New Year Brings Plenty of New Poker Tournaments
New Jersey’s online poker sites started the New Year off right, with special tournament events for January.
Do you love poker? New Jersey’s online poker sites have a whole lotta action for you this month.
First up: PokerStars NJ’s Winter Series tournament event. The special series runs from January 18 to January 26, and includes 21 tournaments with $300,000 in total prize-pool guarantees.
- $60,000 guaranteed Winter Series Main Event on January 26
- Depositor Freeroll, with $8,000 in total prizes
- All-in Shootouts, awarding $8,000 worth of prizes
The depositor freeroll requires a simple $30 deposit in your PokerStars account to get an entry into the January 26 freeroll. The Top 20 finishers will win a $400 seat to the Winter Series Main Event. There will also be daily Spin & Go tournaments that could lead to Main Event tickets.
