It had been nearly a month since either Nevada or New Jersey had a five figure winner but that stretch is no more, as the WSOP.com Online Championships boasted two such cases in Nevada along with one of the bigger prizepools in the history of the state this weekend.

While New Jersey didn’t have winners that big, some of the bigger names came out to play and earned sizable scores, including partypoker’s Jamie Kerstetter who notched a four-way chop in New Jersey’s biggest Sunday Major event. The unfortunate trend of smaller prizepools in New Jersey did continue for another week, however, but it isn’t all that surprising with plenty of players out of state during the World Series of Poker.

When it was all said and done, the top four players in New Jersey’s biggest Sunday Major decided to split it up four ways, eventually working out a deal that saw “Billson” take home the highest payout and the title.

While “Billson” might claim victory, the biggest news in this event was partypoker’s Jamie Kerstetter notching a podium finish in her final Sunday Major before heading to Las Vegas for the WSOP later this week.

There was no chop in the other partypoker Sunday Major, as the $10,000 guaranteed event drew 119 players. While the number was lower than average, “Thatgood45″ won’t be complaining about a smaller-than-average payday, as he took home just under $2,200 for his victory, pushing his career earnings near the $85,000 mark.

OWNEDLOLUMAD“, who was one of the biggest winners during the most recent NJCOP series, was among those who made this final table, where he finished fifth.

The win wasn’t just the biggest in New Jersey this week, but also the biggest of “PeoplesChamp”‘s career as he made just under $9,500 for the win.

While the earlier WSOP.com Sunday Major didn’t boast many big names, the biggest event thus far of the WSOP.com Online Championships in New Jersey was a who’s who of players.

“Billson” made another deep run, almost notching a podium finish to follow up his partypoker win, while “schaf4206” added to his resume with a second place finish.

Those results were all good results but “COLDWARKID” stole the show and the headlines, earning the biggest result of his career with a win worth just shy of $9,000.

By far the biggest winner in either state this weekend was “MikeyMillz”, who outlasted a 115 player field to take down the WSOP.com Online Championships $50,000 Guaranteed event for $19,790. Most of the players at this final table put up their biggest career online results, which is most likely attributable to so many out-of-state and out-of-country players joining the Nevada regulars during WSOP season.
