This story was published more than 5 years ago.

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."
