Re: 10,000th Post: SNE 2012, Jdawg91 Style (+ more!)

How about a friendly prop bet: my 100k (6,869 atm, starting at 3.5s) vs your 2mill?

No serious amount, maybe $25 or $50 mainly for giggles and some friendly competetion.

BTW take it easy with the grind this weekend, you can always start with the 2mill grind tomorrow (Monday)

Nice week up in Windsor, Simp just told me about your results (dance).

Fwiw, I don't think Im ruining my life/poker game doing this, most people can't handle putting up this kind of volume without ****ing up their life and game, but I plan on keeping a halfway normal life and highly doubt my game goes way south (this isn't me stating im going to crush $200s pre RB or anything...who knows if im even a winner in them pre RB or if anyone is, just saying im not gonna just spew a ****ton of money from bad play)
I understand your argument but if you get a cut of his action wouldn't it be better for both of you if you book as much action as you can get ?

Did some random calculations and 2 mill VPPs (starting from 0) asuming hyper rake means you gotta run like 11 million through the site. If you can actually book 6 fig action you get like at least 400k in RB+prop bets for hitting it, that's already a decent % of 11 million .

I still think going for 2 mill is pretty crazy though .

Maybe you've said this before, but what's the reason again for you to not play hyper satties? You crush the 10bb + ante structure on merge, so why not on PS right?

For those who are like wtf is he talking about....we have a jesus statue overlooking the highway south of town going towards Ensenada (its right past Calafia), its ****ing huge, I think 75 ft tall iirc from what Miguel Sedano told me

Heres a pic of it:

I don't know the math/ICM of the hyper satties and to just jump into HS satties you have to know literally every spot. 10bb merge/ftp structure and 10bb PS structure aren't even close to the same for one (ps has antes), and then you have 2 different payouts, to actually really LEARN a new payout structure to be successful at high stakes....takes months

Chicago Joey, relocated at the start of October last year and 24 tabled small-midstakes PLO to make SNE.

...then proceed to switch to bumhunting highstakes and won ~300k in the next two months. One of the sickest PTR's you'll never see, SN JoeIngram1.

You mentioned always getting a clause in your contract where you get cashouts when in profit. How would that clause actually look? When up x$ a profit chop will be done?

Yea, most backers do either monthly or biweekly type profit split, especially for sngs (or that's what I've mostly seen I should say). Theres also some guys that have salary type deals, but not gonna get into that because I've never had one and therefore am not 100% sure how they work.

But yea, my deal is that I get a profit chop every $5000 profit at w/e my profit cut is, that profit can come from table profit, rb, bonuses, whatever it may be....just every $5000 profit we do a chop.

Do you have the option to get loans from your backer?If so is that payed back via MU ,or do you pay it back with your profit when you cashout ?

Taking a very quick break to eat and study the ~30 hands I have marked. We had a small earthquake here this afternoon (about 1.5 hrs ago), was pretty nutty but nothing too major, just saw my table shaking and then got more aware and could feel it.
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...r-brawley.html

Anyway, we're heatering it up today which is nice! Also picked up a SS star for $101-300 super turbos already (flex)



Gla that are grinding out there!

Day:





Overall: +7107.23 actual, EV +6497.39

Yea if I needed money for anything, have already been told it wouldn't be a problem...hopefully wouldn't run into this situation though. It would be paid back via MU/profit...like say I was lent $2000 and then i cleared MU and we hit 5k profit and went to do a chop, i wouldn't be getting any of that money til the loan was paid off
