  • Martin Jacobson wins the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic in 1.75 hours, netting $46,220.50.

The 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event champion, Martin Jacobson, added yet another online poker tournament title to his name this weekend when he emerged victorious in the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic.

Playing as "M.nosbocaJ," Jacobson navigated his way through a field of 1,308 opponents in the hyper-turbo six-max tournament. After 1.75 hours, Jacobson was the last player standing and collected $46,220.40 for an hourly rate of approximately $26,410.

Although impressive, Jacobson's victory was not the largest at PokerStars on Sunday, that honor went to Ireland’s “stardust167” who triumphed in the Sunday Million. There does not appear to be much information about the mysterious Irish player, but we discovered that he won a $215 ticket via a $7.10 sit-n-go satellite and looks to have used that to enter the Sunday Million. It turned out to be a fantastic decision, as "stardust167" topped a field of 5,778 players to scoop a massive first-place prize of $179,120.79.
