Poker is a game of people played with cards, PartyPoker supplies the cards and action, and today's PartyPoker-information-station brings you five tips from Mike Sexton on how to play those cards and a lot more. Grab a 'cup of joe' and let’s get started.

Mike Sexton has been around the world on the poker road that he helped build. He has locked up more than $5,000,000 in poker tournament wins — and a World Series of Poker bracelet — and is a great spokesperson for poker and the professionalism of the game.

Sexton is always ready to help set the stage for new and seasoned players to take their poker game to a new level and he has set out five tips that will keep your A-game in line with what you want to accomplish in poker. His tips are geared to playing a solid, tight game instead of trying to be creative like the televised poker shows portray poker. Visit the PartyPoker blog and pay attention; it could be the best move you make in improving your game.
