When i first heard of this challenge, i said that it's very doable. I started watching him on the tables and see how he play, how he was and i was astounded by how well he goes. I began to think that it's possible to complete the challenge. Then i heard that he will donate the money and I asked myself why? I mean, why to donate the money which you do by working hard at low stakes and against thousands of players in many hours... Maybe fear of God? But why if is all OK? Very interesting... What do you think?!

I also tend to think that indded the truth is the one that djpremier said...

I fist learnt about his challenge on pokerstars's youtube channel and i think he gets paid for this so he can afford to donate his winnings.

He is doing PS challenge, so PS pays him for sure. This challenge is like commercial for PS, so they, for sure, told to Coimbra to write blog, movies, ect. PS want to prove anyone can do the same, on their site...

Well, i have to admit im still skeptic about it. To me (even thou he's doing great so far) 100k still seems to much to achieve in one year. He is up 6k + from what i saw today and it might be doable if he keeps this rate but, on how much of a heater do you have to be to keep this up? Still think he'll far short, close but short..

Why do you think is too much? He will win sunday milion, trust me! Just wait and see, he will play till will make 15k20k, and he will start to play sunday milion, and at one moment, he will "hit".

By grinding alone smaller mtts i think its a very difficult task to say the least. Obviously winning a sunday million would be enough so if he does win one the task is done. Not trying to take away the importance of winning such a event, it wouldn't be much of a challenge then would it? I mean, grinding to 100k in a year is one thing but just aiming to hit one major tournament doesn't seem like the same to me.
Could be a $215 to $100k challenge then... one tournament at a time Tongue

G'day amigo

I think you are missing the point that even if he did go that route which lets face it we would all love to do. It would still show that anyone with the skills and a little luck along with alot of personal discipline can do the same thing as him. Anyone of us should be able to repeat his success with hard work and proper Bankroll management.
