2020 NJCOOP Main Event Final Table Results

On Monday night, "DabledoreNJ" won the 2020 New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOOP) Main Event for $22,444 after outlasting a field of 422 over two days of poker. The tournament put the cherry on top of the 54-event series, which catered to 9,350 entrants and awarded $1,125,973.30 in prize money.

Fifty-two entered play on Monday night set to pick up where they left off on Sunday's Day 1. "DabledoreNJ" started the day with a top-10 stack and quickly rose to the top of the counts within the first half-hour of play. By the first break of the night, they had taken their stack of 1.3 million up to 3.6 million as the field had nearly halved with just 28 remaining.

An hour later, the field had nearly halved again as 15 remained. By that time, "DabledoreNJ" increased their stack to 8.49 million, more than the next two players in the counts combined. Play then slowed for a bit with just three eliminations occurring over 50 minutes of play, but three more followed in rapid-rapid fire and "DabledoreNJ" took the chip lead into the nine-handed final table.

The final table lineup was one that included the likes of Day 1 chip leader Shankar "Burgersssss" Pillai and Ryan "hagz2richez" Hagerty, but they wound up falling in eighth and seventh place, respectively. During that time, "st0neydanza" took the chip lead for a brief period, but "DabledoreNJ" reclaimed it after two-plus levels of four-handed play and never looked back as they proceeded to knock out all three of the remaining players in the tournament over the next two levels to earn the top prize and title of 2020 NJCOOP Main Event Champion.

It marked the player's second title of the 2020 NJCOOP after having won NJCOOP 25: $100 NLHE [Marathon], $10K Gtd for $2,778.23.

Multiple Title Winners

One of the big stories to emerge from the 2020 NJCOOP was the sheer number of players to capture multiple titles. Eight different players captured two titles, including the Main Event champ, while Daniel "Ioxonbagel" Buzgon laid claim to three titles!

Buzgon secured prizes of over $13,000 and moved up to second place on the all-time NJCOOP/NJSCOOP Winners List with 12 wins overall. The undefeated champion remains "AvaGray", who won Event #7 to keep their lead with 16 event wins.

"st0neydanza" Eliminated in 2nd Place ($16,456)

HillKerby • Level 38: 175,000-350,000, 45,000 ante

On the very next hand following the double earned by "st0neydanza", "DabledoreNJ" raised to 770,000 on the button and "st0neydanza" defended their big blind.

The flop came {j-Spades}{k-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and "st0neydanza" checked. "DabledoreNJ" made a continuation-bet of 554,000 and "st0neydanza" check-raised to 2.33 million. "DabledoreNJ" three-bet shoved and "st0neydanza" called all in for 12.28 million.

"st0neydanza": {k-Spades}{8-Clubs}
"DabledoreNJ": {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

"st0neydanza" had gotten all of their chips into the middle after flopping top pair only to see that they had run into a set of jacks. The turn {q-Hearts} brought eight possible chop outs to stay alive, but none fell on the river {8-Hearts} and the pot was sent to "DabledoreNJ", who became the 2020 NJCOOP Main Event champion as "st0neydanza" finished in second for $16,456.

A recap of the event will follow shortly, so be sure to stick around.

"st0neydanza" Saved By The Turn

HillKerby • Level 38: 175,000-350,000, 45,000 ante

"st0neydanza" was on the button and open-jammed for 6.5 million. "DabledoreNJ" called in the big blind.

"st0neydanza": {a-Hearts}{2-Spades}
"DabledoreNJ": {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

"DabledoreNJ" was five cards away from the title and needed to fade just a three outer in order to earn it. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{5-Clubs}, leaving "st0neydanza" with just two chances left at a three outer to stay alive. However, they would only need one of those two as the turn {2-Clubs} put them ahead with a pair of deuces that remained best as the river {5-Hearts} completed the runout.

Chip Counts on Break

HillKerby • Level 38: 175,000-350,000, 45,000 ante

The first half a level of heads-up play has produced no significant swings, and the two remaining players find themselves on what is likely to be the final five-minute break of the night. Updated chip counts are as follows.

DabledoreNJ US 36,963,103

Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes Eliminated in 3rd Place ($12,065)

HillKerby • Level 37: 150,000-300,000, 37,500 ante

Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes was on the button and jammed for 4.4 million. "DabledoreNJ" re-jammed in the small blind to force "st0neydanza" out of the hand, who was in the big blind.

Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes: {a-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}
"DabledoreNJ": {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}

Reyes found himself in need of help and all he could amass was a flopped wheel draw that would only become a pair of fours on a runout of {5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{q-Spades}, ending his run in third place for a payout of $12,065.

With Reyes' elimination, the heads-up match has now begun with "DabledoreNJ" holding roughly 80% of the chips in play and blinds about to go increase once more.

Reyes Stays Alive

HillKerby • Level 37: 150,000-300,000, 37,500 ante

Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes found himself down to 3.3 million and re-shoved in the big blind over an open to 600 from "DabledoreNJ", who was on the button and called.

Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes: {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
"DabledoreNJ": {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

The flop came {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, absolutely smashing "DabledoreNJ" and leaving Reyes drawing incredibly thin. Luckily for him, the turn {6-Diamonds} gave him an open-ended straight draw that was completed on the river {10-Hearts} to keep him alive and bring his stack up to 6.9 million.

DabledoreNJ US 28,252,198 1,657,483

"laura33188" Eliminated in 4th Place ($8,846)

HillKerby • Level 37: 150,000-300,000, 37,500 ante

Hand #1: Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes pumped it up to 600,000 in the cutoff and action folded around to "laura33188" in the big blind, who three-bet shoved for 1.67 million. Reyes called.

"laura33188": {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The first card of the runout was the prettiest card in the deck, and all five cards quickly appeared {a-Spades}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{3-Spades} to earn "laura33188" the double and bring them over 3.6 million.

Hand #2: Six hands later, "laura33188" had chipped up to 5.8 million from a few preflop pots and shoved all in on the button. "DabledoreNJ" called in the big blind.

"laura33188": {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}
"DabledoreNJ": {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

"laura33188" found no real help on the flop {j-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{10-Clubs} but picked up potential chop outs on the turn {j-Diamonds} with the potential for a double-paired board. Unfortunately for them, the river came {9-Hearts} to end their tournament run in fourth place.

HillKerby • Level 37: 150,000-300,000, 37,500 ante

Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes jammed for 4 million in the cutoff and "laura33188" quickly called in the big blind when it became their turn to act.

Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}
"laura33188": {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}

Reyes found luck on his side as the flop came {7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} to give him a set of jacks. It held through the turn {3-Hearts} and river {8-Clubs} and the pot of 8.35 million was sent his way for the double, leaving "laura33188" with just 1.3 million after the hand.
