The first Michigan Spring Championship of Online Poker (MISCOOP) will run alongside the New Jersey event over the same days.

The Pennsylvania Spring Championship of Online Poker (PASCOOP) is live now and it exceeded its original $280,000 total guaranteed prize pools for its first weekend and awarded $350,000 in prizes, according to a news release. The championship wraps up May 3, right before the New Jersey and Michigan events begin.

The New Jersey championship will award a guaranteed $1.2 million across more than 100 events, according to a news release. The series will provide several tournaments throughout and buy-in levels for all bankrolls. That gives players of all levels a chance to be champion in New Jersey.

The series will be highlighted by a two-day Main Event, with a $300 buy-in starting May 23.
