New Jersey Online Poker
Sharelines
  • It was another action-packed week for online poker in New Jersey. Check out the biggest tournament winners and latest industry news.

New Jersey's "PeoplesChamp" was this week's biggest winner in the Garden State, outlasting the 152-player field in the WSOP.com/888poker NJ Sunday $35,000 Guarantee to win $9,450. The runner-up in this tournament was "weweweasel", who won $6,300 for his efforts.

Also scoring big was "COLDWARKID", winning the WSOP.com NJ $25,000 GTD Online Championships Event #23 for $8,928. Jake "schaf4206" Schafer took second place for $5,022 in this tournament which witnessed 47 players ponying up the $500 entry fee.

However, it was the fourth place finisher, William "Billson" Gallagher, stealing the headlines. Gallagher not only finished in fourth place in this tournament for $2,930, but also finished on top of the 221-player field in the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com $50,000 Guarantee to win $7,548 after agreeing to a four-way deal with "Zdvol632" (2nd - $6,281), Jamie "JamieKerstetter" Kerstetter (3rd - $6,080), and "Temhigh" (4th - $5,951).
