    Default Sexton inducted into Poker Hall of Fame

    Mike Sexton was the only member of the nine-person ballot to receive enough votes from the 15 living members of the Poker Hall of Fame and a 15-person media panel.

    The ballot was stacked, with poker superstars Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Scotty Nguyen, Erik Seidel, Barry Greenstein and Dan Harrington amongst those nominated.

    Casino City has the press release making the announcement here. If you want to see how our very own Gary Trask voted, click here. He was one of the 15 media members on the voting panel.

    A well deserved entry! Can't believe he was the only one that made it in.

    I had a chance to speak with Mike Sexton about making it into the Hall of Fame. He told me a very funny story about how Scotty Nguyen played a big part in helping him break through as a TV announcer for the WPT.

    Here's the link to the article:
