Sweden’s Martin Jacobson Earns WSOP Main Event Win

wsopThree players arrived at the felt last night in the hopes of earning the first place win at the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event final table but only one would walk away with the coveted gold bracelet and $10 million in cold hard cash. After an impressive showing at the felt, it was Martin Jacobson of Sweden who earned the title, after defeating Felix Stephensen and Jorryt Van Hoof in final table play.

When the final day of play began, Jacobson was in the middle chip wise but would soon gain the lead after taking down Van Hoof. After Van Hoof was eliminated in third place, Jacobson would hold the chip lead going in to heads-up play, with a 2-1 lead. The pro would then grind away at Stephensen to eventually claim the first place win.

When the final hand went down, Stephensen opened at 3.5 million and Jacobson decided to move all-in from the big blind. The call was made by Stephensen, who placed 28.3 million in the pot, the last of his tournament chips. Stephensen held A-9 suited hearts and Jacobson revealed pocket tens.

The flop fell 10-9-3 giving Jacobson trips and Stephensen running nines or aces to keep him afloat. The turn revealed a K and a 4 on the river gave Jacobson the win. Speaking on the win and how it might change his life, Jacobson stated that he has not thought about how things might change. He was focused on becoming the world champion and that he is in shock and it seems surreal that the event is over and he won it all.
