Mike Sexton Speaks Out About Joe Hachem’s Comments
Last week, former World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Hachem claimed that Jamie Gold and Jerry Yang – also former WSOP Main Event winners – had destroyed the world champion legacy. It was an interview that got the poker community’s tongues wagging, including the legend that is Mike Sexton.
Sexton agrees with Hachem’s comments, stating: “I said for years that poker never really grew because the vast majority of past World Champions just never gave back or promoted the game.”
Take Your Team to the Poker Champions Cup
partypoker is giving its players the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in the upcoming Poker Champions Cup. Held at the home of Italian football giants Juventus in Turin.
