The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: "Hyperion" Wins $25,000

The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: "Hyperion" Wins $25,000 0001

This past weekend brought some excitement to New Jersey online poker players with partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com doubling the guarantee and transforming the weekly $50,000 Guarantee into a $100,000 Guarantee. At the same time, 888poker NJ also increased the guarantee of The Big Sunday from its usual $10,000 guarantee into a $15,000 guaranteed tournament.

Neither of these tournaments met their guarantees, providing some additional value to the players that cashed.

New Jersey's "Hyperion" was the big winner this past weekend, beating a 506-player field to win the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com $100,000 Guarantee for a huge $25,000 payday.

The second and third highest earners also came in this tournament with "Sveinbinder099" earning $14,855 for finishing in second place, and "MajorMalady" earning $11,445 for finishing in third place.

Meanwhile, it was "Str8yAAnkAAs" scoring big in the 888poker NJ Supersized! $15,000 - The Big Sunday, winning $4,500 after topping a 58-player field.

Mike "South732Paw" Haberman, the runner-up in ThePokerDB 2014 Online Player of the Year Rankings, continued to dazzle in New Jersey by earning $2,625 for his second-place finish in the tournament.

The guaranteed prize pool in the WSOP.com NJ/888poker NJ Sunday $25,000 Guarantee was reduced down to its previous normal limits after a few weeks of the tournament featuring higher guaranteed prize pools, including last week's tournament reaching a $50,000 guarantee.

New Jersey's "mglnow" finished on top of the 169-player field in this tournament to earn $8,441.55, while "OMG_Obama" earned $4,924 for his runner-up performance.

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