The big poker tourneys at PokerStars NJ

If you’re looking to play in some of the biggest online tourneys in New Jersey in 2017, you need to be playing in October.

The NJCOOP wraps up with the main event that will guarantee $200,000 in prizes. Here are the three biggest tourneys on the schedule:

  • Oct. 1 at 5 pm ET: $250 NL Hold’em Sunday Special ($85,000 guarantee)
  • Oct. 10 at 7 pm ET:  $1,000 NL Hold’em High Roller ($80,000 guarantee)
  • Oct. 15 at 5 pm ET: $500 NL Hold’em Main Event ($200,000 guarantee)

Those tourneys aren’t the only ones to play, of course. All 46 events guarantee at least $10,000, making them all worthwhile plays.

If Omaha is your game there is a $500 tourney guaranteeing $30k on Oct. 9. There are also five other Omaha events on the schedule.

If the fast-fold variant Zoom is more your style, there’s even a $15k event for that on Oct. 14.
