To the delight of poker players in New Jersey, the third edition of the Garden State Super Series (GSSS) kicked off this weekend on partypoker NJ and BorgataPoker.com. The GSSS III features 43 tournaments from Oct. 11-25 with $800,000 in guaranteed prizes to be awarded to the winners.

The biggest event in the poker festival thus far has been the GSSS #2 - $75,000 GTD NLH, where 447 entrants ponied up the $215 buy-in to generate a $89,400 prize pool. The tournament ended in a four-way deal, with "Squishy" claiming the top prize of $13,000. Other players involved in the deal that scored big included "NJBorgata" finishing in second place for $11,000, "All_In_Me" securing $9,500 with his third-place finish, and "MickVictory" grabbing fourth place for $8,450.

The GSSS #3 - $20,000 GTD NLH 6Max Rebuy also surpassed its posted guarantee with 113 players contributing towards a $28,000 prize pool. New Jersey's "mixedfish" was the last man standing in this tournament banking $5,800, while "Glitterbunny3" finished in second place for $4,116.

Over on WSOP.com NJ and 888poker NJ, it was "donkfest85" outlasting a field of 164 players in the Sunday $30,000 Guarantee to win $8,192. New Jersey's "liquidTLO" won a solid consolation prize of $4,779 for his second-place finish.
