Vancouver’s Greg “FBT” (Full Blown Tilt) Mueller was really a perfect choice for the 2011 Team Canada Captain, for the World Team Poker Championship considering that one of the 3 games played is Limit Hold’em. Greg has already scored not one, but two bracelets, both over the 2009 World Series of Poker in Fixed Limit Hold’em and Mixed Hold’em Events. The first golden crown jewel came for winning the $10,000 World Championship of Limit Poker, while number two circled the other wrist after taking down the $1500 Limit Shootout event. Combined, the two titles earned $650,000. The former 9 year professional German hockey player learned to play poker on the road and while he prefers the traditional limit games, FBT doesn’t mind the big money attached to No Limit Hold’em games either.
Mueller’s ability to mix his game selection up has got him very close to his first bracelet several times prior to his “oh so close” WSOP player of the year run in 2009. Only a few weeks before prior, “FBT” final tabled the 10k World Championship of Seven Card Stud and in previous years, Mueller had come even closer. 2008 seen Mueller bag a second place finish in the World Series of Pokers five thousand dollar NLH Shootout and he had another heads up finish in the 2007 $5000 World Championship of Mixed Hold’em.
Greg currently claims the 20th spot of the all time Canadian Money List with over $1.8 million in career tournament earnings. His Top 100 WSOP performance record includes more than 20 WSOP cashes and 7 final tables.
Widely known for his support of charity poker here in Canada, Canada Poker.com was happy to have caught up with Greg at the 6th Annual Full Tilt Miriam Foundation “Montreal Open”, where Mueller outlasted all the other Red Pros, finishing an impressive 37th of a starting field of more than 1500 entries. Prior to hooking up with Greg in Montreal, we last saw Greg on his home turf, while he played hard and worked the microphone in between, during the 2010 British Columbia Poker Championships.
