Spade **CLOSED** Selling Shares to WSOP Player's Championship $50k 8-Game Event...No Markup

This is Jorj95 on PokerStars, and I'm looking to sell shares of myself for the WSOP 50k 8-game event on May 28.

Here is my OPR:

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

Here is my sharkscope graph:



Obviously my graph has very little to do with my ability to play an 8-game format, since almost the entire graph is from NLHE sngs, but at the least I would think it shows that I have a solid poker mind.

I'm going to go through each of the games and try to elaborate on where I think I fit in in comparison to the field:

Triple Draw: I played this game in the casinos at limits varying from 75-150 to 300-600 and was very successful at it. I also played a lot on Ultimate Bet at limits between 80-160 and 300-600 and also made a lot of $. I have done a TON of studying on this game on proper strategy and feel that I am far ahead of almost everyone in the field in this game unless there are some triple draw specialists in the field.

Limit Holdem: I have good results overall in this game playing mostly 20-40 and 40-80 early in my poker career. Most of these games were against fairly weak fields though, and as such I would rate myself as below average against the 50k field, but I still feel comfortable.

Omaha H/L: I have played this in mixed games at limits ranging from 40-80 to 300-600 and had pretty good results in some fairly tough games. I would rate myself as around average or maybe slightly above average compared to the 50k field.

Razz: I haven't played this game much but pretty much no one in the 50k field has played it much either. I feel like I'm slightly above average in this game as I've seen some of the players make silly mistakes, but really there's just not a lot of advantage to be had in this game in this kind of field.

Stud: This is probably my best game of the 8, and definitely the one where I have the most experience relative to the field. I cleaned up in stud games for years at the casino at limits ranging from 75-150 to 400-800 until the game basically died a few years ago. I would rate myself as one of the top players in the field at this game.

Stud H/L: I haven't played this game all that much, just in mixed games whenever people wanted to play it. Since it's a very mathematical game I feel like I definitely know what I'm doing in the game though, and am definitely up $ lifetime in it. I would rate myself average to slightly above average vs the field.

NL Holdem: Obviously I've played this game a ton in recent years but so has everyone else. I feel like I do things better than most people in this field, especially on the mathematical side of things (i.e. when to 3bet or 4bet, when to shove or call a shove, etc.), but there are definitely players better than me at playing deep stacked. I would rate myself slightly above average in this game.

PLO: I don't have all that much experience in this game but I don't feel like a donkey in it either. When I've played it in tourneys before I've felt comfortable with my game and am definitely not afraid to be aggressive when I feel like it's necessary. I would say I'm a dog to the field in this game though, just because a lot of the players have way more experience at this game than I do.

I played the 50k HORSE WSOP event in 2008 and definitely felt like I was ahead of the field overall. I lasted until close to the end of day 3 but didn't cash. I didn't play the event in 2009 because it wasn't televised, and therefore a lot of the weaker players were unlikely to play it in my opinion.

I final tabled the 10k HORSE event during the 2009 WCOOP.

I am selling pieces at even money in chunks of $250 and am looking to sell about half my action. I will play the event regardless of how much I sell though.

As for reliability/trustworthiness, I like to think I'm pretty well known in the poker community and I would be surprised if anyone had anything bad to say about me. I do tons of financial transactions with a ton of different poker players (swaps, backing, etc.) and have always fulfilled my end of the deal. I am also a Team Pro on PokerStars (obv brag ) and as such I would have a lot to lose by pulling a scam. If anyone wants to post in here to vouch for me, feel free to. If anyone needs references from me I will be glad to get them.

So, $250 for 1/2%, $500 for 1%, $1k for 2%, etc., ship to 'Jorj95' on PokerStars. If you can't ship on Stars, I can work something out on Full Tilt also, but it's much easier for me to accept it all on Stars if possible.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sick barg, would love to hear about that $100K vertical jump at around 90K games. Will consider supporting a fellow Arizonan and I certainly see this as a very good investment in a very good player... but I don't maintain a very large onliine roll so we'll see. Good luck regardless George, TID!

Yeah I probably put up the thread a little early, but I just wanted to make sure I sold enough. If anyone wants to reserve a piece and pay a couple weeks before the event starts, that's fine too. I only ask that you post with your screen name and amount you want reserved in this thread. I will ask for the money around May 10th or so, just to make sure I can sell enough in case some people back out. Thanks.

Hello, I am ready to take 1/2% or 1% but would like to pay few days (or weeks) before the event.

I'm not a big online player and deposited one or two weeks ago so I have 1K.

PM sent with my email address so that you can ask me for the money before the event.

I'm like 95% sure it is, and I think this is a huge advantage for me since I'm so well versed in the effects of ICM compared to this field. Obviously ICM matters in any game but it's way more important in big bet games.

The 50k HORSE I played in 2008 got like 150 players, I could see this getting anywhere between 150-200 or maybe slightly more.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I'm +EV in this, otherwise I wouldn't be playing it. I suppose I could be wrong as it's pretty much impossible to accurately say your EV in any tournament.

I've played mixed games in the past with a lot of the people who will be in the field and feel very comfortable with my game overall.

Unless you've played the game a lot, how would you know who has played it a lot? And how would you know a serious but non-obvious mistake from a silly yet minor one? I've seen several great poker minds excel at this game, and some that outright spew at it.

Because in all the years I played in the casinos, I rarely ever saw the game being played? I have a good understanding of hand values in this game and also coming from a stud background I understand some stud plays that also work well in this game.

I'm not denying that there are razz experts out there, I just doubt that more than 2 or 3 of them are playing the 50k event.

Also I wouldn't call someone a "great poker mind" if they spew at any game, much less razz.
