The first part of the poker documentary 10 for 10 was released on youtube a week ago. 10 for 10 is about Martin Jacobson's historic run in the 2014 Main Event - when he bested a field of 6,683 entrants to lay hands on the world champion title and $10 million first-place prize. Enjoy!
Reigning champion Martin Jacobson kicked off the third and final starting day by calling out "Shuffle up and deal". In total, 3963 players bought in for $10,000 each to create the largest single flight in Main Event history!
On Sunday, a trailer for an upcoming poker documentary called 10 for 10 was uploaded to youtube. 10 for 10 is about Martin Jacobson's historic run at the 2014 Main Event (he bested a field of 6,683 entrants to win the title and $10 million). The team behind the documentary, Natural Stacks, describes their creation in the following way...
A massive field of 629 runners entered Day 1B of the EPT Malta Main Event, which brings the total to 899 entries - with registration open until tomorrow at noon. This means that the tournament is already the second-largest debut for a new destination on the European Poker Tour.
41 players (+ 10 re-entries) entered the 2014 EPT Prague Super High Roller for €50,000 a piece. 2014 WSOP Main Event winner Martin Jacobson were among the 35 players (32 from Day 1 + 3 new entries) who returned for Day 2, however, he ended up being eliminated on the final table bubble. Happies "bubble boy" in history?
He had never won a major live tournament before and was second last in chips when the final table kicked off on Monday. Although many considered him to be one of the best players of this year's November 9, the odds were definitely against him.
The 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event has been narrowed down from nine to three players after the first day of the November Nine final table (the first day lasted for 244 hands). Dutchman Jorryt Van Hoof has the chip lead with 89.625 million in chips, Martin Jacobson of Sweden sits in second with 64.75 million, and Felix Stephensen from Norway is the shortest stack with 46.1 million.
57 players registered for the first day of the European Poker Tour Barcelona Super High Roller (€50,000 buy-in) and 14 re-entries were made throughout the day. In total, 49 players made it through the day and the chip leader is Ryan Fee. Here are some of the poker stars who will join Fee at the poker tables today:
The 45th annual World Series of Poker Main Event is set after 7 intensive days of play! Nine players is all that remains of a massive field of 6,883 players from 87 different nations. The final nine players come from six nations (Brazil, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United States.), including the first player ever (Bruno Politano ) from Brazil to reach a final table in a Main Event.
Day 6 of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event began with 79 players, but after 11 hours of play only 27 remained. Swedish poker pro Martin Jacobson (perhaps best known for winning the 2014 EPT Vienna Main Event) will lead the remaining players into Day 7 with a stack of 22,335,000 - about 5.7 million more than Luis Velador (USA) in second place. According to WSOP's website, Jacobson got most of his chips in Level 27 when he won a big pot off Jason Johnson after he flopped a set with pocket 6's and got paid off by Johnson's pocket kings.
The remaining players are now guaranteed a minimum payday of $286,900 with the chance of going all the way to the top prize of $10,000,000! We will be back with another brief report tomorrow afternoon. Stay tuned!
The survivors from Day 1 A & B continued their play in this year's main event on Tuesday. The two fields were seated in different rooms in the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino; survivors from Day 1a played in the Amazon Room while the B's were playing in the Brasilia and Pavilion rooms. Once Day 2 was concluded, approximately 700 players survived from both fields out of the +1,900 players that came through from Day 1.
The chip leaders from Day 1, Martin Jacobson and Trey Luxemburger, could not hold on to the top through Day 2 although Jocobson played very well most of the day and finished 9th on 342,700 chips. Luxemburger finished the day on 64th with a stack worth 186,800. The man that bagged the most after Day 2 is a relatively unknown player called Tim Stansifer who took over the lead with a chip count of 481,500.
Day 2 of the One Drop High Roller saw 108 players returning to the tables with Brandon Steven and Tobias Reinkemeier being the only players with over 1 million chips. Steven played did well during Day 2 and will bring 3.1 million chips to Day 3. Reinkemeier, on the other hand, was eliminated in the final stages of the day after losing a massive pot against William Perking (AA vs a set of queens).
Martin Jacobson from Sweden will bring the largest stack (3.2 million) to Day 3 of the tournament. Jacobson will be joined by poker stars such as Antonio Esfandiari (winner of the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop last year), Oliver Busquet, Mike Sexton and Phil Laak. Only two of the remaining 26 players need to be eliminated before everyone's guaranteed a minimum payday of $173,723 - with the chance of winning millions of dollars on the final table!
Yesterday EPT Berlin began. 315 players, all full of hope to survive the day with a large stack, signed up for the first starting day of the Main Event. Martin Jacobson, Jeff Sarwer, Antonio Buonanno and Mathias Kuerschner were 4 of the players whose chip stacks took the center stage during the day. All of them had over 150,000 chips at different times of the day.
When Day 1a almost had come to an end it seemed like Martin Jacobson, from Sweden, would be the chip leader with a 177k stack. But 4 players passed Jacobson and instead it was Romanian Christian Dragomir (picture) who finished the day with the largest stack. Dragomir sent Benny Spindler to the rail in the last five hands and finished the day with 205,500 chips.
We are only a few moments away from Day 4 of the EPT Vilamoura Main Event. Martin Jacobson from Sweden has taken a massive lead (1,362,000 chips) and he will for sure be one of the players who sits at the final table tomorrow and battle for the first prize of almost 470,00 Euro. Most known of the 24 remaining players are Rob Hollink from Holland (5th place) and football profile Teddy Sheringham from UK (15th place).
