Andrew Li Becomes "Supernova Elite" In Less Than 60 DaysPublished on March 2nd, 2011 4:01 am EST
According to Pokerstars, Andrew "azntracker" Li has broken the record for being the fastest person to reach "Supernova Elite" status.
According to Li, he played a total of 50 days during the first two months of 2011 to break the record. The existing record had been held by George "Jorj95" Lind, who reached "Supernova Elite" status on March 18th, 2008. Li was able to easily best this mark, despite the fact that he took off nine days in January and February.
According to Li's blog (link below), he ended up playing a total of 14,183 SNGs en route to claiming "Supernova Elite" status. His average ROI in these SNGs was 0%. Sharkscope.com has Li as having played 83,387 SNGs during his time on Pokerstars for a total profit of $240,809 (average stake of $177).
Li fended off a couple of hard-charging challengers, most notably Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, to become the fastest ever player to reach "Supernova Elite" status on Pokerstars.
