It was an exciting weekend of poker action for fans to enjoy this past weekend, as the New Jersey Spring Championship and Michigan Spring Championship of Online Poker are both in full swing.
Two other players were able to collect victories over the previous weekend, and more winners will be crowned as the action continues until May 24th. Players will be competing for some huge cash prizes throughout the event, with over $3 million up for grabs. Two winners were crowned this past weekend, and you can catch up on the results below.
Drunk Spew Wins Event On Thursday
There was an excellent start to the weekend on Thursday for poker star ‘Drunk Spew’. The event was part of the PokerStars New Jersey Spring Championship, and attracted a field of 70 players to compete for the prizes on offer. However, the winner never seemed to be in question, as ‘Drunk Spew’ managed to walk away with $4,109 in total winnings from the event. That prize fund was made up of $1,790 in prize money for finishing top of the leaderboard, while he took home $2,319 in bounties from the event. Compared to the rest of the field, the bounty winnings far outweighed anything else that any player was able to take home.
‘thekidraf04’ finished back in second, as he took home returns of £2,155. Included in that prize return was $959 in bounty cash, which was the second-highest return of the day. Michael Yeager and ‘IllbILLYmAC’ finished in third and fourth, while ‘Cncly1314’ and ‘Wxg1989’ finished in the two places below. Dan Lup finished the event in seventh, and took home returns of $988, which was higher than the two players above him on the leaderboard. The final leaderboard was rounded off by ‘BLACKKOWBOYZ’ and ‘iFoldNOT’, who managed to finish the event in eighth and ninth.
JinxySkunk Claims Massive Win
There was a massive victory on Friday in the series, as the New Jersey SCOOP event was won by ‘JinxySkunk’. It was a massive victory for the poker star, as the four players on the final table all walked away with significant returns each. The winner was crowned after a heads-up deal was agreed, as ‘JinxySkunk’ walked away from the event with prize money of $3,131.43 for his efforts throughout the events. The deal in the closing moments was agreed with ‘TrashNinja00’, who needed to settle for second.
Regardless, he still claimed significant prize returns from the event, as he won $2,869.50 for his excellent performance throughout the event. The other two players that made up the final standings were Ryan Hagerty and MartinChatwn. Hagerty finished the higher of the two players, as he claimed third spot and returns of $1,890.44. Meanwhile, the latter of the players finished in fourth and still would have been appeased with prize money of $1,399.81 from the event. The final events of the series take place throughout Monday.
