Action gets underway in NJSCOOP on Saturday

PokerStars NJ will be running the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker (NJSCOOP) from April 11-27. The event guarantees players $1.2 million across the 96-event series.

That’s an increase over the $1 million from 2019 and shows the popularity of online poker for real money right now as players return online while live casinos are closed. NJSCOOP run across two buy-in tiers – high and low. It comes about a month earlier than last year’s series, which ran May 4-20.

The $300 High Main Event will feature a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. The $50 Low Main Event has a $30,000 guarantee.

The vast majority of the schedule features No Limit Hold’em. But there are also some mixed games, Omaha, and Seven Card Stud tournaments.

There are other promotions and events planned as well. A $9,000 guaranteed Main Event Depositor Freeroll will run April 26, awarding 30 seats to the $300 High Main Event. Also look for numerous daily $1,000 Second Chance All-In Shootout Freerolls. These are available for players eliminated from any NJSCOOP event before they cash. 

Players may also enjoy NJSCOOP Special Edition $3 Spin and Go’s. These begin running from March 31 to April 26 and award Main Event tickets. Here’s the complete schedule of events:
