White Rock poker pro Greg Mueller will be seen on NBC’s Poker After Dark next week, taking on some of the world’s top players in a winner-take-all one-table cash game.
Mueller is set to make his debut on the popular show Feb. 7.
It will air on NBC in the States and Sportsnet in Canada.
“It really happened so fast. One minute I get the call to see if I’d be interested to play, and then the next thing I know I’m on a plane to Las Vegas to shoot the show,” said Mueller, who has two World Series of Poker bracelets on his resume.
In the Feb. 7 showdown, in which players will be vying for $150,000, Mueller – a former professional hockey player before turning his attention to cards – will face off against such recognizable names as Howard Lederer, Phil “The Unabomber” Laak and Eli Elezra.
The show was taped back in November.
