NJCOOP: Edwin ‘GiantGeniu$’ Roman, ‘MartinChatwn’ Win Day 3 Titles

Sunday's PokerStars NJCOOP schedule saw over $160K in total prize pools and 'fireball1998' capturing another title.

The third annual PokerStars New Jersey Championship of Online Poker continued on Monday with another pair of tournaments that surpassed their posted guarantees.

It may have taken two tries, but in the end, ‘MartinChatwn’ outlasted the 175 player field in Event #9 ($100 NLHE Speed Down) to take home the $3,234.58 first place prize. It marks the second final table in the series for ‘MartinChatwn’ having already fourth place in Event #2 for $2,073.19.

Brian ‘Wsopboy1997’ Sherrier finished as the runner-up in Event #9, adding $2,465.15 to his bankroll. It marks the fifth NJCOOP cash for Sherrier, two of which were final table appearances. It has been a great week of results for the grinder from Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. Just one week ago he surpassed $100,000 in total career earnings. In the time since he has accumulated over $25,000 in cashes and made four high-profile final tables.

There was a three-way deal made at the end of Event #10 ($75+R PLO Hi/Lo Eight Max). However, even with a done deal the final participants are required to play it out for the final $300, which went to Edwin ‘GiantGeniu$’ Roman from Bayonne, NJ. Roman took home the top prize of $4,314.11, the largest NJCOOP cash of the day. ‘fkdtshtfkdts’ and ‘R@zzleDazz1e’ both earned $4,014.11 for second and third place respectively.

It was the second final table of the day for both Roman and ‘fkdtshtfkdts’ as they made the final table of both NJCOOP tournaments of the day. In event #9, it was ‘fkdtshtfkdts’ who got the better of Roman, falling in fifth place while Roman settled for sixth.

Another pair of PocketFivers made the final table of Event #10. Daryl ‘jordanofpkr’ Black finished in fifth place for $1,351.35 for his first cash of the series. Right behind him on the payouts was Joshua ‘YogaGrandma’ Berardi who busted in sixth place for $990.99, making his fourth appearance in the money during NJCOOP.
