Default Ishbu like prop bet, only I think better and 100% confirmed as real

I'm sure most of you read 2+2, but that site is so flooded it can be difficult to catch real gems that come around in between all the garbage. I'll let you read the details if you wish, but basically a guy bet he could turn $100 into $10k in 15 days playing only low-limit SNG's (45 man or less). It was decided that the max limit he would be able to play regardless of his bankroll was a $16 buy in. The bet just ended today and guess what he did it. This blows my mind.

Graph of his progress:

I'm glad you noticed so I can post this insane video as well. I have a link to the prop bet participant, Boku87, playing 50 tables without any scripts or hotkeys. He seems like a robot.

Mass Multitabling SNG's

Yeah, and I don't even think that video gets close to 50 tables. The comments say that he crashed before he got that far (video + lots of tables = crash).

His decision-making speed is absolutely incredible. I don't know how he can play so quickly while making (apparently) so few errors. Remarkable.

I played against him during the propbet ALOT.. before I knew about what he was doing or how many tables he was playing. I wondered why he was always at any table I was on and yeah he was rock'n it....

Just flipping amazing man huge props to the dude

Sickkkkkkkkkkkkk

Seriously thats insane, I dont think most people realize what it is to put that kind of volume, I had to play 7 hours / day the 2 last week of february and it was only 2 tabling, its tiring as hell.

Playing 30 tables+ for 10hours+ day is wow

I might be willing to try something like this, not sit in goes but mass tabling
Anyone have any offers for something within one week?

Here is my two sickest days (and I will note I have kept my hours somewhat sane since this "weekend" in january due having a life)
