He's a well known name in the world of MTTs and definitely is an extremely good player. Keep the idiotic comments out of this thread. If you have a problem PM Bobo or the poster.

Tony is an absolute beast. If I had won the main event I would definitely be staking him right now.

That's a good question, while I'm roomates with Dave in Las Vegas and we share many a SonicBlast, he's getting out of the staking game, because it's a lot of headaches.

Oops, didn't see the second point. To answer that question, winning $200K or $300K, doesn't actually mean you have that much money. You got things like taxes, splits, etc. Even if you did, that amount isnt enough to play every $15,000 main event in sight. Personally, I irresponsibly paid off a lot of things I had put on my credit card. Woulda like to put it all on the blackjack table, just didnt quite feel right...

Re: ***Official Staking Thread: Ask for/Offer stakes (100 STRAT post minimum to post)

I am looking to get staked for SS Cash games and MTT's. I have recently had to withdraw all of my money on stars due to a reason which I will explain in a pm. I have been playing poker for quite a while and believe I understand the game pretty well. I have crushed the micro-SS cash games and done well in MTT's.
My sn on pokerstars is jscott1586 (OPR), but I currently do not have any graphs at the moment as i just recently purchased a new computer.

This thread has been basically rendered obsolete with the new sub-forum, but I'll keep it open for a couple more days so people can clean up any loose ends, then I'll lock it.

Edit: On second thought, this is just going to cause confusion. If there's something anyone needs to respond to or deal with in this thread, PM me and I'll see if I can accommodate you. Thread locked.

Re: ***Official Staking Thread: Ask for/Offer stakes (100 STRAT post minimum to post)

Hey, I'm a 27 year old, well rounded, poker professional who has played for a living for 3 years under the sn "her ghost". I've decided to offer my services as a means of reducing variance and to relieve a little pressure from myself.

My primary game has been Razz where I specialize in HU and shorthanded games mainly around the 15/30-50/100 limits. I'm very adept at range merging, hand reading, and switching gears in order to adjust to various playing styles. Modesty aside, I feel I'm one of the best players available, and I believe the regulars at those stakes would cite the same.

While I do not tilt, I've had a hard time quitting a juicy game when running poorly which is an area I feel playing for someone else could benefit me ( stop loss conditioning ) as I would never abuse another's trust.

For no good reason I didn't get PTStud till April, but here is the graph from then until now. Razz from limits 5/10 to 100/200.




Each downswing happened in a short span where I neglected to quit a poor opponent despite not being able to gather any momentum. This must change, and my backer will be the beneficiary of this lesson. After the last downswing I cashed out with the intentions of shopping myself, while leaving myself a little bit to play with in order to stay sharp and test different style variations. I would prefer never to deposit won money back into a poker site.

I will be looking to play mainly around the 20/40-50/100 levels.

I'm also interested in being staked for MTTs where my results are as follows





This deal would be dependent on the previous staking option. I would entertain the idea of solely playing MTTS if I find little interest in cash. Otherwise I'd be interested in at least being staked for Sunday Horse, which I have won, and the Tuesday 5k razz where I have taken 1st,2nd,3rd, along with any specific tournaments my backer might suggest. One backer for both is preferable but two would be fine if neither have a problem.

I have aim, and plenty of references. I would expect anyone who pms to have the same. Thank you very much for your attention and consideration.
