NJCOP Delivers Big On partypoker, Darren Elias Delivers On WSOP.com

partypoker/BorgataPoker.com's NJCOP was a big reason that this weekend boasted the biggest prize pools in the history of New Jersey online poker.

For the second week in a row partypoker/BorgataPoker.com’s NJCOP created some of the biggest prize pools ever seen in New Jersey, with over $350,000 in total Sunday Major guarantees.

The biggest weekend in New Jersey online poker history didn’t keep it’s place in the record books for very long, as partypoker’s New Jersey Championship of Online Poker again rolled out a massive Sunday Major schedule, guaranteeing close to $350,000 through six events.

That schedule was headlined by the biggest single guaranteed prize pool that the New Jersey sites have seen this year, a $150,000 guaranteed NJCOP Main Event that was one of the only NJCOP events to see a substantial overlay.

While the main focus may have been on the NJCOP schedule, WSOP.com and 888.com still ran their Sunday Major events, with two time World Poker Tour winner Darren Elias claiming the biggest non-NJCOP win of the weekend.
