The Team GuppyKillers stable has officially launched and we are now accepting applications for horses! All games, formats, and limits will be considered, so if you need a backer just drop us an app. US players wishing to stay in the country or possibly relocate are also welcome to apply!
What is Team GuppyKillers?
Team GuppyKillers (TGK) represents one of the first “crowd investment” like poker stables allowing both players and investors an opportunity to take investments in a central bankroll managed by TGK. TGK is a reformation of GuppyKillers stable which was run profitably for over a year.
TGK follows an aggressive marketing and branding philosophy to bring the stable and its players the highest profile possible, and spent over a year developing the backend, methodology, and computer systems used in the stable. The backend allows investors to track the performance of the stable in real time, seeing player performance the moment it is updated. The management team consists of winning poker players and former poker site managers with real world experience in marketing, legal, and business administration.
What we offer Horses:
TGK is not only a poker stable, but an exclusive group of players who are dedicated to excelling in the field of poker. With aggressive branding and close ties with many poker sites, TGK represents a potential stepping stone to co-sponsorship by these and other sites. Members enjoy the benefits of being in a great group of like-minded people who enjoy both a social life in and outside of poker. In addition, we pride ourselves on offering one of the best playing environments available in the poker stable industry.
We believe in a positive, professional, and fun playing environment, and that TGK is just as much a team as it is a poker stable. We will have group Skype chats, exclusive forums on our website, team bonuses, group activities and events. We will also be available for horses 'round the clock for anything they may need, like reloads, rail calls, general support issues, or just a friendly chat.
As former horses, we realize the importance of creating a positive and team-orientated attitude, and will do our best to maintain a high level of morale throughout the stable. Bonuses for stellar performances and outstanding behavior are just some of the compensation awarded horses. All horses are also given a “bonus” investment stake into the stable each time they have a winning month, so they will actually have a financial stake in their teammates' success while building a passive income. In some cases, we will even be willing to offer loans to cover real-life expenses if makeup gets large and money gets tight. All team members will also receive official TGK merchandise to denote their team affiliation at live events.
What we are looking for:
Potential members must show a core competency in poker (or the talent to achieve such) and must demonstrate a passion and ability to excel in other areas of life. TGK does not merely seek a competent winning player; we seek people who bring to our team a winning attitude both on and off the poker table. It is also important that horses maintain contact with us and keep up a frequent and consistent level of play and volume.
