Hey Everyone

For those of you that don't know me my name is Mickey Petersen and I play online mtts on across the big sites as mement_mori and i'm a longtime member of 2+2 as well as an instructor on Cardrunners. I am currently looking for a maximum of 1-2 horses who plays midstakes to add to my stable. This thread is mainly for gauging interest and seeing what kind of offers I can get.
Unfortunately I have a pretty busy schedule (I am currently in London playing WSOPE/EPT) and don't have enough time to respond to everyone so if I don't respond don't take offense, it just means that you are not what I am currently looking for. I WILL get back to you if I am interested within a couple of days so please don't send me more pm's if I dont reply to you.

What I am looking for:

- people who are lifetime winners in online tournaments
- people who have been a member of the community for at least six months, are active on 2+2 and have people that can vouch for them.
- people who aren't stubborn and are willing to admit mistakes, have an open mind and are willing to learn.
- people who are able to put in a decent amount of volume.

Info I want you to include in the pm

- All your screennames across the sites, including eurosites + hendonmob profile
- Who are you references, if you don't have any your chance of being backed is nonexistent.
- a brief summary of your poker career so far.
- what your main games are and what you would like to be staked for.
- How much volume you will be able to put in on a monthly basis (please don't exaggerate because I will check up on this) and how many tables you usually play at a time.
- what kind of % split do you think you would be fair?
- how old are you and what kind of commitments (job, study etc) do you have?
- anything you else think might be relevant

If you don't even take the time to answer those things thoroughly then you are not the kind of horse I am looking for, please keep that in mind when you reply.

What can I offer you?:

- I have had success at all stakes in online tournaments and will be able to help you improve your game no matter what stakes you are playing.
I am reliable and a trusted member If you end up getting into a more longterm deal with me I am also well connected in the poker community and might be able to help you open up even more doors for you in the future.

- I will offer/request to go over a full tournament hand history of yours at least once a month for free, I will also often be available for general strategy talk and line checks.

- I am able to take action on almost all pokersites including Pokerstars, Full Tilt, AP/UB, Bodog, Cake, Party Poker, Ongame, Ipoker etc.

- I will help you come up with a good grinding schedule that will be aiming at maximizing your income and will be evaluated and improved whenever you or I feel like it.

What kind of games can I offer you?

Well pretty much everything! I have backed people up to 1ks and 200rs and people for small and mistakes as well. I currently back someone for 45mans on FTP and 180s on stars as well so those certainly aren't out of the question either. At this time my main focus is on people who are playing small-mid stakes mtts though (not micros). I have put people that I trust in a couple of bigger live events as well so if we build up a good relationship that is certainly a possibility as well.

What kind of split am I offering?

I am very flexible and this and it depends on a bunch of stuff including results, volume, stakes, profit on the stake etc.
The most normal deal is 50-50 though but I have given some people as well as 70-30 so even if you already have a deal I might be able to offer you something more appealing, can't hurt to ask!

Please let me know if you have any further questions

Got a tons of great applications already, even though il have to turn down the vast majority of them since I am only looking for a few horses I really do appreciate all the work people are putting into them. Almost all of them have been extremely thorough and included all details, well done guys. Keep them coming!

AFAIK, 2p2's rule for this forum when posting a "pm sent" post when applying for a stake is to list screen names across sites.

Someone can confirm/correct me.
