This has now ended, and it's not ended well.
Fortunes have been extremely mixed.
This graph is of the $69+$6 tournaments I played.
We did very well for a while, for a total profit of $35k or so including rakeback.
The stakers had made 105% return on their investment.
We then hit a large and prolonged downswing, which this evening has swallowed the last of the bankroll. 105% becomes just 5%.
A few stakers had their slices bought back before the downswing so they faired better.
Two more I resold a couple of those slices to and they didn't see any return on them before all was lost so have lost money overall from the arrangement.
There's likely to be a future project and those two people will be given priority for buying slices and possibly some concessions should they want to deal with me again.
Personally, I've done quite well from the arrangement. Except for the last 1,000 games. I regret how it has ended, I would have hoped to have done much better for everyone. I especially regret that two people have lost money overall.
