$10k Limit World Championship - Ship It To Mueller!
After a devastating reversal of fortune, Chad Brown, who was in the lead for much of the last few hours, ended up a disappointing third place.
No matter what Brown did, it seemed to be the wrong thing. After losing to Mueller's straight flush it appeared that the wind had been taken out of his sails and headed Mueller's way.
The heads up match between Greg Mueller and Pat Pezzin started out with 3.8 million chips for Mueller to Pezzin's 1.7 million. Greg wasted no time in getting to work and immediately started hacking away at Pezzin's stack.
First Mueller made aces and eights and got paid off all the way and then moments later he snapped off a Pezzin bluff.
Things were definitely going Mueller's way as just a few minutes he rivered trips and, judging by the action, it was a key suckout that put Greg on the home stretch.
Pezzin was down to a pittance when he got all in with J♦ 8♥ against Mueller's A♣ K♠. Daniel Negreanu stood by and willed an eight out of the deck. Pezzin's pair of eights held up and Pezzin was back up to 340,000.
It was just momentary stay of execution for Pezzin. Another few minutes went by when Mueller picked up pocket fives and got Pezzin all in with his T♦ 8♠ on a 2♥ K♥ 3♣. Negreanu once again was calling for a ten or an eight but this time there would be no salvation for Pezzin.
It took Greg Mueller an incredible 7 final table attempts before finally sealing the deal. Tonight Greg Mueller became the 2009 World Series of Poker $10,000 buyin Championship of Limit Hold'em winner.
He will take home $460,836 for the win but if you asked him, he surely would say that the bracelet means so much more to him than just a few bucks.
