Took a break
I had a family vacation last week. Because of that, I didn't play a single hand of poker for over 8 days. I played a little each of the past 3 days and ran well, which I am happy about. I am playing only on pokerstars this month, as I hope to make platinum again. I had just over 60K VPPs going into this month, so if I get platinum every month from here on out, I will reach supernova in November. Given that the school year starts up in a few months, I might struggle to make platinum every month, but hopefully I can accumulate enough VPPs early to get to supernova soon.
Next year - Supernova elite or another quest?
The more I play, the more I realize that trying for supernova elite will be futile given I have a full time job. I can comfortably play 12-16 tables now, still with no use of AHKs, so it is feasible I can get to 24 tables, but I just don't think I will be able to, nor do I think I can get in the hours necessary.
I might have a quest to earn enough in FPPs in the first part of 2009, however, to buy pokerstars WSOP main event package. It costs 710K FPPs, and it is one of their best values in terms dollar value/FPP. I would need to earn just over 200K base points, which I think I could do, especially if I focus and play a lot in the first 2 weeks of 2009, as I might be able to earn 40K base points per week those two weeks, which would allow me to coast to the 200K by May.
