Martin Jacobson

The partypoker MILLIONS North America $1,100 Open has 68 players left going into the final day of play and is set to begin at 12:00 PM EST. Martin Jacobson (36,475,000) has accumulated one of the top stacks going into Day 3 after starting Day 2 with a stack well below average.

Jacobson is the 2014 WSOP Main Event champion with over $16.5 million in career earnings and will be looking to add a partypoker MILLIONS North America title to his tournament history. The Swede is going into Day 3 fifth in chips and will surely be someone to watch for as the field shrinks down to the final table.

Some notable players that Jacobson will have to go through to capture a title include chip leader Anthony Ruberto (40,175,000), Steven Tripp (38,900,000), and Jean-Francois M (37,425,000) who all sit in the top three positions of the leaderboard. Some other notable runners still chasing the title include bracelet winners Chris Moorman (36,300,000) and Mohsin Charania (26,400,000).

When the action resumes the blinds will continue on level 25 at 300,000/600,000 with a 600,000 button ante. Players are all guaranteed $4,000 and the money gets a serious pay increase as the runners hit the final table. A top nine finish will pocket a respectable $12,000 with the winner of the tournament taking home a payday of $210,000.
