The opening days of the third annual PokerStars New Jersey Championship of Online Poker had one of the regions top-ranked players walking away with a $30,000 trip to the Bahamas.

Anthony ‘FlawlessBINK’ Maio beat out 408 other players to win Event #6 ($86 Moneymaker Tour No Limit Hold’em) to win a $30,000 Platinum Pass which includes the $25,000 buy-in to the PokerStars Players Championship this January in the Bahamas. The runner-up in that event, ‘LuieAnderson‘, had to settle for a $5,800.49 score while third-place finisher ‘CrazyIKilla‘ earned $4,263.27.

The first non-Hold’em event on the schedule, Event #7 ($100 Pot Limit Omaha Eight Max) drew 146 players with ‘solidluck‘ earning $2,915.24 for the win.

Michael Gagliano picked up $3,622.71 and his first NJCOOP title of the year in Event #8 ($150 Hyper Turbo No Limit Hold’em Sunday SuperSonic Special Edition) by beating ‘You Are Tim‘ heads up.
