Mike Sexton is fortunate to have the honor of having a huge tournament named after him. He is one of the most successful poker players and definitely deserves some favors or facilities from casinos or many professional rivals.

Yes this man was the face of Party Poker for a long time. All the message that I recieved from them were firmed by Mike Sexton and add his photo face. I feel his gace and name like someone really known, but I don´t know anything about him. Here I noticed that he was a champion...

Life is a game, like this Mike Sexton said and even if he plagiarized or not, these words tell the truth. This man is a poker ambassador just like many others, but his results are good enough to get the name of a big tournament.

Values are rewarded in most areas and these things should be everywhere. Performers have talent, mind, physical condition, concentration etc ... and for that ( to win 1st place ) they try to make good results. Respect is a beautiful gesture. Awards the same.

"Those who achieve SUCCESS are those that take a DREAM and make it come true." ,this is a very nice quote to have in life as a guide , follow it , follow your dreams . He had a dream for sure , he fought to make it a reality , he achived it with the help of some people , he also had success on the felt , now he is honoured with this recognition by WPT for everything he has done in relation to poker . He deserves it Smile

In a few years there will be many tournaments, that will have the names of professional players who have died or are alive. As a sign of gratitude this will happen and it is something good, because as a comparison in other sports the resorts are named after great athletes / footballers etc...

He was the one to have the idea of such kind of a tournament , where you wouldn't get your seat with a direct biu on , but with a victory in a WPT event you are qualified for it gfor all your life . It's his idea , he deserves this trophy to be named after him , what more fair than this , besides anything else (like his contribution to the poker worldwide or his personal achievements on the poker games Smile)

I think he also contributed to advertising... in this field called poker, because he is an American professional commentator and there he learned many strategies from professional players. This tournament deserves its name but it is normal for other famous gamblers to receive same in other games.
