Jason "TiltedHard" Lawhun wins NJSCOOP 48-H: NLHE [6-Max, Rebuy] ($3,628.61)

Jason "TiltedHard" Lawhun accomplished a feat on Saturday which is rare for any poker player to accomplish within a single festival as he won his third NJSCOOP title in the 48-H: NLHE [6-Max, Rebuy]. The $3,628.61 top prize that Lawhun claimed was the biggest single prize awarded on Saturday during the NJSCOOP.

Lawhun is a well-known grinder from the Garden State with nearly $2.2 million in online tournament cashes as tracked by PocketFives with more than $600,000 of this coming at PokerStars alone.

Although the final table was six-max, thanks to the tidy field of just 34 entries the tournament paid out four spots. In addition to Lawhun, Xingang "wxg1989" Wang, Naichang "cncly1314" Chen, and Benji “OtB_RedHeron” Felson also cashed with the four players benefitting from the $1,175 in overlay.

"mariopartypoker" Wins MISCOOP-33-H: $500 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller] ($11,841.65)

Another big night of big bounties was on tap for Michigan natives and visitors, as the 2021 PokerStars Michigan Spring Championship of Online Poker saw Event-33-H: $500 NLHE (8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller) blow past the advertised guarantee, giving the 104-entrant field a $48,880 prize pool to shoot at between bounties and the tournament prize pool.

In a unique end to the tournament, "mariopartypoker" earned the victory after being pitted heads-up against "nurtureisnature", who had disconnected from the tournament near the end of three handed play. With a $3,719.58 bounty on "nurtureisnature", "mariopartypoker" decided to take no chances and quickly ground down the 53 big blind stack of "nurtureisnature" to the felt in a ten-minute span.

For their victory, "mariopartypoker" earned $4,920.20 from the tournament prize pool, as well as all the bounties they accrued through the tournament and their own bounty, which totaled $6,921.45. All told, "mariopartypoker", who fired two bullets in today's tournament, walked away with a total cash of $11,841.65.
