It’s tough to be a short stack

Mueller-Eliminator Viktor Eriksson

The blinds have reached a level where many players are forced to play shove, re-shove or fold.

Felix Mueller from Austria was one of those players. He found himself down to 40k and shoved those chips in the middle after an open-raise from Viktor Eriksson. Eriksson called immediately.


  • Mueller: A-T
  • Eriksson: A-Q

The board didn’t improve Mueller’s dominated hand and it came down J-7-2-K-6.

Thus, Mueller must take his leave. Maybe he will take comfort in the fact that he is among over 100 players that have busted today already. Many more will follow!
