Thanksgiving Present: Party in the USA Exclusive! partypoker Hosts $50k Guaranteed Online Tournament for New Jersey This Sunday

ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY--(Marketwired - Nov. 28, 2013) - During this first weekend of online poker in the Garden State, will host an eyebrow-raising $200 buy-in poker tournament with a $50,000 Guaranteed prizepool! The tournament starts at 7.30pm ET on Sunday, and players can either buy-in directly or qualify online in satellites that cost as little as 10 cents!

This will be the richest poker tournament ever held by a licensed online poker site in New Jersey.

"partypoker is posting the 50k guaranteed this weekend and we are sure you will not find better value anywhere else this weekend," said Poker Hall of Fame Legend Mike Sexton, who is also the founding father of Team partypoker. "It is hard to forecast how many players will take part - if it isn't very many the chances to win are going to be even better. We are boldly sticking our neck out, and saying to our players: Happy Thanksgiving!"

Amongst those expected to play are Team partypoker's most recent New Jersey recruits: Jamie Kerstetter from Monroe; Bobby Oboodi from Morris Plains; and Scott Baumstein from Atlantic City.

"After moving back from Mexico this will be my very first Sunday online session back home in New Jersey," said Kerstetter. "The $50k is likely to provide great value, and I am going to do my best to win!"

That's not all that is on offer, however, as qualifiers for January's WPT Borgata Winter Open are also in full flight and a $5,000 package is guaranteed. Bobby Oboodi, a two time big tournament winner at the Borgata is one of those looking for a package. "It's going to feel so great to try and qualify for my home event at home this weekend. It will feel kind of surreal!" Scott Baumstein is currently completing his move to New Jersey from NYC. "There's only one place to be this weekend and its New Jersey," said Scott.
