The trailer was spellbinding and so is the full documentary of the 2015 World Series of Poker Winner – Martin Jacobson. 10 for 10, a look back at Jacobson’s journey to the WSOP Main Event Victory has been released. The 24-minutes long documentary shows how the Swedish pro prepared himself for the Final Table and how he scaled up to the biggest peak of poker after starting with a short stack initially.
The documentary shows the entire journey of Jacobson in three parts with voiceover and commentary from different individuals. It starts with Jacobson taking Yoga sessions for mental strength and speaking about how the November Nine was formed. It goes on to show his preparatory sessions with the Canadian poker pros Mark Radoja and Sam Chartier where they discuss all possibilities and tactics for the Final Table.
The second part for the documentary features Jacobson’s run to the top 3 on the Final Table. The moment he beats William Tonking in 4th place and joins his mother, sister and girlfriend to celebrate is the highlight of this part. The final part for this documentary depicts his race against Jorryt van Hoof and Felix Stephensen to clinch the glory. Jacobson says, “I don’t think about the money that much. It’s more important to me to win the title.”
As the river card falls and Jacobson wins, the ESPN commentator and poker pro Antonio Esfandiari says, “In the mental game, Jacobson was the best. His overall approach was phenomenal; he didn’t make any mistakes. It was the best performance I’ve seen.” The documentary ends with Martin Jacobson celebrating his momentous victory with the friends and family.
