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.

you're 100% right Fran, but I think there's a big difference between someone who knows a lot of people here making a post like this and someone relatively unknown to the rest of the forum doing it.  I wouldn't dream, for example, of making a post like this on the hendon mob forum, where hardly anyone knows who I am therefore wouldn't have been able to make a reasoned judgement on whether they thought it would be worth investing (or, indeed, whether I'd just do a runner with their money).

I was still prepared for a bit of stick as I've seen how these things have gone in the past, but I've been pleasantly surprised - that there has not been a load of stick must be a good reflection on the forum, surely.

Good luck to you too - see you tomorrow! x

Good luck Claire and all the other Blondes in. Did you get the full 50% sold? Are you nervous about potentially losing other peoples cash? I was once offered a full buy in and travel costs to a WSOP event but there is no way I could have taken it for fear of losing the persons cash (although he could afford it easily). For me it would have messed up my game (i think) but if a company was to offer the money to me it would be different as not directly out of an individual's pocket. Have you thought about this and how it might affect your game or are you confident in any case?   Good luck and take it doon!!

Hi Mad,

yes I got the full 50% sold.  I've been staked in tournaments before and no, it doesn't make me nervous.  If I sat there fretting about losing other people's money I wouldn't be playing to the best of my potential.  I'll be doing what I always do whether I've paid the full buy in myself, sold some interest, or been bought in by someone else - playing to win Smiley

Was the person who offered to buy you in to the WSOP event a poker player too?  I'd be less inclined to accept an offer from someone who wasn't involved in poker - trying to explain to them that the reason you busted first hand was down to sheer bad luck rather than you being shite would be difficult I think, whereas anyone who knows the game knows that it happens.
