NJCOOP pays out over $1.4 million

2 Nov 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOOP) has completed its inaugural series paying out a record-breaking $1,405,276, the richest series since online poker became regulated in New Jersey. PokerStars, an Amaya brand, guaranteed $1.2 million in prize money across 43 events, which ran from 15-31 October, but that guarantee was smashed thanks to 1,273 unique players taking part.

"I really enjoyed playing and streaming NJCOOP," said Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker, who made two NJCOOP final tables. "Towards the end of the Series, I got to mix playing NJCOOP with checking out the inaugural PokerStars Festival New Jersey. With one live win already at Resorts, New Jersey has been very good to me!"

The PokerStars Festival New Jersey is currently taking place at Resorts Casino Hotel and is running until 6 November with a schedule featuring more than 50 gaming events. For more information visit the website.

NJCOOP highlights

NJCOOP's bumper payout, which surpassed the $1.3 million record set by NJSCOOP in May 2016, created some big winning moments.
  • The NJCOOP $500 Main Event concluded on Monday, 31 October. The event was won by 'ROU$EY' who beat a field of 425 players to take home $38,380.
  • Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker had a successful NJCOOP. The 2003 World Champion cashed in four events, which included second place in the Event #21: $350 Sunday Special SE for $15,942 (after chopping first and second place payouts) and third place in Event #33: $50+R PL Omaha [6-Max, Rebuy].
  • NJCOOP had four double winners: 'AvaGray', 'ROU$EY' and 'ShrimplyPibs' who are all New Jersey residents, and New Jersey visitor 'Ken Kratz' from Florida.

Player of the series leader board
The top 15 players across the series were awarded a share of $10,000's worth of tournament tickets. 'Ken Kratz' claimed the Player of the Series title in the top position, after making six final tables with two wins, taking the largest slice of the pie with $2,000 in tournament tickets.
