Fellow UK Sit'n'Go Grinder Timothy Boyle, who plays on-line under the alias entim, is currently in the middle of a prop-bet to try and make $5,000 profit by playing $6.50 18-man turbo SNGs on PokerStars in only a 15-day period. I wish I'd seen the thread on 2+2 before now, because even laying him 3-1 odds (which are the odds for the prop bet), I think it would have been worth putting some money up. Theoretically, maintaining a 10% ROI would require you play nearly 7700 games in order to make $5000. I'd say it's barely feasible to play 500+ 18-man SNGs a day for 15-days straight, let alone maintain a solid win-rate for the duration as well.

Seeing as I don't have any action against him, here is wishing Tim good luck for the next 5 days. If he runs hot and can grind extra hard, he has a shot at it. It certainly won't be easy though, he's gonna need more than a couple of cans of Red Bull to get there!
Aside from the prop-bet, entim has promised to give the rakeback he accumulates, likely to be somewhere between $1k and $1.5k, to the person who best photoshops a picture of another SNG grinder; simakos. Personally I don't understand this (that's a lot of wonga to throw at a jokey project and SNG grinders are usually so particular about their rakeback!), but some stuff it's thrown up is kind of funny.
