PokerStars NJ has finally released the full schedule of the upcoming New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOOP). The festival takes place from October 10 to 26 and has a whopping $1 million in combined guaranteed prize money. It follows right on the heels of PACCOP, Pennsylvania’s own version of the tournament, which concludes this week.
The NJCOOP line-up also includes a number of exciting formats for those on the lookout for variety. Some of these events include the $100 H.O.R.S.E., $100 5-Card PLO, $100 Pot-Limit Badugi, $500 PLO 6-Max High Roller, and several other PLO events on the schedule.
Overall, there are a total of 54 events to choose from, with buy-ins ranging from $20, all the way up to $1,000.
NJCOOP will culminate in the $300 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Main Event which is set to give away $125,000 in guaranteed prize money. The event will play out on October 25. The schedule also features a Mini Main Event which comes with a buy-in of only $50, and offers $25,000 in guarantees.
PokerStars NJ is making it easy for players to enter the tournament by running Second Chance Freerolls. These freerolls are exclusive for players who bust in any NJCOOP event without reaching the money. Freeroll tournaments take place daily from October 11 till October 25. A total of $1,250 worth of satellite tickets and NJCOOP entries await the lucky winners.
Another option to participate in the Main Event for a lower buy-in is via the Main Event Depositor Freeroll. To be eligible, players need to deposit at least $30 using the code “NJCOOP” until October 25. There will be a total of 25 Main Event tickets up for grabs, so make sure you don’t miss out on this special promo.
Demand For Online Action Remains Strong
So far this year, PokerStars NJ has played host to multiple major tournament series. Back in April, the NJ Spring Championship of Online Poker (NJSCOOP) Main Event attracted 620 entries. Three months later, the Bounty Builders Series took place, which ended up awarding more than $700,000 in total prize money.
The early success of the ongoing PACOOP suggests that the demand for online festivals continues to be strong in the US Northeast area, even as the live poker scene is slowly getting back to business. Majority of the events on the PACOOP schedule were able to smash and exceed their guarantees. NJCOOP is hoping to achieve a similar performance.
