Martin Jacobson Wins 2014 WSOP Main Event By Flopping A Set

Swede Martin Jacobson took poker's biggest prize with his first World Series of Poker bracelet in this year's Main Event, dispatching Norway's Felix Stephensen on the final table's 328th hand with trips 10s, a fitting hand to match his $10,000,000 prize.


Stephensen—who had been severely short-stacked from the moment the final table went head's-up— raised to $3.5 million after being dealt suited A-9, only to be put all in by Jacobson's pocket 10s. The flop showed Stephensen a 9—but it also gave Jacobson a set, virtually locking up the championship for the Stockholm native.

Stephensen's consolation for missing out on the bracelet? $5,147,911.
