Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) January 20, 2009
Boylepoker.com today launched the Multiplier Challenge where sponsored player Peter Murphy will attempt to turn a $100 bankroll at the online poker site into $10,000 over 11 weeks starting on Friday 23 January, 2009.
Murphy will have to use all his poker, game selection and money management skills to reach this ambitious target and poker fans can follow his every up and down as he grinds his way through the levels and a variety of games and writes about his experience in detail at Boylepokerblog.com.
"I'm really looking forward to it," said a confident Murphy. "I believe I am odds on to complete the challenge successfully but most people I've talked to think I am odds against -- I'm sure I can prove them wrong and I plan to share this intense experience in all its glory at Boylepokerblog.com."
Murphy began playing poker three years ago and has over €80,000 in live tournament cashes to date including seventh place at the Irish Poker Championship 2009, fifth place at the Irish Winter Festival 2008 and fourth place at the Boylepoker.com International Poker Open 2008.
He has also played profitably at every level online from $1/$2 to $10/$20 and will undertake the Multiplier Challenge under the username "murphymultiplier" where he will start at micro limits and progress though the levels playing cash games, single- and multi-table tournaments, heads-up, short-handed, hold'em and Omaha.
Paul Spillane, head of poker at Boylepoker.com, said, "It's every poker player's dream really to think they can spin such a modest amount into a very healthy bankroll. What's great about the game of poker is that it is can be done but will Peter have the discipline, skill and luck to do it? We'll have to wait and see but I, for one, am looking forward to reading all about it and wish him the best of luck."
