NJ Online Poker Hosts Expanded PokerStars NJSCOOP With $1.2 Million In Guarantees

Posted on April 1, 2020

It’s back! For a fifth year, PokerStars New Jersey will be running the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker. And this year’s NJSCOOP is the largest yet.

The NJSCOOP has expanded its schedule every year since it debuted in 2016, and this year is no exception. Running from April 11-27, this time there will be 48 events, each of which features both a “High” and “Low” tier to make 96 tournaments total.

All 96 of the tournaments sport guaranteed prize pools, adding up to $1.2 million in total guarantees.

NJSCOOP offers NJ online poker players variety

The schedule itself is similar to past NJSCOOPs, expanded from the 41 events and 82 tournaments of a year ago. This year the Main Event (High and Low) is again a two-day event beginning on Sunday, April 26.

The “High” Main Event has a $300 buy-in and features a $100,000 guarantee, while the “Low” Main Event has a $50 buy-in and a $30,000 guarantee.

Aside from the Main Event, the buy-ins for each of the other tournaments follow the same formula with the “Low” buy-in being exactly 1/10th that of the “High.”

For example, the High Roller, a six-handed no-limit hold’em tournament scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, has a $100 buy-in for the “Low” version and a $1,000 buy-in for the “High” (in both cases the largest buy-ins for each tier).

As to be expected, the great majority of NJSCOOP events are no-limit hold’em, although in many different formats.

The NLHE events feature both short-handed and full ring tournaments, differently-paced structures (from “Hyper-Turbo” to “Marathon”), various starting stacks (including “Deepstack” events), “Win the Button” and “Zoom” events, plus several “Progressive Knockout” events with bounties.

There are six different pot-limit Omaha events (one in each tier), among them a PLO hi-lo event and a 5-Card PLO one. There is also a no-limit Omaha hi-lo event, one featuring the 8-game mix, and one seven-card stud hi-lo event.

NJSCOOP promotions, freerolls

NJ online poker players should keep an eye out for satellites to win entries into NJSCOOP events both leading up to the series start on April 11 and beyond. They should also pay attention to the associated promotions PokerStars NJ is rolling out to go along with NJSCOOP.

From now through April 26, there will be Special Edition $3 Spin & Go’s every day in which players can win Main Event tickets.

There is also a $9K Main Event Depositor Freeroll on April 26 that will award 30 seats to the $300 “High” Main Event.

Additionally, those who fail to make the money in NJSCOOP events will still have a chance to make some cash. Each day of the series there will be Daily $1K Second Chance All-In Shootout Freerolls explicitly for players who enter events and bust before the money.
