Arrow SCOOP High-Level package, selling shares

I wasn't planning on selling pieces for SCOOP, but I had a few guys PM/message me saying they wanted to take a piece for a sweat, and some others were disappointed that they didn't get a piece of my 50k 8-game package, so that's the main reason I'm doing this. The other main reason I'm doing this is to motivate myself to play these events. I only played one event in last year's SCOOP and I want to play more this year.

This package will include all High-Level SCOOP events except for event #35-H which is the $25k high roller HU event. I will not be playing this one. Instead I will include event 35-M in the package, which is the $2600 HU event.

Here is my sharkscope graph:



Here is my OPR:

http://www.officialpokerrankings.com...7EC54.html?t=2

Here is my recent staking thread for the $50k 8-game event. It details my thoughts on how I should stand against the field in each game. I obviously think I'm better against the average player in these SCOOP events than I am in the 50k WSOP event though:

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/16...markup-761336/

The total buyin for these events is $88,330. If I rebuy once and addon once in every event where this is possible, it brings the total to $103,830. I will make the package worth $100k total, just for simplicity's sake.

I am selling at a 1.2-1 markup, with a minimum investment of $300. So you can get 0.25% of my action for $300, 0.5% for $600, 1% for $1200, 2% for $2400, etc.


Here are some rules I must follow:

- I must play the main event.

- I am allowed to skip the next day's event if the time I bust from an event is within 6 hours of the start time of the next day's event. i.e. if it's Tuesday, and Wednesday's first event starts at 11am, I am allowed to skip it if I'm still in an event after 5am.

- I am allowed to skip the $5200 Limit Holdem event (#32-H). I most likely will not play this one.

- I am allowed to skip up to 3 more events of my choice.

- I am allowed to skip events if an unforeseen emergency comes up. What constitutes an emergency is up to my discretion, but believe me it will be a REAL emergency for me to invoke this clause. I will not use this as a way to weasel out of this.

If I break any of these rules, your entire package (including events which I've already played) will be converted from 1.2-1 markup, to no markup...i.e. even money. So if you originally bought 1% and I break any of these rules, you would then have 1.2% of my action for all events.


If I somehow lose over $100k in these events (if I have to rebuy a few extra times in some events or whatever), I will eat the rest of the losses. You cannot lose more than your initial investment. Obviously if my total buyins ends up being less than $100k, you will be refunded your portion of any unused buyins.

Here are a couple examples of how the payouts will work:

You invest $600 for 0.5%. I play $110k worth of buyins, and end up with $300k in total cashes. Your total would be (300k * 0.005) - (110k * 0.005 * 1.2) + 600 = $1440

You invest $1200 for 1%. I play $90k worth of buyins, and end up with $50k in total cashes. Your total would be (50k * 0.01) - (90k * 0.01 * 1.2) + 1200 = $620

I hope this makes sense.

All payments must be receive by the time the first event starts. I will go by the timestamp in my cashier if there are any disputes. Any payment received at or before 10am pacific time on Sunday will count, any payment received after that will be returned.

The maximum I will sell is 30% although I don't expect to sell nearly that much in this short of a time. There will be no reserves allowed...whoever pays before the first event starts will have action. I may sell slightly more if there is that much interest, but I doubt that will be the case anyway.

Also please let me know if any of what i said doesn't make sense, and I will clarify. I put it together pretty quickly so there might be things I'm not thinking of.

Re: SCOOP High-Level package, selling shares

LOL @ myself for the first question. I'm cheap and low on funds.

Any chance you sell less than .25%?

What do you think a reasonable profit expectation for your run is? I can scrape together the 300 or 600 but I would like to know your own realistic expectations for these events.

Thanks!

Nah, I'm gonna stick with 0.25% ($300) as the minimum.

As for realistic profit expectation, who knows. It's such a small sample size, only 38 events. I mean not cashing at all in 38 events definitely isn't impossible, nor is binking a couple events and making $500k. I think it's a good investment for you guys, otherwise I wouldn't be offering it. I definitely feel confident in my abilities and have pretty good, consistent results in past WCOOPs, although I haven't had a really big score (my biggest score is like 30k, I've run pretty bad late in a few events). I like playing a bunch of different games against fields who are likely not as experienced as I am in most of the non-nlhe games.

I don't really expect to sell all that much though, given that I'm only doing this on 2 days notice. Like I said in my OP, I'm mostly offering this to give a sweat to ppl who asked me if they could buy a piece, and also to motivate myself to actually play the events.

Also realize that if you invest $300 or $600 or whatever, the odds of you losing the whole investment is pretty small. I would have to lose over $100k for that to happen. More likely if I run "normal bad" but not "0 for 38 bad", you might lose half your investment or something.

do you mind multiple transfers? for some reason my max 24h transfer is down to 200$. Don't know why, the $250 for the 50k 8-game wasn't a problem...

Re: SCOOP High-Level package, selling shares

I'd like 3% but my tranfers limits are 1k/24 hs. Had to send 1k to try and increase it but it won't let me, so I emalied Stars. I'll try to send the rest before you sell out/SCOOP starts, but if I don't then send me back $100 and I get 0.75%.

Good luck!

Re: SCOOP High-Level package, selling shares

George sent 3K few hours ago but stars has been holding up the transfer and asked me to verify I am sending it to you with your first and last name which I replied to them with. So no idea when you will get it.
