The PokerStars New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker (NJSCOOP) is returning to the Garden State in May, guaranteeing more than $1.2 million.
The series will feature 35 events, each split into a low and high buy-in event for a total of 70 tournaments.
NJSCOOP runs from May 6-22.
The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is one of the most popular poker tournament series in the online calendar.
SCOOP runs each tournament at a variety of buy-in levels, meaning that the events are not just restricted to high rollers. All levels of tournament run simultaneously.
Each event in the global SCOOP tournament series features a low, medium, and high buy-in event.
For example, a typical SCOOP event may have buy-ins of $22, $215, and $2,100 to choose from. However, even the lower buy-in events typically generate huge prize pools.
