Take it you know that your Supernova status only lasts until end of Feb ?

I made the same mistake sacrificing win rate for VPP's to try and achieve Supernova before the end of 09, but from what I can see it was a bit of a waste of time.

Hi m8, no Badbeat jackpot at stars. Even at Party it wouldn't have been one as it has to be quad 8's or above. As if quad 6's beaten isn't a badbeat lol. Glad for you you weren't on the receiving end of this one as, by reading your posts, it would have summed up your year quite nicely ;-). Same for me for the running bad part btw. Good holidays and better 2010 pokerwise.

Thanks My anonymous - I did know although I also think it may have been bit of waste of time also.

One positive point is it is going to be 7500 instead of 100000 per month to retain status ongoing and you can miss 1 month.

ty Sacha gl also.
