Poker pro Daniel Negreanu has vowed to keep up with the younger players by pumping up the volume with his online poker play.  His goal is to reach Supernova status.

He wrote on his blog a few days back:

“The best No Limit Hold’em players in the world today are mostly young. It’s just a fact and if you look at tournament results over the past few years, it’s trending younger and younger. Why? The younger players are using more advanced tools to break down the game, discussing hands with friends and on forums, and most importantly are putting in more volume than the older generation… One of my goals this year is to accumulate over 55,000 VPPs on PokerStars,” said Negreanu, who plays as “KidPoker” on the site. “I got 55,000 last year, my highest total ever, and I plan on getting to 60,000 this year, and possibly even reaching SuperNova status. One of the best ways to do it, I found, was to play the $5,600 buy-in heads-up No Limit Hold’em Turbo sit and gos.”

AintLuck.com says Negreanu is well on his way to reaching his goal as he already has racked up over 16,500 VPP’s, largely in part to playing 30 of those heads-up sit and gos, winning at a 70% clip. He also mentions wanting to work on practicing multi-table $5-$10 heads up cash games.
