Jacobson, a 27-year-old who eschewed sunglasses in favor of a normal pair of eyeglasses, outlasted Felix Stephensen of Norway to win the World Series of Poker’s main event on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, taking home the $10 million prize. On the final hand, his trip-10s beat Stephensen’s pair of nines.
He’s never won a major live poker tournament. He’s second to last in chips to start the final table. He’s too quiet to become the leading poker ambassador. No player from Sweden has ever won this tournament.

Stephensen—who had been severely short-stacked from the moment the final table went head’s-up— raised to $3.5 million after being dealt suited A-9, only to be put all in by Jacobson’s pocket 10s. The flop showed Stephensen a 9—but it also gave Jacobson a set, virtually locking up the championship for the Stockholm native.
Those were all rumblings heard throughout the poker world about Martin Jacobson in the months leading up to the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event final table. When it was all said and done, though, the man from Sweden proved to be the last player standing, topping poker’s greatest event to win his first WSOP gold bracelet and the massive $10 million first-place prize.
