Jacobsen’s renaissance has been frozen – temporarily at least.
First off Alessandro Siena made a big call to a river bet from Jacobsen with bottom pair, catching Jacobsen out bluffing with ace-high.
Then he continued to whittle the Dane down in a number of other pots to the point where Siena was back with an 8 million to just over 1.2 million chip lead.

The board of Ad Jd 6c 5d 2c favoured the younger and shorter-stacked player however and the heads-up battle was extended once more.
