The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: Paul "StacksGrande" Silva Wins Big

The New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: Paul "StacksGrande" Silva Wins Big 0001
Sharelines
  • It was another big week for online poker in New Jersey. Check out the biggest tournament winners and latest industry news.

New Jersey poker player Paul "StacksGrande" Silva was the Garden State's biggest winner over the weekend, banking $10,800 after being the last man standing in the WSOP.com/888poker NJ Sunday $40,000 Guarantee. The runner-up in this tournament was Jesse "No_Xcape" Elliot, winning a healthy consolation prize of $6,300.

The event provided great value to every player who made it past the money bubble with an $8,365 overlay. The tournament failed to meet the $40,000 prize pool guarantee as it attracted only 171 players.

Louis "PartyVisionz" Galantino also had a big day, shipping the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com $50,000 Guarantee for an even $10,000. New Jersey's "MistaMenza" took second place in this tournament for $6,585. This tournament barely missed meeting its guarantee with 268 players entering, creating a small $420 overlay.

Meanwhile on 888poker NJ, it was "Iron_Lung" beating out a field of 39 players to win the Big Sunday for $3,500. The six players that cashed this tournament all benefited from the small field creating a sizable $2,785 overlay.

In other news, Anthony Maio quietly piled up three final table appearances in big online tournaments on Sunday. Maio won $3,600 with a third-place finish in the WSOP.com/888poker NJ Sunday $40,000 Guarantee where he plays under the screenname "flawlessbink", won $2,350 with a seventh-place finish in the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com $50,000 Guarantee where he plays under the screenname "Flawlessbink", and won $900 with a fifth-place finish in the 888poker NJ Big Sunday where he plays under the screenname "l0lflawless".

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