If you remember back to the first ever New Jersey Championship of Online Poker, then you probably are fairly excited to see what the second running of the new tournament series will look like. The preliminary schedule for the NJCOP II has officially been released by a representative from partypoker on the Two Plus Two forums. The general idea for putting the “preliminary” schedule out, is simply so that the site can get feedback from players and fans on pretty much everything relating to the action. The site will look to get feedback on the game types, the tournament structures and also the buy-in levels for each of the different events. The excitement behind this series is starting to pick up, and we are just over a month away from when the action will start.
The second running of the NJCOP is going to run from April 16th to April 26th and is going to feature 32 different events that have an impressive $1 million in guaranteed prize pools handed out. While there are a ton of different events, one of the most interesting would have to be the two different “Player’s Choice” events. One of the two of these will start off the NJCOP II, and while both events cost $100 to buy-in, they also feature a $20k guaranteed prize pool with each. Now, as for how the events work, it’s just as you’d think. The players are truly going to get to choose the type of tournament. The initial selection will be narrowed down through an in-forum poll, which players can nominate certain tournament aspects.
A few things that players will be able to include in their nominations will be things such as No Limit Hold’em, Fixed Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, Pot Limit Omaha H/L and Fixed Limit 7-Card Stud. That’s just the type of game, as they will also get to choose from not only nine and ten-handed events, but also six-max and heads-up tournaments. Lastly, comes the tournament variations to choose from. The unlimited rebuys with add-on may be the most likely choice for the players, but you also get to choose between single rebuy and one add-on, or single rebuy as a second chance, a bounty event, ante-up event or a standard freezeout tournament.
It’s going to be fun just like playing situs slot online Indonesia to see which direction the players choose to go with the many different tournament options, but the top three nominated choices in each category will then make their way to an email poll that all partypoker New Jersey players will receive. The nomination round is in the bag, so if you’re a player then there’s a good chance that you’re getting the email pretty soon here.
Now, what makes this even more interesting is that the players can actually make this as crazy as they want. Say they want to vote for an eight-handed table event, then feel free to nominate it. Each table can be no more than 10 players, though, but the partypoker rep on the Two Plus Two forum wants the players to get as creative as possible in the third category (type of event). With all of the different options and as flexible as the players can be with their choices, it’s going to be fun to see what they can come up with.
As for the always exciting Main Event of any series, the event for the NJCOP II is going to be held on the final day of the action, April 26th and features a $200 buy-in. As for the guaranteed prize pool, it will be a $150k guarantee, which should draw in quite a few players. The current schedule looks to feature two events every weekday at 6pm and 7pm EST, and Saturdays will have events running at 3pm, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm. Sundays will be the biggest days, as five tournaments will run with the same starting times as Saturday plus an 8pm event.
The bulk of the events are No Limit Hold’em and a few other games are mixed in here and there. Even though they’re mostly NLHE, the variations include things like six-max, heads-up, re-buy and add-on, deep stack and bounty tournaments. The buy-ins for the tournaments will run anywhere from $50 to $1,000.
