The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: "IMJUSTTHEMAN" and "setmining " Win Big

The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: "IMJUSTTHEMAN" and "setmining " Win Big 0001

It's been another big week for New Jersey's online poker players. The Garden State Super Series (GSSS) II on partypoker NJ and BorgataPoker.com is in full force with many big events taking place over the weekend.

888poker NJ and WSOP.com NJ combined forces to share liquidity in select tournaments, and as a result the $25,000 GTD Weekly Sunday tournament has been renamed $35,000 GTD Weekly Sunday.

The biggest online poker tournament in New Jersey over the weekend was the GSSS #13 High - $100,000 GTD NLH. With 472 entrants, this $200 buy-in tournament did not quite reach its $100,000 guarantee, leaving some overlay for the players to feast on.

At the final table, six players chopped this tournament with "TimmyKGB17" coming out on top for $10,275 and "BF-WhizKid" taking second place for $10,071. New Jersey poker players "Smoeseph", "debtoverload8d", "Godzilla", and "PeoplesChamp" finished in third to sixth place respectfully, each taking home $9,271.

While the GSSS #13 High - $100,000 GTD NLH was the biggest online tournament in New Jersey over the weekend, the biggest prize was awarded to "IMJUSTTHEMAN" who beat out a field of 277 players in the GSSS #14 High - $50,000 GTD NLH 6-Max to win $11,405. "FRIELnGood" finished runner-up in this $500 buy-in tournament for $7,759.

The new shared liquidity on 888poker NJ and WSOP.com NJ instantly paid dividends, with the $35,000 GTD Weekly Sunday shattering its new increased guaranteed prize pool with 216 players ponying up the $200 entry fee awarding a combined $39,960 to those that cashed.

After the final cards were dealt, "setmining" padded his online bankroll with $10,589 for the win. "Abnormality" was awarded $6,193 for finishing in second place

Here's a full look at the New Jersey weekend results on partypoker NJ, BorgataPoker.com, WSOP.com NJ, and 888poker NJ.
