More than $450k guaranteed during Garden State Super Series

Borgata Poker Makes Garden State Super Series A Little More Super

Borgata GSSS

Borgata has released the fall schedule for its flagship, twice-annual New Jersey online poker festival.

The Garden State Super Series Fall Edition runs from Oct. 14-21, featuring 24 events and more than $450,000 in guaranteed prize pools. Both of those numbers are up substantially from last year’s figures. Registration is open to all NJ players competing across the Borgata, playMGM and partypoker platforms.

WSOP NJ (Online Circuit) and PokerStars (NJCOOP) are each running their own major festivals this season, too.

Highlights of GSSS schedule

Two dozen events are lined up for the eight-day series, though four of those are satellites. A pair of $0.25 qualifiers, for instance, award seats into the largest Sunday tournaments each weekend.

Buy-ins for the 20 primary events run between $35 and $1,060, with two events posted at that upper extreme. One of those is a purple chip bounty that awards $500 for each knockout. There are a total of three bounty tournaments on the schedule, in fact, along with a couple rebuy/add-on events.

All non-satellite events carry guaranteed prize pools of at least $5,000, with the total approaching a half million dollars across the series.

The GSSS Main Event is the biggest, its $100,000 guarantee and $320 buy-in matching the vitals from the spring series. A $1k High Roller also runs on that closing Sunday with a $50,000 guarantee, the second largest of the week.

Those two premier events are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., respectively, on Oct. 21.

Full GSSS Fall Edition schedule

As a whole, the GSSS schedule demonstrates a bit of ambition from the Borgata Poker network.

Last year’s fall series, which wasn’t especially successful, featured just 14 events and $375k in guarantees. This year’s schedule takes incremental steps forward in both columns, though the prize money remains far off the $1 million debut in 2014. The GSSS is currently the smallest of the major online poker series in NJ.

Here’s the full list of events for the fall edition:
