My understanding is that this not nipping, but staking.

mine too.  I would never play poker on 'borrowed' money, which is pretty much why I've posted this thread because I want to play, but don't want to spend more than i can comfortably afford or borrow the cash from where/whoever.   I've not approached anyone directly, just explained the situation here and invited anyone who wants to take a punt with the chance of turning a few quid in to something a bit more to contact me. 

If that's nipping, then guilty as charged I guess, but it's not my understanding of the term.

nipping is borrowing money from a person or group of people

promising them you will pay it back at £1 for £1


what claire has asked for is a stake you buy 10% of her for £35

if she loses you get nothing if she wins you get 10% of what she wins

 Good luck this weekend Claw.....go get em!

 I think we should have a staking/ swap % board........for live and online.

 Gives you some additional interest in comps, and the chance to make a bit or lay off some of your outgoings.

Good idea, we can all line up and be picked like football at school.

I always enjoyed doing the picking - sadly this would not be the case here.

GL at the weekend C, may well see you there.

Shit post Nakor, such a clown.

I think this would be good idea - I always miss the 'random staking' threads usually Cheesy
