New Jersey online poker is about to get an adrenalin injection with the announcement last Friday of the Garden State Super Series poker tournament which will kick off on the 7th September. Nj.partypoker.com and borgatapoker.com released a draft schedule of the two week long tournament, timing it so as not to interfere with the live tournament of the Borgata Poker Open.
With a three tiered buy in, a diversified schedule and a guaranteed $1 million in prize money this will be the most ambitious event of New Jersey since regulations were torn down and online gaming made legal in the state. Hopefully this will be the shot in the arm the industry is looking for to get the numbers up where the stats say it should be.
The GSSS will have twenty different events broken up into three different buy in levels from as little as $5 up to $1000. The variation of buy in is to assist players who would like to play and enjoy the fun, but have restricted finances, as well as those who have a more serious take on the tournaments.
