Thomas Boekhoff attempts to turn $5 into $100,000

Friday, 31 July 2009

We’ve all heard how Chris Ferguson turned $1 into $20,000 but could someone turn $5 into $100,000 in a year? Well that's the exact challenge that has been thrown down to Thomas ‘Boku87’ Boekhoff by Poker Stars.

The German’s challenge began on 15th July and now two-weeks in he’s reaping the rewards for his incredible multi-table grinding. Largely playing sit n goes and the occasional MTT, Boku’s bankroll has just nudged above the $9,000 mark. He’s said to be playing up to 51 tables at a time and is averaging over 200 tournaments a day.

This isn’t the first time that Boku has attempted a bankroll related task. Last year he managed to turn $100 into $10,000 in just 15 days by exclusively playing low limit sit n goes.

After his excellent start it seems like a matter of when rather than if he’ll complete this challenge. We’ll keep you updated with any developments.
