Seat 8: Martin Jacobson

NN Jacobson

Age: 27
From: Sweden
Pre 2014 Main-Event Career Earnings: $4,807,316
Chips: 14,900,000 (8/9)

Jacobson is by far the most successful player in terms of career earnings out of the nine. He is a big face on the European circuit, having had more EPT cashes than we've had hot dinners, including a runner up finish in EPT Deauville 2011 for €560,000. He also final tabled last year's One Drop High Roller event, netting him $807,427. Although he has the second shortest stack on the table, if there's anyone who can turn it round, it's Jacobson – he is the pro's favourite, and almost certainly the best all-round player left. He also has plenty of experience in playing final tables for big money, meaning he's likely to be cool and collected playing under the spotlight.
