New Jersey Online Poker Briefing: Brandon "sh1tb1rd" Shane Wins Over $12,000

  • Brandon "sh1tb1rd" Shane ships The Big Deal and takes 2nd in the $10,000 GTD Weekly Sunday for over $12,000!

  • New Jersey's "propelOut" and "MikeyBiceps" chop the Sunday Special for $9,799 and $8,549!

  • NJ's "WillAtkinson" and "jameson"make a deal in the $50,000 Guarantee for $9,000 and $7,800!

Entrants and prize pools picked up after declining the past few weeks, mostly because of PokerStars NJ running a Half Price special on its tournaments and the Online Championships taking place on WSOP.com NJ.

As it was the last Sunday of the month, also taking place this weekend was WSOP NJ/888poker NJ The Big Deal, where, for a $500 buy-in, players competed for at least a $30,000 prize pool. With 77 entrants including reentries, this tournament tournament easily surpassed the guarantee by generating a huge $35,959 prize pool.

Well-known poker coach Brandon "sh1tb1rd" Shane won this tournament for $10,428 for the biggest score of the weekend and padded onto his winnings with a second place finish in the WSOP NJ/888poker NJ $10,000 GTD Weekly Sunday for $1,620.

New Jersey's "propelOut" was the biggest winner this weekend on PokerStars NJ after shipping the Half Price Sunday Special. He collected $9,799 as part of a heads-up deal with "MikeyBiceps", who collected $8,549 for his runner-up performance.

Last week's Sunday Special winner, "BADBEATSBYME", had another great weekend on PokerStars NJ by shipping the Half Price Sunday High Roller for $6,721.

Meanwhile, two players scored big over thanks to a deal reached in the $50,000 Guarantee on partypoker NJ and BorgataPoker.com with "WillAtkinson" winning a cool $9,000 as the official winner, and "jameson" taking home $7,800 for second place.

Here's a full look at the New Jersey Sunday results on PokerStars NJ, partypoker NJ, BorgataPoker.com, WSOP.com NJ, and 888poker NJ:
