An idea came to me over the weekend after studying the VIP point system offered at PokerStars. There is money to be made once a player achieves SuperNova status. $21K for the first million points, and $50k for each million following. What's more, the points you earn translate into buy-in tournaments around the world. That's a lot of money. The time commitment is in the first four or five months where accumulating points is difficult. But it can be done. It's just a little bit mindless and insane. Perfect for me. Anyway, I'm seriously considering embarking on this path. With PokerTracker I can keep track of who is playing at the tables and study their game. I can make this work if I want it bad enough. I see a bright future for poker and my place in it. I find it amazing that such a simple game can generate so much money. And there's money just begging to be made in poker. Shuffle up and Deal!
