Been wondering why no one has done this, I for one would be interested, tried my first two bigger buy in tourns the 40k and 20k and cashed in both, bankroll is building nicely but still not enough to enter the million comfortably but sharing is good. There are a number of players who could make a run, JT, Cheon, Hobo,Dirty, Sand, and many more, I certainly would love to play.

I was thinking of doing it for the SCOOP
Been playing some satellites and cashing T$
I've accumulated close to $600 and will be doing so until end of April
Then I will decide which tournament to play

I was going to offer, sell or ask for stakes for the games I would register to
I would put in 50% and the rest would be open to anybody willing to stake

But, don't know if I would be aloud to do so
I would do it like this existing staking site:
** Link to competing site deleted **

So maybe the mods or staff could let me know

I am interested in playing and maybe backing on a small scale (1% to 2% of my bankroll) if I can get my $77 bankroll up over $100.

Sandtrap,

I signed up at chipmeup. If it is not too late I could try to specify you as a referrer. If you want to pursue this any further, PM me (I tried to PM you, but did not seem to be able to).

Almost like we need a sub section for people that have been here 6 months or more.
Would really go a long way in cutting the fat,so to speak.
I know 2p2 has a rule that you must be in the forum contributing for 6 months before you are allowed
to enter the marketplace.

Thank you Redletterman for the endorsement I have a tendency to want to min-cash when backed
and Im not sure if I have shaken that monkey.The way I have been running this week would scare me from taking up that offer.I like Sandtraps chances better to be honest.

I often go to the site, just to look around and see what people do. What are the stakes, what percentage, what are the results of some of the players, etc. Haven't registered and don't know if I would for now.

Yes we do need a section for this.
Hey Dirty, first thanks for your support...lol. I play a bit the same way, as I want to cash, once in the cash, I than open up to try for more.

I think that anyone willing to play with other peoples money, should at least be willing to invest a minimum of 50%. So if I'm to offer stakes in a $215, I should invest from my own money, $107.50 and then offer 50 shares of $2.15, which would total 100 shares. Then the amount won will be divided in 100 shares. If the 50 shares hasn't been reached, then the player should be ready to assume the rest.

Just my 2 cents!!

What I meant by that is the trust aspect.
I feel more comfortable with people I know,not a slag on new members just trust is earned and relationships are built over time.

In any staking sites, you'll see that any number of shares can be bought. First come, first serve, if there's no more shares after 10 minutes, well to bad...lol I've seen people buy up the entire lot of shares, leaving nothing for the others..lol

I've been playing $3.40 18 man regular to see how i do in the Battle of the Planets
I'm satisfied with the financial results, but not for the battle..lol,
20 games, In the money 7 times (35% ITM) for a profit of $31.90 (46,9% return) but just 288 points. I'll be playing another 20 games (just to see if it wasn't just luck....lol) and might try a staking opportunity to test the waters and if it works, than will look at bigger stakes.
