Top online poker room PokerStars has announced that the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker is coming soon. The full schedule of the series has been released, offering players a total of 80 events with $1.3 million in guaranteed prize money up for grabs. The series will take place online in the state of New Jersey, with tournaments running from April 14th until the 30th.
This is the third year the New Jersey version of the Spring Championship of Online Poker has taken place, with players having access to events in both High and Low format. While there are 80 total events on the schedule, they are split in half, with 40 having Low buy-ins and 40 having High buy-ins.
Players are being offered an even bigger series this year with more events and more prize money. The Main Events are two of the most anticipated tournaments on the schedule, with the High Main Event having a buy-in of $500 and offering $200,000 in guaranteed prize money. The Low Main Event will have a $50 buy-in and provide $30,000 in minimum prize money.
The Main Event of any poker series is a big draw, but the NJSCOOP Main Events will be offering a special incentive this year. PokerStars has decided to provide a Platinum Pass to the High and Low Main Event winners. The pass is worth $30,000 and will be used by the winners during the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship. This event will take place in the Bahamas in January 2019.
PokerStars NJ is also offering players the opportunity to earn their seat at the Main Event. Players will find $4 Spin & Go satellites are already on offer, featuring seats to the High Main Event. Freerolls will also be available along with ticket giveaways. Players have plenty of time to earn a seat to the big event before the series begins on April 14th.
