Boylepoker Player Wins $135,000 Over 10 Days

Friday, March 13, 2009

DUBLIN, Ireland -- pro, Peter Murphy, is just over halfway through his Multiplier Challenge where he has 11 weeks from January 23 to turn $100 into $10,000 and is firing on all

However, no-one expected the dramatic twist in the tail when fellow player Adrian McCarthy was inspired by Murphy's challenge, deposited $100, followed Murphy's lead, and after just 10 days had accumulated $135,000.

First McCarthy won six $20 sit 'n' go tournaments in a row on the Jackpot tables at and collected $35,000. He then went on to win a seat in the $2.5 million guaranteed tournament at the site and came sixth in the tournament pocketing another $100,000.

McCarthy wrote to Murphy at saying, "I was inspired by your performance over the past few weeks and decided it was possible for me to do the same. I spent the past three weeks reading and studying up as much as I could. After depositing €100 I had good fortune increasing it to €300 in a few days though cash and $10 six-seaters. Since I was getting on so well in the six-seaters I decided to go to the $20 Jackpot games. I won the six in a row at the first attempt taking down $35k. Anyway thanks for the inspiration, it got me to study hard and I've reaped the rewards very quickly!"

A few days later he wrote at, "Murph that challenge of yours is looking lame now! I won a seat in the $2,500,000 tourney and came out with $100,000 in sixth place! It should be $100 to $100,000 in 10 days!!! Life is good."

Murphy meanwhile has had a tougher ascent through the ranks but spun his $100 investment up to €2,909.72.

He is confident he is on track to complete the Multiplier Challenge, saying, "I have four and half weeks left but I am off to Cheltenham for the races this week, so by the time I get back I will have less than four weeks left to get to the $10k mark.

"I might start to grind $.50-$1 cash for a while and when (IF) I get back to over $3k then I can move up and play $1-$2 and maybe a few decent tourneys here and there and hopefully I should get there."
