    Description

    Mike Sexton is a legend in the poker world.

    In a life spanning over four decades as a poker professional, Mike has excelled both on the felt and on the business side of poker. He is a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner, helped create PartyPoker in 2001, and was a key player in an event that changed the poker world forever - the launch of the World Poker Tour (WPT) in 2002. He has been a commentator on the WPT, along with Vince Van Patten, since its inception.

    In addition, Mike was recognized as poker's Top Ambassador at the Card Player Magazine Player of the Year Awards gala in 2006. That same year, he won WSOP Tournament of Champions, winning $1 million in prize money - half of which he donated to charity. He was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2009.

    In this book, Mike recounts his personal experiences and gives his take on some of poker's legendary characters over the past 40 years. If you enjoy poker, are fascinated by the development of the game, and enjoy compelling poker, golf, and gambling adventures, then you'll love Life's a Gamble.

    Outstanding Gambling Memoir

    You likely know Mike Sexton from his enthusiastic commentary on the world poker tour, the televised poker show that changed poker forever and helped ignite the poker boom.
    Before listening to his narration of his own memoir, that's all I knew about the author. I now know far more, and in as entertaining a manner as it's possible to learn about someone's fascinating life.
    This book is not only about Mike; it is filled with stories of many of the legendary gambling names of the last two generations. I heard stories here I had heard nowhere else. While I would never want to live those stories, they were fascinating to learn.
    Highly recommended.

    A Great Life's Story Told by the Man Himself!

    I definitely loved Mike's story & loved that he himself narrated it which really makes it even. Have always liked Mike Sexton over the years but like & appreciate him even more after listening to his book. You do not have to be a big poker guy to really enjoy this book it's really a good & entertaining book.

    An inspirational story of a life well lived.

    More golf and ballroom dancing then I expected but Mike had a great life and a great attitude towards life. He had some good luck but he was also bold enough to put himself in situations where he could get lucky. Fun read.

    Fantastic!

    Mike will be missed.
    He was a true gentleman, a straight shooter and matured into a proud family man.
    Under rated on the felt but can't say enough about his character!
    Rest well Mike.

    Wow, just wow

    Mike Sexton delivers a masterpiece (I couldn't stop listening). This is my favorite book of all time! He is an outstanding storyteller and gives a lot of valuable advice/lessons learned from his life. The stories are amusing/enjoyable and Sexton reading the book is icing on the cake. I highly recommend this; it's well worth it.

    Mr. Sexton, thank you for everything you have done for the poker community and for your service! We all owe you a debt of gratitude and a tip of the hat. Your cards are still live in your battle with cancer! Now it's your turn to hit the 10 on the river!! I'm in your corner on the rail, cheering you on.

    Passion does not make up for it...

    A very dry and unorganized chronicle of the author’s life however passion there may be
