2016 Refresh

The inaugural NJSCOOP saw 27 events with Low and High buy-ins that came with a little over $1 million in guaranteed prize pools. The $500 Main Event featured a small overlay as the 392 total entries failed to match what was need for the event’s $200,000 guarantee.

A player going by the screen name pwrdbysteam ended up winning the title and $38,380.

2017 NJSCOOP Schedule

Highlights of this year’s NJSCOOP schedule include Event #3, a Sunday Special $300 buy-in tournament with an $85,000 guarantee, and Event #18, a Sunday Special $350 tournament with a $65,000 guarantee.

Event #21 is a $300 4-Max event that comes with a $40,000 guarantee and the highest buy-in tournament on the schedule is the $1,000 High Roller 6-Max Event #24, featuring an $85,000 guarantee.
