What a Surprise, Another Crazy Bet from Boku87.

What a Surprise, Another Crazy Bet from Boku87.

Friday, 14 August 2009

Boku87 gained notoriety on the Two Plus Two forums – and even rumours that PokerStars may sign him as a pro – when he successfully won a prop bet in which he laid 1-3 odds that he would turn $100 into $10,000 in just two weeks.

He successfully did so, 50-tabling SnGs until he reached the required total despite a one-day breakeven stretch of 1,500 tournaments. That’s right – one day; 1,500 tournaments.

Now he has made another prop bet so insane that even Scottyy, the PokerStars staff resident at the Two Plus Two poker forums, has monitored and moderated the challenge personally. In this, the Boku87 Challenge #2, he aims to turn $5 to $100,000 in 12 months beginning with just $5 and no FPPs.

Personally, we think they’re mad to bet against him considering he made $9,900 in two weeks earlier this year. Although obviously that isn’t something you can sustain for a year, he’ll have no problem going mental on the $0.10 MTTSnGs and $0.02/$0.04 Limit Games until he has a decent bankroll for microstakes and $1.25 SnGs. From there, he’s home free.

If you want to watch Boku87’s insane multitabling skills as he attempts to make $99,995 net profit in 12 months, search for him at PokerStars.com – just click a random table, he’s probably there.
