See you in AC on May 14th!

PokerStars NJ has been live for almost a month now and they are already busy launching their first of many sponsored events. They are hoping that poker enthusiasts from all over the North East will flock to Atlantic City for the weekend of May 14 to partake in the festivities inside the Atlantic Ballroom at Resorts Casino which include an online event, special Q&A meet-and-greets, and a swanky PokerStars party with lots of free booze and grub.

 

Multiple ways to enter the Run it Up: Resorts Rumble... online or in real life. On May 1, Resorts is hosting a VIP Club Freeroll at 5pm Jersey time. They will be giving away a pair of tickets to the top 50 finishers and a special VIP packages to the top 5. To buy a ticket online, use Stars Coin. All proceeds will go toward Autism Speaks charity.

 

According to PokerStars press release... "Players who wish to attend this event can purchase a ticket in the PokerStars VIP store or win tickets in advance in a Run It Up: Resorts with VIP Club Live Freeroll on May 1. Those players who wish to buy tickets on the day will be able to do so for $10, which will be donated to Autism Speaks. The donation will get you a wristband to attend the daytime activities (including a light breakfast) and the VIP Club Live party in the evening."

Jason Somerville, PokerStars Pro and host of Run it Up

I'm incredibly excited to host our first one-day Run it Up festival on the east coast with two great partners in PokerStars and Resorts. It's been so much fun playing and streaming on PokerStars New Jersey this month and I can't wait to hang out with all of our awesome Run it Up fans in person. It'll totally be worth putting on pants.

Okay, here's where I get lazy and simply cut and paste key elements of the press blast...

  • The day will kick off with a breakfast “Meet & Greet” session featuring Team PokerStars members Jason Somerville, Vanessa Selbst, Barry Greenstein, Jen Shahade, Chris Moneymaker and Liv Boeree, and will be followed by the company's first east coast ‘Run It Up' Event hosted by Somerville, who has emerged as the face of the new online poker player and has taken online poker into the world of e-sport and social media on twitch.tv.
  • PokerStars Run It Up Resorts Rumble's schedule features a $30 buy-in no-limit hold'em event on PokerStarsNJ.com, which is only for those on-site at Resorts, and also a New Jersey-wide $10 buy-in tournament for those who want to celebrate all across the state on PokerStarsNJ.com. Somerville plays under the name “JCarver” and hosts the most popular poker livestream on Twitch, Run It Up, which routinely sees more than 10,000 simultaneous viewers tune in to watch him play poker on PokerStars, with those figures doubling and even quadrupling during certain events.
  • Somerville will be streaming live on Twitch throughout the weekend and participate in Q&A sessions with his fellow Team Pros. After a full day of poker, event attendees will be welcome to party the night away at the PokerStars VIP Club Party. This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate PokerStars' March launch and interact with brand executives and celebrity poker players. After some online and “onlive” poker action at Resorts' Atlantic Ballroom, the VIP Club Live party will be hosted at the iconic LandShark Bar & Grille Restaurant on Atlantic City's boardwalk.
