    Mike Sexton Appointed Chairman of partypoker, Tony Dunst to replace him on WPT telecast

    Mike's always been involved with the site since the beginning, mostly in marketing (even calling up a young "DanDruff" to get him to play on the site back in the boom era), but today's announcement confirms his role as the "Lee Jones/Stars" role as the GM of the site's operations.

    Roles include:

    GVC Holdings Plc are delighted to announce that Mike Sexton has been appointed as Chairman of partypoker.


    Mike was one of the founders of partypoker in 2001, although for the last 15 years he has combined his position at World Poker Tour alongside his partypoker ambassador role. Mike was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2009 and is a WSOP bracelet winner and WPT Champion.

    Mikeís role as Chairman will be to represent the global poker community and guide partypoker to:

    Invest in software development to deliver an industry leading player experience
    Improve customer services and strive to resolve player issues in the same day
    Reward the loyalty of players who start games and keep the action going
    Look after smaller bankroll players with value added promotions
    Fight against the use of third party software that gives an unfair advantage
    Invest marketing budgets within the poker community
    Develop partypoker Live to become the largest live poker tour in the world
    Support partners and have their backs
    Only appoint management who get poker, who are trusted, and who actually care
    Hold hands up to the poker community when mistakes are made
    As a result of his new duties, Mike leaves the WPT broadcast and Tony Dunst will be the one to replace him (with Vince VanPatten) starting next season

    Mike Sexton is an American working and promoting an online poker site that is still illegal for Americans to play on for real money.

    Did they also shave 35 years from his life because he couldn't handle nor does he understand half those duties mentioned, all fluff for Mike which is nice but gimme a break. Then again maybe 70 is the new 35 but nah just a nice back slap before the DD.
