Martin Jacobson Flying Swedish Flag on Way to WSOP November Nine

Published on 14 July 2014 by Pokerlistings 432

Eight of the remaining 13 players are from countries outside of the United States and flying the flag for Sweden as head in to the November Nine is veteran poker pro Martin Jacobson. The only Swede left, Jacobson has been playing professionally for the last six years and in that time has racked up over $4.8 million in live tournament earnings. Jacobson is already guaranteed $441,000 but if he can hold on until the final table, he'll have a shot at $10 million and the title of world champion in November. Jacobson is very well-respected among elite live tournament pros and said in the interview he's doing his best to keep calm and take it one decision at a time. It was obvious this win would mean the world to him but he also said he's not going to get ahead of himself and make plans for money he hasn't yet won. Check out the interview and keep watching for the latest news and video from the 2014 World Series of Poker.
