Hello Blonde!

About me
I have just moved back to the north west after finishing my Maths degree at Sheffield Hallam during this degree i also spent a year in Nottingham working (Placement @ Experian). Most of my time in the poker world for the last year or two has been concentrating on live poker and have been a regular around Sheffield and Nottingham for the majority of that time. I have been playing poker for 4 years now and played for a living on and off for short periods three or four times during that 4 years but the rest of the time I have been playing as a pass time and for entertainment and of course trying to make some money on the side of university and my career which I have been placing as my number one priority.

The Proposal
I am off to Vegas on the 15th June for 4 weeks! Winner winner chicken dinner! This is my post university blow out i have started working in the "real world" and will be returning to this after Vegas but my goal is go big or go home broke. While I am out in Vegas I will be playing a mix of cash and comps, the comps i am selling for here are my "big" comps, I will be giving my 100% in these comps, no late regging and no hungoverness is the plan. If this does not happen any mark up payed for this comp will be refunded. I have 4 weeks to have fun so plan to take these 7 comps very seriously. I will only not play these comp's if i am in a day 2 of another comp (if an alternative day 1 is available i will play that) or i am physically unable to due to illness etc! I will have been in Vegas for a week before my first event and plan to play a few of the daily's at the rio so should be well settled by then and over jet lag etc. I have played in Vegas before and had a successful last trip which returned a profit to blonde backers. I believe I am very trustworthy I have had many financial dealings through blonde and the rest of the poker community and never had any issues in the past.

Cliffs on the deal.

Im looking to sell 40% of the following package with the mark up set at 1.176286. The prices for each piece are below.

Date                   COMP           BUY IN      
22/06/2014   WSOP event 45            1000   
26/06/2014   WSOP event 51             1500    - Mega Stack
28/06/2014   Wynn $250k            600
29/06/2014   WSOP event 56            1000      
02/07/2014   WSOP event 62            1111         - mini one for one drop   
04/07/2014   Wynn $250k            600      
06/07/2014   Aria Main                    565

Total = $6376*1.176286=$7500


10% = $750 / £447.67
5% = $375 / £223.84
1%=$75 / £44.77

rate locked at xe.com rate today of
100 USD = £59.69

Money will need to be shipped by Friday 13th June - by Bank, Cash or Stars transfer. Happy to take money in Vegas also if this has been prior arranged this deadline does not apply!

I would appreciate any comments and feedback thanks - also if there are comps on while i am there that i have missed from this schedule that somebody feels are a MUST play im happy to hear about them! Smiley

Feel free to ask questions via pm or in the thread and happy to chat through over Skype also.

Don't mean to be rude, but if these are the punt/big time comps would you not just sell at spot to go for the glory?

Would prob chuck a few quid in for a spin otherwise.

Not rude and a fair point, I basically don't want to sell at spot for comps like these, i came up with a compromise between taking a punt and a few comps within what i could possibly put up myself. As far as im aware there is a jump between the $1ks and 1.5ks+ so the two bigger buy ins i have included 1111 and 1500 are "special" WSOP events. I was considering just doing a package of 3 1ks and 3 1.5ks and selling at like 1.1-1.15. but when i looked at the schedule it didn't really work for me so by including some of the "cheaper" comps and charging a slightly higher price i thought this was a fair way. More than happy for people to disagree with me on this view though.

In general i dont charge a mark up but, this is for stuff like, online, GPS, UKIPT etc. The fields in the 450-1ks in these are considerably tougher than what i experienced in vegas and thus is why i believe it is a fair price. This is obviously very "borderline" pricing as it has not been snapped up and people ive had interested have said let me think about it which is more than fair!

Why? If he's  value at the markup , what should it matter  whether  it's a big time tournament or not? Value is value.

Yep true. Just the way it was worded in OP maybe.

The bit about playing drunk/hung over was funny though. Might happen but if it does you at least get the spin at spot Smiley
