  1. Atlantic City's own Jake schaf4206Schafer (pictured) got hooked on poker during the Moneymaker boom like many other poker players around the world. He has been on a tear in the month of March on the virtual felts in New Jersey, winning the WSOP.com $10,000 Sunday Guarantee on March 9 for $3,500, winning the nightly WSOP $10,000 Guarantee on March 25 for $3,253, and taking second in the WSOP Weekend Warm-Up $5,000 Guarantee on March 29 for $1,350. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest news and discussion from New Jersey players. PocketFives: Tell us how you got started in poker. Jake Schafer: I started playing poker in college. There was a big group of us that played cash games all the time at Coastal Carolina University. I think most of us really got interested in the game during the Moneymaker period, as watching poker on ESPN all the time got me really interested in and eventually hooked on poker. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Jake Schafer: I play on WSOP.com the most. I like WSOP's and 888 Poker's software the best. I get disconnected and also have geo-location issues a lot with Borgata Poker, PartyPoker, and Ultimate Poker, so I mainly just play on WSOP.com and 888 for now. PocketFives: What has been your most memorable cash on the New Jersey websites? Jake Schafer: The most memorable win would be shipping the WSOP.com $10,000 Weekly Sunday Guarantee. I have final tabled all of the bigger buy-in tournaments on WSOP, but to close out a win in the Sunday $10,000 Guarantee was very memorable. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your success playing online poker? Jake Schafer: Most my success on New Jersey sites has come from years of playing and having experience with the ups and downs of poker. The more you play and the more hands you see, the better you will be. Reading books on poker helps, but to really get better and improve your game, you need to put in the time and volume.

  2. He's back! Brett gankJungblut (pictured) has come out of retirement and can now been seen grinding on several regulated New Jersey online poker sites. A New Jersey native, Jungblut has 23 World Series of Poker cashes and a WSOP bracelet, which he won in 2004 in a $5K Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event for $187,720. He was a former member of the famed "Crew" along with Dutch Boyd and Scott emptyseat88Fischman. Jungblut has over $700,000 in tracked online cashes. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest news and discussion from New Jersey players. PocketFives: Tell us your thoughts on the return of regulated online poker to New Jersey. Brett Jungblut: I think it is great that New Jersey has embraced a regulated online poker scene. Hopefully the people in charge can pave the way for other states to follow. The games, when they are going, have been very juicy. PocketFives: What have you been up to since Black Friday? Did you relocate to continue playing poker online? Brett Jungblut: Black Friday was definitely a life-changer for me, as I had been an online player since 1997, when I first started playing on Planet Poker and the screen name Gank was born. It forced me to play more live poker and I spent the past few years in Vegas grinding. Las Vegas, in general, has felt the force of Black Friday; the games are much tougher and very few true fish are around. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Brett Jungblut: PartyPoker is at the top of my list, as they have enough traffic in all areas to satisfy the needs of my ADD. My one piece of advice for all of the sites is to start running more guaranteed tournaments earlier in the day. It is almost impossible to grind until after 6:00pm or so tournament-wise because there are not a lot of MTTs now. PocketFives: Do you plan on playing in the New Jersey Championship of Online Pokeron PartyPoker/Borgata Poker? Gank: Yeah, I plan on playing a few of the events and winning at least one!

  8. Dan Cooley (pictured), also known as rtheusaon PocketFives, is a very happy camper nowadays. The reason: he can play online poker in New Jersey legally and competitively. Cooley's accomplishments thus far include a second place finish in the Borgata/PartyPoker$50K Guarantee Sunday Major for $6,808. He also finished in second place and third place on two separate occasions in the nightly $10K Guarantee on Borgata/PartyPoker for a total of $3,018. Lastly, Cooley won the Big Sunday $10K Guarantee on 888 Pokerfor $3,000 and recently took down the Ultimate Poker $5K Guarantee for $1,550. PocketFives: What got you started playing online poker? Dan Cooley: When I was 18, I started playing for fun with my cousin Jimmy and, before I knew it, we were playing constantly. The first game I ever played was an 18-person sit and go with my cousin's friends and I ended up coming in seventh, which was a big deal because I made like 5 bucks! I've always been competitive, but was never really good at sports, and suddenly I had an outlet. Also in that sit and go, I lost with A-J to A-10, so it was my first bad beat story. PocketFives: Is there any meaning behind your screen name? Dan Cooley: I have always dreamed of being interviewed by PocketFives and have dreaded the thought of getting asked this question. Here it goes. rtheusa was based off the screen name I used on a "Harry Potter" forum when I was like 14 years old. That's so dorky and I didn't think I would ever share it. As for BrokeArtist, it basically describes my life right now. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Dan Cooley: I would say it's a toss-up between PartyPoker and WSOP.com, although I definitely see the tournament structure at WSOP.com as being the best. I think both of these sites really listen to their clients and take our feedback seriously. Also, the satellites to live events are a huge plus! PocketFives: Since the launch of regulated online poker in New Jersey, what has been your most memorable cash or win? Dan Cooley: I've been very lucky with my early success and hope to have it continue. The most memorable for me would have to be when I chopped the PartyPoker $50K in late January. I was short-stacked that entire tournament. I literally didn't get over 25,000 in chips until there were about four tables left. Even then, it wasn't until right before the final table that I accumulated any chips. So, to be able to chop heads-up was incredible. PocketFives: Is there anyone or anything that helped change how you approach the game? Dan Cooley: PocketFives played a big part in helping me grow as a poker player. Over the last year, the New Jersey pokerforum on PocketFives has helped improve my game immensely. I want to thank my cousin Jimmy (Hoops886 on PocketFives) for pushing me to take this game more seriously and to approach it with a higher level of thinking. PocketFives: Do you play any live poker? Dan Cooley: Not as much as I would like. I was lucky enough to make a deep run in a Borgata Winter Poker Open side event in January. I am definitely hoping to change that over the next year, but with work, it's just not possible now. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  13. According to the recurring Scouting Reportfrom PokerScout, the last four weeks saw the needle move in New Jersey somewhat due to a special promotion from the PartyPoker/Borgata PokerNetwork. After the network's 25 millionth hand was dealt in March, the site geared up almost immediately for its 30 millionth hand promotion. That 30 millionth hand was reached on Sunday, but it didn't seem to drive the traffic the network had hoped for. Throughout the day on Sunday, the key hands drew in some action, but overall, PokerScout noted that liquidity peaked at 500 cash game players. The 30 millionth hand saw the winner take a $10,000 prize, but according to PokerScout, "The players just didn't seem to be very interested." Party/Borgata has been able to control the market for the most part, taking in 43% of the action in the state since the market's launch last November. Caesars Entertainment's WSOP.com has risen up to challenge Party/Borgata, holding 32% of the traffic. These two rooms are basically the "big dogs," especially when the other rooms in the Garden State's online poker industry are put in the picture. The All American Poker Network (888 Poker) has been able to move into a solid third place in the market, taking a 23% share. Ultimate Poker, which is associated with Trump Taj Mahal, has seen its numbers fall to 1% of the market share. The March numbers overall for New Jersey, one of two states that allow full intrastate online casino gaming, showed that while people might not be heading to the virtual poker rooms, they are taking advantage of the other gaming options. The outlets mentioned above were able to bring in $8.6 million in revenuefor the month, an increase over a $7.1 million win rate in February. Of that total, $3.2 million was generated by online poker, virtually the same as February's numbers ($3.1 million), but slightly better than the PokerScout report's projection of $3.08 million. Breaking down the revenue in the online gaming scene, Party/Borgata was at the head of the pack with $4.4 million in overall online casino revenues and Caesars/888 pulled in $3.7 million. The Tropicana/Virgin venture was third in the market, pulling in $1.9 million overall, while Trump/Ultimate ($682,639), the Golden Nugget ($677,746) and Trump/Betfair ($509,556) rounded out the field. In addition to running satellites for the World Poker Tour World Championship that begins next week, Party/Borgata will begin the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOP) on April 19, guaranteeing $600,000 in prize pools over its 15-event schedule. There's even a special NJCOP leaderboard for PocketFivers that you can opt into by clicking here. Caesars is gearing up for the World Series of Poker at the end of May by offering satellites to the Main Event and $1,500 events. Check out WSOP.com for more details.

  18. When Eli curiousgeorge77Elart (pictured) is not busy running his Biker Retail Apparel Shop in Lodi, New Jersey, he has his computer fired up and playing regulated online poker. He plays under the screen name UrMyAtmTodayonWSOP.comand Ultimate Poker. Elart had wins in the WSOP.com $10,000 Guarantee in December for $2,800 and in the WSOP.com Weekend Warm-Up $5,000 Guarantee on March 8, pocketing $2,555. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest news and discussion from New Jersey players. PocketFives: When did you start playing poker and why was it appealing? Eli Elart: I started to play cards at eight years old. I used to sit around the table while my aunts, uncles, parents, and grandparents played 14-Card Rummy. Whenever someone got up to use the bathroom, it was my chance to shine. I grew an interest in poker pretty much like everyone else after Chris Moneymaker won the WSOP Main Event. I hopped online and lost a bit of money until I learned how to play. I found the math and statistical aspects of the game to be intriguing. I am now learning more of the mind games. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sitesto play and why? Eli Elart: My favorite sites to play are WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker, in that order. I like the software on WSOP.com, the tournament selection, and, mostly, the payouts. I like Ultimate Poker for the $5,000 Guarantee nightly and the Sunday $20,000 Guarantee, which always has an overlay. The software is terrible, but the overlays and customer service are outstanding and I hope the software will eventually follow suit. PocketFives: How many hours do you dedicate to poker each week? Eli Elart: I don't really dedicate a specified amount of time to poker; I just play when I have time. I have a full-time job being self-employed. I would say, on average, I play between 10 and 20 hours per week. During the winter, I get to play way more. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your success playing online poker? Eli Elart: I attribute my success playing online poker to time spent on the tables. The fields are also way softer. I also recently decided to spend some of my winnings on coaching. I have had two lessons so far with Mike Gags30Gagliano. I look forward to investing more time and money in coaching because I believe it's an inexpensive way to get the most information in a short period of time. I have also signed up to watch training videos on the PocketFives Training section of the website. Last but not least, I have learned to be more aggressive and play less of an ABC poker game.

  21. Longtime PocketFives member and contributor Jack King (Jaybone2315, pictured) can not only be found in the Off Topic threads of PocketFives with close to 50,000 posts, but also grinding on the virtual felts of New Jersey. King is well known for his sense of humor when posting comments and starting threads and has done some work playing poker as well. He has over $40,000 in recorded online cashes, which includes two wins in the PartyPoker/Borgata Poker $10,000 Guarantee and two wins in the network's $5,000 Guarantee. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest news and discussion from New Jersey players. PocketFives: Tell us your story of how you got started in poker. Jack King: Like most of us, it was right after the Chris Moneymaker win. I actually wasn't that into it, but my brothers kept wanting to play, so I eventually gave in and played a few times. I ended up realizing that I wasn't so bad at it, so I started to play more. But, unlike most people, I lived like 45 minutes from Atlantic City so I played more live than I did online. I never really played online much at all. Even when living in Philadelphia, I would leave class and then hop on the train to Atlantic City. I only played online occasionally to take shots at MTTs. PocketFives: Is there any meaning behind your screen name? Jack King: When I was like 14, my friends and I were about to play some old school first-person shooter game on the computer. We had to make screen names before we could play against each other. We knew some dude around town who went by the name "T-Bone". I jokingly made my screen name "J-Bone" and it stuck. Then, I needed to make a screen name for AOL/AIM and "J-Bone" and "Jaybone" were taken. I was wearing a pair of Jordan XVs that day and on the back of the shoe it had the numbers "23.6.15". So, I looked down and picked the 23 and 15 ("Jaybone2" and "Jaybone23" were also taken, so I just made it four numbers). And there you have it. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Jack King: I don't really have a favorite, but I mostly play on PartyPoker/Borgata Poker by default since they have the best/biggest MTT schedule. PocketFives: What has been your most memorable cash or win on the New Jersey sites? Jack King: Even though it wasn't for the most money, it has to be the first time I won the Party $10,000 Guarantee. I had gotten close a bunch of times, including multiple final tables. I finally broke through and shipped it and it felt good. I made the final table of one of the Party $100,000 Guarantees, but the win in my first $10,000 Guarantee still beats it. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your success playing online poker? Jack King: Even though I was having success prior to teaming up with these guys, I have to give some credit to Gags30 and doubledave22. Those guys have been my coaches since January and they are way better at poker than me. Being able to go over entire tournament hand histories with them and constantly discussing random hand histories as soon as they happen is great. The small leaks they pick out that I wouldn't even notice – that has made me a much better player and thinker so far. Hopefully I can keep getting better.

  23. Frank Molinari (fnasty97on PocketFives, pictured), who lives in Moonachie, New Jersey, has been playing online poker since 2007. He plays under the handles randomrags24on WSOP.com, speedypeteon Ultimate Poker, and fnasty97on Borgata Poker. With over $90,000 in recorded online cashes, Molinari has several notable wins under his belt. He won the WSOP.com $25,000 Guarantee Sunday Major for $7.125, the WSOP.com $5,000 Guarantee for $1,350, the Ultimate Poker $5,000 Guarantee for $1,550. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest news and discussion from New Jersey players. PocketFives: What got you started playing online poker? Frank Molinari: My friend Mike Ricciardi (ECOMIKE on PocketFives) would let me play some $5 sit and gos on his poker account back in the day when we would hang out. I eventually made my own poker accounts around 2007, but didn't begin to play often or seriously online until about a year before Black Friday. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Frank Molinari: I don't have a favorite. I'm just making due with what I have. Borgata Poker and PartyPoker really need to change their payout structures. Ultimate was and is running some good promos and I was pretty upset about the slashing of the guarantees by so much. WSOP.com is pretty solid all around, but dealing with their customer was nightmare on the only two occasions I needed to. I'd also like it if they ran live event satellites all year and ran the $25 Rebuy, $10,000 Guarantee on Sunday PocketFives: Since the launch of regulated online poker in New Jersey, what has been your most memorable cash or win? Frank Molinari: I won the $25,000 Guarantee Sunday Major on WSOP.com in June after making several final tables in it previously. Shout out to ECOMIKE. He was with me that Sunday and it was great to have him there. I also had wins in the Ultimate Poker $5,000 Guarantee and WSOP.com $5,000 Guarantee where I feel I played to my full potential throughout the tournament and came away with the win. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your current online success? Frank Molinari: Seeing the flow, changing gears accordingly, being aware of my table image as well as other players' images, and seeing who is capable of making moves against their image. I also only bet with the nuts, so just fold when I bet! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.

  25. Maureen RedhotmommaLudwig (pictured) out of Glen Ridge, New Jersey is a stay at home mom who juggles a busy lifestyle, but still manages to find time to play online poker in New Jersey. With over $20,000 in recorded online cashes, her notable finishes include a third place in a WSOPOC event for $2,500, a win in the WSOP.com$10,000 Guarantee for $2,750, and a seventh place in the PartyPoker/Borgata Poker $50,000 Guarantee for $1,484. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest news and discussion from New Jersey players. PocketFives: Tell us your story of how you got started in poker. Maureen Ludwig: When I met my husband, my mother-in-law asked me, "Do you gamble?" I said, "No." She said, "You will!" So, I started playing poker in family home games. In 2004, I signed up for PartyPoker, PokerStars, etc. This was before Black Friday. We started a poker backing group with $1,000 and grew it to almost $150,000 in only a few months with four successful players, me being one of them. Players were backed, sent on their way, and got to keep half of their winnings. We then cashed out, paid our taxes, hired a lawyer, and found out shortly thereafter that we could not proceed due to legal issues with poker. I became very experienced back then in only a few years. Sometimes I would play six $100 single-tables at once with a baby in my arms and two toddlers running around. Then, I would throw in maybe ten MTTs throughout the day. PocketFives: What has been your most memorable cash or win on the New Jersey websites? Maureen Ludwig: The most memorable cash for me was winning the $10K on WSOP.com on March 21. The chip leader had me at least three-to-one heads-up and I had made up my mind up that I was going to win it. I also won the $5K on PartyPoker on December 8. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Maureen Ludwig: I prefer PartyPoker and WSOP.com. I love the 10K chip stack that Party gives you in those big tournaments on the weekends. It gives you a little time to make something happen. Yesterday, I final tabled three times in the WSOP.com rebuy tournaments. So, now of course, I think I am starting to like those rebuys as well. I love the satellites on WSOP.com too. I think they are a good value, but I think PartyPoker has done a great job in making the satellites accessible all day long. I would like WSOP.com to have a few in the morning. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your success playing online? Maureen Ludwig: I think I can attribute my success to thousands of hours playing online poker. There are just a few of us who have that kind of experience. I was lucky to have acquired that knowledge before Black Friday. I think the other issue is staying positive. You have to keep your chin up so that you can recover from those beats. I don't want to tilt in my other tournaments I am playing simultaneously. If you do, you should not play too many at once. I am a mother of three girls, so I also have to know when to rest. Gone are the days of sleeping in. I have learned that I do not play well tired! Therefore, I only play $100 buy-ins between one and three times per week, sometimes not at all. I would like to see a few days a week with an earlier buy- in, say an 8:30am start. I also never play when I am in a bad mood. That is a recipe for disaster. You might as well throw your money out the window. PocketFives: How can we get more women to play online poker in New Jersey? Maureen Ludwig: I can't tell you how many women laugh when they find out that I play poker. They laugh because they cannot relate. Or they say, "Oh, my aunt loves roulette!" Why aren't more women playing, thus increasing our player pool? The answer is that women who don't understand the game are intimidated. If they learn how to play online, that intimidation factor will dissipate. We need more incentives to get them to play. Offer bonuses to women who join up and to the people that refer them. Offer women-only tournaments once or twice a week. Hire consultants to help them understand the game. Advertise the stay at home moms that are doing it. I probably play at least 30 hours a week, juggle the groceries, household, piano, dance, soccer, field hockey, swim team, voice lessons, and the social life of three happy girls. I am very lucky because my husband plays, understands, and loves the game as well.
