Though we are just two weeks out from the new year, there have already been many big wins in New Jersey. With only three states allowing regulated online poker play, there is currently a monopoly on the online poker scene. New Jersey is arguably doing the best in online in gaming revenue. Because of this, sites such as partypoker NJ, borgatapoker.com, WSOP.com NJ, and 888poker NJ are looking to get players excited right from the start by running multiple tournaments throughout the first weeks.
The biggest win came during the partypoker NJ/borgatapoker.com $50,000 guarantee event. During the event, 352 different players competed, with Eric Patrick winning first place to take home $12,686. The second place prize went to a New Jersey player with the screen name of “breadcrumb,” who received $8990.
