George Lind, one of PokerStars´ newest members, is really the king when it comes to accumulating VIP points at PokerStars. Just listen to this. In just one month's time he earned 500,000 vip points back in 2007. The next year (2008), he reached the Supernova Elite level in less than 3 months and also became the first player ever to accumulate more than 3 million points in a year. This year, he's the first person to reach the Supernova Elite level once again! According what he writes in his blog, he's aiming to accumulate 4 million vip points this year!
As you probably can imagine, it's not a walk in the park to accumulate as many points as George Lind. Just check out his stats for this year so far.
