Swede among top three in world poker series

A 27-year-old Swede Martin Jacobson is among the three remaining players in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, USA. He has therefore reached further in the tournament than any other Swede before him.

Making at least a bronze, Jacobson, is guaranteed at least USD $3.8 million prize money. Should he make it to the top, USD $10 million awaits him, as well as the glory of being a world champion.

The other contestants are Norwegian Felix Stephensen and Dutchman Jorryt van Hoof. They will resume playing on Tuesday, local time.

In all, 6,683 players have participated in the tournament this year, according to news agency TT.
