If you are looking for an opportunity to win big this fall, then you won’t want to miss the next Garden State Super Series (GSSS). The series runs from October 11-25 and consists of $800,000 of guaranteed prize money. It is hosted as a joint effort between BorgataPoker.com and Partypoker NJ. There are currently still only a few companies licensed to run online poker tournaments in New Jersey, so you won’t want to miss this one.
The GSSS has a wide array of events to meet the needs of all the different players who decide to attend. With buy-ins from as low as $20 all the way up to $1,060, both high and low-limit players will be satisfied. Events will be played in a variety of different formats, such as no-limit hold’em, fixed-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, hi/low pot-limit Omaha, and seven-card stud. With all of the different events available there should be something for everybody. These events will give you a great chance to win big, and this year there are higher guarantees per event than ever before.
So What Are Some Of The Events Available?
As we have come to know from the past years, the GSSS highlights its main event, the GSSS #39 – NLH Main Event [Re-Entry]. This event will be on the final day of the tournament, October 25. For a $215 dollar buy-in you can participate in the biggest competition with a $150,000 guarantee. Use this chance to test your skills against some of the best players in New Jersey. If you come in near the top it will be well worth the effort.
Check out some of the other events that will be offered:
GSSS #2 – NLH (Sunday $50K Format) [Re-Entry]: $215 buy-in / 75,000 guarantee
GSSS #20 – NLH (Sunday $50K Format) [Re-Entry]: $215 buy-in / $100,000 guarantee

As you can see, different events are a good match for different types of players. If your limit for the event is $100, you can participate in a few different low-level buy-in events and still have fun and get a chance at winning some money. For people that are willing to risk more and join, let’s say, one of the high-roller events, then they have much better odds of winning. With fewer players participating in those type events you have a much better chance of victory, so it may be worth the risk. The question is this: do you want to spend a lot of money for a high chance at winning big or a little bit of money for a small chance of winning a small amount?
Most people tend to lean towards the latter. Ultimately the choice is up to you, but if you have the money you will be rewarded handsomely for participating in a high buy-in event. Golan Shaked, Director of Games at partypoker, says that “it is important to provide all types of players a fun poker experience in whichever event they play. The GSSS offers buy-ins from $20 to $1,060, so it is accessible to everyone.”
If you wish to participate in the event, you must be located in New Jersey. If you live just over the border, you can still join in but you will need to travel into New Jersey to compete in the events. Simply make an account at BorgataPoker.com or nj.partypoker.com to get started.
