One of PokerStars’ elite players 'Boku87' has had some impressive achievements in his poker career. He was one of PokerStars’ Supernova Elite in 2007, successfully completing a challenge to turn $100 into $10,000 in just 14 days but this latest test sees him attempt to turn five dollars into one hundred thousand dollars at PokerStars.
Boku87’s quest is to turn $5 into a massive $100,000 in a year. This is a real test of his poker skills and his bankroll management abilities. As all of you who have made deposits at poker sites know $5 does not allow much play. Boku87 will be playing this challenge at PokerStars, staring out at the 10 ¢ sit n go’s and 2¢/4¢ fixed limit cash games. Once he manages to build his bankroll a little he can start playing 25 ¢ sit n go’s before moving up to the $1.10 sit n go’s once his bankroll allows him to. ‘Boku87’ will be playing for about 8 hours every day to try and reach the magic $100,000 mark as quickly as possible.
You can follow Boku87’s efforts to turn five dollars into One Hundred Thousand Dollars at PokerStars through his blog which will be updated twice a week noting any exciting hands or bad beats that Boku87 may encounter. This will be one of the biggest accomplishments in online poker should he pull it off.

Maybe not $100,000 but set yourself a goal, be disciplined and see if you too can rise to the challenge. Head over to PokerStars today to see how Boku87 is getting on with one of the toughest challenges in online poker.
