Martin Jacobson is no longer the silent Swedish crusher of poker tournaments, and that's because he ignited himself into poker stardom and became a household name after winning the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event for $10 million.
During the recent European Poker Tour event in Prague, Jacobson sat down with PokerNews for an in-depth interview to talk about his poker story. In the first part of the two-part series, Jacobson discusses discovering poker, learning the game, and his first big results before emerging onto the scene with multiple EPT final tables. In the second part, Jacobson talks about his mindset going into playing the biggest final table of his life, his tough opponents, and the road to victory.
