Some people are born for the road. A guy known as "scossett" on PokerStars is one of those people.
Just one year ago, he gave up a career in real estate and set out on a journey. He packed his car, drove from Ontario to Colorado. He went skiiing for a while then drove to Vegas. Then he drove to Florida. He eventually ended up at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Along the way, he played on PokerStars and racked up Frequent Player Points and VIP Player Points by the hundreds of thousands.
"By the end of of the trip," he said, "I had earned the three million points."
Three million points--good for a PokerStars VIP Club Porsche Cayenne.
It took him nine months of playing $114, $225, $335 9-player turbo SNGs, 12 tables at a time. Now, at 25 years old, he is a PokerStars Supernova elite. Already, he is more than halfway toward earning enough points to buy another car. It's a lifestyle that well-suits his wanderlust (it helps that his parents are 100% behind his decision and in his words are "great and supportive"). This summer, he's moving out to Vegas to live with a bunch of folks he met at the PCA.
As for his car, he says, "It has almost no mileage on it. I try and do lots of travelling, and when I'm at home, it's not like I need a car to go to the office."
