PokerStars NJSCOOP Returns Next Month With Over $1.2 Million Up For Grabs

Posted on April 24, 2017

[toc]After a successful debut last year, the PokerStars NJSCOOP (New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker) is returning to the Jersey Shore next month. PokerStars NJ is guaranteeing over $1.2 million in prize money during the series.

The series will feature 70 tournaments over the course of 17 days.

The NJSCOOP follows the precedent set by the popular PokerStars global SCOOP tournament series. This means there will be 35 different tournaments, each available at “low” and “high” buy-in price-points to reach 70 total events.

The Main Events

After more than 30 preliminary events, the series will peak on Sunday, May 21 with two Main Events:

  • $50 No Limit Hold’em Main Event (low) with a $30,000 guarantee.
  • $500 No Limit Hold’em Main Event (high) with a $200,000 guarantee.

Qualifying for the PokerStars NJSCOOP Main Event

In addition to direct buy-ins, New Jersey online poker players are able to qualify for the NJSCOOP Main Event via three different paths:

  1. Special Spin & Go tourneys awarding Main Event (High) seats for just $4
  2. The Main Event Freeroll Challenge — win your Main Event seats in weekly freerolls
  3. An $8,000 giveaway of tickets to satellites for the Main Events

Series highlights

In addition to the Main Event, the NJSCOOP features eight other tournaments with guaranteed prize pools of $25,000 or more.

  • Event #2: $150 buy-in (high) NLHE [Progressive SuperKO] with a $25,000 guarantee
