Rohit “GodlikeRoy” Bhasin’s Crazy Day Of Online Grinding
Posted at 09:15 2012-11-08 by Matthew Pitt
Team PokerStars Online’s Rohit “GodlikeRoy” Bhasin has a reputation for being able to grind out thousands of hands every day, something that has helped him to achieve the coveted title of SuperNova Elite.
SuperNova Elite is the very top of the PokerStars VIP scheme and in order to achieve this status a player must generate at least 1,000,000 VPPs in a calendar year. This equates to around $220,000 worth of rake! But reaching SuperNova Elite is only part of the story because it also needs maintaining by generating at least 50,000 VPPs every month.
As SuperNova Elite can be worth upwards of $180,000 per year in rewards, losing that status can be very costly indeed, as Bhasin recently discovered. According to his personal blog, Bhasin was relaxing when suddenly it dawned on him that he had not generated his 50,000 monthly VPP total for October. He discovered this at 14:00 Sydney time. He also discovered that he needed to generate just shy of 12,000 VPP in the next 25 hours!
Bhasin logged onto PokerStars, sat down at the cash game tables and grinded between 18 and 21 tables non-stop for 13 hours! During that time he played over 14,000 hands and managed to profit by around $1,500 but that figure was boosted by the value of his FPPs which added another $1,500 on top!
Unsurprisingly Bhasin was delighted with his achievement and has stated he thinks he could put in that much volume every day! Check out his blog for the full story.
