Martin Jacobson Wins World Series of Poker

Swedish poker pro Martin Jacobson has won the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event, besting Norwegian player Felix Stephensen and will take home $10 million as a result.

The tournament ended when Jacobson played a pair of 10s against Stephensen's Ace, 9. Stephensen was all-iin with the lower chip count, and he lost out when the dealer drew an extra 10 followed by a King, ending the tournament.

The night began with Dutch player Jorryt van Hoof in the lead, but eventually lost that, finishing the tournament in third place and took home $3.8 million in winnings. For his second place finish Stephensen will walk away with $5.1 million in prize money.

Commenting on his tournament experience Jacobson said, "There's no such thing as a 'perfect tournament,' but this was close to perfect, maybe."
