"Ooooh Baby Dog!"


Greg Mueller took a sick beat last night to have his chip stack crushed, leaving him forced to play a short stack here on Day 4.

From middle position, Brian Powell raised to 21,000. Daniel Steinberg was in the cutoff seat and reraised to 52,000. Action folded over to Mueller in the big blind and he moved all in for 166,000. Powell got out of the way and then Steinberg made the call after verifying the count on Mueller's stack.

Mueller was behind this time, unlike last night where he held the bigger pair. His {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} was one-upped by the {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} for Steinberg.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{6-Spades}{6-Hearts} and Mueller was still looking for that suckout. The turn brought the {A-Clubs} and now Mueller could hit another six to force a chopped pot and stay alive. The river brought the {6-Diamonds} and that was good enough to keep Mueller in the tournament.

"Ooooh baby dog!" Mueller exclaimed, happy to still be sticking around. He also made a small profit on the hand.
