2014 WSOP Champ Martin Jacobson Played Near Flawless Poker

WSOP 2014 Champ Martin Jacobson Played Near Flawless PokerSweden’s Martin Jacobson claimed poker tournament’s most prestigious title last night, after besting his fellow November Niners to capture the 2014 WSOP Main Event, and walk away richer to the tune of $10 million. On the way to victory, the 27 year-old pro had to first manoeuvre his way past a huge field of 6,683 players, before then overcoming a final table of nine, in which he was the second shortest stack.
At the $10k WSOP Main Event final table, Martin Jacobson would eventually eliminate three of his fellow competitors, including Norway’s Felix Stephensen heads-up, to become just the sixth European player to capture a WSOP Main Event title. That figure does not include the WSOP Europe Main Event which has had 4 European champions between 2007 and 2013).
Even before this year’s WSOP, Martin Jacobson had already proved himself a formidable tournament poker pro, having amassed $4,807,316 since his first live cash in 2008. The 27 year-old Swede entered his first WSOP Main Event a few days after he just turned 21, and although he busted out early that time, going into this year’s final table Jacobson was the only November Niner to have earned more than $1 million from World Series of Poker events.
Over the next 16 hours of poker at Monday and Tuesday night’s final table, professionals around the globe seem to be in almost unanimous agreement Martin Jacobson played near flawless poker in order to claim the gold WSOP bracelet, with Erik Seidel describing his performance as a “master class” and “one for the ages.” The eight time bracelet winner’s comments were also echoed in a tweet by 4-times WSOP bracelet winner Michael Matusow, who  had these words to say about Jacobson:
“Martin Jacobsons performance will go down as one of the greatest final table accomplishments ever he has been stone cold awesome!.. Martin Jacobson has played mistake free poker for 2 days truly awesome to watch as a professional poker player.. Absolutely amazing poker Martin Jacobson most deserving performance I have ever seen. Awsome!”
Following his historic win in Las Vegas, Martin Jacobson now has $14,833,732 in live tournament winnings to his name, and commenting on his latest performance, the modest Swede said:
“Close to perfect, maybe. I don’t think there is such a thing as a perfect tournament because it’s impossible to not make some errors here and there but I definitely feel like I limited my mistakes and played pretty well overall. It means everything to me. It’s probably hard to tell but I’m just in shock. There was so much pressure leading up to this moment.”
