Hi all, this is my first staking thread on Blonde so please be gentle!
For those of you who don't know me already my name is Andrew Hulme and I've been a professional online and live player for about one year.
I play mainly online mtts as stato_1 on stars and used to also be stato_1 on full tilt, sharkscopes and OPRs are all available for viewing.
I've also played quite a lot of live cash this year with a good amount of success which I feel has improved my live game massively, and also improved my game with really deep stacks, which will suit this format (50k starting, 60min clock).
Im currently backed for live tournaments up to 1ks by James Keys and Keith Johnson (skolsuper and mondeoman), I'm sure some of already know these guys and they (along with cambridgealex and a few other blondes) could vouch for my trustworthiness.
1k of the action of this tournament will be covered on that make up deal, I'm looking to sell up to 1250Euro worth (or 50% overall) of the remaining action at 1.1. I want to play this tournament for a few reasons. Firstly I think it will be good value as I endeavour to make as much money as possible on the deal I am currently on. Secondly I think it will be pretty decent value for an event of this buy in, I've been to Ireland a few times to play and without wanting to offend they do seem to be quite a little bit behind the times in terms of poker in general. Thirdly I want to gain some experience in higher buy-in events, and finally I'm travelling for the main event anyway, which I've won a seat for, so it means the trip makes a bit more financial sense.
I think this is good investment for you (the staker) because I expect the tournament to be relatively soft for a tournament with this size buyin, and I think I will have a better general understanding of mtt strategy than a large amount of the other entrants. I also have a very professional attitude to live tournaments (something I think is easy to underestimate), and while I will be taking this extremely seriously, I certainly will not be fazed by the amount of money involved.
Here is a link to my hendon mob which is not very flattering whatsoever, but in the interest of full disclosure...http://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/player.php?a=r&n=162065
So to summarise, selling 50% for the Dublin European Deepstack Championship High Roller 2.5k Euro Event @ 1.1
1% = E27.50/£22.91
5% = E137.50/£114.53
10% = E275/£229.07
Payment accepted ideally by BT, but would take stars if abs necessary
(also if there's any extra information ppl would like, or anything people think I should've presented differently, then please let me know, I'm new at putting these up)
