  1. It’s not easy to crack into online poker’s worldwide top-100 rankings. But for Americans who play inside U.S. borders on regulated sites, it’s even tougher. United States-based players don’t have access to the massive player pools and huge guarantees that some of the top players grind in order to rack up leaderboard points. For these pros, it takes a doubling-down of volume and effort in order to earn their spot and recognition among online poker’s best. And this week, four of America's best have succeeded in doing just that. Frank ‘thewholefunk’ Funaro Jr. (#52) New Jersey’s Frank Funaro is the current #1-ranked player in the United States and currently sits at #52 in the world. Funaro is in the midst of a career run, sitting just one spot off his career-high ranking and speed toward $1 million in total online poker earnings. Funaro has been stockpiling PLB points all summer including 19 PLB-qualifying scores in August. However, he really heated up after he took down the September 14 edition of the WSOP.com $100,000 Player Appreciation tournament for $19,741 and 325.69 PLB points. Just two weeks later, Funaro grabbed gold again by winning the WSOP.com $2,000 buy-in $150,000 guaranteed NLH High Roller for another $44,489 and 446.65 points. For the entire month, Funaro pulled in 38 cashes for a total of just over $102,000 in earnings. After a solid two-month grind, Funaro has been taking it easy. With just 11 cashes in October and, as of yet, no major recorded scores in November, he’ll find himself slipping down the rankings soon. But after all his hard work, he’s still likely to have a spot in the top-100 for a little while longer. David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (#62) David Coleman has just added to his long list of accomplishments, which includes a win in the New Jersey WPT Online Poker Open earlier this year, by reaching a career-high worldwide ranking of #62. Coleman, who is perpetually in the conversation when one talks about the best U.S. online poker players, has been steadily picking up PLB points throughout September and October. However, on October 28 he really received a boost with a pair of five-figure scores. Coleman just narrowly missed out on picking up a WSOP Circuit ring with a third-place finish in the WSOP Circuit Event #13 ($100,000 NLH High Roller, 6-Max) for $25,183 and 273.63 PLB points. The same day, he took down the WSOP Tuesday Showdown for another $17,302 and 246.39 PLB points. Coleman has continued his grind into November, already picking up some key PLB points including a win in the PokerStars NJ $250 Super Tuesday for $5,318. As more results come in, Coleman has a clear shot at cracking the top 50. Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (#90) World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Yong Kwon currently sits at #90 in the world having been ranked as high as #47 just last year. Known for his dedication to grinding, Kwon has spent years being known as one of the most dominant players from the Garden State racking up accolades and often times holding the #1 U.S. ranking for months at a time. After taking the first two weeks off in October, Kwon racked up 47 in-the-money finishes with 15 scores of four-figures or higher. His heavy PLB point push came as the month was coming to a close with back-to-back victories on WSOP.com. First, he took down the $20,000 Weekly Thursday for $7,162 and 157.16 PLB points. Then he added a win in the $10,000 Weekly Friday for another $2,800 plus 100.00 PLB points. His spotlight score took place in the WSOP.com PLO Mania Event #13 ($25,000 PLO) for $9,770 and 193.29 points. Kwon kicked November off with a fast start taking third place in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for another $4,721 adding to his more than $3.75 million in lifetime online earnings. Angel ‘ChromeKing’ Lopez (#92) Angel Lopez broke through into the top 100 this week for the first time, rising 16 spots to a career-high ranking of #92. Lopez used a flurry of PLB-qualifying cashes in recent weeks to propel himself up the rankings. It got started with a third-place finish in the October 21 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $6,398. He followed that up with a run in the WSOP Circuit Event #11 ($250,000 NLH Main Event) for $1,319. Then, he went on a three-tournament tear in earl November picking up points in bulk. First, a deep run in the November 2 WSOP.com $100,000 GTD Sunday brought him $2,707. He followed that up two days later with a third-place finish in the PokerStars NJ $250 Super Tuesday for $2,707. Finally, he capped it all off with a victory in the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday and taking home the $5,759 first-place prize.

The site will have limited operating hours during the first three days before moving to an around-the-clock product on March 19. There is also a cap of 500 active players at any given time.

  4. [caption width="640"] The first ever NJSCOOP Main Event goes Sunday.[/caption] If PokerStars executives had any anxiety about turnout for the inaugural New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker, they can rest easy now. Over the first week and a half of play, Garden State poker players turned out in droves for the series, covering 37 out of 44 total guarantees. That's good news for everybody with the Main Event set for Sunday. While some of New Jersey's best have dominated the first week and a half of play, a former WSOP Main Event champ stole the show on Thursday night. Chris Moneymaker won the High editon of the Pot Limit Omaha event. Moneymaker, playing under the screenname 'Money800NJ' beat out 45 other players to win $5,397 in the $150 buy-in event. NJSCOOP features low and high buy-in editions of its events, excluding the middle tier offered in PokerStars’ main SCOOP series. The tournament’s first day of action included three No Limit Hold‘em tournaments along with a Pot Limit Omaha event. A player, fittingly named ‘1stp1ace’, took the top spot in the first high event of the series, banking a prize of $1,015. In Event #2, a $100,000 gauranteed NLHE tournament, ‘Richardv1109’ bested ‘9islive’ for a $22,327 payday. In the $20,000 guaranteed companion event, ‘maddoggrik’ found his way to the top, taking home a $4,382 score in the process. Later in the day at the $40,000 guaranteed event, ‘TeethofBags’ came out on top, adding $8,945 to his bankroll. Sunday’s NLHE $30 buy-in event was the first tournament to miss its guarantee. ‘JohnnyMania’ took the top spot in that contest, beating out ‘Pokersanz715’ for a $2,902 payday. Monday’s first two events of the day also failed to meet their guarantees. The final two No Limit Hold‘em tournaments, however, easily surpassed their target prize pools, with ‘HowieWelper’ outlasting 95 opponents in the high event to win the $6,886 first-place prize. Both of Tuesday’s events covered, with the Eight Game low tournament doubling the $5,000 guarantee. Wednesday featured just one event, a No Limit Hold‘em Four Max contest. The high tournament went to Scooby-D0O for $10,175, with ‘#3lynvhmob’ taking the low for $1,708. Thursday’s biggest payday went to ‘0ceans07’, who banked $6,672 for winning the $25,000 guaranteed NLHE event. PokerStars changed the pace a bit that day by offering two Limit Stud tournaments, both of which covered. On the docket for the following day were two NLHE/PLO tournaments, with $15,000 guaranteed for the high, and $5,000 reserved for the low. In the high event, Scooby-D0O claimed his second title of the series along with a $1,966 prize. ‘ForTheThr1ll’ took home the biggest payday on Saturday when he defeated ‘Stever625’ to pocket $4,338. Neither guarantees on Sunday were met, although the day’s low tournament attracted a respectable 505 runners. 158 players turned out for the Event #15 $25,000 guaranteed NLHE rebuy tournament. Player ‘MrKK1985’ banked the top payout of the day, taking home $8,334 for his victory over the unfortunately named player ‘NewJerseySux.’ NJ grinder ‘DerekSutton0’ found his way to the top of the day’s second NLHE event, taking the first-place prize of $4,427. Tuesday’s Pot Limit Omaha tournaments both doubled their guarantees, with ‘pwrdysteam’ winning the high and ‘muirheadt’ taking the low. Later in the day, the $1,000 buy-in $100,000 guaranteed High Roller event played out and saw ‘SGTPowell’ besting ‘solidluck’ to take the title and a $27,743 payday. The event’s low buy-in equivalent attracted a large crowd of 487 runners, who created a $44,700 prize pool. When all was said and done, ‘SneakyPete85’ came out on top for a $7,528 score, with Scooby-D0O once again cashing, this time for $6,599. On Wednesday, 281 players turned out for the $20,000 guaranteed Zoom event, with ‘0verbot : )’ triumphing over the competition for a $5,235 score. The action continued Thursdya with a pair of 1R1A Pot Limit Omaha tournaments. ‘Money800NJ’ took the high edition for $5,397, with ‘DellaBarca7’ locking up the low for $1,139. Later, 239 runners generated a $22,000 prize pool during the day’s $100 NLHE event. ‘J3Bl@ckP0pe’ claimed victory and took home the $4,486 first-place prize. The Main Event Only a few tournaments remain before NJSCOOP’s dual Main Events kick off on Sunday. The Main Event tournaments will be played out over two days and boast unlimited re-entries during an extended registration period. The High event features a $200,000 guarantee with a $500 buy-in. Four places will be paid, with first receiving at least $90,000, second taking $60,000 and third banking $30,000. The Low tournament sports a $30,000 guarantee along with a more affordable $50 buy-in. First place will go home with $30,000.
  5. [caption width="640"] Matt Mendez was overcome with emotion last year after winning The Big Stax XV High Roller only a month after the birth of his daughter. (Parx photo)[/caption] Winning poker tournaments can have a contagious effect. Just ask Fedor Holz. There may be no pure way to prove that “momentum” exists in poker but there is an empirical effect of confidence that some players will attest becomes apparent when they put together multiple deep runs. Matt 'MattEMenz' Mendez is one of the believers and pulled off an amazing run last year that spanned two casinos with Mendez ending up $313,000 richer in the process. He wrapped up the Parx Big Stax XV series in February with a win in the $2,500 High Roller event, beating a field of 193 of the toughest tournament players in the Northeast. After making a heads up deal with Nicholas Gerrity to take first place and lock up $100,000, Mendez was overcome with emotion that was heightened with the recent birth of his daughter, Mathai. “Winning the first tournament at Parx changed my life drastically. Before I could even take the winner’s photo, I had to go take a walk and gather my thoughts and feelings and call my wife," said Mendez. "My daughter was only a month old at the time, but since meeting her I've had a hard time controlling my emotions. When I called my wife I was just crying hysterically in a way that I can't remember doing before. That's a feeling in poker that I can't imagine ever having again and I think about it all the time.” Fatherhood is something Mendez takes seriously and is prideful about. The 27-year-old grew up without a father and was without his mother after the age of 13. He credits his aunt and uncle for molding him into the person he is today and says that being a father is something he’s always wanted from life. “Mathai is special to me. The joy I get from being a father makes every part of my life's journey worth it. My main mission in life is to shower her with all the love I have while also helping to develop her into a strong, happy, healthy, free-thinking woman that no matter what has always felt loved.” Mendez followed up his victory at Parx with a victory two months later in an event relatively the opposite of the Parx High Roller. The Borgata Spring Poker Open $1,000,000 guaranteed Event #1 drew a field of 2,527 and when the dust settled, Mendez was there once again in the winner’s circle. This time, Mendez earned $213,000 for his win and felt a new set of emotions when playing for another title. “Winning the second tournament at Borgata, I felt prepared and ready to win. A weird sense of calm that I can't really explain. I was just in the moment and trusted my gut," said Mendez. "I study a lot of different games and playing styles, so when playing, I'm comfortable in trusting in my gut when my immediate thoughts have mixed feelings on how to approach different scenarios.” While he does put in more volume live than online, Mendez says he likes to play the higher guaranteed events that run. Last month, Mendez capped off the PokerStarsNJ Winter Series by winning the $400 buy-in Main Event for almost $21,000. Mendez and his wife, Victoria, are both stay-at-home parents and take great care in raising their daughter. “As I've evolved and eventually had a child, I've realized they don't care what you do for a living they just notice the time spent together so I've cared less about my financial goals and more about quality time. My wife and I take Mathai to the mall regularly and we also go to a baby gym class once a week. [We] are basically living our dreams of being stay-at-home parents while also having our own jobs that allow us to have flexible schedules. ” Mendez thanks Victoria for all the support she has given him from the time the first met and Mathai for “showing me a level of love that I wasn't sure was possible.” The success Mendez achieved last year was a humbling experience for him given all the new variables in his life at that point. Nearly a year removed, Mendez is still grateful for his victories and considers himself blessed to have the life he does and be able to be an integral part in Mathai's upbringing. “Everyday I'm thankful that I'm good enough at a card game to be able to spend the amount of time I do with her.”
  6. It’s time once again for NJ online poker players to clear their October calendars and prepare to play in the PokerStars 2019 New Jersey Championship of Online Poker. Running October 12-28, PokerStars NJ is bringing back its state-wide championship online poker series featuring 50 events and $1,000,000 in total guaranteed prize pools, anchored by a $300 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Main Event with a $100,000 guarantee. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] The 2019 schedule boasts three more events than it did in 2018, offering tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $50 up through the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller Six Max (October 16). It should be no surprise that the series is packed with NLHE events including the popular Progressive Knockouts, short-handed tournaments, turbos and more. However, No Limit Hold’em isn't the only variant on the schedule as players have the opportunity to win an NJCOOP title in Fixed Limit, Pot Limit Omaha, Mixed Game tournaments and more. PokerStars is pulling out the stops to get players excited for the 17-day series by offering low/no-cost avenues for new and existing PokerStarsNJ players to participate. One of easiest ways to win a seat into the Main Event is to get qualified for the $7,500 Main Event Depositor Freeroll. Players that make a deposit using the promo code 'NJCOOP' between 10:00 ET on Friday, October 11 through 18:59 ET on Saturday, October 26 will pick up a ticket to the freeroll tournaments. Then on October 26, the qualified players will battle for one of 25 free tickets to the $300 buy-in NJCOOP Main Event. Second Chance Freerolls are returning to NJCOOP in 2019. Players who play any NJCOOP event but bust out short of the money will receive a ticket to a secondary freeroll that pays out $1,250 in entires to subsequent NJCOOP events. The Second Chance Freerolls will be taking place daily from October 13-28 and, in total, will be giving back over $20,000 in free entries to NJCOOP events. While not a free entry, PokerStarsNJ will be offering NJCOOP Spin & Go’s where a player can turn a $3 buy-in into a $300 Main Event seat.

  7. Sundays are for grinding. With PokerStars PA now going around the clock, the best online poker players in Pennsylvania now have their own set of Sunday Majors to look forward to each week. While those who still long for the pre-Black Friday MTT schedule might be disappointed, the players in Pennsylvania who have been waiting to get back on PokerStars since that fateful day 8.5 years ago will be excited to head into battle. There's a full tournament schedule to play with buy-ins ranging from $2 to $250 but there are five tournaments worth highlighting. Things get underway at 4 pm with the $30 buy-in Sunday Warm-Up with a $7,500 guarantee. Levels are eight minutes long and players can re-enter up to twice in the first two hours of play. An hour later, the Sunday Storm is a Six-Max event and has just a $10 buy-in and a $5,000 guarantee. Players can fire up to six total bullets into this tournament during the 95-minute late registration period. The highlight of the schedule is the $100 buy-in Sunday Special at 6 PM. The guarantee for the first week is $40,000 and players who bust in the first three hours of play can re-enter up to a maximum of three times. Players looking for a bigger buy-in can fire away at the $250 Sunday High Roller event at 7 pm. The tournament has a $10,000 guarantee and players can re-enter as many as five times during the 2.5-hour re-entry period. Lastly, the Sunday Supersonic has a hyper structure, a $50 buy-in, and a $5,000 guarantee. The tournament begins at 10 PM and late registration is only open for 45 minutes during which players can re-enter up to five times.

  8. New Jersey online grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon’s reign atop the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings continues. After a busy October filled with both the WSOP.com’s Fall Online Championships and PokerStars NJ’s New Jersey Championship of Online Poker, Kwon sits atop the leaderboard with 5,227 points. Since our last update, Kwon accumulated eight more PLB-qualifying scores including a victory in the October 25 NJCOOP Event #37 ($150 NLHE Turbo) for $3,438 and 122.51 PLB points. His largest score over the past month came during the WSOP.com’s Fall OC $50,000 Special Tuesday Showdown where a final table finish brought him $5,382 and another 94.46 PLB points. During the month of October, Kwon racked up 19 five-figure scores for a total of more than $70,000 in earnings. In addition to being ranked #1 in the U.S., he currently sits ranked at #73 in the world and is rapidly approaching $2.7 million in career online earnings. U.S. Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon 5,227 2 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo 4,912 3 David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman 4,828 4 Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov 4,586 5 Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein 4,299 6 Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg 4,198 7 Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner 4,031 8 Jason ‘JLaw’ Lawhun 3,924 9 Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano 3,731 10 Michael ‘JohnnnyDrama’ Haberman 3,634 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (4,912 points) once again sits right behind Kwon in the U.S. rankings. Like all serious New Jersey grinders, Lupo was active in the major online series, putting up big results and taking down titles. On October 17, he took down the PokerStars NJCOOP Event #19 ($100, NLHE Turbo) for $2,370 and 100.00 PLB points. Then, the very next day, he claimed a WSOP.com Fall OC title by winning Event #28 ($10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max) for $3,643 and 110.20 PLB points. Lupo did capture a five-figure score with his runner-up finish in NJCOOP Event #15 ($1,000 NLHE High Roller Six Max) for $11,489, good for another 147.53 PLB points. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Less than 100 points behind Lupo is David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (4,828) who not only ranks #3 in the U.S. but is sitting at a career-high ranking of #93 in the world. Coleman has been putting in heavy volume and it has been paying off. During the last week of October, Coleman finished top-three in four different NJCOOP tournaments. He won Event #32 ($200 NLHE Super Tuesday) for $6,554 and Event #47 ($75 NLHE Sunday SuperSonic SE) for $2,009. On the same day as his second NJCOOP title, Coleman also took down the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday for another $23,408 and 270.46 PLB points. Coleman’s heater continued into the beginning of November as, since October 22, he has 12 top-three finishes - eight of which are good for wins. This includes a victory in the November 6 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $17,036 and another 244.49 PLB points. Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov (4,586) keeps his spot at #4 in the U.S. again this month. Alexandrov also managed to pick up a pair of titles in October. First, on October 13 he won NJCOOP Event #7 ($150 NLHE Sunday SuperSonic SE) for $2,927 and 109.54 PLB points. Then three days later, he topped the field in WSOP.com’s Fall OC Event #22 ($20,000 NLHE R&A) for $8,179 and 173.05 PLB points. Alexandrov has had a nice start to his November, picking up a final table finish in the November 6 WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $4,782. Wrapping up the USA top 5 is Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein (4,299), who moves up one spot from last month. Borenstein holds the honor of being the only player to capture three 2019 NJCOOP titles. His first came on October 15 in Event #10 ($250 NLHE Super Tuesday) for $7,341. He followed that up the very next day by taking down Event #15 ($1,000 NLHE High Roller Six Max) for $20,893. Then he wrapped up his series by winning Event #50 ($150 NLHE Dee Hyper-Turbo Six Max) for $2,775. New Jersey Online Poker Rankings Top 5 New Jersey online poker players.

  9. On the back of an impressive February, New Jersey online grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon has returned to the top of the USA Online Poker Rankings. After spending the past two months in the #2 spot, Kwon (4,516 PLB points) seemingly doubled-down his efforts in February. He increased his volume and picked up a total of 69 cashes, earning more than $86,000 in the month. Of those results, 12 were PLB-qualifying scores including his spotlight score in the February 26 edition of the WSOP.com’s $25,000 NLHE High Roller where he finished as the runner-up for $9,283 and 149.82 PLB points. That came just days after he made a final table run in the WSOP.com’s $50,000 Monthly Sunday where he earned $6,150 and 103.64 PLB points. In February, Kwon booked 25 four-figure scores in the month and 21 total podium finishes. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] That’s what it took to surpass David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (4,459), who dropped one spot to #2. Like Kwon, Coleman spent the majority of the month grinding online, posting 48 total cashes for a total of just over $57,000 in earnings. Coleman kicked off the month with a runner-up finish in the February 5 edition of the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday for $5,060 and 100.06 PLB points. Days later he posted what would be his high score for the month with a second-place finish in the WSOP.com’s $30,000 Weekly Sunday for $7,902 and 138.23 PLB points. His recent results have helped him climb to be the #85-ranked player in the world. Michael ‘JohnnyDrama’ Haberman Jr. (4,076) jumped up three spots to take over the #3 spot in the US Online Rankings. Haberman had a fast start to February with a victory in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for $4,450 and 127.21 PLB points. Then he went on a tear during the WSOP.com Winter Online Championships, taking home three titles. His first came in Event #3 (NLHE 4-Max) where he earned $9,440 plus 188.99 PLB points. Five days later, he went the distance in Event #18 ($15,000 NLHE Turbo Deepstack) for another $5,516 and 142.00 PLB points. His biggest score of the month arrived with his third Winter OC title as he outlasted 353 entries of Event #43 ($30,000 NLHE Special Sunday Deepstack) for $11,932 and another 218.47 PLB points. All in all, Haberman finished the month earning over $62,000 on 54 total cashes and climbed to a career-high ranking of #124 in the world. Longtime New Jersey grinder Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein jumped up one spot to #4 this month after taking all of January off. He returned to the online tables in mid-February to pick up 15 total cashes including a victory in Event #22 of the Winter OC ($10,000 NLHE Knockout) for $4,191 and 153.07 PLB points. Helping him in the rankings, eight of his 15 cashes were PLB-qualified scores. Completing the top-5 for February is Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov, who steps back a single spot to #5. A good part of the reason Alexandrov moved back is simply a lack of volume. The New Jersey resident took the better part of the month off, recording just eight total cashes. However, he booked a big score by taking down the February 19 edition of the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday for $6,765 and 143.18 PLB points.

Bibat put in a solid month of grinding in February, picking up six PLB-qualified cashes over the course of 17 total results. His spotlight score came early in the month when he finished as the runner-up in February 2 edition of the WSOP.com $15,000 Weekly Saturday for $3,140.

  10. PokerStars is giving online poker players in the Garden State something big to look forward to. On Friday, the online poker giant revealed the complete schedule for the fifth edition of their New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker with $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money. The 2020 PokerStars NJSCOOP is taking place between April 11-27 and arrives with an expanded schedule of 48 events. Each of the 48 events features both a “High” and a “Low” buy-in, making for a total of 96 individual tournaments, a significant increase over their 41 event offering of 2019. The schedule has just about everything an online poker grinder could ask for. Of course, it comes with a healthy dose of No Limit Hold'em. But players of all games can find a tournament to circle on their calendars with Pot Limit Omaha, Seven Card Stud, Eight Game, and additional Omaha variants sprinkled in over the course of the multi-week schedule. Main Event Modifications While PokerStars is increasing the number of tournaments, they have actually pulled back when it comes to their Main Events. As in previous years, the series will culminate in a pair of Main Events, one High and one Low, but for the second year in a row, players will see a reduction in the guarantee. This year’s Main Event High has a $100,000 guarantee attached, down from the $130,000 guarantee of 2019. That was reduced from the $200,000 guarantee of 2018. However, it’s not an 'apples-to-apples' comparison because along with the guarantee reduction, PokerStars has made the Main Event High a little more affordable, reducing the buy-in from $500 down to $300 this year. The more attractive price point may, in fact, help funnel more players into the Main Event High. In 2019, when Anthony ‘FlawlessBINK’ Maio took down the $500 buy-in event for nearly $25,000, the tournament only drew 254 runners. This created an overlay of over $10,000 (excluding fees) for PokerStars. With the reduced Main Event High buy-in, PokerStars is going to need 357 players to avoid an overlay, but they will also have an easier time qualifying players. The Main Event High is receiving a guarantee and a buy-in reduction, the Main Event Low is just seeing a reduction in the guarantee. The tournament will stay at the same $50 price point from the past but will be reduced from a $40,000 guarantee down to a $30,000 guarantee. Qualify For The Main For players in New Jersey looking to win their way into the Main Event this year, PokerStars is again offering a number of ways to get in for cheap. The cheapest way is the 30 seat $300 Main Event High guarantee freeroll for players who make a new deposit. Additionally, the online site is offering a special NJSCOOP edition of their popular three-handed $3 Spin & Go’s between March 31-April 26 where the top prize will award Main Event High tickets.

  11. American poker players who are fortunate enough to live in a state with regulated online had a huge selection of tournaments to play in on Sunday. Guaranteed prize pools in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Nevada were obliterated with ease in one of the busiest days in the history of U.S. online poker. The biggest prize pool outside of the WSOP.com Online Super Circuit Main Event belonged to the partypoker USA Network $250,000 Guaranteed which had 1,007 runners to make a $302,100 prize pool. 'UnclePaddy24' won the event and earned $48,034.49. Runner-up 'SharingisCaring' had to settle for a $34,409.19 payday while 'Allyoucaneat' is $24,66.46 richer for coming in third place. The event was the largest ever held on partypoker NJ. Only two events on the site have ever had a $200,000 or greater prize pool. The 2014 New Jersey Championship of Online Poker Main Event had a $200,000 prize pool and the 2014 Garden State Super Series Main Event was the largest ever on the site with $208,490.92 up for grabs. Along with the Main Event of the WSOP Online Super Circuit, WSOP.com hosted two other events that had prize pools in the six-figure category. The $215 buy-in Sunday Special had 657 runners who fired a total of 391 rebuys to create a $209,600 prize pool. Topping that field earned 'mygame' a $30,769.28 score while 'lovemy11cats' pocketed $34,409.19 for finishing one spot below. Third-place went to 'vapor098' for $16,768. The biggest buy-in event on the slate, the WSOP.com $1,000 buy-in $50,000 Monthly Sunday had 88 runners and thanks to 55 rebuys, the final prize pool ended up at $132,050. 'biuberry' earned the title and the accompanying $37,634.25 bankroll boost. runner-up 'Panoramic' grabbed $21,788.25 and third place came with a $13,205 score for 'WATCHGUY42'. 'married' finished seventh in the $100,000 Sunday Special and sixth in the $50,000 Monthly Sunday event for a $13,303.43 windfall. Last week, players in Pennsylvania players gave the $100 buy-in PokerStars PA Sunday Special the first six-figure prize pool in that event's relatively short history. In response, PokerStars increased the guarantee to $100,000 for this week and players made sure there was no overlay. The event drew 1,356 entries for a record-setting $124,480.80 prize pool. The winner's share of $19,175.03 went to 'IoftheStorms'. Runner-up 'nothingbutVvSs' took home $13,786.48 while third place finisher 'wackywhacker' added $9,912.59 to their bankroll. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] The corresponding tournaments in New Jersey have a higher price point and a smaller market but neither had any trouble meeting the guarantee. The Sunday Special, with a $200 buy-in, drew 294 players to beat the $40,000 guarantee by $14,684.

  15. The World Series of Poker Online bracelet events captured the attention of the poker world this weekend but they were by no means the only opportunity for U.S.-based players to take down a big-time tournament. For starters, WSOP.com is running the WSOP.com Online Championships right alongside of the 2020 WSOP. The Online Championships is a month-long series with $6 million in total prize money guaranteed and this weekend the series featured three six-figure prize pools. One of the biggest tournaments of the weekend was the WSOP.com OC #21 ($200,000 Sunday Special Edition) which saw 613 players (384 rebuys) post the $320 buy-in and shatter the guarantee to the tune of a $299,100 prize pool. 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event final tablist Aram ‘X69Podheiser’ Zobian took home the win, adding $43,907.88 to his bankroll. ‘bbqnub1’ finished as the runner-up, earning $32,512.17 while Jason ‘Gunner_Q10’ Gunn shot up to third and walked away with $23,928. Uke ’ooopsmybad’ Dauti took down the $100 buy-in WSOP.com OC#20 ($100,000 Player Appreciation) for a $30,411.99 score. Mike ‘SammyTwizz’ Azzaro captured second place for an $18,750.99 score while ‘betfoldwin’ wrapped up in third place for $13,496.40. The third six-figure prize pool of the day was in the WSOP.com OC #22 ($75,000 Sunday 55). The $75,000 guarantee turned into a $120,500 prize pool as 687 players (1,365 rebuys + 358 add-ons) fired in the $55 buy-in event. Stuart ‘studog’ Gold outlasted the field and banked $28,317.50 with the victory. ‘edypzed’ grabbed $15,062.50 for finishing in second and Francis ‘Specialfx’ Romano grabbed the bronze and $9,881 for their efforts. While WSOP.com was cranking up the prize pools, PokerStars was slashing the buy-ins on their Pennsylvania and New Jersey Sunday Majors to lure in large fields. The PokerStars PA Half Price Sunday Special saw 2,172 entries sieze the opportunity to pay just $50 to take a shot at a five-figure payday. ‘Savant76’ scored the win and took home the $14,730 first-place prize. ‘cowboydollars’ has a few extra bucks thanks to his $10,499.09 score as the runner-up. ‘DaveyJoneLocker’ wrapped up in third place and earned $7,484.12. The PokerStars PA Half Price Sunday High Roller saw a huge boost in attendance this week with 509 players firing the $125 tournament. That’s up from 149 players who played last week with the regular High Roller buy-in of $250. ‘JonCaron215’ took home the bulk of the $58,026 prize pool by claiming the $10,267.58 first-place prize. ‘flipper12x’ finished in second place and took home $7,153.83. And ‘johnnyboat46’ stood on the final step of the podium, earning $4,984.60 for third. In New Jersey, there was a three-way chop in the $100 PokerStars NJ Half Price Sunday Special. Even though ‘zhatka’ was the official winner, earning $6,556.65 it was runner-up ‘HustlersTavern’ who locked up the biggest payday of the tournament, logging off with $7,499.44. Finally, ‘Vote Kanye’ was the third party in the deal, securing $6,841.14 for third place. ‘MyCousinVinny5’ grabbed the gold in the $215 buy-in partypoker NJ Sunday $35K Gtd for $10,280. He was followed by ‘chomeking’, who earned $6,769.38 as the runner-up and ‘Whosyourdoddy’ who fell in third place which was good for $4,883.
