Online poker players residing in or visiting New Jersey are gearing up for the fourth edition of the Garden State Super Series, an action-packed festival that begins on Sunday, February 28 and will pay out more than $1 million in guaranteed prize money.
Hosted by BorgataPoker and Partypoker NJ, GSSS IV features 62 events at a wide range of buy-ins that are certain to fit within the budgets of players at all stake levels. The exciting online poker tournament action will run for 15 consecutive days, from February 28 – March 13.
Buy-in for as Low as $20
Entry fees start at only $20 for events such as the $10,000 GTD NLHE Rebuy, $5,000 GTD PLO 6-Max Rebuy, and $5,000 GTD NLHE Rebuy. The next buy-in level is $55 – of which there are more than two dozen events – followed by a couple tournaments that require an outlay of $75 to be seated.
Continuing up the stakes ladder, New Jersey online poker players can choose between 19 events at a $109 entry fee, more than half a dozen at the $215 buy-in level, and three more priced at $535. Those latter three events, which all allow re-entries, are the Mega Tuesday 500 NLHE $20,000 GTD, $50,000 GTD NLHE High Roller 6-Max, and the $20,000 GTD NLHE.
Headlining the GSSS IV is the Main Event on March 13 at 5:00 p.m. with a guaranteed prize pool of $150,000. The priciest buy-in ($1,060) on the docket kicks off one hour later, the $75,000 GTD NLHE High Roller. Re-entries are permitted in both of those tournaments also. In fact, 47 of the 62 scheduled events allow busted players to re-enter.
Satellites Start at $1
Players who want to play in the GSSS IV but would rather win a seat for much less via satellite events can do so at both Partypoker NJ and BorgataPoker. The satellites begin at just $1. The series doesn’t start until next Sunday so there is plenty of time to play a few satellites before the first hand of the Garden State Super Series IV is dealt at 4:00 p.m. on February 28.
GSSS IV offers 19 more events and $200,000 more in guaranteed prize money than its predecessor, GSSS III, that took place last October. The Main Event of GSSS III recorded 764 entrants, resulting in a prize pool of just below $153,000. It’s a good bet that the GSSS IV Main Event will surpass that amount.
Those located in New Jersey who have yet to play at Borgata Poker or Partypoker NJ should know that a first-time deposit is good for a 100% up to $600 bonus at Borgata and 100% up to $1,000 at Partypoker. Remember, tourists are also welcome to deposit and play. Being of legal age and within the borders of New Jersey are the only requirements!
