BetMGM Announces Baseball-Themed NJ Poker Summer Classic Series Lineup

BetMGM recently released its upcoming Summer Classic Series of online poker tournaments. The competitions will be held in New Jersey between July 27 to July 30.

The baseball-themed series will feature 13 events and a total prize fund of more than $120,000. The NJ online poker tournament provides at least three daily tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $20 to $320.

The Garden State Series has Proven to be a Success in New Jersey Poker

The yearly tournament event is a fun mini-series that adds to the summer excitement. BetMGM NJ poker players have to be located in the jurisdiction of New Jersey in order to participate. In addition, athletes from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan will be permitted to participate in the series. The player pools, however, are not merged.

Every month, each state conducts its own web series. All three marketplaces are restricted to their specific regions, ensuring that participants only compete with others in their state. The guaranteed awards may change between states. Players in New Jersey can enter the events through either Partypoker NJ or Borgata Poker NJ. All three sites share the player pool.

Grand Slam Tournament is the Major Event

The Grand Slam Event is the primary competition in the series. On July 30, New Jersey will host the $215 buy-in tournament. The tournament has guaranteed prize money of $30,000.

In addition to the Grand Slam, BetMGM will host Progressive Knockout tournaments along with one Pot-Limit Ohama tournament. The title of each tournament has a baseball motif.
