COOPs cross midway point in PA, MI, NJ with over $2.9M awarded so far

September 20, 2021inPoker

PACOOP, MICOOP, NJCOOP coming Sept. 10-27

The three US Championship of Online Poker (COOP) series are each going strong, with players in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey having won more than $2.9 million in COOP events so far.

PokerStars is running separate COOP series on all three US sites — PokerStars Pennsylvania, PokerStars Michigan, and PokerStars New Jersey — from Sept. 10-27.

Click here for the full COOP schedules for PokerStars PA, PokerStars MI, and PokerStars NJ.

Each of the three COOP series is careening toward series-ending $300 buy-in, two-day Main Events starting this Sunday, September 26. On PokerStars PA the guaranteed prize pool is $200,000, on PokerStars MI the guarantee is $150,000, and on PokerStars NJ the guarantee is $100,000.

(Note: Each PokerStars US site is ring-fenced, meaning players are only competing against others within their own state.)

Each of the three sites is also running a Depositor Freeroll on Sunday, September 26 as well. Players who deposit at least $30 using the appropriate promo code — “PACOOP,” “MICOOP,” or “NJCOOP” — receive an entry into the freeroll. In each case, the top 50 finishers will win Main Event seats. In other words, on each site $15,000 in Main Event tickets are up for grabs.

There are also $3 Spin & Go’s on each site in which Main Event tickets are being awarded. Second Chance Freerolls are still running, too, giving players who bust shy of the cash in any COOP event a free chance to win COOP tourney tickets.

Here is a quick look at some highlights from PACOOP, MICOOP, and NJCOOP so far, followed by complete results from each series down below.

PACOOP awards over $1.27 million through 41 events

In Pennsylvania a total of 41 PACOOP events have completed, with tournaments attracting nearly 15,000 entries. That has meant a lot of big prize pools, with more than $1.27 million having been won so far.

Three PokerStars PA players have won two PACOOP events so far — “anachronismKB,” “fubadbeatbob,” and “TheBigSlick74.” TheBigSlick74’s two wins came in the same night, actually, coming back-to-back and ending within 15 minutes of each other.

On top of that, one of those wins by TheBigSlick74 came in a PACOOP Championship Trophy event. TheBigSlick74 joined “161joe161” as the first two recipients of the special trophy. There are five more trophy events on the remaining schedule.

Meanwhile one player, “superdonkeydave,” has already claimed three PACOOP titles!

We’re keeping our eye on PokerStars PA Ambassadors Mark “NaigoPA” Foresta, Keith “whoopsboom” Becker, and Jennifer Shahade as well. So far Foresta has a couple of final tables including a runner-up showing in the $500 High Roller. Meanwhile Becker and Shahade have each also made the final 2-3 tables of events so far.

Nearly $1 million won through 40 MICOOP events

Up in Michigan players have similarly come out in big numbers on PokerStars MI for the MICOOP so far. The first 40 MICOOP events attracted more than 11,000 entries, with prize pools totaling about $980,000 to this point.

There have been no less than four different two-time winners in MICOOP so far, too — “248donkey,” “BishPlz94,” “ChipzNCheeze,” and “grandma1967.”

There, too, trophies are being won, with “Pillzebub” and “TWOsl0w4u” having claimed the first two MICOOP Championship Trophies of the seven being awarded.

New Jersey players win over $655K in 35 NJCOOP events

In New Jersey there have been 35 NJCOOP events so far featuring more than 5,800 entries. Players have won just over $655,000 already in the series with eight more days to go.

There are multiple-title winners to report from New Jersey as well. “kyleorto86,” “Stonniepokes,” and “Tagubhai” have each won two events so far. And “cncly1314” and “MisAnntrh0pe” have each won three. Both cncly1314 and MisAnntrh0pe won tournaments on back-to-back nights, in fact.

Meanwhile kyleorto86 and Stonniepokes are two of three PokerStars NJ players to win trophies. “monkeyman067” picked up some hardware as well for winning a NJCOOP Championship Trophy event.
