Like the description says, this isn't valid in Scenario mode so you will either have to do this in another single player mode or in multiplayer. This will take quite a while to get in single player, and isn't even possible until your bankroll is high enough to buy into one of the higher buy-in tournaments, so your best bet is multiplayer.

This achievement is very easy to get in multiplayer, and if you plan on boosting for the $1,000,000 bankroll achievement, you will get this achievement along the way if you are boosting for that the most efficient way possible.

The fastest way to get this is to create a game with the following settings:

Limit Type: No-Limit
Blinds: $100/$200
Buy - In: $50,000
Camera Mode: Doesn't matter
Players: 2 is best, but if you don't have a boosting partner then you are more likely to get someone to join a game with more slots

If you have a boosting partner, What each of you do will be different depending on who is the dealer. If the person who needs the achievement is the dealer, then they simply need to go all-in, and have the other person fold. This won't get you the achievement yet, but this will get you back up to $50,000 you started with before being forced to place the ante in. The next hand go all-in, and you will get the achievement.

If the person who needs the achievement is not the dealer, then have the dealer simply fold, and next hand have the person who needs the achievement go all-in.

If you don't have a boosting partner, this still isn't very hard to get online. Just create or join any game with $50,000 buy-in and hope you aren't one of the two people who are forced to ante up in your first hand. When it gets to be your turn, go all-in. Be cautious of someone calling you here if you don't want to lose the $50,000 towards your bankroll achievement, however.
