Huge week for Michael Gagliano! Ships the $50K Gtd after taking third place in the Borgata Spring Poker Open.
New Jersey's "axn87" wins big! Takes down the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for $10,200!
The NJSCOOP kicks off on PokerStars NJ on May 15 with 54-events and $1 million in guaranteed prizes!
For a second straight week on Sunday we witnessed action picking up in the Garden State with most of the major online poker tournaments meeting their posted guarantees and exceeding last week's prize pools.
New Jersey's biggest single cash over the weekend belonged to "axn87", who won an impressive $10,532 after finishing on top of a three-way deal with "UFLOPITURN" (2nd - $9,538) and "LuieAnderson" (3rd - $8,544) in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special, $50,000 Gtd.
However, BorgataPoker.com pro and Cardrunners instructor Michael Gagliano was the star of the weekend by appearing on three final tables on Sunday in tournaments with at least a $10,000 prize pool, including an outright victory under his "Gags30" screenname in the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com $50,000 Guarantee for $10,200.
Three other notable players appeared on the final table in this tournament including Erick "BOBBY_DIGITAL" Patrick (2nd - $6,717), Joseph "megolaman1ac" Liberta (4th - $4,080), and Mario "Pwnasaurus" Silvestri (6th - $2,907), who in March won a cool $1 million in daily fantasy sports after winning the DraftKings Fantasy Basketball World Championship.
Gagliano's two other final tables came on the WSOP NJ/888poker NJ network where under the screenname "itWasThatOr0", where he took second place in the $10,000 GTD Weekly Sunday for $1,878 and ninth place in the $30,000 GTD Weekly Sunday for $566.
