Partypoker announced they will hold the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker in April while the World Poker Tour hosts their World Championship event at the Borgata.

A total of $600,000 is guaranteed for the 15-event schedule, highlighted by the $200 Main Event with a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool and the winner will walk with at least $50,000.

“It’s so exciting to have the partypoker WPT World Championship coming to Atlantic City and to have the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker coinciding with it,” said partypoker pro Jamie Kerstetter. “New Jersey really is the place to play big online and offline events in April and is a trailblazer for poker in the United States.”

The NJCOP will run from April 19 – April 27 while the WPT World Championship is scheduled for April 21 – 26. The kickoff event is a $50,000 Freeroll and will award each player at the final table entry to the entire schedule of NJCOP events.

One of poker’s best ambassador’s, Mike Sexton, and long-time partypoker pro said, “If you love poker then you need to be in New Jersey come April 19. The online poker action in New Jersey has been red hot since day one and the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker will be the ultimate test for pros and amateurs alike.”

“We believe it is best to be bold in the market,” Sexton continued. “We recently smashed the guarantee during out $100K major and NJCOP is going to take it to a new level guaranteeing double that in the form of $200,000 on Sunday April 27 at 5 pm ET, with $50,000 to the winner.”

The entire series will run $2,000 of entrance fees but satellites will begin running on the NJ site as early as Monday, March 17. The schedule encourages players traveling to the Borgata for the WPT event to arrive a couple days early and start times are convenient for players that bust from WPT event to play online.
