PokerStars NJSCOOP to Begin May 4 for New Jersey Players

PokerStars NJSCOOP to Begin May 4 for New Jersey Players

Just after PokerStars announced its schedule and massive $75 million in guarantees for the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), it also had news for the New Jersey market. The small but powerful little slice of the United States will have its NJSCOOP in May with more than $1 million in total prize pool guarantees.

The larger SCOOP for the dot-com market will run May 12-27 with 67 unique events, though that translates into 201 individual tournaments due to the low, medium, and high buy-in levels for each.

Of course, the NJSCOOP is smaller, but it will still offer a variety of buy-ins with a total of 82 tournaments over the course of two weeks. And it all begins on May 4 for those residing in or visiting New Jersey.

Series Highlights

There will be a total of 82 tournaments in NJSCOOP, consisting of 41 unique events, each with a low buy-in and high buy-in version. The lowest buy-in will be $5, and the highest will be $1,000. And the cumulative guarantees will exceed $1 million.

The 2019 series is admittedly smaller than the 2018 NJSCOOP, as last year’s series guaranteed more than $1.3 million over a total of 80 tournaments. But with some events exceeding their guarantees, the final tally of payouts totaled more than $1.5 million.

The upcoming NJSCOOP will run May 4-20, complete with a $50 buy-in Main Event with $40K guaranteed and a $500 buy-in with $130K guaranteed.
