0


The inaugural PokerStars New Jersey Championship of Online Poker kicked off with a bang last week and has so far proven a big success, beating nearly every one of its guarantees. While 19 events have been checked off the schedule so far, players still have plenty more chances to get in on the action. That includes the festival’s much-anticipated $500 buy-in, $200,000 No Limit Hold‘em Main Event, which plays out on October 30-31.

FIGHT_4_F00D’ took the honor of winning the very first NJCOOP title after besting a field of 176 in the $100 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Warm-Up. The New Jersey grinder banked a $4,637 score after taking down David ‘Supadphat’ Cheng in heads-up play.

A total of 70 players bought-in to the Event #2, $200 No Limit Hold‘em Turbo tournament, pumping up the prize pool to $14,880. ‘ShrimplyPibs’ went home with the title and a $4,092 payday after defeating Keith ‘Donnysack’ Donovan and Daniel ‘AvaGray’ Lupo at the final table.

Event #4, the $250 No Limit Hold‘em Sunday Special, attracted 287 entrants who made 162 re-entries. The extra buy-ins were enough to push the prize pool to just over its $100,000 guarantee. ‘BOnEheAd109’ took the top spot, along with nearly $20,000 for his first-place finish, after dispatching opponents ‘Cass N Hoes’ ($14,646) and ‘MrA.Iverson3’ ($10,723).

Monday’s Pot Limit Omaha Highroller Six Max tournament garnered 51 players, creating a prize pool of $39,010. ‘iFoldN0T’ prevailed in the $500 buy-in event, beating out ‘Poppie3333’ to take home a $10,630 payday.

ShrimplyPibs‘ was back on top in the $100 No Limit Hold‘em 1R1A event, winning his second first-place title of the series. The tournament’s 139 entrants made 94 rebuys and 24 add-ons, edging up the prize pool to $23,592, just over its $20,000 guarantee. For his latest victory, ShrimplyPibs added an extra $5,426 to his bankroll, leaving opponent ‘BBQbill7’ to take the $3,774 runner-up prize.

The Event #11, $20,000 guaranteed No Limit Hold‘em Heads-Up CAP 128 tournament boasted a field of 87 runners, and paid out $24,360 to the top 8 places. When all was said and done, ‘Ken Kratz’ took the title and banked an $8,526 payday after taking out ‘Superflu0us1’, who took $4,872 for his second place finish.

Thursday’s $500 Eight-Game Six Max event was one of only two tournaments to not meet its guarantee. New Jersey grinder Daniel ‘AvaGray’ Lupo was the biggest beneficiary of the overlay, taking home an $8,000 payday for his first-place finish.

Event #18 was a No Limit Hold‘em, Deepstack Eight Max tournament with a $15,000 guarantee. A total of 250 entrants made 73 re-entries, smashing the guarantee with a $22,950 prize pool. ‘Gay4Tray’ expertly navigated the field, taking the title and a $4,647 payout after besting ‘BigAl07094’.
