Jacobson Wins $10m WSOP Main Event Title
Swedish poker pro Martin Jacobson is the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event champion!
Jacobson survived one of the longest November Nine final tables in history to become the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event champion on Tuesday.
He walked away with the championship bracelet (worth $500,000) and $10 million in prize money.
The final table was played down to three players on Monday. Mark Newhouse was at his second straight November Nine final table but incredibly busted out in 9th place - again - despite starting third in chips.
Jorryt Van Hoof of the Netherlands came into the final table as the chip leader and retained that lead heading into the final three on Tuesday. Norway's Martin Jacobson came into Tuesday's action second in chips and Felix Stephensen started as the short stack.
Van Hoof was unable to sustain the run that got him to the final table and was the first player eliminated on Tuesday. Upon his elimination, Jacobson had a 2.5 to 1 chip lead, one that he would never relinquish.
The final hand of the night saw Stephensen shove with Ah-9h and Jacobson call with pocket tens. A ten on the flop gave Jacobson a set and a king on the turn left Stephensen drawing dead.
Martin Jacobson is the 2014 WSOP Main Event Champion. In addition to $10 million in prize money, he received a bracelet from Jason's of Beverly Hills worth over $500,000.
