Supernova Elite is the ultimate Pokerstars VIP status and it can achieved on a yearly basis. I have constantly been achieving Supernova status in the last years and I have set one of my primary goals for 2010 to become one of the few Supernova Elites at Pokerstars. By becoming a SNE I will enjoy the outstanding rewards that come with the top VIP status and make more money cashing out bigger milestone bonuses. The task won’t be easy but I will surely try my best. Let’s take a closer look at the Pokerstars Supernova Elite awards in detail and how many hours I need to play online poker at Pokerstars.

In order to earn the rank of a Supernova Elite VIP, I must accumulate 1,000,000 VIP Player Points (VPP’s) during 2010. Earning the first 100K VPP’s means I keep my Supernova status until February 2011 and win all Stellar Rewards.
|Yearly VPP:||Stellar Reward:|
By the time I reach 100K VPP’s, I will also be hitting the first milestone bonus and will eventually win all of the VPP milestones, making about $30,000 just from the bonuses.
- $1000 at 100,000 VPP
- $3,400 at 200,000 VPP
- $3,600 at 300,000 VPP
- $3,800 at 400,000 VPP
- $4,000 at 500,000 VPP
- $4,400 at 600,000 VPP
- $4,600 at 700,000 VPP
- $5,000 at 800,000 VPP
According to FPPPro, earning 1 million VPP’s and the Supernova Elite title is valued at $102,700 to $135,800 depending on the starting VIP level. Since I will be starting as a Supernova and I will be converting FPP’s to $4,000 bonuses, the total extra money my effort will bring is $113,000 according to the Pokerstars VIP calculator.
The duration of the task is expected to be less than 12 months. If I am to achieve Supernova Elite status on 31st of December, I need to make 2740 VPP’s per day. The more I make per day, the sooner I will become a SNE. To keep track of my progress I am including a VPP meter in my gambling blog’s front page.
