PokerStars has unveiled the schedule for the highly anticipated New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOOP) this October which will have $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money up for grabs.
NJCOOP will run from October 15 to 31 and will feature 43 events with entry fees starting at $15 and rising to $1000.
The series is being called “the richest online series ever held in New Jersey” as NJCOOP takes the title back from The Garden State Super Series (run by partypoker and Borgata) who comparatively is only offering $1.1million in guarantees from October 9 to 23.
NJCOOP is designed to appeal to players of all abilities and levels so a wide range of tournaments have been created for all bankroll sizes.
Daily online qualifiers are now running; satellite tournaments through to larger tournaments start from just $1. The schedule also includes a $1000 NL Hold’em High Roller event on Tuesday, October 10 that has a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000.
The Main Event will be a 2-day $500 NL event with a $200,000 guarantee that runs over October 30 and 31—clashing nicely with the start of the WSOP Main Event.
In addition, from September 26 to October 30 NJCOOP Spin & Go’s will be running from as little as $2.50— meaning players get a the chance to win their way to the Main Event.
“I’m so excited that PokerStars is bringing the Championship of Online Poker to New Jersey” said Team PokerStars Pro Jason Somerville.
“It’s great that players in the region can experience playing in this prestigious festival and the buzz that comes with chasing big prize money and major tournament titles” he continued to say. “I’m looking forward to playing and streaming NJCOOP on Twitch in my hunt to win a title in its debut year.”

Also during NJCOOP players will have the chance of winning one of twenty PokerStars Festival New Jersey 2016 Main Event seats worth $1,100.
