$1.2 Million Up For Grabs During PokerStars’ Upcoming NJCOOP Series

Written By Steve Ruddock on September 22, 2017

[toc]After a stellar debut last fall, the PokerStars New Jersey Championships of Online Poker (NJCOOP) will be returning to New Jersey for an encore performance in a little over a week.

The upcoming series will be one of the biggest and richest in New Jersey online poker history. NJCOOP features 46 unique tournaments, boasting a combined $1.2 million in guarantees.

Save the NJCOOP dates

The series kicks off with a two-tournament slate on Sept. 30:

  • Event #1: $100 Nightly Stars – NJCOOP Warm-Up, with a $20,000 guarantee
  • Event #2: $200 NL Hold’em [Turbo] – NJCOOP Warm-Up, with a $10,000 guarantee

NJCOOP wraps up on Oct. 17, with Day 2 of the NJCOOP Main Event, along with two other tournaments:

  • Event #45: $150 NL Hold’em [Nightly Stars SE – NJCOOP Wrap-Up], with a $20,000 guarantee
  • Event #46: $100 NL Hold’em [Deep-Hyper, 6-Max], with a $10,000 guarantee

In between, there are multiple NJCOOP to choose from every day.

An NJCOOP tournament for everyone

There’s a little something for everyone in the upcoming NJCOOP series.

Players will find:

    • Pot-limit Omaha (PLO)
    • Five-card PLO
    • NL Omaha hi/lo
    • Triple Stud
    • Mixed games

There is also everything but the kitchen sink when it comes to no-limit hold’em variants, including:

  • Zoom Poker
  • Progressive knockouts
  • Hypers
  • Turbos
  • Speed-downs
  • Win the button
  • Deep stacks
  • Big antes

There’s also a lot of variety when it comes to the entry fees.

NJCOOP tournament buy-ins start at just $25 for some events, and range as high as $1,000, which is the entry fee for Event #30, a NL High Roller tournament.

The NJCOOP Main Event

The Main Event of the NJCOOP is a $500 buy-in, $200,000 guaranteed, no-limit hold’em tournament.

If you’re trying to win a seat in the Main Event on the cheap, PokerStars NJ is running a number of different satellite options. There are Spin and Go satellites beginning at just $4, as well as the usual array of Sit & Go’s and MTTs.

You can find the complete NJCOOP satellite schedule here.

Second chance freerolls

An interesting new wrinkle this time around is the Second Chance freerolls.

Any participant who registers for an NJCOOP tournament and doesn’t cash will receive a free entry into a second chance freeroll. Up for grabs is at least $1,500 in future NJCOOP tournament tickets, including entries into the $500 NJCOOP Main Event.
