The biggest event that took place on New Jersey regulated online poker rooms was the $215 buy-in GSSS #30 - $100,000 GTD NLH [Reentry], which replaced the regular weekly $50,000 Guarantee with the same buy-in. Leonard "smoothustler" August took down this tournament for $19,101 after beating "Moose4Life" in heads-up play. "Moose4Life" was also one of three players this weekend to collect a five-digit payday, with his runner-up performance awarding him $13,714.
Other notable players to navigate through the 553-player field to reach the final table included Sean "poopchute" Sisco (3rd - $9,512), Anthony "upayformypennys" Pagan (6th - $5,143), Pierre "P-aire_146" Deissler (8th - $3,097), and Andrew "laumserg" Glauberg (9th - $2,212).
The third five-digit winner came in the $535 buy-in GSSS #31 - $50,000 GTD NLH High Roller 6-Max [Reentry] when Moe "MoeFarah" Farah collected $12,155 for outlasting the 111-player field. "ArmadilloPhil" fell just short of the top prize, finishing in second place for $8,270.
Also at the final table in this tournament were Michael "Gags30" Gagliano (5th - $4,440) and Keith "T1mB3y_B33F" Donovan (6th - $3,774).
Donovan's weekend was far from done, however, as he finished in second place in the WSOP.com NJ/888poker NJ Sunday $30,000 Guarantee for $5,821. "TemptMe" almost had a five-digit score in this tournament after taking it down for $9,952.
