Overlays Dominate Sunday Majors in Nevada and New Jersey

The poker world is largely concentrated in the state of Nevada right now but that didn’t matter Sunday as both Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com had overlays in their Sunday Majors. The overlay trend wasn’t restricted to Nevada though as every Sunday Major in New Jersey also had an overlay. Across the five events on partypoker (NJ), WSOP.com (NJ & NV), Ultimate Poker (NJ & NV) there was $30,423 in overlays. The biggest score of the day went to “T1mB3y_B33F” who won the WSOP.com Online Championships Event #8 in New Jersey for $28,500.

The first recorded score for “PRINZOLAV” in Nevada was a big one. Coming out on top of the 101-player field earned the player $28,000. While overlays were the norm on Sunday the $530 buy-in rebuy and add-on event fell just short of the $100,000 guaranteed.
