The easiest way to unlock this achievement is to play in the single player tournament (no host booting, no waiting for matches, high enough payouts).

The difficult part is that the AI is way too conservative and annoying.

So here is what I am able to deduce about the AI.

If you raise preflop, most of the computer players will fold, and maybe a few will call . Those that call will 95% of the time be pushed out of the hand by a raise after the flop.

If a computer player raises your raise, then there are two possibilities. If you re-raise their raise (by a fairly substantial amount say 3x), then about 60% of the time the computer player will fold. If the computer player happens to call your re-raise then you better have a good hand because the computer player has something nice.

And sadly, the most annoying feature of the AI is that they almost NEVER bluff. As a result, if you get a good hand, you really have to let them do the betting, and call their bets to raise the pot. Making a bet, even the minimum bet, will cause them to fold.

It's annoying, but you should notice that you can normally just steal all of the blinds by raising preflop. This wont get you a lot of money until the blinds raise though. Luckily, blinds are time based. So have the game deal one hand, flip the channel to a good TV show, come back in 5 minutes, play the hand, and voila! The blinds go up. Rinse and repeat until the blinds are substantially high and you should be able to clean up fairly quickly.
