PokerStars to Launch Biggest Ever Online Poker Series in NJ


PokerStars has only been officially available in New Jersey for a little over a month but has already set its sights on breaking records in the region.

The first-ever New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker (NJSCOOP) will offer 27 events running from May 15-29, 2016, with an impressive $1.1 million in guaranteed prize pools.

The series will feature both low and high variants of each tournament meaning there will actually be 54 individual tournaments on tap.

The 2016 NJSCOOP will culminate with a $500 buy-in, two-day $200k-GTD Main Event, or a $50 buy-in, $30,000-GTD event on the low side of things.

Qualifiers for NJSCOOP events are already running on PokerStars for as little as $1.

”The global PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) is one of the must-play poker events of the year,” said Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker.

“It’s awesome that it’s coming to New Jersey so that players in the region can experience the exciting tournament structures and the thrill that comes with chasing a major tournament title and big prize money.

"I can’t wait to play in the first NJSCOOP and I plan to stream most of my play live on Twitch. I would love to win a title in its debut year.”

Only players in NJ will have access to NJSCOOP. The complete schedule will be released shortly.

Of course the rest of the world will have access to the prime SCOOP, which runs from May 8-22, and will offer $40,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools. You can sign up for a PokerStars account here.
