Stars VPP's

If you play at Stars and have aspirations of becomming a Supernova next year, I suggest emailing support to see if they will carry over your current VPP's to 2007. I know of one person who was successful in his request. The email went something like this:

"My name is ***** ***** and I play under the screen name *******. I'm considering moving all of my play to Stars to obtain Supernova status, but I don't want to wait until Jan 1 to start collecting the VPP's. I play about 15K hands per month and would be an excellent customer. Will you please consider rolling over my VPP's earned in November and December to 2007. Thank you for your consideration."

Tony G Destroys Ralph Perry

This happened a few months ago but I'm just seeing it for the first time today. It's by far the harshest berrating I've ever heard at a table.

EDIT: This guy actually transferred me $5 because he felt bad. I must say, that's a first!

Fortunately, my tourney game HAS actually been running well. I've made 3 final tables in my last 4 attempts, however, nothing higher than 6th.
