It may not be the official date on the calendar just yet, but summer is here. That means the World Series of Poker is here. Despite much of the focus being on Las Vegas, online poker players everywhere are still chasing big scores, including in New Jersey.
Many prize pools on regulated online poker rooms in the Garden State over the weekend failed to meet the posted guarantees with lots of players seemingly across the country chasing bracelets, but that only meant there was plenty of added value to those that cashed.
Josh "Shipitagain" Rosengarten nailed down the single biggest score by winning a cool $10,000 in the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com $50,000 Guarantee. Just like his screen name suggests, he "shipped it again" after winning this tournament in March 2015 for $8,721.
Other players reaching the final table were Joseph "megolaman1ac" Liberta (2nd - $6,800), David "phatchoy" Cheng (4th - $4,100), Michael "JohnnyDrama" Haberman Jr (5th - $3,550), Anthony "Flawlessbink" Maio (7th - $2,550), and Yong "LuckySpewy" Kwon (9th - $1,550).
In addition to this final table finish, Maio, under the screenname "l0lflawless," was victorious in the WSOP NJ/888poker NJ $30,000 GTD Weekly Sunday to win the top prize of $8,250. Other notables on the final table included Ryan "Hagzzz021" Hagerty (2nd - $4,800), Pierre "P_aire_146" Deissler (3rd - $2,730), Tommy "ShankU4Chips" Schenck (7th - $1,170), and Craig "Ruby_" Rubinstein (9th - $540).
Meanwhile, Keith Donovan once again had a great weekend by taking first place in the WSOP NJ/888poker NJ $10,000 GTD Weekly Sunday under the screen name "T1mB3y_B33F" $2,778, second place in the PokerStars NJ Sunday High Roller [6-Max] for $6,500 as part of a two-way deal with Michael "J3tBl@ckP0pe" Gagliano, and sixth in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for $2,250.
Speaking of the Sunday Special, two big winners came out on top with "NateTheGrape" and "supremetny" agreeing to a heads-up deal to collect $9,543 and $8,182, respectfuly.
