The two biggest winners last weekend came in the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com $50,000 Guarantee, which since converting to a re-entry last month has consistently met its guarantee. This week's tournament was no different with 311 entrants ponying up the $215 buy-in to generate a healthy $62,200 prize pool.
The tournament ended in a three-way deal with "KingofNJ" being declared the official winner, collecting $8,988. Also part of the deal were "Kanish29" who finished in second place for $8,874 and Steven "stevenmadara" Madara who collected $7,533 for taking third.
Madara also appeared on the final table in the second biggest online tournament over the weekend, finishing in fifth place to earn $1,898 in the WSOP.com/888poker NJ Sunday $30,000 Guarantee.
However, Sean "sisco" Sisco was the one to shine through the field of 170 players in that tournament to take first place for $8,541. New Jersey's "QIGONG" should also able to feel good about a nice payday, having finished second to earn $4,983.
Other well-known New Jersey players to appear on the final table in the $30,000 Guarantee included Brian "Deusexmachin" Willis snagging $2,847 for third place and Baruch "gamblegamble" Krieger banking $1,582 for sixth place.
