Happy October, everyone. While poker players in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey plan their Halloween costumes for trick-or-treating, the PokerStars sites will be providing some treats early with new installments of Pennsyl-MANIA, the Michigan Classic, and the New Jersey Classic.

The tournaments each begin at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 24 at PokerStars PA, PokerStars MI, and PokerStars NJ, with the guaranteed prize pools adding up to a cool $700,000 across all three tournaments. Each tournament will be structured like the COOP Main Events and other big events on the sites as a two-day event ending Monday, October 25.

Remember, only players in each of the three states — Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey — can play at PokerStars, with each playing only against opponents in their respective states.

The events come on the heels of the recently completed COOP series on all three sites during which players won a combined $5.27 million.

In all three cases the tournaments will feature $300 buy-ins. The guarantees are different depending on the state:

  • Pennsyl-MANIA on PokerStars PA — $350,000 guaranteed prize pool
  • Michigan Classic on PokerStars MI – $250,000 guaranteed prize pool
  • New Jersey Classic on PokerStars NJ — $100,000 guaranteed prize pool

In addition, on all three sites satellites start today (October 12) with buy-ins as low as $15. Also keep an eye out for $3 Spin & Go’s that will start awarding tickets into the big event as well.

On top of that, each PokerStars US site will be hosting a Depositor’s Freeroll as well in which players can win up to $15,000 in tickets. There is also a $300 depositor match offer awarding tickets into the big event.
