Mueller makes it two at 2009 WSOP

Greg Mueller

Greg Mueller had made six WSOP final tables before he finally won the $10k Limit Hold'em World Championship eleven days ago.

But Sunday night, in his first final table appearance since, the hockey-pro-turned-poker-pro from British Columbia, Canada managed to win his second piece of World Series gold.

"It feels unbelievable," he told PokerListings moments after the win.

"The first one was extremely special, but winning two bracelets in one year puts me in a pretty elite category. It feels great."

Once again the game was Limit Hold'em, but this time it was the $1,500 Shootout and Mueller had to beat fellow 2009 WSOP bracelet holder Marc Naalden heads-up to book the win.

"What made it really tough was I had to beat the one player I was most concerned about heads-up to win it," he said. "Even coming into the final table I felt Marc Naalden would be my toughest competition."

Mueller said the experience of seven final tables and the bracelet win a week and a half ago certainly helped.

"I don't panic when I lose a hand early on in the final table and I don't try to win the whole tournament in the first 20 hands," he said. "Experience really helps."

With two Limit Hold'em bracelets on his wrist now, Mueller has to be considered one of the strongest Limit players in the game today.

"It definitely says a lot about my Limit Hold'em game right now," he said. "They say good things come in threes and there's still a couple more events to go here."
