2017 NJSCOOP to feature $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money

13 Views

New Jersey is one of only three states in the US that currently offers online poker gaming. The state has quickly risen above Delaware and Nevada as the top provider of cash gaming, tournaments and more, with such brands as WSOP and PokerStars in the mix. The PokerStars brand actually first arrived in New Jersey just over a year ago and quickly got to work offering quality events and promotions. In line with the brands Spring Championship of Online Poker, PokerStars launched the first ever New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker last year and are now gearing up for this year’s event.

The NJSCOOP details have been revealed by PokerStars and show a full schedule of 35 events with over $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money. The tournaments will run from May 6th until the 22nd, giving the locals as well as travelers to New Jersey plenty of time to compete.

With the NJSCOOP, players have access to two tier buy-ins for each event. Choose the High or Low option based on the prizes awarded or the buy-in amount. Several variants of poker will be on offer during the series including the traditional No Limit Hold’em and Omaha, HORSE, Stud Hi/Lo, Five Card PLO and more.

Perhaps the most anticipated event on the schedule will be the NJSCOOP Main Event. This two day tournament will offer a High buy-in of $500 and a Low buy-in of $50. With the High Main Event, players will be competing for $200,000 in guaranteed prize money. The Low version will offer $30,000 guaranteed. Each Main Event will start on the 21st of May and finish up the following day.

Players who want to try and win a seat to the Main Event via the affordable route, can compete in satellites that are already running at PokerStarsNJ.  Spin & Gos are currently running starting at just $4, with seats provided to the Main Event.

Highlights of the schedule include the NLHE Heads Up event offering $20,000 guaranteed and the NLHE Four Max $40,000 guaranteed event. PokerStars will also be offering two Sunday Specials during the NJSCOOP which will include a $300 buy-in tournament with $85,000 in total prize money and a $350 buy-in event with $65,000 up for grabs.
