$275k Winter Series Debuts on PokerStars NJ Jan. 22-29


PokerStars arrived in New Jersey to much fanfare (with a $25,000 freeoll in tow) just under a year ago.

Finally returning to the United States after 5 years, poker players in the state were thrilled to see the familiar red spade again and returned to the site in good volume.

Within days it was the #1 poker site in New Jersey and it remains that way today coming up on its one-year anniversary in March.

Before they roll out the special promos to celebrate that, though, there's another big tournament series to indulge in - the $275,000 PokerStars NJ Winter Series.

8 Days, 10 Tourneys

After the $1.2m NJCOOP last fall the $275k Winter Series may be small by comparison but there's lots of value packed into the schedule.

Newark is ready.

Ten events will be spread across eight days starting on January 22 with a $75 buy-in NL Hold'em Six-Max event. A $15,000 prize pool is guaranteed.

That same day sees the start of a Special Edition $200 Sunday Special as well. $65,000 is guaranteed in that one with a $200 buy-in.

A new tournament will begin each subsequent day with buy-ins from $50 and $100 up to $1,000. Guarantees run between $10k and $30k.

The $75K GTD Main Event starts on January 29 at 6 pm ET with a $400 buy-in and $75,000 guaranteed for the prize pool.

Register for the PokerStars NJ Winter Series by searching in the ‘Tournaments’ tab in the PokerStars NJ client.

Low buy-in satellites for all events are running now; if you live in New Jersey and have yet to sign up for a PokerStars account, head to our review to do so for a $600 bonus.
