Greg Mueller was the chip leader following Day 1b play at the Epic Poker League Pro/Am and he also became a target of an attempted robbery. 

The Epic Poker League site relayed what transpired on Saturday

Greg Mueller ended Day 1b of the Epic Poker League Pro/Am Saturday night as the overall chip leader. Shooting craps with friends at Aria, someone swiped a $5,000-chip from his stack at the rail. A friend didn’t see the theft but “saw my flags vibrate.” Another friend thought the character looked suspicious and, when the person walked away and began sprinting from the craps pit, Greg and his buddy gave chase.

Greg describes, in the first part of this video, his satellite tournament strategy with the chip lead. In the second part of the video, he explains his strategy for dealing with thieves. Greg and his buddy Kyle gave chase, tore his shirt off, tackled him: “Ship the flag!”

Mueller, a Vancouver pro and former professional hockey player, has $1,750,000 in total live winnings with $1,516,206 (19 cashes)  occurring at World Series of Poker events.
