PokerStars NJ announced the first ever NJSCOOP will be taking place next month, offering 54 tournaments running from the 15th to the 29th of May.

The high and low Main Events will be a big draw for players. The high buy-in version will have $200,000 in prize money while the low end will have $30,000 in prize money. Players can buy-in to the Main Event for $50 for the low end while the high end tournament has a buy-in of $500. Each of the Main Event tournaments will take place over two days.

To take part for less cash, players have the option to qualify online for the Main Event as well as other tournaments at the PokerStars New Jersey website. Satellites begin at just $1, making the option to qualify affordable for every player.

Game variants of NJSCOOP events will include 8-Game, Stud, PLO Hi/Lo, Pot Limit Omaha and of course No Limit Hold’em. Players who take part in the NJSCOOP can expect to play alongside Team PokerStars Pros, making game play quite interesting.
