Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is Martin Jacobson who has racked up over $17 million in poker cashes in his live MTT career.

Some of his career highlights include:

– Winning the 2014 WSOP ME for $10,000,000. Hard to top this one on the highlight reel.

– An $800k score at the 2013 $111,111 buy-in One Drop for $807k.

– And a $762k runner-up finish at the 2011 EPT Deauville Main Event.

If you’ll notice, Martin’s WSOP ME victory came AFTER his other two largest scores which means dude’s been operating on an extremely high level for a very long time and it also begs the question…

– What the future holds for the Great Martin Jacobson.

– And much, MUCH more!
