Party Poker is one of the leading poker providers in New Jersey and now they are aiming to distance themselves from their competitors through the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker. The online tournaments will be held parallel with the WPT World Championship live poker tournament in Borgata casino and will feature 15 tournaments with a combined guaranteed prize pool of $600,000.
“If you love poker then you need to be in New Jersey come April 19,” Said Mike Sexton from Party Poker and continued “The online poker action in New Jersey has been red hot since day one and the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker will be the ultimate test for pros and amateurs alike. What’s more if you are coming from out of town to play the partypoker WPT World Championship at Borgata it is timed so you can make the most of the live and online games! ”
“We believe it is best to be bold in the market. We recently smashed the guarantee during our $100K major and NJCOP is going to take it to a new level guaranteeing double that in the form of $200,000 on Sunday April 27 at 5pm ET, with $50,000 to the winner. We’d also like to thank all the customers who provided feedback on the draft schedule on the forums.” Sexton added.
The main event will be guaranteeing a prize pool of $200,000 and a first prize of $50,000 for a $200 buy-in. The series will start on April 19th and run until April 27th, with the first tournament being a $50,000 freeroll, where players not only get free money for a good placement, the final table also get buy-ins to all the tournaments in the NJCOP.
