Daniel Strelitz Wins WPT L.A. Poker Classic, Mike Sexton Finished 4th

Tags: Daniel Strelitz, Mike Sexton, WPT L.A. Poker Classic.
Posted on Friday, March 03, 2017 by "T".

Daniel Strelitz topped a field of 521 runners over 6 days of play to win over a million dollars in the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic $10,000 Main Event! The 27-year-old poker pro from California now has over $2.6 million in live tournament earnings!

"It's great, I'm so happy that my entire family and my in-laws were here. It's unbelievable, my Dad starting at the beginning of Day 2 he was there, and he saw every single hand that I played until now when I won. From Day 2! It's a six-day tournament! His dedication is unbelievable. I can't believe it, he's a crazy person, but I appreciate it so much," said Strelitz.

Strelitz might be the champion of the tournament but for the better part of the 6-handed final table on Thursday all eyes were on another man, Mike Sexton, who was looking to win the second WPT title of his career in the very same season. Sexton started the final table in 5th place and managed to hold on until the 78th hand of play...

Mike SextonSexton moved all in with pocket kings and was called by Strelitz with Ace-Seven offsuit. The board delivered a full house for Strelitz and Sexton was out in 4th place for $300,690. Funnily enough it was the second time of the tournament that Sexton lost with pocket kings against Strelitz's Ace-Seven...

"It was very nice, and it's thrilling to get to a final table. And as you said, I could have gone out in fifth place, I could have gone out in sixth. Ironically, I had two kings twice against [Strelitz], he had ace-seven offsuit both times, and he beat me both times. That's pretty unusual, just shows you I think destiny is on his side," said Sexton after the hand. When asked if he was going to jump back into the WPT Commentator Booth, Sexton added, "No, I'm not going back to work. Tony [Dunst] can do it! I'm taking the night off, I'm going to the bar!"


1st:  Daniel Strelitz - $1,001,110*

2nd: Simeon Naydenov - $672,190

3rd:  Jared Griener - $431,340

4th:  Mike Sexton - $300,690

5th:  Jesse Martin - $230,380

6th:  Richard Tuhrim - $191,490

* First-prize amount includes the winner's $15,

Very disappointed that mike sexton was out in 4th place, and look how stupid was his loss, he had kk's vs a7 off suit, much better hand, and all in preflop, Mike had to win this hand, but kuck was on the other players side, this makes me sad a bit

You have to be very unlucky to lose twice with K K against A 7 and then we say that poker is a game of skill.

Now losing one hand when you start in front happen to everybody but twice in the FT is very outraging and of course directly to the bar and get drunk to forget these hands.

Next time maybe will be your turn. Question Question

Come on that is pretty standard even on this level...

mikey mikey... you came to and end this time, and the street is calling you back, your poker career is officially over now, since you can't even win with pocket kings vs a7off, you even manage to lose with the same hand to the same hand twice in one tourney to the same guy... just forget it man, poker is not your thing... go into porn industry, make a ton of sex movies.

Many congratulations to Daniel Strelitz on taking down this title and just over a million dollars first prize. I was hoping that Mike Sexton would win but he should be very proud of reaching another final table

Gratz for this nice winning...over one million Dollars for a week of work was a really good cash Smile But it was nice to see, that a poker pro with a lot of experience like Mike Sexton can win against the new generation of poker players with his nice 4th place!

I was hoping that Sexton will be able to maintain the reputation of a great player who despite his age can play at a good level and will teach the game of many players ..... but bet ace and 7 against the two kings is certainly a mistake for fish

Congratulations to Daniel Strelitz on being crowned champion of the WPT L.A. Poker Classic main event! Congratulations also to Mike Sexton for his fourth place finish. I am looking forward to watching the tournament coverage on YouTube.

you know dudes, i am still crying, like having crocodile tears pouring down my cheeks because of the fact that my street amigo mikey sex/ton didn't finish at least 3rd... no medal for mikey is the saddest thing one can witness in this fierce and competitive world of live poker.

I am not sure I can agree with you 'cuz I've honestly seen some rough stuff at the tables, but 'no medal for mikey' still a great catchphrase nevertheless.
