CHILLY CHIPS: PokerStars Brings Winter Series to Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Jersey With $2 Million Guaranteed

US-based online poker players have plenty to look forward to at PokerStars in the coming weeks. The Winter Series promises more than $2 million in guaranteed prize pools for players in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey from Jan. 22-31.

Players in Pennsylvania can expect $1 million guaranteed with those in Michigan finding a $650,000 guarantee. The New Jersey series promises players at least a $500,000 prize pool.

Each state currently operates in a ringed-in environment. That means players only compete against others within their own states. However, the series should offer plenty of action to stay warm as the temperatures drop outside.
