'SaucyPaws' finally got his paws on an NJCOOP title on Wednesday after a couple of close calls.

Three-quarters of the way through the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker, ‘SaucyPaws’ had gotten as close as a player can to winning a title without winning it not just once, but twice.

That all changed on Wednesday night as ‘SaucyPaws‘ beat Michael ‘J3tBl@ckP0pe’ Gagliano heads-up to win Event #33 ($200 No Limit Hold’em [Win the Button]) for $5,136.92. Gagliano, who already has two titles this NJCOOP, earned $3,907.52 for his runner-up finish. Edwin ‘GiantGeniu$’ Roman banked $2,972.40 for coming in third place.

PokrStarsWIN‘ outdueled ‘Big Chips79‘ to take down Event #33 ($25 No Limit Hold’em [w/rebuys]) for $2,595.35. ‘Big Chips79’ pocketed $1,805.44 while third place finisher ‘jimmy2xtimes‘ had to settle for $1,371.00.

NJCOOP continues daily until Sunday when the $500 buy-in, two-day Main Event begins.
