To celebrate the launch of PokerStars in the state of New Jersey, Resorts Hotel & Casino will be hosting a special day of live events this weekend. On May 14th, the casino will see Team PokerStars members such as Chris Moneymaker, Jason Somerville and Barry Greenstein coming together at the casino for Q&A sessions, VIP Club Live Party and more. An interesting event on the schedule will see players sitting down at the poker tables but competing in an online poker tournament.
Players of PokerStars NJ who have SilverStar+ VIP status can purchase tickets in the VIP Store with StarsCoin. Every player at the online poker room had an opportunity to win a ticket or VIP package via the Run It Up: Resorts with VIP Club Live Freeroll which took place on the 1st of May.
When the day of events kicks off this weekend, Somerville will be playing host, with a breakfast to begin the day. After breakfast, sit alongside the pros as the online event is played at the poker tables via a laptop or mobile device. During the tournament, Somerville will be streaming game play on RunItUp Twitch channel. This will allow fans to watch when they cannot attend the day of events.
Once the tournament is narrowed down to the final nine players, the event will pause and a table will be set up to finish the event. The final table will be completed in Battleship Style. After the tournament concludes, the Q&A will begin. Players will get to ask pros about their game play, learning more about the world of poker.
After the Q&A, players and pros will be heading to the Landshark Bar & Grill at Resorts Casino to enjoy food, games and entertainment. An open bar is also included. Players who did not earn a ticket online can purchase one on-site for just $10. Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards Autism Speaks.
