You play poker for others money?
What is this shit?
He's saying the guy was meant to front him the money, from what I can tell.
Along these lines.
1. Finance a good poker player 50/50 for a tournament out of his price range.
2. Do well (Hopefully)
3. Win loads of money and split it down the middle.
Not uncommon way of trying to boost your earnings for some poker players.
Although 'front' the money seems a little inaccurate as it seems he paid it all upfront hoping his other guy would stump up the money later :S
Be carefull with online transaction! You may be tricked!
Yea pretty much. Stakers invest into players and you share the profits, usually 50/50 and return the staked amount at the end.
If you lose money you get into makeup which means you have to keep playing until you get out of it or the staker decides to end the deal and take the losses. There are plenty of reasons for staking to exist and i have always made some good profits and so have my backers, the current deal just started out and variance is being a huge bi*** atm, the downside of pokerz
Yup it is actually a lot more common than you would expect, a guy even went on dragons den with the offer a couple of series back.
The thing is when money like this is involved you have to deal assuming zero trust, you cannot expect him to pay after he knows its a loss, would you have paid him if you had won and he hadn't put the cash up before hand?
Indeed, OP certainly should have got the money upfront or found another backer/taken the risk himself.
I guess he did take the risk himself, he just didn't know about it until after :silly:
"would you have paid him if you had won and he hadn't put the cash up before hand?"
yea i would of course, otherwise it would have been a scam the other way around and my self-esteem and reputation are worth more to me than any amount of money. Besides that the thing is he probably would have sent the money if i started out with some winnings.
lol he lost 4 k in 2 hours PLAYING 1on1 and he played the wrong limit- I told him not to play it - he did... The worst things is he went higher up in the limits after losing.
I asked him if he tilts? He said no.... HE did ... 4 k loosing is the prove plus moving up in the limits.
Its true that i wanted to stake him - But i told him NOT TO tilt. Start smaller limit and move up was the plan. He played higher as told.
I asked for the hand history to see if it was just bad luck - it wasnt... He didnt even tell me that he played 1on1 and the wrong limit....So jeah i dont stake him , when he doesnt even keep his promise on the first few hours....I told him to take a break after losing a few hundred. HE DID NOT!! He flamed the people in the chat...
Post the handhistory .... should be prove enough.
Gorush, about 50% of the losses were 1on1 and it were on the limits we agreed on, i don't know what your plan is by making up lies now - i said by myself that i won't play 1on1 unless it's a bad player, which was the case for the guy i played. I even sent you by mail that i was willing to take those 50% of losses anyway (which i wouldn't even have to - look up the convo on skype) which accured in 1on1. You didn't answer it, removed me from skype, ignored all my messages afterwards.
"I told him to take a break after losing a few hundred"
Straight up lie that doesn't even make any sense at all. I allways trashtalk at the tables which doesn't mean i'm playing worse or i'm in such anger.
Hope you feel proud of yourself Gorush. You vanished after i started out with a huge downswing because of variance and not bad play - i'm just lucky i found you here and you have to respond and make up lies to safe face.
Tell me why you didn't answer when i told you i was willing to take up 50% on my own. Even if i played other limits which wasn't the case and i would pay them on my own, does that give you a free shot to just disappear and not care about the other losses?
"to see if it was just bad luck - it wasnt..."
lol you have to be kidding me, try using a EV calculator with sklansky bucks, and try to figure out how the game works, you have no clue and keep making up random lies.
"The worst things is he went higher up in the limits after losing."
lol right..., eric served you well, karma i guess. scammer getting scammed, how pathetic.
removing me from skype / ignoring me and making up your own mind that i broke the agreement, which i didn't, speaks for itself.
HE BROKE the agreement upfront - so IT would be dumb to stake him afterall..
Another fact: I wanted to stake him a lot more then we agreed on about 7.5 times more. I Told him" have a backup" it is always good. AND That you need that.
YOu can be the best player in the world and still loose. BE sure to make a BACKUP
Altough he had a backup for the smaller limits he kept playing higher limits...so there was basicly no backup for a "bad run"...
Dude if you want to play with the money from other people YOU HAVE TO TAKE responsibility!!! LOSING ALL MONEY IN A FEW HOURS - THIS IS A JOKE!
EVERYONE on this planet can double or triple the money in a short amount of time - but to KEEP it going and NOT losing it is the art!
EDIT: And @ everyone who doesnt understand ! I DIDNT STEAL or TAKE ANY MONEY from him.
HE LOST his money in a stupid way .... (otherwise he had some left - thats why i say stupid)
and HE WANTS TO COVER IT WITH MY Investment. ITS LIKE INVESTING to LEHMAN BROTHERS or into a BROKEN CAR..... SO basicly he is complaining that he DIDNT HAD THE CHANCE TO LOOSE MY MONEY !!!
Even if i made a mistake (which i didn't) you're not supposed to just vanish - you wouldn't do the same if you actually sent me the money or would you? It's so clear what you're doing. You scammed me and the others and you didn't type a word to anyone of us.
Can't post the Screenshot i made from my database because of posting rules and new account. That would have helped. It shows that i played inbetween our agreement.
In the copied convo of Skype it says i was allowed to play 10/20 up to 30/60 in limits, i played 9 hands of 30/60, won $20 and the rest was 15/30, totaly within our agreement.
It wasn't 100% clear if i was allowed to play 1on1 or not, yet i offered to just take the losses by myself which actually is a gentle move. He didn't even respond to that.
It's so obvious you're just trying to dodge some losses by making up false statements. Keeping me ignored on Skype and not answering my mails might be a hint?
"HE LOST his money in a stupid way .... (otherwise he had some left - thats why i say stupid)"
And some sentences above you claim the world best player can lose, which actually is the case. Besides that i wasn't even staked with a full bankroll, so there was a pretty fair chance i might go bust with it.
I think it doesn't stand up for discussions who of us has more experience in the game i'm playing. 4 years regular poster on 2+2 vs a 2 post? 1mio hands vs 2 sessions?
It's funny you want to judge on my playstyle. Sorry to the others if i sound arrogant here, but who wouldn't if someone with way less experience tries to make you look like a degen gambler instead of someone who is winning for years.
"HE WANTS TO COVER IT WITH MY Investment. ITS LIKE INVESTING to LEHMAN BROTHERS or into a BROKEN CAR..... SO basicly he is complaining that he DIDNT HAD THE CHANCE TO LOOSE MY MONEY !!!"
Really proofs that you have no clue about poker and it's variance. Everyone has swings, yea horrible swings way worse than mine and yet they are winning players, like myself.
I played about 900 hands that session - a solid sample size which reduces variance is 30k hands. You really have no clue what you're talking about, making up lies to save face because your reputation here means something to you.
tl;dr: Gorush claims he isn't supposed to keep his word on the sealed deal because A) i played bad B) i didn't play withing our agreement (which i actually did). Besides that he removed me from Skype, didn't talk a word to any of the other Stakers - which he basically scammed as much as me.
Another thing : I wrote with him only a few hours or so - I asked him a few questions: HE answered all: The most important part was "DO you tilt"- what are you doing WHEN.... I though that he had a BRAIN . Meaning that he cares for the money that were given to him.... LOSING ALL MONEY is proof enough - that this addict is looking for excuses.
I watched him a bit playing - after i saw a few questionable moves - i wanted to ask him anyways for the handhistory.
LOSING 2 k or so I would understand - BUT ALL ??? REALLY?????
I told him the next day to take a break - Then he says He lost all - he "has" to take a break until he has my money.
Best joke ever.....
AFTER I saw his LIES and addiction etc. he OFFERS to cover some losses - NOT BEFORE.
I have to trust this guy i never met before with MY Money - SO NOONE can expect me to invest in him after seeing - what he is made of.
I dont want to waste anymore time chatting with you. I will contact an admin and let him decide.
All things I wrote are all true - You are twisting things to your "favor"
Go to therapy for your addiction problem ... I really mean it.
PS: You never really agreed that the ACTION will BEGIN NOW OR MONDAY -- I offered it to you - that is true. But you never said yes.
Fact is: I really am happy that i did not invest - EVEN If you would have turned it around - You cleary have a problem....YOu want more and more - you will never stop. thats ADDICTION.
Can't post links or screenshots because of limitations on the new account here, otherwise i would.
"Luckily i didnt invest - this way i could save some money. Thats true."
Yea that was your thought process exactly and that's why you're a scammer even if it's hard for you to understand for whatever reason. I told you that 100bb swings are normal or possible and now you're acting like i pressed buttons without any thought and lost on purpose (makes sense for a winningplayer right).
At least you were able to write down what your intention was afterall.
Hannes stated that we could agree on a stop-loss where i would move down. This was obviously more meant for 30/60. 15/30 is almost equal to 10/20 because of it's better rake structure. Whatever we never agreed on anything regarding that, it was just a thought of Hannes and not you and you didn't respond to that. Besides that where would you want me to move to? 5/10 with 4bb/100 rake? You have no idea about the game like i already mentioned, none.
"after i saw a few questionable moves - i wanted to ask him anyways for the handhistory"
You didn't ask me after any moves, you asked me after i told you that i lost it so you could look for excuses to make a run.
I still don't get it. You don't understand the game and yet you keep trying to judge on my play. It's not possible for you, no matter how hard you try. It's like if i would walk over to a doctor and tell him how he has to do his stuff, just retarded.
"GoRushbhw: du wirst schon das richtige finden" - that's you stating that you would trust me to do the right thing. I did the right thing and it went as bad as it could, unluckily, yet the swing was something that was able to happen even without bad play.
"I AM 100% sure that you would have lost 50k that day"
What? Could you exaggerate any more? I dropped 130BB, 100BB swings are normal, it was more because of the higher variance of 1on1.
"THe handhistory is proof enough"
I even posted the handhistory on 2+2 myself because it was kind of a joke how bad i was running and not how i was playing.
"You clearly are an addict gambler"
yea clearly an addict(rofl) gambler that one of the top3 backers invested into me two times and made decent profits both times. I started out with a similiar swing there btw. but guess what? He didn't cry and accused me of being an addict gambler and just resent and we made our money in the long run - and that's what poker is about, the long run.
I'm not sure why i posted all of this while you already claimed that your intention was scamming after you've seen the losses. You made it up like i was playing bad and played out of the range of our agreement which all wasn't the case but in the end you're just what you are, a thief.
i have this strange urge to go to the track... anyone want to invest some money while I pick a pony that can win a race?
I posted the handhistory. Everyone can see it and judge himself.
You dont admit making a BIG mistake by throwing away the money when you are tilted....
btw. you said you never had a 100 bb swing - now you say you have... you trap yourself dude.
You are really a fucking liar.....
I wrote an admin - let him decide.
