It is one of the most exciting days of the year.
It’s the last day of the World Series of Poker Main Event until the final table resumes in early November and there are 27 hopefuls battling for only 9 seats in the spotlight.
Day 6 ended with a familiar name atop the chip count leaderboard: Martin Jacobson. Jacobson, who led the way on Day 1A, finds himself an overwhelming chipleader headed into Day 7. Jacobson is no stranger to high-pressure tournament poker having amassed over $4.8M in previous tournament earnings but sitting with 22.3M in chips, Martin already has what will be slightly above average chips for the final table (22.276M).
Above Martin talks with PokerNews about how the table dynamics are always shifting as play gets down to the end. Below, Jacobson chats briefly with Bluff Magazine about how playing at the feature table can be less of a thrill and actually a little annoying.
