November Niners Van Hoof and Jacobson Get a Practice Round
Holland's Jorryt van Hoof and Sweden's Martin Jacobson both vaulted into the poker spotlight by reaching the final table of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event. When the two resume play in November on poker's grandest stage, van Hoof will have the chip lead and slight position against Jacobson — van Hoof will be seated in Seat 3 and Jacobson will be seated in Seat 8.
Here in the European Poker Tour Barcelona €50,000 Super High Roller, van Hoof and Jacobson will have a chance to get in some early practice against one another because they are seated at the same starting table. This time, though, Jacobson will have position on van Hoof, so the dynamic could play out a little differently. Even so, it will be iterating to see if and how these two get involved against one another.
