Dear Blonde,

I am exiting my staking hiatus to offer a proposal to the fine people of blonde.

Proposal

I am going to play The Closer (event 85 of the WSOP).  This is a $1500 comp with 25k chips and 30 minute levels.  So it plays like most of the tournaments I frequent.  Last year Jo Cada won it and the top prize was $600k+

Due to excessive spending I am looking to sell a bit, initially 20% but will take reserves for a further 10% (I noticed my wife on Boohoo last night) at spot.

Therefore -

5% equals - 75$
2.5% equals - 37.50$
1% equals - 18.75$

The dollar price will be based on the rate I get when I convert my money at the end of the month.  I will send a receipt of the rate achieved.  I will work to get the best rate I can do without going to timbuktu on a pedal boat - you have my word.  I will need payment by bank before the event (note my bank details have changed - unless you have the RBS ones).  I could do cash in Vegas and am staying mid strip, I will not be in the Rio until the morning of the event.

I would like to limit pieces at 5% initially as I like a team feel.  If it doesn't sell I will become infinitely less picky.

I keep the bracelet - I will pay out a percentage on winnings and will sort the ITIN etc.  Payouts will be on the rate I achieve when converting.  I will be aiming to swap at spot and will not get us fleeced by those jesters at Thomas Cook.

I am playing regardless of what sells.

About me

I have been staked on here a lot, and I have also staked others.  I have ran both longer term online stakes (one went well, one didn't) and single events.  I even paid out once.

I have a fairly demanding job so I only play about 6-7 tournaments each year primarily at 25/25 style level.  Hendon mob below:

https://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/player.php?a=r&n=178987

Not a bad return from that output.  With 4 reasonable final tables in the last few years including 2 in December.  I have only played two tournaments since then (that went well).

Positves

I arrive in Vegas on the 12th.  All the regs are going to be withered and this will be my WSOP so I will be super excited and annoying and they will simply give me all their chips to get rid of me.  In addition I will be play Day C which happens to be my birthday.  So I will be subject to birthday luck, which has to be huge.  Also, my mother in law is coming on the trip and this is my "day off" from her.  I will be clinging on to this competition for dear life for as long as I possibly can.  I may even just fold into the money.

Downsides

I am not going to be drinking wheat grass, doing yoga, or speaking to my mental coach about my feelings.  I am also about 5 stone heavier and a lot more haggard than my hendon mob photo would attest to (think Nicholas Cage 1 hour into Leaving Las Vegas).  I do Vegas the way god intended, and thus am most likely going to be hungover, and I will drink continuously throughout the day or two.  This is secretly an upside as I play better drunk (apart from that one time I passed out).  If I cannot lift my spoon to eat breakfast I will not play (that has only happened once) and you will be refunded without any FX loss. I am going to have a grand of my own money on the line, so I too will be running this gauntlet.  However, best to be transparent in case I vomit on a stakers shoe whilst discussing my thought process in busting with 4 high on a broadway board.

Summary

I am in search of like minded punters who want to fling a couple of scores at mega money.

We chopped the Grosvenor deepstack last night for 5 bags, so morale is high. Also that means we are def sold out now!!

This does raise the spectre of a second bullet (punters gonna punt).  I will only do it we have an early non tilting bust. I won’t take money for it now, will sort after if needed.  If your not in for it just confirm and your action will be on bullet 1.
