Over those two weeks, players can win a share of $1.5 million in total guaranteed prize money on PokerStarsNJ, with more than $1 million in NJCOOP prize pools alone.
NJCOOP offers players tournaments with stakes ranging from $25 to $1,000 across a variety of formats including mixed games and Pot Limit Omaha, providing something for every poker player and bankroll. Highlights of the series include the $500 No Limit Hold’em Main Event ($150,000 guarantee) as well as the $250 NL Hold’em Sunday Special ($60,000 guarantee) and the $1,000 NL Hold’em High Roller ($50,000 guarantee).
“I’m looking forward to playing and streaming another great online tournament series in New Jersey with over $1 million in guaranteed prize pools, hoping the recent success from NJSCOOP continues into this tournament series. The Main Event as well as the $86 Moneymaker PSPC Tournament is a great opportunity for New Jersey players to win big and get their hands on a $30,000 PokerStars Platinum Pass,” said PokerStars Ambassador Chris Moneymaker.
Three Passes will be awarded across the series – one to the winner of the $86 Moneymaker Tour Event on Sunday, September 30 as well as one each to the winners of the ‘NJCOOP Main Event Entrants All-in Shootout’, taking place on October 16 at 20:00 ET, and the ‘NJCOOP Entrants All-in Shootout’, taking place on October 16 at 21:00 ET.
Satellites for the 47-tournament series will be available from September 18 from as little as $1 with daily Second Chance Freerolls as well as the NJCOOP $10K Main Event Depositor freeroll.
