Martin Jacobson crowned The World Champion of Poker - WSOP 2014
Martin Jacobson is the new World Champion of Poker. The super talented Swedish poker player has just won the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event that kicked off on Monday. After two days of poker tournament, Martin Jacobson set the 2014 November Nine event alight by topping the 9 finalists. While William Tonking, Billy Pappas, Andoni Larrabe, Dan Sindelar, Bruno Politano and Mark Newhouse were eliminated from the first day flight, Norways Felix Stephensen, Swedens Martin Jacobson and the Netherlands Van Hoof Jorryt returned to Pen & Teller Theater at Rio-Las Vegas on Tuesday afternoon to run for the ultimate 2014 World Series of Poker title race. Of the final table of three, Van Hoof Jorryt was the first player to head for the door.
Dutchman Van Hoof entered the second and ultimate flight of the November Nine battle as a chip leader. However, his stack quickly melted down, kicking him to third place after 293rd hands played all along the final table, the 49th hand of the day. By securing the last step of the podium, he left the poker room of Pen & Teller Theater with $ 3,806,402 of prize. His elimination somewhat allowed Martin Jacobson to find himself teed off against Felix Stephensen in the heads-up. With an impressive chip advantage over his opponent, Jacobson (142 million chips) collected the entire stack of Stephensen (58, 5 million chips) after five hours of play. For his first-place finish, Jacobson adds $ 10 million to his career earnings along with his first WSOP bracelet while Felix Stephensen was awarded $ 5,145,968 as a consolation.
