It is really nice to see that Mike Sexton is still in this tournament. With his stack, he is going to need to get very lucky to progress to the final table but you never know what could happen

Mike Sexton kazhetsyane as I can get to the final table in poker ... but can happen anywhere ... doubling your bank, you can of course, but for this he must very lucky ... the players remaining in the tournament also good play must therefore be very interesting hands to defeat Mike Sexton

absolutely over the moon hearing the fact that dude with so so sexy surname mike sexton is still somewhere at the tables, hopefully not under the tables. obviously what strikes me reading the list of remaining dudes is that this secretive dude at tables nr.2 seat nr. 3 has found a way to hide his identity from the world.

Now they are down to 6 players and Mike is the chip leader for the televised final table which he usually is the commentator Big Smile who usually replace him?

Mike Sexton started the day with a mere 10 big blinds and finished day 3 of the WPT Montreal Main Event with 530,000 (18 big blinds) in chips. He now got a bit of breathing room, but still needs some work to do.

Typo: needs → has/has got

Mike sexton deep in a tournament? That's a pretty rare sight! He's a great analyst and very good at poker but I always felt like he's too rational to be a great player. He tends to play ABC poker and gets predictable for other players. Still, a good tight agressive player who can bluff once in a while can with tournaments. But in today's small ball x2 raises MTT poker, it's harder to just rely on winning the big pots to win tourneys.

Hey, there are other sexy surnames still in play - like 'Ho' and 'Gag-non' maybe they could monetize on their names after this one.
