Should I go for Supernova Elite ?

So lately I've been trying to decide on whether or not to go for SNE this year.

A little about what SNE is for those who may not know....

PokerStars have a rakeback system which is based on points instead of direct rakeback, the more you play the higher your status becomes and the more points you earn.

There are six VIP levels you can attain, the higher being SNE, they are...

, SilverStar, GoldStar, PlatinumStar, Supernova and Supernova Elite.

Getting to SNE would be worth in excess of $110k which would be a pretty awesome achievement for me, the downside is of course is that really tough to attain one million VPPS in a year and seeing as I'd be starting the chase 2 months behind it would be even tougher, after all there are only a couple of hundred players out of the millions of players on pokerstars who managed to achieve this last year and at $100NL fullring maybe only a handful, it is after all around 3.5m hands at $100NL.

So thats the decision I've got to make, should I go for SNE?

More info on SNE can be found here


  1. Try to make 100k+ VPPs on March, if you can handle it, see if you can grind enough time until the end of the year to get SNE.

    My advice is to do the math and see where you can get the most money, while having a good life outside poker :)

  2. I agree with Coimbra. Only you can decide, of course. Most of my more profitable friends say it's easier to make the money at cash than it is to make it in SNE volume. But, most of them are live players ;)

  3. Yeah you guys are probably right, 1m vpps is a huge task as it would mean I would need to average 100k hands a month more. I think I can manage 250k hands a month without too much pressure, 350k is probably a little too much for me at present. A better goal might be to try and play 200-250k hands a month and still have time to work on my game where hopefully I'd beable to move upto $200nl and go for SNE next year where I's have more time and would be required to play fewer hands to achieve it.

  4. Roulette Spielen is a online gaming the you will extremely appreciate.

  5. I have been reading and looking for Should I go for Supernova Elite and is amazing and disturbing how many blogs related to generic viagra are in the web. But anyways, thanks for sharing your inputs, they are really interesting.
    Have a nice day
