Event #19: $2,500 Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Full Blown Champion

[user101598] • Level 5: 250-500, 0 ante

Greg "FBT" Mueller (FBT = Full Blown Tilt) is arguably one of best limit hold'em players in the world. In 2009 WSOP he shipped the $10,000 Limit World Championship Event for $460,841, the $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout Event for $194,909, and later that year he shipped his own limit hold'em FTOPS event for $36,081.

When we reached his table moments ago, the dealer was just about to fan the flop when he told his opponent, "I'm probably checking."

The flop came down {3-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, and Mueller indeed checked. His opponent bet, and Mueller raised.

"Nice hand," his opponent said...and then raised.

"The 'nice hand then raise' eh?" Mueller chuckled. "I call."

The turn was the {2-Spades}, and Mueller checked. His opponent checked behind.

"Oh no," Mueller blurted. "I let you get a freebie."

The river was the {6-Clubs}, and Mueller led out. His opponent called.

"And you still paid me off," he said while tabling {q-Hearts}{j-Spades} for a pair of jacks. His opponent mucked, and Mueller raked the pot to put him back above starting stack.
