Five Days Left To Play In Online Championships

The Online Championships in New Jersey wrap up next week, leaving five days to get in on the action.

There are still 14 events remaining that you can enter; check out the entire schedule here.

Four of the remaining tournaments guarantee prize pools of $5,000 or more, including:

  • $100 buy-in with re-entry, 1 add-on, $5K guaranteed on June 25 at 7:30 p.m.
  • $500 buy-in high roller with re-entry, $25K guaranteed on June 28 at 3:30 p.m.
  • $200 buy-in with re-entry, $12,500 guaranteed on June 28 at 7:30 p.m.
  • $100 buy-in turbo deep-stack with re-entry, $5,000 guaranteed on June 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Interestingly, one player actually won back-to-back tournaments in the series.

The player with the ID “weweweasel” won both events 62 and 63, for a combined $2,200. One event was pot-limit Omaha, while the other was no-limit hold’em. It was his 23rd multi-table tournament victory, according to

There is also an online bracelet event starting at this year, but you can only play in it if you are in Nevada at the time. It’s not open to players in New Jersey, unless they are physically in Nevada. The buy-in is $1,000.

So, if you want to play, you would need to hop on a plane soon. If you’re going for the World Series of Poker main event, anyway, then you can go online to have another chance at a bracelet. The online component of the event starts at noon Vegas time on July 2. Action resumes at noon on July 4 for the live final table at the Rio.
