Early in his poker career, Ron Rose was interviewed by fellow poker pro Mike Sexton, spokesperson for the World Poker Tour. In the article that resulted from that interview Sexton stated that “the poker world is a better place with people like Ron Rose a part of it.” Sexton recognized that Ron brought to poker not only a talent for winning, but also a gentlemanly demeanor and a penchant for taking poker’s sometimes unsavory image to new heights in every form of media.
Rose’s background and his congenial but no-nonsense manner were the perfect vehicles to do that. It wasn’t long before Ron had racked up an impressive resume of accomplishments.
