With the actual World Series of Poker in full swing, WSOP.com launched it’s own Online Championships to add to the Sunday Major schedules in both Nevada and New Jersey.

With the 2015 World Series of Poker in full swing as it entered it’s first weekend, the online poker world is also ramping up for a huge summer.

With close to $750,000 in guaranteed prize pools spread over 180 events in both New Jersey and Nevada, the WSOP.com Online Championships look like it could be the biggest, most inclusive online tournament series that these states have ever seen.

In addition to the huge prize pools and Online Championship’s rings that each winner will receive, the top five finishers in each event will win their way into a WSOP National Championship freeroll. The winner of each state’s freeroll will win a seat into the National Championship, at a value of $10,000.

Skip_2_My_Lou” has made some of his biggest scores in partypoker $50,000 Sunday Major events. He opened the year with a $5,000 podium finish in February and while it’s been a while since his last big score, it was clearly worth the wait.

He made the lone New Jersey five figure score of the day, outlasting a nearly 250 player field to take home his first Sunday Major title.

  9. BossSTIK – $424

sizzlinbetta” might be the definition of a “grinder”, as he’s earned close to $100,000, with the majority of those finishes being less than what he earned for his first Sunday Major title.

T1mB3y_B33F” also stole some headlines this weekend, earning two podium finishes to net himself close to a combined $5,000 Sunday Major haul.

“im_that_guy” went back to back, earning Sunday Major titles in two straight weekends. The first came seven days ago, earning a modest $3,500 score for taking down 888.com’s ‘Big Sunday’.

This win earned him a little heavier of a payday though, as he made just under five figures for his WSOP.com win, pushing his career earnings near the $25,000 mark.

The first New Jersey WSOP.com Online Championships winner is now stranger to Sunday Major success.

With close to $100,000 in career earnings, including a fourth place finish in the WSOP.com $35,000 Guaranteed event held earlier in the day, “Jermz” added to his lengthy resume with a $4,000 score.

NJ OPOY Contender Jesse “NoXcape” Elliott also made a deep run, bowing out in 6th place for just under a $1,000 score.

  5. hop0019 – $900
  6. Confluence – $800

The trend of the last few 888.com ‘Big Sunday’ events continued, as a more or less unknown player took down the title while the event failed to even sniff it’s guarantee.

“ThreeBetYou” won’t be too concerned with that overlay though, as he walked home with the lion’s share of the prize pool, while earning the biggest score of his online career.
