      Was pretty disappointed with 2013s volume, only about 200k hands or so. After switching to Zoom over the last few months of the year, its gotten a lot easier to put in more hands, and looking at Supernova even at my current stake NL10 SH zoom, its not that hard, plenty of time to play and still work on my game.

      So, for a volume challenge, I am going to get Supernova this year. Even worst case scenario and I never move up, I believe I can do it. But will be pretty gutted if I don't manage to move up.

      $0.05/$0.10 975,000/year 2671/d
      $0.10/$0.25 800,000/year 2191/d
      $0.25/$0.50 450,000/year 1232/d
      $0.50/$1 275,000/year 753/d

      Today have played 700 hands and already 4BI below EV. Going to play hopefully 3k today.

      Accountability Bet:

      If I fail I will donate $100 to the SPCA.

      Closest Guess of these 8 guys for my 2014 volume gets $10 at end of year:
      Hashkan: 1,000,000
      killerslo: 850,000
      TinoLaan: 839,591
      Rihard4a: 743,324
      jawoftheox: 700,000
      Marcofurtardo: 650,000
      VaskataBuci: 455,345
      Tupeeh: 385,000

      Hey man,

      how you got these required hands numbers? From what I know, these numbers seem a bit off. Here is an image of what you should expect approximately:


      Good luck though!

      Hey acetbfish, I got the numbers from here: http://www.pokerstars.com/vip/supernova/ in the achieving supernova section.

      Would be pretty scummy of stars to be lying about the number of hands you gotta play, just to get people to put in more volume...I will monitor my VPP/100 is tomorrow and see what the result is.

      I played 2923 hands today, so if I maintain this pace (probably won't) will be on 1.06 million hands for the year. I will log all the guesses, and no more guesses after this post since it isn't the 1st here anymore.

      EDIT: Absolute douches over @ PokerStars. Checked my VPP for the day, and its 200 from 2924 hands. Which means that it would take 1.4 mil, not 950k like they say. Pretty shit of them to put false info up for something that takes a whole year of commitment. Not gonna give up though, looks like I'll just have to keep working on my game and will need to move up a few stakes too.

      it's just an average, you must understand that fishes/whales play a lot of more hands and increase the average of vpp/hand

      Hi man.
      First of all good luck with your goals!
      Second acetbfish is right. You wont be able to get SN with 975k hands, they will give you about 40k VPP.Even tho you better don't get upset since you'll move up throught limits all year and with good volume you'll get it for sure.

      Second hand, with AA I would fold river. Dont know if mine play is good, but I would think that AA is bad there. he got flush or 2+pairs or better to jam river.

      In that hand, I would check-raise flop and would want to go all in there.

      In hand 2 when the 3 pairs we beat TJ, so we're only losing to a backdoor flush or set. Its kind of sick how he changes his betsizing, but as played it'd still call river. He has enough Jx and bluffs imo.
