PartyPoker NJ is set to hold an online poker tournament with a six-figure guaranteed prize pool for the second time in New Jersey.
PartyPoker is trying to build on recent momentum in the regulated New Jersey market. Earlier this month, Party became the first regulated operator in the state to guarantee $100,000. Sunday March 30th, the online poker room will match that guarantee.
The last time PartyPoker NJ hosted its biggest Sunday tournament with the $100K prize pool — double its usual guarantee — a huge field was drawn. In all, 786 players entered, creating a prize pool of more than $145K.
The tournament will remain a $200 buy-in, with $20,000 guaranteed to first place. Satellites are available for as little as $5.
The tournament comes roughly a month before the recently announced New Jersey Championship of Online Poker in April, featuring $600,000 in guaranteed prize pools.
