From my first few days perusing the site once I had access, I could see their business is well thought out and practically implemented. It's as if they've already thought of everything such that for someone like me, everything runs smoothly and seamlessly.

I was a little nervous getting into the whole thing, never having been staked before, but knowing all I do now I can give SharkStaking my highest recommendation.

I wont be following this thread so if anyone has specific questions, feel free to PM.

Im no veteran, but the guys have helped me see the potential in both my game, and as poker as a whole.

Between Nick and David, someone is available to answer your questions almost 24/7, no matter how mundane or straightforward. The ability to upload raw HH took me a few times to get used too, but now it is second nature and I cannot imagine doing it any other way.

This is my first stake, and support has been there for me every step of the way. Definitely recommend.

There system to send them results is extremely easy and takes 5 mins. I have never been staked by anyone else before and probably wouldn't leave Sharkstaking for another stake. Definitely recommended.

You can talk to them anytime and they always help you out if you have any questions.
The tracking of your results is very convenient and user friendly.
No need to send them excel sheets every couple weeks because you just update right through their site.
They are are very organized and make it as easy as possible for the horses to have a great experience.
Its a quality service and only getting better.
I'd recommend this staking service to anyone who wants to succeed in poker and take your game to the next level.

The coaching is very good and they are always around to answer questions. And I think the best thing about them is the results reporting. You literally just fill in your latest numbers, click a couple of buttons and the program they have takes care of the rest. No need to deal with endless spreadsheets. I highly recommend them if you are looking for backing.

They have been really easy to work with and very accommodating to my game and mixed cash/mtt schedule. With proven success, they have allowed me to work my way up through the levels. They also have a very simple, quick, and easy to use system, which makes the process a lot less stressful.

Basic requirements for backing are:
  • 1) You have great checkable refs and an unblemished history
  • 2) You are a consistent winning player, with a decent sample size at, or around the levels you are looking for staking in. With a lot of hands/mtts or sngs played
  • 3) You are willing to put in great volume

If you feel you have something to offer please apply using the link in the commercial thread, no need to pm me. But obviously feel free to do so if you have any questions at all. Please send any pms to the following username:

If you apply you must post your pokersite username in this thread (not the thread in the commercial section) or your application will be ignored. The only exception to this is if you have a superb long term reputation and wish to keep the fact that your are applying for a stake private. If this is the case please inform me in your application.

please look at my post:
