Yesterday, the Swedish Martin Jacobson won the Main Event of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2014. Although Jacobson had already nearly 5 M$ in scholarships to this day, he had never won big tournament. Today it is done!
With his victory, Jacobson gets paid, either one of the larger purse attributed to this tournament (with Jamie Gold who had pocketed 12 M$ in 2006).
On the final hand, Jacobson is in all (170 M) with a pair of 10s. Felix Stephensen, shortstack (28M) calls with A95. The 3-9-T flop removed pretty much all hope Felix out. The turn and river fell brick-brick and Jacobson became the new champion of the world 2014.
