Better Poker

A Thank You contest

The year is almost over and I'm on my way to reaching my goal. As of this post, I stand at 80,006 Vpp's and I still have 100 days left

At this point, I would like to thank all those that have encouraged me in accomplishing my goals by posting here in this thread or in my blogs and I would like to offer you a little contest which will have a total of $150 in prizes. This is not a PSO contest and in no way are they involved.

Why am I doing this?
As most of you know, I've had very good success this year with my style of play. This is a token of appreciation for following my success, helping me continue and persist towards my goal and being appreciative of all my postings.

So who's allowed to participate?
Anybody who has posted here in this thread and in my blogs, from January 1st to today, as of this post. There was 93 people (see attached list of participants).

What are the prizes?
There will be three prizes, 1st $75, 2nd $50 and 3rd $25, which will be deposited in your PokerStars, Full Tilt or PayPal account.

What do you have to do?
All you need to do, is guess the date at which I will reached Supernova, as simple as that.
You will need to post here in this thread the following:
Month, Day, Hour and minute (Just in case there's 2 identical guesses)
Only one guess and no editing
You can even guess that I still won't reach it, therefore write 2014 and if for a reason or another I don't, the prize pool will be given out equally to all those that guessed 2014.
You have till September 30th, 11:59pm EST.

Here are a few clues that might help your guesses:

- I have just finished week 37, therefore 265 days
- I've played 382,225 hands this year
- I have 100 days left
- I will be away on a cruise in Europe from the 26th of October to the 4th of November, so 10 days no poker
- I've been Platinum every month
- As for the rest, you're on your

Good Luck, now I need to get back to work
