A boosted guarantee on WSOP.com didn’t mean overlay on the Sunday Majors.

After partypoker opened up the 2015 New Jersey online poker calendar with the second edition of their Garden State Super Series, WSOP.com responded by upping the guarantee on their big Sunday tournament on both their New Jersey and Nevada sites over the last few weeks.

The combination of the Mini Fest of Poker series that runs on WSOP.com throughout the month of February and the increase in their Sunday Major guarantee should make for a big month – with one player already taking full advantage of the bigger prizepools in claiming two Sunday Major titles in a single day.
