Offer - $2.50 180 man Stars Tournaments (Apply Within)
« on: August 20, 2013, 10:30:20 AM »
Hi Guy"s

Don"t know if there will be much interest in this but thought I would post it anyway. Having played quite a few of these games myself over the last few months they have the potential to be quite profitable. I was thinking that somebody might wish to take a shot at these so came up with this offer.

Stake is $250 to be used to play the $2.50 180 man turbo games on Pokerstars. The stake is a bit of a punt on my part (as it should be 200-300 buyins really) but the horse cannot lose so that is fine. You need to commit to playing at least 50 games per month though.

At the end of each month the profit is split 50/50 after stakeback which has to be paid first, so the first $250 profit you make must be returned to me before any profit is split after the stake has been returned it is 50/50 on any profit made at the end of each month. So after my initial investment has been returned at the end of each month we will split the profit,unless we decide we wish to do something else with it (ie build the stake for a shot at larger events).

This thread must be kept up to date with number of games played and profit/loss made

APAT's 1% will come from MY share if the profit

I would like to start this stake 01/09/2013 if possible, if not it will be 01/10/2013. Applications from Staker Licensed players should be posted in the thread. I would like applications to include

1) Expected Volume, very important in these games.
2) Links to an unlocked OPR and Sharkscope, this make for total transparacy.
3) Your experience in playing these games.
4) Any software you use whilst playing the games (ie PT4, HEM, tableninja etc)
5) Any other relevant info I need to be considering.

I want to take at least one person, may take two if there are two REALLY good applications.

Closing date for applications is 28/08/2013 as I will make a decision and xfer funds by 01/09/2013

1) Expected Volume, very important in these games. My shifts at work have recently changed, so I will be working Monday and Tuesday 1-10, and then 7-4 for the rest of the week, so I will have plenty of time to put alot of volume in to this, would be looking to 3/4 table as this is where i feel most comfortable!

2) Links to an unlocked OPR and Sharkscope, this make for total transparacy.

3) As you know, I played a load of these for our challenge in June, and it didnt go particularly well. What I will say is that I wasnt using a HUD at that point, which I intend on using this time, and my play wasnt particularly poor I dont think, and I am confident that I have the game to do well and make us both some money in these.

4) Any software you use whilst playing the games (ie PT4, HEM, tableninja etc)

I will be using HEM as of September.

5) Any other relevant info I need to be considering.

My online game has improved alot this year in particular. I am playing with a cool head, making reasonable decisions rather than playing tilted/emotional.

I firmly believe that I will do well for us on this, no matter how long it lasts and would really give my all to it.

Ill have a go.

Used to be in a study group for these but had to cut short to old job

At work so apologies if post is a mess.

Volume: happy 24tabling these, as decisions are fairly std. I"d aim 500 games a month minimum

As said lots of experience in playing and coaching. Feel free to filter my stats on sharks cope username s4ooter. 2012 onwards in when I got used to the games

Software. I have a HUD on PT4 specifically for 180s, table ninja, icmizer and a Skype list full of 180 grinders and coaches to discuss hands with

Why am I applying?

Withdrawn all monies online for upcoming holiday, but this would be (variance permitting) a good chance to make us both some $$$

I would like to be considered for this staking, if I am not too late. I played in the recent league that you set up and finished 2nd.

The 180 man turbo games were a new format for me at the time so it took me a week or so to adjust . I have a lot of experience in mtts and online cash games and play most days. After a bit of experience at the tables and watching a few strategy vids / articles I soon found what was needed.
I am a very motivated person, especially when set a challenge and I agree that they have the potential to be very profitable.
I would be able to play 130 - 180 of these during September. I will be missing a few days because I am playing GUKPT Manchester.

When I wrote this thread I was not sure anybody was going to respond. I certainly did not expect 3 players of this caliber to answer. I have only selected one but I am 100% sure that if the other two made their own threads to play this under similar terms to this one they would be snapped up very quickly. I am sure all three players are +EV in these games and would win money long term.

It is hard to make a choice based on ability as we have three excellent players who understand how to play this kind of game. They show good stats and I know all three personally and can see merits to selecting all three.

My selection is Stu. tbh This may be influenced by the fact he is a mate of mine and therefore I know him better than the other two but I have talked to him a lot about poker of all kinds and I know how good a player and thinker he is. He hides it well and you would not know it at the table with him but the Stockton Massive are masters of disguise. I will leave it at that :-)

If Dann and Craig are still interested in this I would really recommend they start their own staking thread. I am a degenerate so will probably buy shares anyway.

So anyway Stu, good luck us let"s do some epic winning !!!!!!!!

Don"t forget the rail could be an epic thread.

First little session in the book!

Really enjoyed myself, kept it to a max of 4 tables going at once, which seemed to work.

Ended up with a 2 cashes, a min in an early one and 2nd in my last one to finish, which resulted in a total profit of $59.74 from 13 games, which is a start i am delighted with.

A few notes, lost concentration in one hand late on, which resulted in me busting in 30th place which i am annoyed about. I was concentrating too much on the one that i was running deep in and didnt pay enough attention!

This was a big hand on the FT that I was not too sure about...

Seat 1: Valerik777 (41946 in chips)
Seat 3: Dejuanleduc (44027 in chips)
Seat 4: cChocho (58318 in chips)
Seat 5: Kovin1s (52432 in chips)
Seat 7: fatcatstu (28549 in chips)
Seat 8: Goran3189 (15842 in chips)
Seat 9: jachoo_m (28886 in chips)
Valerik777: posts the ante 250
Dejuanleduc: posts the ante 250

Goran3189: posts the ante 250
jachoo_m: posts the ante 250
Dejuanleduc: posts small blind 1250
cChocho: posts big blind 2500
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to fatcatstu [Qd Th]
Kovin1s: raises 2500 to 5000
fatcatstu: raises 23299 to 28299 and is all-in

Board ran out and i ended up 4 flushing him, any thoughts on my shove here?

Just put another 7 in, got 1 min cash out of it, with a bust out in 30th again when my AQ flopped a Q to go with his 7. Slightly disapointing to not get another bigger finish, but still a solid day.

New profit $44.90

Also dislike, especially with a 6bb stack to be the blinds in the next 4 hands.

Yeah i said to Rodders at the time, hated it pretty much immediately, especially when he showed JJ... Think that was pretty much the only glaring error I made in the tourny, which is good, but definitely got away with an utter stinker there.
