The 2014 World Series of Poker started on May 27 with the $500 Casino Employees Event. The Main Event was scheduled to run for nine days starting on July 5 (with a break for the November Nine), the 65th event of the festival, an increase of three from 2013.

The second World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific was held in October with ten events: six in No-Limit Hold 'Em, two in Pot-Limit Omaha, and two 8-game mixes. The WSOP intended to run the WSOP Asia-Pacific in every even year alternating with the WSOP Europe in every odd year.

Main Event Final Table
[Hide Final Table]

Once the last American, William Tonking, was knocked out of the 2014 WSOP Main Event in fourth place,1 either Sweden or Norway or the Netherlands was going to have its first champ. Surprisingly, all three of the players were current residents of London, England!

Dutchman Jorryt van Hoof started the final table with the chip lead, and he still had it when they got down to three. But Swede Martin Jacobson was looking sharp, having moved all the way up from second-to-last to second in chips.

At the final table, Jacobson won ten showdowns and lost ten. Appropriately, he held Ace-Ten to eliminate van Hoof in third place and then sealed the victory over Norwegian Felix Stephensen by turning pocket Tens into a set of Tens on the final hand. With the WSOP guaranteeing $10,000,000 to the 2014 winner, Jacobson multiplied his $10,000 buyin by a thousand in his tenth tournament cash of the year.

Main Event Final Hand
[Hide Final Hand]

Dutchman Jorryt van Hoof leads the way as three-way action begins but is knocked out in third when his Ace-Five can't catch the Swede Martin Jacobson's Ace-Ten. Jacobson, who entered the November Nine in eighth place, has a 7-to-3 lead over Felix Stephensen, a Norwegian pro who started second, and dominates the heads-up action.

Facing a 7-to-1 chip deficit, Stephensen has a fairly straightforward call when Jacobson three-bets him all in on the final hand. The Swede is already way ahead when the Ten hit on the flop, leaving the Norwegian drawing dead to runner-runner. Jacobson takes down the guaranteed $10,000,000 first prize, while Stephensen earns $5,145,968.
