The inaugural New Jersey Championship of Online Poker begins tomorrow on Party Poker.
It’s the first time a major online series has been held in New Jersey and Party Poker has gone all out on the schedule.
Playable on both the Party Poker and Borgata Poker sites there will be a total of 15 events from April 19-27 with $600,000 guaranteed in prizes.
“It’s going to be an absolutely historic week for poker in New Jersey,” said Team Party Poker captain Mike Sexton in a statement.
“Never before has there been so much money on the line, so many tournaments to play and so many ways to win online and off. If you love poker and aren’t in New Jersey April 19-27 you need to get on your horse and get to the Garden State.”
Championship Begins with $50k Freeroll
NJCOP begins with a $50k freeroll on Saturday, April 18, at 4 p.m. ET. Anyone who makes the final table will qualify for all NJCOP events.
Later in the day there will be a $100 buy in tournament with a $20,000 GTD.
The 2014 NJCOP will include a wide variety of tournaments including bounty, 6-Max and a special Player’s Choice event that has yet to be decided.
Head over the Party Poker website to see the complete schedule.
NJCOP actually runs parallel to the biggest live poker tournament event in NJ this year - the WPT World Championship at the Borgata.
“Day 1A of the WPT Championship, sponsored by partypoker, is on Monday. This is significant for New Jersey and Atlantic City as it is the first time the end of season WPT showpiece event has been held anywhere outside of Las Vegas,” he added.
