The New Jersey version of the event will come a littlewhile after, kicking off on April 11 and running through April 27 with 48tournaments and a smaller prize pool at $1.2 million. NJSCOOP 2020, however, isan improvement on last year’s event when the prize pool stood at $1 million andthere were only 41 events.

PokerStars seems to be betting harder on Pennsylvaniaexpecting bigger interest in the Keystone State and focusing advertisingefforts there. New Jersey is still going to get its own fair share.

The events are likely to scoop up bigger interest this year due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak that has placed many states on lockdown and suspended most economic activity or relocated it to people’s homes.

Pennsylvania and New Jersey remain the two states in which PokerStars has been running extensive online tournaments. However, the company has recently signed a deal in Michigan, after Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed online poker into the law earlier last year.
