Greg Mueller has won the 2019 WSOP event $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship, defeating a field of 172 players to secure his third gold bracelet and the $425,347 for the first place. This win came 10 years after this Canadian poker pro secured his first two WSOP titles back at the 2009 series.
When there were 3 players left in the game, Greg Mueller had a stack of less than 4BB, but his non-standard game with 53 offsuit changed his fate in this tournament. On the flop 103J, Mueller check-raised a flop with bottom pair. Then he faced a bet from Dario Sammartino on the turn with the board featuring straight and flush possibilities. Mueller check-shoved without the smallest chance to make Sammartino fold. He trusted his instincts, and it paid off.

After his winning Mueller said: “I just thought, ‘Do I still have it? Has that game passed me by?’ and I told myself that I will play a little bit and that I’ll be focused.”
