Greg Mueller Wins $10,000 Limit Hold’em World Championship
The 6th $10,000 World Championship event finished in Vegas late last night at the WSOP, and Greg ‘FBT’ Mueller walked away the winner, taking down his 1st ever WSOP bracelet plus $460,836 in cash.
Canadian Mueller has come close in the past couple of years, with a raft of WSOP cashes, but this Championship victory will have been mighty sweet after he beat a final table that included Chad Brown, Daniel Alaei, and Soheil Shamseddin.
The final table lasted 12 hours, with virtually everyone at the table swapping the chip lead, but in the end, after Pat Pezzin had doubled his chips in a lucky outdraw, Mueller’s pocket fives were goof enough to survive the threat of Pezzin’s two overcards and Mueller, finally was champion.
At time of writing, British eyes will be on the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha, where Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott is going strong, and Roland de Wolfe, currently riding high in the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event, where he’s chasing his 2nd gold bracelet of the Series.
