The first ever PokerStars New Jersey Championship of Online Poker finished up this week after over two weeks of exciting action. In total, 43 events were played with over $1,200,000 in guarantees up for grabs.

The action culminated on October 31 when Jesse ‘Rou$ey’ Elliott took down the $500 buy-in, $200,000 Guarantee No Limit Hold‘em Main Event for $38,380. Elliott earned the title after defeating a final table that included Darren ‘oldmoneyD’ Elias and PokerStars Team Pro Victor Ramdin. The event drew 425 players, leaving a slight overlay to the guarantee.

That win marked Elliot’s second of NJCOOP as he shipped the Event 21 $350 No Limit Hold’em “Sunday Special.” After agreeing to a deal with PokerStars Team Pro Chris Moneymaker, Elliot walked away with $17,817.72 while Moneymaker took home $15,942,72

The highest buy-in event of NJCOOP saw 115 players enter the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller. ‘babooshk’ found his way to the top of the final table mountain and $25,011.89 richer after beating ‘HoodP0PE’ to ship the event.

While most of the mixed game events took place during the first week of the series, the $100 No Limit Hold’em/Pot-Limit Omaha Six Max started the second week off strong with 210 entries creating a prizepool of just under $20,000. In the end it was ‘icrackstick’ winning the event along with $4,434.05

Following five starting flights, Day 2 of the $150 No Limit Hold‘em Six Max kicked off on Thursday, October 27 with 32 players remaining from the 307 who entered across the opening flights. It was a “Who’s who” of PocketFivers at the final table as Jeremy ‘FunkyJesus’ Danger, Fred ‘ScoobyD0O’ Ferrell, Matt ‘el binko’ Iles and Joshua ‘YogaGrandma’ Berardi were among those who made it to the final six. In the end, Danger defeated Ferrell heads-up to win the title and the $9,467.40 first place prize.

The $300 No Limit Hold‘em Four Max drew a field of 179 players that ended in a three-way deal. Kevin ‘sofcknsickk’ Campbell and Steve ‘7douche’ Madara were among those in the deal with Madara winning first place and $9,322.18 while Campbell took second and $9,329.53. ‘HoodP0PE’ took third place and $11,352.65.

The final event of NJCOOP was a $150 No Limit Hold’em Hyper-Turbo Six Max which drew 164 entries. First place was $5,420, which was won by ‘Three6Latvia.’
