The end of this month will mark a change for WSOP.com players in Nevada and New Jersey. Starting Jan. 31, poker players will be able to participate in “The BIG Deal” on the last Sunday of every month – a new tournament with a $500 buy-in.
In Nevada, there will be a $20,000 guaranteed prize pool to replace the $20,000 Sunday Guarantee and its $30,000 prize pool. In New Jersey, The BIG Deal will replace the $30,000 Sunday Guarantee.
The structure and buy-in will be different than the normal Sunday majors; players will start with $10,000 in tournament chips (double the number) and the blind levels will last 20 minutes (up five minutes). The $200 price tag from the Sunday Guarantee ($185 buy-in plus $15 entry fee) will be replaced by a $500 number ($467 buy-in and $33 entry fee). The rake on the new tournament will be smaller, though.
The event will begin at 3:00 PM in Nevada and at 4:00 PM in New Jersey. To help players get in on the cheap, $5 super satellites will run daily at 6:15 PM along with $50 weekly satellites with five guaranteed seats at 5:45 PM.
Last weekend also marked a big weekend for poker players in New Jersey with the wrap up of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Winter Poker Classic II. One-hundred players participated in the Main Event and “HelloFriend” took home the $12,266 first prize.
The biggest winner of the weekend was “OvertheTop” who secured $12,386 for the PartyPoker NJ/ BorgataPoker.com $50,000 guarantee.
Jacob “JakeP474” Perry had a huge weekend, himself, finishing third in the $50,00 guarantee and making three other final tables – placing seventh in the Daily $50K (for $596) and Daily $5K (for $243), before winning another $1,229 by finishing fourth in the Daily $10K.
At the same time, Keith “TimB3y_B33F” Donovan won the top prize of $9,391 in the WSOP.com/888Poker NJ Sunday $30,000 Guarantee.
