You knew it was coming!! PokerStars' COOP events are among the richest individual series in all of online poker. The 2016 SCOOP is just around the corner (kicks off May 8). PokerStars did not want to deny New Jersey residents a shot at playing their own version of SCOOP. Alas, welcome to NJCOOP, which is only open to NJ-based players. The NJSCOOP will be a 15-day spring festival of poker. The first-ever NJSCOOP will have a $1.1 million guarantee. Overall, 54 total tournaments will be available in 27 different events with two tiers of buy-ins to cater to players of various bankroll sizes.
The global PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) is one of the must-play poker events of the year. It's awesome that it's coming to New Jersey so that players in the region can experience the exciting tournament structures and the thrill that comes with chasing a major tournament title and big prize money. I can't wait to play in the first NJSCOOP and I plan to stream most of my play live on Twitch. I would love to win a title in its debut year.
The actual schedule will be released shorty. In the meantime, check out the NJSCOOP home page for more details including Player of the Series prizes.
