Since 2002, as WPT host and PartyPoker spokesman, he has firmly established himself as one of the best-recognized voices and faces of poker, a model ambassador and a dedicated champion of the game. He was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2009.
As a player, Mike Sexton hasn't missed a single WSOP since 1988 and has actually cashed in every single World Series since 1988, including a bracelet win in 1989! His current score is 61 paid places and $3,475,428 (Including the $1 million win in the 2006 Tournament of Champions), which puts him in 13th position in the all-time worldwide ranking by WSOP ITM.
