Believe it or not but already a player has reached the Supernova status on PokerStars! The race to reach 100,000 VPP was between "AWice" and "MouldyOnions". The two registered for almost every single high-stakes hyper turbo sit-and-go when the clock ticked over to 2013, and it was a even race from start to finish.
After 39 hours and 25 minutes, poker pro Alex "AWice" Wice had earned 100,001.88 VPP (less than 6k points ahead of MouldyOnions) and the race was over. PokerStars awarded Wice with a bonus of 100,000 Frequest Player Points to spend in the PokerStars VIP store. He will also be commemorated in a special 2013 deck of commemorative playing cards featuring PokerStars' top players.
It will be interesting to see if he and "MouldyOnions" will continue racing against each other towards the Supernova Elite status (1,000,000 VPP). If you're the first Supernova Elite of 2013, you will get to pick a 24-hour period of your choice where you earn double the normal VPPs and FPPs.
