NJCOP ANNOUNCEMENT – DRAFT SCHEDULE - FEEDBACK REQUESTED

partypoker.com & borgatapoker.com are excited to announce the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker! NJCOP consists of 10 events running from April 19th to 27th. The Championship kicks off with a $50,000 Freeroll on April 19th and continues with another 9 events – one every night – with guarantees ranging from $15,000 to $200,000. It culminates with a huge $200,000 Guaranteed Main Event where we’re guaranteeing $50,000 to first place. You'll also notice Event #7 is a Player's Choice Event. We would like the player community to chose the format of the event, and we welcome your suggestions. We will be posting the possible options in the coming days - so stay tuned!





The purpose of this announcement is to gauge feedback from you, the community, on the draft schedule for the series - whether you like the events, buy-ins, format, structure, etc. So… What do think? Please post a reply to this post and we will be monitoring it leading up to the eventual announcement in the coming weeks.

Thanks in advance everyone,
Party_Rep

Do not replace the 10k and 50k. That is ridiculous. People will be drawn to this and look for other tourneys to play. They will hit the guarantees easily.

This. The traffic that will be drawn to these tournaments will undoubtedly spill over to the usual scheduled tournaments. Keep the daily 10k and Sunday 50k. The guarantees won't just hit.. They'll crush.

Re: NJCOP ANNOUNCEMENT – DRAFT SCHEDULE - FEEDBACK REQUESTED

First of all, you should be commended for looking for feedback before posting a final version to the client, kudos to you. Unfortunately, that's about where the compliments end for me. You guys guaranteed 500 players last week for your flagship weekly $200 tourney and got almost 800 players. Now you are hosting your flagship series and you are keeping the buyin the same and guaranteeing 1000 players? That is super weak and you know it. Make the main event a $530 or at least a $320 and put a minimum of 300k on it. There is no shot you will miss it. So many people will be in NJ anyway for the Spring Open and WPT 15k so if you market it enough and advertise properly, you will crush it. You can't keep it the same buyin as your regular tourney, there is nothing special about it. Run a ton of satellites, steps, etc and you will make it easily.

Secondly, whats w/ the boring schedule? No PLO, no turbos, no rebuys, no shootouts, no HU? I mean use some creativity, take some chances for christ's sake. You guys are the market leader in traffic in NJ, there is a huge market, people want to play some fun good structured events, give us what we want. Its an absolute joke that your Sunday schedule has literally NOTHING exciting to play besides the $200 at 5pm. Like another post said, you realize we like to multi-table? You realize that the more tables we play the more rake you generate? Its completely mind numbing that you refuse to enhance your sunday schedule around the $200. Its so painfully obvious that people would love to play some 50 freezeouts or a nice 109 at like 2pm or even earlier. How hard is it offer these tourneys? Just put some lame guarantee on them so you won't lose money and you can gauge interest. I just don't understand what your tournament team does every day? Do you guys even read the feedback thread? It just makes no sense at all.

I hate to sound contentious but you are Party Poker!! You have been around forever, you are the market leader in NJ, we shouldn't have to tell you these things. This all just seems so simple to me, I would love to hear an argument on why it isn't. Again, you are the market leader in traffic, why aren't you leveraging this at a time when you know people are logged in and looking to fire off $$?

Finally, add a high roller to the schedule or at least compliment the daily main events w/ some "2nd chance" tourneys. Make them half the buyin and you don't even have to put guarantees on them. People will play them. trust me we are starving for more options as it is.
