Day 2 of the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOOP) Event #52: $300 NLHE Main Event saw fifteen players return to the virtual felt from a starting field of 334, all vying for the top prize and the final NJCOOP Championship Trophy of the series. When the dust cleared after a quick day of just over two hours, it was Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari who earned the win and $18,660 for his efforts, the largest win of his career on PokerStars New Jersey.

Sangannagari, who also shipped a NJSCOOP event earlier this year, started the day with the chip lead, and by the time the final table of nine was reached, had propelled his stack to over ten-million, or nearly 90 big blinds.

Once the field was reduced down to five, Sangannagari held more than half the chips in play and looked poised to run straight through the final table with little opposition. However, Sangannagari ran into some turbulence in the form of runner-up "TiltedHard". Sangannagari persevered, and eventually knocked out "TiltedHard" to claim the NJCOOP Main Event Championship Trophy.

NJCOOP Event #52: $300 NLHE Final Table Results

1Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari$18,660
5Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes$5,453
6Benji “OtB_RedHeron” Felson$4,009

Day 2 Action

Before the final table of nine could be reached, six players had to hit the rail. It only took thirty minutes for "JohnnyMania", Randy "Rhino609" Evans, Christopher "Chalmisi6" Hill, "iFoldN0t", "jpmcmanus14", and "newport_kangbaz" to bust, and the final table was reached.

The first five bustouts of the final table came, interestingly enough, in order of lowest chip position at the start of the final table. "URpoker64"and "borachinhak" were both quickly eliminated at the beginning of the final table, and after a short lull, "soothsay" and Benji “OtB_RedHeron” Felson both fell to bring the field to five-handed play, with Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari holding over the half the chips in play by virtue of sheer, constant aggression.

After Sangannagari eliminated Jaime "moosedeer17" Reyes in fifth, the wheels started to fall off for Sangannagari's sun run. "TiltedHard" first doubled through Sangannagari, and then Sangannagari lost a series of small pots to fall back to a distant third behind "TiltedHard" and "pompii23". Sangannagari pulled close to the remaining duo when he eliminated "deeeeeeeeez" in fourth, but "TiltedHard" caught a big bluff from "pompii23" to bring the field down to two.

Despite "TiltedHard" beginning heads-up play with a 2:1 chip lead, Sangannagari got very lucky to crack the eights of "TiltedHard" to even stacks out. From there, Sangannagari continued to use his aggressive ways to whittle down "TiltedHard" to under twenty big blinds. "TiltedHard" got those last blinds in with seven-six suited, but Sangannagari held the goods with pocket sevens and held to earn the NJCOOP Main Event Championship Trophy.

TiltedHard eliminated in 2nd
TiltedHard eliminated in 2nd

Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari raised to 700,000 from the button, and "TiltedHard" three-bet shoved for 6,036,398 in the big blind. Sangannagari called.

"TiltedHard": {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari: {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}

"TiltedHard" was in rough shape, and the {k-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop kept their prospects dim. The {4-Clubs} turn gave "TiltedHard" a sliver of hope with gutshot, but the {10-Diamonds} river was the last card dealt in the tournament. "TiltedHard" earns second place and $13,720, while Sangannagari earns the NJCOOP Main Event Championship Trophy.

A full recap will follow shortly.
