Jason “TiltedHard” Lawhun Wins Third NJSCOOP Title
The PokerStars NJSCOOP is in full swing in New Jersey, and one man is outperforming everyone. Many poker players go their entire careers without winning a single tournament, but Jason “Tiltedhard” Lawhun is not just any poker player. He is one of the game’s elite.
Lawhun has won not one, not two, but three NJCOOP events at this series alone. He is undoubtedly one of the favorites to shine brightly in the Main Event in play now. The New Jersey grinder has almost $2.16 million in online poker winnings, $620,000 of that sum coming from his play at PokerStars alone.
NJSCOOP 36-L: $30 NLHE Super Tuesday Mini Final Table Results
Lawhun’s first NJSCOOP title of the series came in the $30 NLHE Super Tuesday Mini event. A field of 295 entrants created an $8,053.50 prize pool that the top 39 finishers shared. A min-cash weighed in at $66.34, but nobody at the final table took home less than $145.27. Two of those finalists banked four-figure sums for their $30 investment.
Lawhun and “Cnotorious21” were the pair of players who netted those four-figure prizes. Cnotorious21 got their hands on the $1,144.32 runner-up prize, while Lawhun scooped $1,536.83.

NJSCOOP Event #38-H: $200 NLHE Final Table Results
NJSCOOP victory number two came a couple of days later in the $200 NLHE event. The prizes in this tournament were juicier thanks to 67 players buying in for $200. Only ten players won a slice of the $15,000 prize pool.
The tournament was played on seven-handed tables, which suited the talented Lawhun. The win was far from assured even when Lawhun navigated his way to the final table because his six opponents reached the same stage on merit.
“samsonjosNJ” was the first of the finalists to fall. His seventh-place exit came with a $675 prize. The awesomely named Benji “OtB_RedHeron” Felson crashed out in sixth for $825, leaving everyone else with four-figure scores.
“Batzz88” and Ryan “hagz2riches” Hagerty busted in fifth and fourth. Hagerty was one of the favorites for glory because he has more than $2.2 million in online poker tournament winnings. It was not meant to be, and Hagerty bowed out earlier than expected.
Heads-up was set when Michael “mikeyeager” Yeager fell by the wayside in third. Lawhun and Daniel “R@zzleDazzle” Dizeno fought one-on-one, and the former came out on top. Second place yielded a $2,925 prize leaving Lawhun to win NJSCOOP title number two and $4,387.50.
|1||Jason “TiltedHard” Lawhun||$4,387.50|
|2||Daniel “R@zzleDazzle” Dizeno||$2,925.00|
|3||Michael “mikeyeager” Yeager||$2,100.00|
|4||Ryan “hagz2richwz” Hagerty||$1,425.00|
|6||Benji “OtB_RedHeron” Felson||$825.00|
Lawhun Completes Series Hattrick
Lawhun completed his incredible hattrick over the week by winning another short-handed event. The NJSCOOP 48-H: NLHE 6-Max Rebuy cost 75 to enter and saw only 34 players buy in. Each table was six-handed, but the final table only paid four spots due to the low turnout.
Benji “OtB_RedHeron” Felson was the first player to cash. His demise in fourth place resulted in $818.32 making its way to his PokerStars NJ account.
Naichang “cncly1314” Chen collected $1,344.39 for his third-place finish. Lawhun and Xinang “wxg1989” Wang locked horns heads-up for the lion’s share of the prize pool. Wang could not stop Lawhun’s march to a third NJSCOOP title, and he had to make do with a $2,208.68 consolation prize. Lawhun claimed his third title and the tournament’s $3,628.61 top prize.
|1||Jason “TiltedHard” Lawhun||$3,628.61|
|2||Xingang “wxg1989” Wang||$2,208.68|
|3||Naichang “cncly1314” Chen||$1,344.39|
