PokerStars NJ Gives $300K Reasons To Stay Inside This Month

PokerStars NJCOOP Features Three Weeks Of Online Poker Action

June was a historically bad month for New Jersey online poker. May, on the other hand, was solid. The good May numbers stemmed from the successful Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) series on PokerStars NJ.

No surprise then that PokerStars NJ is going back to the well with another online series boasting big guarantees to run at the end of the month.

PokerStars Summer Series starts on July 23

The latest PokerStars NJ series is a 12-tournament affair running from July 23-30. The event is called the Summer Series and features a variety of different games.

Most are variants of no-limit hold’em, including a $1,000 High Roller tournament on July 25 at 7 p.m. ET. That tournament boasts a $35,000 guarantee. That event is the highest buy-in, but Summer Series buy-ins go as low as $50.

There are also a couple of Omaha tournaments as well. There is a five-card Omaha tournament to wrap up the action on July 30.

The real highlight of the series is a $400 buy-in Main Event with a $75,000 guarantee.

All told, there are $300,000 in guarantees up for grabs over the nine-day series. During NJSCOOP, PokerStars NJ managed to surpass the overall guarantee of $1.2 million with $1,448,707.10 in total prize pools. This guarantee is much more modest, so there should be minimal overlays.

Win your way into Summer Series Main Event via Spin & Go

If $400 is a little too steep for your online casino bankroll, there are other ways to earn a Main Event seat for the Summer Series.

From now until July 30, PokerStars NJ is offering Spin & Go tournaments with possible Main Event tickets up for grabs. Most winners in the $2.50 buy-in Spin & Gos will double their money. However, a little less than two percent of winners will get a $400 seat.

Month wraps with $5,000 freeroll

On Monday, July 31, there will be one more event associated with the Summer Series. This one does not even require a buy-in. Any player who takes part in an of the 12 Summer Series events earns a freeroll ticket for the Monday tournament. That event runs at 7:30 pm and features a $5,000 prize pool, entirely provided by PokerStars.
