"I love the WSOP and its history but I do feel they need to be careful in not diluting the brand (& the value of the bracelet) by continuing to increase the number of events each year.  And since players can qualify for WSOPE and WSOPC events on partypoker, I love 'em!"  

Sexton also laughed off Doyle Brunson's announcement he will be retiring from the game of poker.

"There's a chance he might not play any more tournaments, but he will never quit playing poker unless he's physically unable to get to the Bellagio. "

Sexton also chimed in regarding the recent controversies over verbal abuse at the poker tables, noting he would ban such behavior.
