First Supernova lights PokerStars sky

That bright light in the sky is the first PokerStars player to reach the Supernova level of the PokerStars VIP Club. In less than two weeks, one dedicated PokerStars player accumulated 100,000 VIP Player Points and became to the first to achieve the elite status.

Who is that player? You may already know him. He's Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, a professional online gamer who has dedicated his recent life to poker.

In the final hours before he reached Supernova status, ElkY put in a session that lasted for more than 24 hours. Right now, he's on pace to be able to buy a Porsche with his Frequent Player Points.

After getting a few hours sleep, he told me, "I think the Porsche is a reasonable goal by the end of the year, but there are so many awesome things in the program such as WSOP buy ins and LCD screens."

For those of you traveling to Europe for the EPT, you'll see ElkY playing in some events in 2006.

So, ElkY is the first Supernova VIP. The only question now is..who will be next?
