PokerStarsNJ returns to the top of the New Jersey online foodchain from Sept. 29 through Oct. 15 when NJCOOP hits the state. $1,000,000 in guarantees along with three Platinum Passes are up for grabs across the 47-event series.

Price points range from $25 up to $1,000 and feature 10 non-no-limit hold’em tournaments.

Platinum Pass returns to New Jersey

This spring’s NJSCOOP series placed a Platinum Pass into the prize pool for both the High and Low Main Event. The respective winner of each event is heading to the Bahamas in January and three more from New Jersey will join them.

The first one available is the online edition of the $86 Moneymaker Tour on Sept. 30. $30,000 is already guaranteed in the prize pool and the Platinum Pass sits on top waiting for the winner.

“I’m looking forward to playing and streaming another great online tournament series in New Jersey with over $1 million in guaranteed prize pools, hoping the recent success from NJSCOOP continues into this tournament series. The Main Event as well as the $86 Moneymaker PSPC Tournament is a great opportunity for New Jersey players to win big and get their hands on a $30,000 PokerStars Platinum Pass,” Chris Moneymaker said.

All-in Shootouts will decide the other two Platinum Pass winners. The first one takes place on Oct. 16 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time for all entrants of the $500 NJCOOP Main Event. An hour later, all NJCOOP entrants have their shot in the second of the All-in Shootouts.

Michael Page (Main Event High) and Derik Lee (Main Event Low) won Platinum Passes in April.

Opening weekend comes in with a $60,000 guaranteed $250 buy-in Sunday Special. The bar is raised to $70,000 for the $350 edition of the Sunday Special the following Sunday.

Novelty items on the no-limit side consist of $12,000 guaranteed Zoom, $14,000 guaranteed Speed-Down, $15,000 guaranteed Escalating Antes, and $18,000 guaranteed Win the Button.
