Watch Andre Coimbra Turn $10 Into $1,000

A few years ago, Portugal’s Team Pro Online representative, Andre Coimbra, attempted to turn a $100 bankroll into $100,000 playing tournaments for an entire year.

2009 Magic: The Gathering World Champion failed to hit his goal (he made $70,000), but he did learn a few things along the way namely that his followers preferred it when he was playing for the same stakes as them (micro & low).

With this in mind, Coimbra has begun a new mission to turn $10 into $1,000 playing micro and low stakes Sit n Go’s and tournaments. He has created a personalised Twitch channel, and will be playing live so his followers can keep tabs on his goal progression.

Last time the deadline was 12-months.

This time, there isn’t one.

“I think that the process is more important than the goal,” wrote Coimbra.

At the time of writing his bankroll has reached $50.

Check out his progress here.
