a lot to me that he did.
I remember one WSOP I drew Mike’s table and we both got there a few minutes early. I was amazed by his constant stream of well-wishers that stopped by before “cards in the air.”
Old friends, tournament officials, WPT fans… Everyone got that smile.
RIP to a legend of the game
