Mike Sexton On WPT L.A. Poker Classic Final Table

Posted on 02 March 2017 by "T".

partypoker ambassador and WPT commentator Mike Sexton made it to the final table of the WPT L.A. Poker Classic $10,000 Main Event on Wednesday evening after five days of play.

Sexton has played many WPT events over the past decade but it wasn't until last year that he finally captured his first title at the Season XV WT Montreal Main Event. Now, he's suddenly chasing a second WPT title in the same WPT season, which is pretty remarkable!

He will enter today's televised final table in fifth place with 1,165,000 in chips and is already guaranteed to take home at least $191,490. The winner of the tournament will take home just over 1 million dollars. If it's Mike Sexton who captures the title and the massive first-place prize, then he will have over $7,000,000 in live tournament earnings!

Final table line up:
Seat 1: Mike Sexton - 1,165,000
Seat 2: Jesse Martin - 2,540,000
Seat 3: Jared Griener - 1,895,000
Seat 4: Daniel Strelitz - 6,485,000
Seat 5: Simeon Naydenov - 2,860,000
Seat 6: Richard Tuhrim - 680,000

I love to see such a great poker person like mike sextin having good tournament once again, but to win the title he will have to play very well and be lucky too, leader has more than 5 times bigger chips balance, so he has to make mustakes to lose some of it

mike sexton huh... brings back the memories... back in the days me and mike used to sell weed on the street, but that's where the parallels end- he used the cash he earned from hard work selling joints to rap stars to start his poker career, and i smoked all the weed myself, suppliers came in calling for cash and had to snap of my right ball for violation of the weed trafficking rules... from then on i live cashless and ballless.

That is where I knew this was a fairytale.
No self-respecting rap star gonna buy just dimebags and joints if they want some weed. They either get a couple of ounces or nothing at all.

i didn't say it was a self-respecting rap star, i just said rap star, didn't open up the precise info that it was one of those 99% of rap stars who are completely owning it with their "gold" chains borrowed from local cows and spray painted with gold colour and some oversized second hand clothes returned from donation packages sent to malawi...

We already know that Mike Sexton finished fourth in this event. He has been running pretty good lately. He won the WPT Montreal main event late last year and he managed to make a deep run again this time.
I like his salmon-pink button-down shirt! It suits him very well!
 pochui07/03/2017 21:34:30 GMT
well i am not into this style guru and designer thingies that deep as our japanese fashionista tony mon7ana, but i have a feeling that this salmon pink button down shirt would look a heck lot cooler on mikey sexton with word "sex" embroidered on it...
