“NoXcape” Continues Run, Big Names Dominate Sunday Major Action

The last two weekends have seen a slight hangover from the partypoker NJCOP series, as many of the bigger Sunday Majors have failed to hit their guarantees.

The last two weekends have seen a slight hangover from the partypoker NJCOP series, as many of the bigger Sunday Majors have failed to hit their guarantees.

There has been a prevailing trend on the New Jersey sites since both the partypoker NJCOP and WSOP.com Spring Poker Series ended two weeks ago. After those series helped create back-to-back historical weekends, the bigger Sunday Major events have now fallen well short of their guarantees over the last two weekends.

For the second week running, both main site’s $10,000 events were the only ones to beat their guarantees, with close to that much left as an overlay in the bigger buy-in $200 events.

That didn’t stop some of the biggest names in online poker from coming out to play though, with “NoXcape” breaking through for a win after notching two WSOP.com final tables last weekend and another win for NJ OPOY Contender Jason “JayRiv” Rivkin.

  9. callingdead – $1,350

The opening Sunday Major event was the only one that didn’t boast a “notable” final table field, as nearly every player at the final table earned the biggest score of their online careers in this $50,000 guaranteed event.

Past results didn’t matter for “BINKed-It” though, as he notched a $10,000 score, making him just one of two five-figure weekend winners.

  9. jim8888 – $481

While the overlays over the last two weeks show that there may be a hangover from the NJCOP series, there is no such hangover from “OWNEDLOLUMAD“, as he followed up his impressive NJCOP run to notch a decent $1,200 score with a fourth place finish.

But, the headlines were stolen by “PompYouUp77“, who notched his second Sunday Major title of the year after winning 888.com’s ‘Big Sunday’ in late February.

WSOP.com’s biggest Sunday Major final table was a who’s who of New Jersey online poker, with the likes of “brownmagic“, who has close to $90,000 in career online earnings, Michael Gagliano who plays under the handle “itWasThatOr0″, who boasts well over $200,000 in online earnings and “schaf4206“, who is hoping to get back into the NJ OPOY top 20 after falling off this past week.

But, for all those big names, two other’s were the last ones standing with both trying to win their second Sunday Major titles of the year, as “SetMining” outlasted “jetsfan14” for the title and a $11,000 score

  8. Leahcim – $320
  9. mnabrams – $230

It was a battle of NJ OPOY Contenders in the smaller WSOP.com Sunday Major, with Jason “JayRiv” Rivkin not only besting Kevin “sofcknsick” Campbell but also the rest of the field for the win.

There was almost a Sunday major double though, as “sps81087” notched a podium finish in this event before finishing as a runner up in 888.com’s ‘Big Sunday’. Those two results earned him just under $3,000.

Jessie “NoXcape” Elliott has been on a tear of late, almost winning Sunday Major titles in back-to-back weeks, after taking down WSOP.com’s $40,000 event during Master’s weekend and finishing in 2nd in that event last weekend.

Well, two out of three ain’t bad, as the online regular earned another title, this time outlasting a smaller than usual field in 888.com’s lone Sunday Major.

Later this week, BLUFF.com will will be bringing you another player feature as we profile contenders for both the New Jersey 2015 Player of the Year titles.
