Un uomo amatissimo. Dopo la sua scomparsa, Mike Sexton ha lasciato un vuoto probabilmente incolmabile nella comunità pokeristica. Ecco i saluti degli amici
Sono state davvero tante le manifestazioni di affetto alla famiglia e agli amici più stretti di Mike Sexton, a confermarne, se ce ne fosse bisogno, la statura di un uomo che ha dato tanto al nostro movimento, come vi avevamo scritto qui.
Ecco solo alcuni saluti apparsi sui social in questi giorni.
A competitor, a friend, a remarkable human being.
RIP Mike Sexton

A gutting loss. Mike Sexton was a giant for the game. Very few people did more for the game of poker than he did. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. https://t.co/qZduLo34tE

It’s rare when you meet your heroes in real life that they exceed your expectations but Mike really did that for me. It’s amazing how many people’s lives he’s touched and I’ve never heard a bad word said about him. Truly an inspirational and charismatic person @Mike_partypoker pic.twitter.com/Ku1GyRkUIF

Such a tragic loss for the poker community. Mike was a true gentleman of the game. A champion on and off the felt. Rest in Peace Mike. I feel privileged to have known you all these years. You will be missed.

Mike rebranded poker playing into a respectable endeavor. He was the first to get endorsements. Although it prevented him from pursuing his passion for playing poker tournaments, he became a WPT announcer so he could be a steward for the future of poker.https://t.co/3eiTucCcgV

Not sure poker has had a more well like, well respected person than Mike Sexton. Sometimes in death people embellish how someone lived but from what I saw and experienced that couldn’t farther from the truth in Mikes case. RIP.
