Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Jacobson Loses His First Hand

Martin Jacobson started the day with 180,600 and a player of his quality can do a lot with a stack like that. Unfortunately, he has gotten off to a bad start, by losing his first hand, but there is a long way to go.

Jacobson raised to 5,100 in mid-position and Ricardo Tavares three-bet to 17,000 on the button. Jacobson decided to call and they shared a flop of {Q-Hearts} {J-Hearts} {3-Clubs}. Jacobson check-called a 22,000 flop c-bet but then both players shut down and checked both the turn {6-Hearts} and the river {8-Diamonds}. Tavares was first to turn over, as the first aggressor, and his {A-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} prompted Jacobson to muck his hand.
