Re: Staking and Getting Healthy: 2012

Wow, that graph is awesome. Is there a way to do this with cash results?

Also, I wonder if you could think of 3 tips you'd give to someone getting into staking for the first time?

Re: Staking and Getting Healthy: 2012

WOW to the graphs ,really is crazy when you look at it like that....i'm sure mine would be interesting to if i was to do that ,shame i don't know how to ,lol

Another questions..........

How much of your(you and Elio) staking bankroll do you have invested in horses right now ,just a percentage will do(would like a figure, but I don't expect you to post that)

Also.......

you replied to Nations post with this ............

"I think 100 is possible. i def wanna get there, but i also want to have more solid guys in the stable."

What do you mean by more solid ?

Sick read.
What kind of agreement do you make with micro-low stake horses. (Like minimum amount of games, volume, etc.)

I was going to do a thread like this when I had my stable but I could never collect HH's from everyone. It's defiantly good advertisement when you have those super hot months.

Not sure if its possible for cash results.

1. Bankroll management
2. Pick the right people (good people with good character)
3. Be involved with all your horses. its better to create relationships with people then to just be some name on a screen. Its tough to do, but i have met a lot of really cool people who i stake. just takes a lil effort.

Yeah, i dont drink much soda at all. only time i drink soda is when i am drinking jack and coke. Fast food in mexico is pretty much non existent. the only fast food i eat is some tacos from local taco stands.

What do you mean by more solid ?
Just a guess, but i would say something like 25% of our staking bankroll is actually invested in people atm.

There are always people who arent a good fit for the stable. some guys dont grind enough, some are just hard to deal with in general, some just arent as good as we first thought. just want to get to a point where every single person in the stable is a "good" horse in all categories.

We have the same agreement with everyone, no matter what level they play in terms of volume. We just ask they play as much as they can, and if the volume (or lack thereof) is becoming a problem, i ask them to play more etc

Re: Staking and Getting Healthy: 2012

wow, seems like sick variance over 50 horses and 30k games

guess it would look v different without the 5 or so very high stakes guys you got?

are these swings normal when compared with 2011 total graph?

its tough to get a graph like this all the time, cause people come and go. this is only for stars. we stake guys on a few dif sites.

those swings are normal and can be a lot lot bigger.

we are moving to staking higher avg buy-in guys, so i am sure the graph at end of 2012 will have some ridic swings. hopefully more upward then downward

Gl with your goals and I'm sure this will be super entertaining.

Do you also stake live player and do you have a bracelet ?
Also, I'm sure it got answered, but to you/elio coach players ?

Re: Staking and Getting Healthy: 2012

we are starting to get into more live staking. live 10ks are scary

we do not have a bracelet. black friday basically killed our vegas plans this summer


elio coaches some of the guys in deeper MU, but he isnt a personal coach for everyone in the stable

Re: Staking and Getting Healthy: 2012

I like this baby merge stable more than the swings you guys are seeing.



Guess you gotta add the HS guys to maximize return.

Sick year so far despite the ugly TCOOP and Sunday thus far.

Best of luck to ya bud, very much looking forward to seeing the progress of your horses and business throughout the year.

Re: Staking and Getting Healthy: 2012

So the chart you posted is the total profit from the horses at the tables ?


Or is that what you and your partner have made so far this year from these guys ?

Both of our posted graphs are just Sharkscope global alias' created with all the horses in the stable. It is all table profit from all horses.

If you operate under the assumption that everything is 50/50 splits, then Zima is +~$35k on the year this far to be split at whatever percentage between him and Elios.
