Felix Stephensen

Hand #328:

Felix Stephensen opened his button to 3.5 million and Martin Jacobson moved all in for over 170 million with Stephensen making the call for his final 28.3 million.

Jacobson: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Stephensen: {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

With Stephensen at the disadvantage, each player's rail took to their feet and began chanting excessively.

"Ten for ten! Ten for ten!" shouted Jacobson's rail.

"Ace! Ace! Ace!"responded Stephensen's rail.

The dealer was given the go ahead to spread the flop, and on command she flipped over the {3-Spades}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs} flop to give Jacobson the overwhelming stranglehold on the hand.

Pausing for a few moments to let the anticipation build, the dealer would burn and turn the {K-Diamonds} on the turn to render Stephensen drawing dead as the {4-Clubs} completed the board on the river.

As soon as that final card was dropped, Jacobson's rail - that included family, friends and poker players Jason Koon, Mark Radoja, JC Alvarado, Connor Drinan, Marc-Andre Ladouceur and Mohsin Charania (to name a few) - rushed the stage to congratulate the Swede as they cheered, hugged and messed up that near-perfect hair as he was now the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion!

For Stephensen, his rail didn't disappoint at any stage of the tournament and continued to chant "Felix! Felix! Felix!" as a dejected Stephensen shook Jacobson's hand and headed to the rail to be consoled by his rail. That consoling will have a $5,145,968 payday to go along with it to make him feel a little happier.
