Hi, i'm Oliver Gill Gaber, aka Talerric on Pokerstars and SwoopAE on Full Tilt. I'm a 27 year old professional poker player from Australia and I'm looking to sell up to 60% of my WSOP Package this year. I am a dual citizen so there will be no tax withholding. This will be my fourth summer in Vegas.
I have started the year with a nice upswing both live (4th in an Aussie Millions prelim event for 43k and two deep runs at WSOP APAC including cashing the main for 22k and 16k) and online (up around 100k in 2013 online including winning the Sunday Second Chance and Big 162).
I have sold three packages on 2+2 this year, all of which have resulted in a +100% ROI return or better for investors. To view these packages as well as any previous packages I have sold, search for my username on the marketplace forum.
I have separated the package into Main and Prelims and I am offering a discount if you buy both packages together which is my preferred option. You are welcome to buy one package or the other individually, but this will result in a slightly higher markup.
I am selling up to maximum of 60%. I am taking 30% of this package myself, so I will have several thousand dollars of my personal funds invested for investors peace of mind. My online backer bigbluffzinc is also taking 10% of the package onstake on my online backing deal. The package will be played regardless of how much action I have sold.
The first event in the package is on 7 June 2013 and the package concludes by mid July unless i'm in the November Nine, in which case smiley faces all around because we're all rich.
All shares will need to be paid for before the first event for you to have action. All shares and refunds for any unplayed events will be paid out upon completion of the final event in the package.
I'll be own diming a few of the smaller Venetian/Caesars events on my off days, but the events in this package will form the bulk of my WSOP trip this summer and I can give my personal guarantee that I will not play an event unless I am 100% focused on winning that event.
I will be very focused on poker when I am playing this summer, I have scheduled plenty of off days and I am travelling with my girlfriend who is also a poker player so I won't be out partying at 3am the day before a tournament and I have a condo on the strip for the summer so I will be well rested before events.
In the event any event does not get played due to a deep run or any other reason, shares will be refunded along with makeup for that event.

Combined Package 1+2 (Prelims and Main) = 25080 USD @ 1.248 = $313/share (I prefer to sell as a package, but if you only want prelims or main for some reason that's fine so long as you're willing to pay the slightly higher markup)
Selling up to 60% total
Bigbluffzinc/SwoopAE onstake 10%
Since I am a dual citizen there will be no tax withholding so you will receive your share of all cashes/refunds in full via your choice of payout method upon completion of the package after you have completed any relevant tax forms for your share if necessary.
If you choose any payment method other than PokerStars transfer or cash in Vegas (moneybookers, bankwire, paypal etc.) that is fine but you will cover any fees for the transactions. Cash in Vegas is preferred if possible. Please specify which method you plan to use to pay when you make your reserve.
My Poker Resume, Screennames and Graphs
I have over 300k net winnings online. My screennames are Talerric on Pokerstars, SwoopAE on Full Tilt, UB and Party, Mutaharass on 888 and Ongame. Stars and FTP (bulk of my volume) are displayed in the graph below. Note the solid winrates in NLHE, PLO and 'Other' which is basically HORSE, HA, 8-Game and 10-Game, covering all of the games played in this package.
In my most recent live packages linked below, I finished 4th in the 1100 6max at Aussie Millions for 43k, locking in a +100% ROI for investors post-markup.
Some live results include 4 Aussie Millions prelim event final tables in the past 4 years (1100 PLO and HORSE in 2010,1100 8Game in 2011, 1100 6max in 2013) where I finished 4th, 5th, 5th and 4th respectively, 4 cashes in 12 WSOP events played including an 18th in the 1500 PLO, a 12th in an 1100, both with 1000+ players and a cash in the 10k WSOP APAC main this year. I also won a random teams event in Australia and have numerous final tables on the Australian live circuit, some of which are recorded on The Hendon Mob and others of which are not for some reason.
Online results over the past 12 months or so include winning the Sunday Second Chance for 43k and Big 162 for ~25k this year, third in the Big 162 a couple months ago for ~23k, winning the Sunday 50r for ~23k, third and fifth in the Sunday Second Chance for ~22k and ~15k and an approx. 30th place finish in the Sunday Million 6th Anniversary for 7k. I've also won the Saturday 215 PLO and Sunday 215 HORSE and most of the daily NLHE tournaments I play regularly and double-cashed the 535 10-game with two entries during the most recent FTOPS.
Some but not all of my live cashes are listed at the Hendon Mob under two pages due to my evidently confusing two word surname.
For verification that I have played a particular event, any investor is welcome to ask me to upload a picture of my entry (or re-entry) receipt for a tournament and I will do so. I will ensure that Pokernews tracks my chip count as regularly as possible since I am friends with some of the reporters, and chip counts will also be on Twitter @SwoopAE. If you buy shares, I will be doing live updates during each tournament on Twitter and I encourage you to follow me to track your progress.
How to buy shares
Post your reserve in thread and i'll confirm it. Since I am playing this package regardless of how much action I sell, you can either send immediately and your action will be confirmed, or specify a date prior to the first event that you will send by. At this stage i'd prefer to sell out the package first and then have everyone send at once, so just state what method you plan to pay by, and some time in May when the package is sold out I will send a round of PMs asking people to pay for your shares. If you are planning to pay cash in Vegas, we can meet early in the series to sort it out there.
Cash in Melbourne and Stars transfers are preferred methods of payment although i'm willing to accept Moneybookers, Bank Wire and Paypal as well if you are willing to cover any fees involved both getting the money to me and for me to get the money back to you. Same deal with any cashes, you can collect the money in person (preferred) or receive a stars transfer from me after the series or I can pay you via paypal/bankwire/moneybookers although if it involves any fees, the fees will come out of your end if you wish to collect the funds via any method other than Pokerstars transfer or cash in Vegas.
I've sold lots of action on 2+2 and other forums over several packages including cashing for over 80k this year in packages sold on 2+2, all investors were paid with no hassles.
For my action sold threads just search for any thread started by me on the selling shares live or online forums. I have also sold action at pokertips.org for some series under the same screenname as I have here.
Some references for players who have bought my action and/or know me irl include Seb86, Mattraq1, ashley12, Deanuzz, Lovewrecked, LiveForever (my former backer), Cellarendorphin, Walchy, MaxKatz, bigbluffzinc (my current backer), as well as anyone who has bought action from me in the past .
I'll direct a few of them to the thread to drop references.
Thanks for investing, and I look forward to making us some money!
