PokerStars PA Summer Series Awards Over $1.1 Million Over 38 Events

PokerStars PA Summer Series Awards Over $1.1 Million Over 38 Events

The PokerStars PA Summer Series concluded on Sunday. Like other tournament series hosted on what is still the only online poker site up and running in Pennsylvania, it was a success.

Prize pools for the 38 events ultimately totaled $1,175,463.85. That amount was well clear of the $757,000 in total guarantees.

Big turnouts throughout, Main Event prize pool $242K

All told there were 19,492 total entries over the 11-day series, including 13,638 uniques.

Only one event during the entire series had an overlay. The $100 buy-in Sunday Special SE during the first weekend had over a thousand entries. But it needed about 50 more to hit its guarantee, and so had a $4,436.20 overlay.

Meanwhile turnouts were consistently large for nearly all of the events. About a third of the tournaments on the schedule ended up with prize pools more than twice the size of the guarantees.

The $200 Main Event had a $150,000 guarantee, and with 1,303 total entries the prize pool ballooned to $242,358.

The tournament ended with a three-way deal. “ComecomecomeTD” eventually won, taking a first-place prize of $30,146.23, while both runner-up “rancidpuil” and third-place finisher “Lachoy14” took away more than $27K.

PokerStars New Jersey Summer Series also ends on high note

The PokerStars NJ Summer Series also concluded on Sunday, a nearly identical series featuring 40 events and guarantees that added up to $500,000.

In the end only four events on the schedule failed to reach their guarantees, each having small overlays. On the whole, prize pools for all events added up to more than $640,000.

The PokerStars NJ version of the Summer Series Main Event featured a bigger buy-in of $300. Ultimately the tournament drew 348 total entries to create a $97,440 prize pool, comfortably besting the $75K guarantee.

Summer Series likely delivers June revenue boost for PokerStars PA

The successful Summer Series should help PokerStars PA put up another healthy revenue number in June.

April saw the site top the $5.3 million mark, its biggest month since launching last November. May was also big, with the revenue total of about $4.6 million the second-largest monthly total recorded by the site.

Online poker in Pennsylvania (and elsewhere) has seen a traffic boost since mid-March when the coronavirus forced all of the state’s casinos to shutter their doors.

As of today, all but one of the 12 PA casinos have now reopened. However, none of the casinos’ poker rooms are in operation as of yet. Casinos will follow recommendations from the CDC and the PA Department of Health before reintroducing live poker.
