Mike Sexton is an American professional poker player and commentator, and has been inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame.

Sexton was born in Shelbyville, Indiana, on September 22, 1947, the son of a high school teacher and a homemaker. He has three brothers and one sister. Sexton graduated from Shelbyville High School in 1965 and then attended Ohio State University on a gymnastics scholarship. After two years at Ohio State, he transferred to the University of Michigan, where he graduated with a degree in business administration in 1970.

Sexton began his poker career in 1972, when he moved to Las Vegas and joined the now-defunct Dunes poker room. He quickly became one of the best players in the city, and in 1974 he won his first World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet in the $5,000 Deuce-to-Seven Draw event. He went on to win two more WSOP bracelets in 1977 and 1981.

In 1989, Sexton co-founded the World Poker Tour (WPT) with television producer Steve Lipscomb. The WPT is credited with helping to popularize poker around the world, and Sexton has served as the tour’s commentator since its inception.

Sexton has also made numerous appearances on television shows and movies about poker, including the 1998 film Rounders and the 2004 television series Tilt. He has written two books about poker: Life’s a Gamble (2002) and Deal Me In (2007).

Sexton has been married twice. His first marriage, to Sharon Sexton, ended in divorce. He has two children from that marriage: daughter Jamie and son Ty. His second marriage is to Karen Lee Edwards. The couple has one daughter, Madison.

Sexton’s net worth is estimated to be $16 million. He has earned more than $4 million in tournament winnings during his career.
