When Mike Sexton won the 2006 WSOP Tournament
of Champions, he had to beat two great players at
the end of a grueling final table: Mike Matusow who
placed 3rd and Daniel Negreanu who was runner-up.
Mike won $1,000,000 for 1st place, and decided to
donate $500,000 to charity. He selected five worthy
causes and donated $100,000 to each one:
(1) Paralyzed Veterans Of America
(2) The Buoniconti Fund
(3) The Woulded Warrior Project
(4) The Special Olympics
(5) Children Incorporated
|POKER'S AMAZING BIG GAME
Welcome to the high stakes world of David Oppenheim.
We are about to learn how he made the huge leap of
starting out playing $1/$2 limit poker in 7 Card Stud and
Limit Hold-Em, as he literally had to play poker in
disguises at the young age of 16 in the California
Casinos, to become one of the most successful and
feared big game cash players on the planet today! This
is a dream only a handful achieve, as most of us wish
we could only figure out the mysterious secrets to make
this actually all happen in our lives.
1ST POKER AMBASSADOR
Mike Sexton has been a poker visionary and pioneer
for many years. Just look where poker was in the
past and where it has come to today. Who would have
ever dreamed such a big leap was going to
happen for all of us, who love to play poker?
The answer is very simple: My brother, Mike Sexton. Of
course I'm very proud of him, for all he has done for
the poker world… what brother wouldn't be?
When we all play poker, there are some interesting
stories we'll come across, just talking and listening to
the other players in the game. So it was about one
month ago, when I was playing in an action packed
Omaha high game at Boulder Station in Las Vegas,
Nevada. The player next to me was someone I had
just met, named Buck Lyons. He said he was born in
Las Vegas in 1943, and became a dice dealer for the
legendary Benny Binion at Binion's Horseshoe.
|THE WORLD'S BIGGEST GAMBLER
Can you imagine anyone driving to Las Vegas in 1992
with $50 in his pocket, then borrowing $10,000 to start
playing $200/400 razz and seven-card stud, and in six
months, running it up to a $17,000,000 fortune
shooting pool, playing poker, and shooting dice?
Then, instead of cashing out, he decides to gamble
sky-high and runs his bankroll to over $40,000,000,
before losing it all back by 1995?
If you like action, big pots, and a chance to buy one
extra card for a dollar at the beginning of a hand, you
need to check out two special $3/6 tables at the
Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada, right away! As you walk
into the poker room and look to the left or right, the
third table over in either direction has a different red
table cloth covering, featuring a new game logo for the
players, Texas Hold'em Plus.
Hats off to the players, staff members, ESPN, and all
the other media members who helped make the 2007
WSOP the best one ever! I had the good fortune of
working as a reporter for the first time for
PokerNews.com. I was able to write up key hands
throughout the 55 events, help with chip counts, do a
few Final Tables myself, and do color background
stories on many of the players that participated. I was
blown away by the hard work and professionalism of
the whole team! From the inside, I would like to give
you a few observations about Jerry Yang, our 2007
WSOP Main Event Champion.
We've all seen ballistic poker players go off like a
helicopter occasionally and basically become a
source of entertainment for the table. I've often thought
that besides the rake and the $1.00 bad beat withheld
by the dealer, perhaps another $1.00 should be
collected from each player, in the form of a cover
charge, for the live entertainment the misbehaved
player is creating for the rest of the table. To have
composure under fire is not easy, not just in the poker
world, but in life in general. Challenges, hurdles, and
various obstacles are a common denominator we all
face every day. The big question is...
"How do we handle it?
