NJSCOOP 2018 to Feature $1.3M in Guarantees, Two Platinum Passes

NJSCOOP 2018 to Feature $1.3M in Guarantees, Two Platinum Passes 0001
  • PokerStars NJSCOOP will feature $1.3 million in guarantees and run April 14-30.

As the hopefully final snow storms of the winter die out across the United States, people across the country get excited for longer days and better weather. Poker players have an additional reason to get excited, though: it's New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker time again on PokerStarsNJ.

PokerStars released the schedule days ago for the prominent online tournament series, which will feature a hefty $1.3 million in guarantees across 80 tournaments as PokerStars continues to push the limits of the small but poker-crazy market. Tournaments will run April 14-30.

Twin Main Events will sport $500 (High) and $50 (Low) price points with guarantees of $200,000 and $30,000, respectively.

It's the third year that PokerStarsNJ will host the New Jersey version of their popular series, which takes second only to the World Championship of Online Poker in the pecking order of online tournaments. PokerStarsNJ opened for business in 2016 and rolled out the first NJSCOOP in short order, with the likes of WSOP bracelet winner Mike Wang among those taking down events in the $1.1 million guaranteed series.

Another running in 2017 followed with $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money, and players get the biggest series yet this year.

Additionally, PokerStars is throwing the New Jersey players a bone with two Platinum Passes added into the pool. Those $30,000 tickets to the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold'em Championship will be awarded to the winners of the High and Low Main Events.

PokerStars will also run a number of promotions to pump up the NJSCOOP prize pool. The $4 Spin & Go satellites to the High Main Event are already running. There will also be freerolls and ticket giveaways.
