$10,000 leaderboard

Each time you cash in an NJCOOP event, you’ll receive leaderboard points.

The best performing player throughout the entire series will top the leaderboard and be crowned the inaugural NJCOOP Player of the Series.

There are $10,000 in prizes to be won for the top players in NJCOOP, with the overall winner taking home a cool $2,500 on top of whatever they bagged during the series.

Qualify to NJCOOP

As usual for major online events, satellites to all NJCOOP events are running around the clock, so it’s possible to spin up a few cents into an NJCOOP ticket and from there a big tournament prize.

On top of that, there are a couple of special ways to make your way to an NJCOOP final table.

Spin & Go seats from $2.50

Special NJCOOP Sit & Go Tournaments will be running throughout the duration of the series, with seats to major NJCOOP events being awarded in place of cash – all the way up to a $500 Main Event seat.

Main Event Freeroll Challenge

If you want to take your seat with online poker’s best and brightest in the $500 buy-in NJCOOP Main Event, here’s how to do it for free.

Play for a share of $200,000 without putting up a cent of your own money with the NJCOOP Main Event Freeroll Challenge. Simply hit “Start” in the Challenge window of the PokerStars client and play real money poker to receive a freeroll ticket.
