Earlier this month, partypoker US kicked off the long-awaited WPT online poker “Players Choice Series,” featuring eight tournaments, and it’s just what New Jersey players asked for. The tournaments will run through the end of the month, playing across three platforms partypoker, BetMGM Poker, and Borgata Poker. All registered players in New Jersey can join in the excitement.
Borgata Poker Ambassador Michael “Gags30” Gagliano had this to say; “I’m excited about this series since the players got to choose each event. It’s a unique mix that all sorts of players will enjoy. Some events aren’t on the usual weekly schedule, but some are staples, just dressed up for the series. It should be a great tournament and I’m looking forward to it!”

The Action Continues with the WPT Online Poker Open Main Event
In November, the World Poker Tour announced its first U.S.-based WPT online poker Main Tour event, the $3,500 WPT Online Poker Open Main Event. This action-packed WPT online poker series is set for Sunday, December 27, running through Wednesday, December 30. The final event will carry a cool $1 million guarantee.
The WPT Online Poker Open Main Event will play on the partypoker US Network for players in New Jersey. The network includes Partypoker, Borgata poker, and BetMGM.
The record-setting $1 million guarantee shows just how serious the World Poker Tour and partypoker are about making this one an online poker tournament worth remembering.
“The WPT Online Poker Open brings the most esteemed and coveted prize in online poker to New Jersey and the partypoker Network,” WPT CEO Adam Pliska said. “the World Poker Tour continues to pivot toward online play, with another milestone for regulated online poker in the United States.”
In fact, the World Poker Tour has turned into a robust series of online poker offerings to the entire partypoker player pool nationwide, including the enthusiastic online poker players that comprise the New Jersey pool. Despite the fact that drawing the needed entries to meet the $1 million guarantee won’t be easy, the WPT online poker series has generously announced satellite events for as little as $5.
