The weather may be cooling down on the East Coast but the action is heating up on WSOP.com in New Jersey. During the month of October, WSOP NJ is offering over $100,000 in prize money as well as launching a new fall tradition.
Several new promotions are available for new and current players at WSOP, including the return of Sit & Go leader boards. Also, frequent players have a chance to earn extra cash in their accounts while racking up Action Player Points. Finally, the new Fall Poker Festival will award the first-ever WSOP.com champion’s ring.
Fall Poker Festival Offering $60,000 in Guarantees and Champion’s Ring
WSOP NJ will kick off their newest tournament series this month with the Fall Poker Festival. Starting October 12 and continuing through October 19, players will have the opportunity to compete for $60,000 in guaranteed prizes.
The eight event series will cover most variants of poker spread on the site with buy-ins as cheap as $10. The series kicks off on October 12 with a $200 buy-in NL Hold’em Re-Entry Event with a $20,000 guarantee.
The Main Event of the series on October 19 is a $200 buy-in NL Hold’em Event with Re-buys and a $25,000 guarantee. Also up for grabs is the first-ever WSOP.com Champion’s Ring. The site is hoping to establish a tradition with this event and draw a stellar field for their Main Event.
This champion’s ring could also be a precursor for things to come in the future for the site. WSOP officials have indicated a desire to possibly run bracelet or circuit ring events on WSOP.com, so a successful run during the Fall Poker Festival could help make that a reality in the future.
Play Along While Watching the WSOP on ESPN
Every Sunday through November 9, you can compete on WSOP NJ while watching your favorite players on ESPN’s World Series of Poker broadcasts. Every Sunday at 9 pm players can compete in a $10 NL Hold’em with re-buys event with a guaranteed prize pool of $2,500.
This turbo-structure event will feature five-minute blinds and starting stacks of 4,000 chips. Players get 4,000 for each re-buy and will receive 8,000 chips when they add-on after the re-buy period. The event will pay the top 10 percent of the field.
These events are a great way to become part of the WSOP experience or even build your bankroll, so you can take your own stab at the 2015 WSOP Main Event.
Earn Your Share in the October APP Dash
Frequent players on WSOP NJ will have a chance to earn extra cash while racking up Action Player Points (APPs). During October, the players earning the most APPs will earn their share of $5,000 in prize money. APPs are earned each time you play in cash games or tournaments on WSOP NJ.
The top 300 players each day of a qualifying week will be featured on WSOP NJ’s daily leaderboard. At the end of the week, the top 30 APP earners will receive cash directly into their player accounts. The more you play, the more APPs you can earn.
Sit & Go Leaderboards Return
Starting October 5, Sit & Go leaderboards return to WSOP NJ. Players of all bankroll levels can earn cash prizes based on their performance in Sit & Go tournaments on the site. This time, up to $7,500 in prizes are up for grabs.
The leader boards are split into three tiers and are as follows:
Low Limit ($5 and under) – $1,000 in weekly prizes

Earning points for this challenge is simple. Just finish in the top half of any qualifying Sit & Go tournament to earn points. Each prize pool will be split among the top 30 players on each week’s leaderboard. Please note that Heads-Up Sit & Go tournaments and Satellites do not award points in this promotion.
