  5. Sometimes you just have to take a shot. That’s exactly what well-travelled New Jersey grinder Michael Azzaro thought when it came to the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure schedule. One look at Azzaro’s history, both live and online, one can see the bulk of his success has come from East Coast venues in buy-ins of up to $1K. But here at the start of 2019, Azzaro has fired in the $25,000 PokerStars NL Hold’em Players Championship and now, he’s deep in the $10K Main Event. “I’m definitely taking a shot,” Azzaro said. “I played this Main Event last year for the first time.

  8. [caption width="640"] Mike 'Lav519' Lavenburg recently had his biggest live score to date in a Parx event.[/caption] The world of online poker can be a blurry and mysterious one, as a player can garner a following and reputation without anyone actually knowing who that player is. 'Isildur1' is and was the most well known case of that happening but when New Jersey online poker went live a few years ago, ‘mygame’, a player on WSOP.com and BorgataPoker.com, had the same anonymity. In a relatively small player pool, Mike Lavenburg was eventually identified as the player behind the super aggressi
  9. [caption width="639"] Joseph Galazzo is one of a handful of players who won their way into the WPT Five Diamond via satellites on playMGMpoker.[/caption] If you look at Joseph 'JOEYdaMUSH' Galazzo’s Hendon Mob profile, a couple of things stand out. The first, all of his cashes are in East Coast tournaments. Most are at Borgata. Some are at Parx. The second, is about a month ago he hit a $110,011 cash after posting a second-place official finish in the Borgata Fall Poker Open opening event. It was his biggest score ever. Thanks to a $535 satellite win, Galazzo has a chance

The WPT Five Diamond is set to take from December 5-10 and take place at MGM property, the Bellagio Resort and Casino. Even though it's in Nevada

The Almighty Stack event drew the second largest field of the entire series as 1,764 players took their chance at a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.

[caption width="640"] A trip to the desert might be exactly what Mike Azzaro needed to turn his summer around.[/caption] The record heat in Las Vegas this week didn’t stop the masses from heading down the highway to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the annual Electric Daisy Carnival music festival. Mike Azzaro was among those participants who made the pilgrimage. Azzaro’s summer has lacked on the felt with only three cashes and a high point score of $1,178. That hasn’t waned his enthusiasm about his prospects for the remainder of the summer and Azzaro thinks his trip to EDC is just wh

New Jersey's Mike Azzaro was among that group of hopefuls and he fired five times in pursuit of millionaire glory. Despite the volume put in, Azzaro came away with just a single min-cash to show for his efforts. Azzaro’s expectations were tempered coming into the event and he was realistic about his

[caption width="640"] Mike Azzaro is taking a leave from the online world this summer to battle in Las Vegas and prove his chops on poker's biggest stage.[/caption] New Jersey online poker is producing some of the best players on the East Coast and a few of them are out in Las Vegas this summer to take their shot at a full schedule.

  18. It was another busy Sunday for U.S. regulated online poker this week with no shortage of options for players to compete for healthy paydays across the board. Players in Pennsylvania and New Jersey turned to their respective PokerStars clients to participate in the ongoing Summer Series while WSOP.com provided some of the biggest prize pools of the weekend.

  21. Since New Jersey began offering regulated online poker, Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano has been one of the highest-ranked players in the Garden State. His dominance apparently knows no bounds and he's now the top-ranked player in the United States. Gagliano owns the #1 spot nationally thanks to his dominance in New Jersey. In the month of October, Gagliano picked up 12 cashes that qualified for PLB points.
