From April 19-27, NJ.partypoker.com and BorgataPoker.com will host the New Jersey Championships of Online Poker, which is being dubbed the "NJCOP." The 15-event series, which will feature $600,000 in guaranteed prize money, will be held at the same time as the World Poker Tour World Championship, which is being held at the Borgata for the first time.
“If you love poker then you need to be in New Jersey come April 19,” said Team partypoker captain Mike Sexton. “The online poker action in New Jersey has been red hot since day one and the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker will be the ultimate test for pros and amateurs alike. What’s more if you are coming from out of town to play the partypoker WPT World Championship at the Borgata it is timed so you can make the most of the live and online games!”
The series will culminate with the $200 buy-in Main Event, which features a $200,000 guarantee and at least $50,000 to the winner.
“We believe it is best to be bold in the market,” added Sexton. “We recently smashed the guarantee during our $100K major and NJCOP is going to take it to a new level guaranteeing double that in the form of $200,000 on Sunday April 27 at 5 p.m. ET, with $50,000 to the winner. We’d also like to thank all the customers who provided feedback on the draft schedule on the forums.”
The NJCOP will kick off with a $50,000 Freeroll on Saturday, April 19 at 4 p.m. ET. All players who make the final table in that event will also win a seat into every NJCOP event, a bonus with a value of $2,000. Another highlight is the $500 buy-in High Roller on Sunday, April 27 at 6 p.m. That event features a $30,000 guaranteed prize pool with $10,000 going to the winner.
“It’s so exciting to have the partypoker WPT World Championship coming to Atlantic City and to have the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker coinciding with it," said Monroe native and Team partypoker member Jamie Kerstetter. "New Jersey really is the place to play big online and offline events in April and is a trailblazer for poker in the United States. What’s even better is that it kicks off with a $50K freeroll and the value you get from that if you make the final table of that is amazing as you win entries into all of the other events worth $2,000.”
