Poker Stories Podcast Mike Sexton: Spent Many Years Betting 'Way More Than I Had'
Poker Stories Is A New Audio Series That Features The Game's Best Players and Personalities
Poker Stories is a new, long-form audio series that features casual interviews with some of the game’s best players and personalities. Each episode highlights a well-known member of the poker world and dives deep into their favorite tales both on and off the felt.
Mike Sexton is a legend of the game, not only for his achievements as a player, but also as one of poker’s greatest ambassadors. The 69-year-old member of the Poker Hall of Fame is perhaps best known for his work as a commentator for the last 15 seasons on the World Poker Tour.
But Sexton has also proven that his game is as sharp as his wit with a WPT title of his own, a WSOP bracelet and the Tournament of Champions title. Sexton is also the author of two books, the most recent being an autobiography titled Life’s A Gamble.
Highlights from this interview include collegiate gymnastics, growing up with a fellow poker great, volunteering for Vietnam, working as a salesman, a passion for little league coaching, crazy North Carolina home games, betting more than you have, why shag dance music is the greatest, and a big sweat with Ivey.
You can check out the entirety of the audio interview in the video at the top of the page or download it directly to play on the go from iTunes or your favorite podcast app.
