partypoker U.S Network Online Series in New Jersey Will Run Till June 7
The latest partypoker US Network Online Series is now underway in New Jersey. The online poker festival is currently taking at partypoker US, BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker. The week-long series features a total of 20 events, and will conclude on June 7.
Players can take part in the festival for as low as $5, all the way up to $320. The poker festival is filled with No-Limit Holdem‘s, with a couple of PLO events also sprinkled in.
It will culminate in the $320 buy-in Main Event which takes place on June 7, and carries a $75,000 guarantee.
Apart from the Main Event, the $10 buy-in Phased $25,000-guaranteed NLH event also offers great value for players, with eight starting flights running throughout the festival. If players are unable to make it during the starting flights, they are still permitted to directly buy into Day 2, but they will have to shell out $535 for the entry fee. The event will play down to a winner on June 7.
Other key events on the schedule include a $215 buy-in $5,000 GTD Freezeout on June 4, a $20,000 guaranteed NLH event which has a buy-in of $215 on June 5, and a $320 buy-in, $15,000 GTD Black Chip Bounty NLH on June 6.
In early May, a similar online series took place in NJ, which attracted a total of 5,039 entrants. The festival, which featured 21 events, gave away $352,417 in combined prize money. The $400 buy-in, $100K GTD Main Event was ultimately taken down by “TheKing411” after outclassing 269 other players to claim $21,233 in top prize. It was followed by an Online Mini Series which ran for six days, featuring small buy-in events.
Online Poker Continues To Surge
Online poker has continued to enjoy significant boost all over the world since the coronavirus lockdown began in mid-March. Several live events have been moved online as part of measures to curb the virus.
Back in April, partypoker US was also forced to drop its Spring Poker Open live event which was initially scheduled to take place at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The operator then decided to move the poker event online for NJ players. The series became an eight-day online affair, with guarantees of more than $400,000. It was the first online festival hosted by the partypoker US network in two years.
