Subject: A hand I played(poorly?) against Mike Sexton
This event happened a long time ago, at the old Gold Coast Open, before
Sexton became rich and Famous.

It was a limit holdem tournament, and we were down to the last 3 tables. I
had pocket eights, and Sexton had a bigger pocket pair. I don't remember
the board. He was betting all the way, and I was calling. On the river I
caught an eight, and check raised him.He paid off, then made the following
remark.

"If you had led, I would have raised you, and then called a reraise, and
you would have won an extra bet."

I often wondered if that remark was truth? indicating that I misplayed the
hand, or just sour Grapes?

I eventually took third in that event.

Generally you're better off respecting the betting lead there as you did.
Mike, if he's being honest, is an anomaly.

I doubt he was being honest. Taking the lead after checking and calling on
the previous rounds
is telegraphing a strong hand that will probably get a call but not a
raise.

You won way more by being lucky and getting there, then you lost on that
single bet.

You may have played the hand poorly, but not in the way that you are
portraying.

His bookie is for sure. You know the basement players, I know the
Penthouse boys and Sexton has virtually lost his ass betting sports.
Money is far more important when you're young. I'm over 60 now and
don't need anywhere near what I spent earlier in life. I don't worry
about money as I have enough to live comfortably. Again your blowing
things threw your ass you have no idea about. If I had a Billion now,
what good would it do me? Coudln't spend it and would die with most
going to the government.

He just started betting more on sports. No matter how much you have,
you can lose it gambling. You're a fool if you think he stopped sports
betting or it hasn't gotten most of the money.

And probably true. He's certainly famous in the poker world from his
WPT announcing efforts. And probably rich from his piece of Party
Poker.

Of course it is true ... if you believe it was true. Maybe Mike really
believed what he said, but that does not matter if you believe what he said.
Or maybe it was sour grapes ... or maybe just fermented grapes ... and not a
good year ... just a poor whine.
