Earlier this year online poker website Boyle Poker.com pro Peter Murphy embarked on his Multiplier Challenge – an attempt to turn a starting bankroll of $100 into $10 000 in 11 weeks or less playing online poker. Whilst there were those who opined that the project was perhaps too ambitious, Boyle announced the successful conclusion of the attempt this week.

Confounding the sceptics, Murphy required only nine weeks to reach the $10 000 target, and he added the cherry on the top by not only completing his challenge 2 weeks early, but also winning a further $2 000 in the $250 000 guaranteed prize pool event over the weekend, bringing total winnings over the nine week period to $12 172 and change.
 
Another BoylePoker regular, Adrian McCarthy managed to outshine even Murphy's success – he turned $100 into $135 000 in just 10 days, taking down the $20 buy-in Sit n Go Jackpot for $35 000 and following this with winnings of $100 000 in the site's  $2.5 million guaranteed tournament!
 
Paul Spillane, head of poker at Boyle Sports, said, “What a fantastic achievement, not just for Peter but Adrian too.

It was a real rollercoaster ride but we were always confident he had the skill and discipline to complete the challenge and are thrilled that he did. Congratulations to both of them.”
