Checking In with WSOP November Niner Martin Jacobson

donpeters • Level 10: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

On the {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades} flop, both Martin Jacobson and Timothy Adams checked to see the {4-Hearts} land on the turn. Jacobson bet 27,000, and Adams called. After the {6-Spades} fell on the river, Jacobson check-folded to a bet of 50,000 from Adams.

Shortly thereafter, Jacobson was involved in another hand against Adams. This time the action started with a raise to 17,000 from Oleksii Khoroshenin from middle position before Adams reraised to 38,000 from the hijack seat. Jacobson cold four-bet to 64,000 out of the small blind, and play folded back to Adams. He called.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, and Jacobson took some time before betting 40,000. Adams wasted little in folding, and Jacobson won the pot.

While Jacobson has been a notable player for quite some time now, especially on the European circuit, he's gained a new type of fame through reaching the 2014 World Series of Poker November Nine. Yesterday, Remko Rinkema spoke with Jacobson about his preparation for the WSOP Main Event final table to come in a couple months and the media frenzy surrounding him since:
