The NJSCOOP is an annual event on PokerStars NJ that has been running since 2016. This year, however, there are more tournaments and more opportunities for players to win. PokerStars MI just recently kicked off its first-ever MISCOOP which also takes place in May while the PA SCOOP is already running for the second time on PokerStars PA.

The NJSCOOP provides players with three different buy-ins for each scheduled event – Low, Medium, and High. All 55 events on the schedule add up to 165 distinct tournaments running for 17 days.

Buy-ins for NJSCOOP events are considerably set from $5 and $10 up to a couple of $500 events. The majority of events are no limit hold’em but there are several Omaha events to look forward to with both no-limit Omaha hi-lo and pot-limit Omaha represented.

Tournaments feature different structures, table sizes, and stack depth including progressive knockout bounty events. There is also a heads-up event that will play out on three different days in which players will participate in three different tiers of the tournament.

Tournament Highlights include several multiple events.

  • Event #2-H — $200 NLHE 8-Max, Progressive KO, Bigstack, $20K guaranteed. (May 8)

PokerStars NJ Aims to Improve Tournament Series

NJSCOOP features more events than ever before and with bigger prizes up for grabs. Looking at the previous tournament, it is easy to understand why PokerStars NJ is improving its offers and tournament events.

The PokerStars NJ Winter Series which took place in January featured 40 tournaments with $500,000 guaranteed. Players crossed the mark with wins of over $640,000.

The PokerStars NJ Bounty Builder Series ran through February and March featuring 58 tournaments with $650,000 in guaranteed wins. Ultimately, players won over $700,000 in the series.

NJSCOOP features 165 tournaments with $1.2 million in guaranteed wins making it bigger than the previous series both in the number of tournaments and in the prizes awarded.
