The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: NJCOP II Wraps-Up

The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: NJCOP II Wraps-Up 0001

It was a huge weekend for New Jersey online poker players, as the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker II (NJCOP II) wrapped up its 35-event schedule on partypoker NJ and BorgataPoker.com.

The NJCOP II Main Event attracted 659 players who ponied up the $200 buy-in in hopes of grabbing a share of the $150,000 guaranteed prize pool. New Jersey's "MattLoFan89" won $25,613 after winning the heads-up match against "jmoney", who scooped a prize of $18,450 for his runner-up finish.

"MotherMary" took first place in the NJCOP #31 - $75,000 GTD NLH Slow Highroller, outlasting the 97-player field to win $20,734. "HodorHodorHodor" also managed a nice payday in this tournament after finishing in second place for $14,237.

The big winner on WSOP.com NJ and 888poker NJ was Darren "darrenelias" Elias, who shipped the weekly $40,000 Guarantee for $10,600. Elias is no stranger to the big stage, amassing over $3.5 million in online tournament cashes tracked on PocketFives.com and over $2 million in live tournaments according to The Hendon Mob.

Meanwhile it was "Confluence" winning $3,200 after he outlasted the 48-player field in the Big Sunday on 888poker NJ.

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