Event #55: The $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Kravchenko Puts Sexton Out of his Misery

Chad_Holloway • Level 9


We noticed Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton wasn't in his seat, and a quick check with Mike Leah confirmed he had busted. According to him, Sexton got his last 13,000 or so in the pot straight away holding {a-}{4-}{4-} and was up against Alex Kravchenko, who started with {a-}{2-}{2-}. Kravchenko ended up making jacks and deuces, which was enough to eliminate the unimproved Sexton.

Likewise, Argentina's Nacho Barbero has been sent to the rail.
