PartyPoker NJ Revamps Tournament Schedule

Partypoker recently celebrated their one-year anniversary in New Jersey. As part of that celebration, the site has revamped their tournament schedule, offering new events while streamlining their overall selection of events.

Partypoker stated that their recent updates have come as a result of consulting with customers both directly and through popular online poker forums. The new changes have resulted in weekly guarantees exceeding $200,000, along with the addition of new daily and weekly major tournaments.

New Daily Majors and Earlier Start Time for $10k Daily

Partypoker now offers 20 events as part of their Daily Majors series. Starting at 10:00 am each day, players can compete for a share of $25,000 in guaranteed prize money. Seven events each day feature a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000 or more. The Daily $10k features a $10,000 prize pool.

According to Partypoker, players have been demanding earlier start times for the $10k daily and they have listened. The Daily $10k will now run at 6:00 pm each day, allowing those with day jobs enough time to compete for the top prize in the Daily Majors.

New Majors Added and Weekly $50K Guaranteed Retained

Two new Majors have been added on Sunday to give players even more chances to win. Players have the opportunity each day at 7:00 pm to compete in the Super Bounty for a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000. On Sundays, this prize is doubled to $2,000, allowing for more prize money in addition to the coveted bounty money up for grabs.

The other new major added on Sunday is the Sunday Slow Grind. This $50 event kicks off at Noon each Sunday and has a prize pool of $1,500. Players start with loads of chips and have extra long levels to allow for more play.

Finally, the Sunday $50,000 has proven to be a big hit among players and Partypoker has chosen to retain that event. For just $200, players can compete for a guaranteed $50,000 in prize money. First place gets a minimum of $10,000, making it the “must play” event of the weekend.

New Payout Structures and Streamlined Tournaments

Partypoker has adjusted their tournament structures to meet the demands of their loyal customers. For those that play events of $20 and under, you will find that fields now pay 18-20% of players. This allows more players to receive a payday.

For those that prefer to play higher, events with buy-ins of $50 and up will notice fields paying out 13-15% of players. This allows for larger prizes for winners, making events more appealing for serious players looking to grow their bankroll.

Finally, Partypoker has revamped their schedule and cut out the clutter. This means that they have reduced the number of tournaments to allow for larger fields and bigger prize pools. Daily schedule of events now conclude at 2:00 am ET daily.

Partypoker Listens and Welcomes Additional Feedback

These new changes highlight Partypoker’s commitment to provide a world-class poker experience to their customers. Their willingness to work with players has allowed them to become the top site in New Jersey. Mike Sexton commented about the new changes:

We hope the community welcomes these changes. Feedback was particularly strong on the Daily $10k start time with the need for an earlier night as well as the payout structures. Though you cannot please all people all the time the poker room team hopes this new schedule has a bit of everything for players at all levels. The bottom line is there are eight daily major tournaments guaranteeing $20k and over $75k guaranteed on Sundays. We continue to invite feedback on this schedule.”
