This makes the situation even worse. He wasn't "stuck" in some sort of deal he didn't like with endless make up, he actively chose to renew the deal each time and then when he binked/ran hot enough he decided to take more than what was agreed to.

As a side note, this model seems amazing for MTT horses. If most $$ is made in a handful of binks, they stand to win 30% of those 300 game blocks where they ran hot, and eat zero losses in the others. I only ran a few calculations though.

Following up here.

Brandon Veilleux had a contract with Imawhale. Same deal we have for all MTT players. 70/30 split in our favor, but with expiring makeup. Every 300 games the set is settled, profits are chopped, and any makeup is wiped away and forgiven. Brandon did run hot during his short time staked by Imawhale. Anyone who plays MTTs for a long enough period of time will experience 300 tournament stretches where they experience SIGNIFICANT downswings. When those occur, Imawhale eats all of the losses and the player loses nothing. We structure this way to protect both ourselves and players from the bad situations that arise when an MTT horse is buried in a huge amount of makeup.

He decided that since he had been winning, he would steal $5k+ of our money, and rationalize it by saying "forget about the contract, forget about potential losses, they should just be happy they made some money". Of course had Brandon lost, he would not have come out of pocket and reimbursed our losses because the current profit split wasn't working out to 50/50. We wouldn't expect him to. If he continued to play he'd eventually hit a nasty downswing, as all players do from time to time, at which time we would swallow some big losses and just keep going at no penalty to him.

Brandon was free to opt out of the contract at any time. He kept renewing the deal over and over up until the point he decided to steal. At any point he felt the arrangement wasn't fair, he could have walked away and we could have settled up. Instead, he kept going and ultimately ran off with the cash.
This has to be one of the best MTT staking deals I've seen in favour of the horse.

I worked with the guys at Imawhale for many years earlier in my career. They are all incredibly fair/kind/helpful people. It's super unlikely that the poor communication was from their end. And as was already said even if there was bad communication there is no excuse for theft. With expiring makeup this was obviously a very fair deal and trying to justify stealing funds because they still ended up money overall is asinine.

Marius at times seemed like a good hard working horse but he kind of felt entitled to play games that were above the limits approved for him. We had a few instances where we had to warn him. At one point we thought things were going well for awhile and didn't audit him as often as we should have. We were disappointed to find out he put us in this terrible of a position and played well over $5000 worth of games that were not approved. He was roughly $25,000 in make-up and we were forced to cut him as this was way above crossing the line. He hasn't made any legitimate attempt at coming up with a solution for paying us back over time. He made some jokes about sending us some laughable amounts but has yet to work something reasonable out with us over time. He is definitely a problematic horse that you should stay away from. If he actually has intentions of making things right and does so I will update this thread.
I reached an agreement with Marius awhile back and he has paid back what we agreed upon to resolve the issue. The issue has been fully resolved. I wish him the best moving forward.

I was part of a group that staked this player from 2014-2018. The name we were given was Bogdan Cojocariu, which is definitely a male, as seen by the ID he sent us.
11-23-2021 , 06:53 PM
Ah i thought so i also asked for a selfie which wasn't provided, he used a fake Romanian ID i have a copy of, i also found he uses the same ID for a twitter account and a instagram, and a site when tries to sell pictures for crypto. Did you have issues with this player?

We ended up letting him go after 4 years, but all funds were returned, so in our case, he did nothing wrong.

I have sent him 500 euros on May 28th 2021, As he needed bankroll for MTT's that he is grinding, he had financial problems. Already 7 months he is not returning my money, the original plan was to keep it for 1-2 months and then return, I agreed on his delaying for few more months. Already for the last 1 month he is not responding to my Skype messages. I can assume that he has decided to leave with my money and scam me.
He is actively grinding on ACR with my moneys and is making good profits lately.

He was making some poker coaching videos in the past for Poker strategy, some of you might know him from there!

Do not deal with this person he is likely a scammer and will cheat you as well.

This is his ID pic and info.

888: gisfunc

We started working with gisfunc on February 15, 2020. gisfunc had some problems following his allowed games schedule and playing over his allowed limits.

At the end of 2020 gisfunc approached us to terminate the contract, but he still had a makeup with us and was surprised to find that he would have to clear the makeup if he wanted to leave or continue playing on the team until he cleared his makeup. (Even though he had already played for another team, he made it clear that he did not know how makeup worked.)

gisfunc then continued working with us, but playing very minimally for the next 6 months. gisfunc then disappeared for 3 months with no communications. When he reappeared he told us that he had been diagnosed with a very serious medical condition and that he rethought his life and that he didn't want to play poker anymore.

gisfunc returned the funds in his account, but he has a large amount of existing makeup.

We're posting this publicly so that other backers don't work with gisfunc due to the existing makeup

We signed Vasileios Papadopoulos under contract and sent him funds on November 10, 2021.

After a few days of playing we noticed that the player was playing on Pokerstars (which he had agreed to stop playing on) which is prohibited by the contract he signed.

We tried to check what had been played on Pokerstars and ended up seeing a disappearance of funds on another site as well.

Vasileios Papadopoulos sent in edited audit files to try to trick us.

Vasileios Papadopoulos owes us $1k+

Standard life issue/bankroll theft situation. Something about car crashes and businesses not paying salaries. The stolen money was eventually re-deposited and lost at the tables quickly. Additional loans are still outstanding (makeup was written off). Routine promises were made of payments of those loans, and if any actual payment is made instead of a promise to pay then this post will be updated at that time. He recently won about $1,000 in an MTT. No payments were made after that, though another promise was offered at that time.

We signed Justas Juska under contract and sent him funds on August 22, 2021.

After a few days without play and fill in his spreadsheet, Justas let us know that he had a problem with his kid and would take few days out to solve this out.

After trying to contact by all possible means and not getting any return for more than 1 month, we can only conclude that the player stole the funds that were in his possession.

Justas Juska owes us $800

Konstantin Boldoff had a repayment plan with us for $8,000. He repaid $500 and then disappeared in late 2015.

Toward the end of 2021, StartMe Stable stumbled upon our negative feedback, and has since sent us $2,614.15 of which they owed Konstantin. We are very appreciative and thank them for this.

Konstantin's remaining debt with us is $4,885.85.

We signed Rodrigo under contract and sent him funds on April 28, 2020.

In mid-year 2021 Rodrigo informed us that he wanted to leave the team and buy out his makeup. After returning the funds Rodrigo said he had had problems with Ecopayz to access his funds.

Faced with the problem, he said he couldn't pay for the makeup all at once and asked for a payment plan.

To get back a part of the makeup we agree on a payment plan.

Rodrigo paid two installments and never responded to any contact attempt.

Rodrigo owes us $390
