    Let me start by saying that i am a winning poker player and i hold every kind of proof in my hands to show that.

    Some facts:

    Total Prizes: $121K
    Total Profit: $24K
    ROI: 24%
    ITM (in the money): 14%


    I started playing poker part time two years ago. I play both offline and online but the biggest success i had, was online. I have made more than $120K in the last two years playing part time and this simply means playing 1-2 days per week.

    Whenever i won a tournament i used to withdraw money and use them as living expenses or pay credit cards, loans, trips and anything else you can imagine. I should also point that i have a regular 9-5 job which didnt allow me to play full time as most tournaments start late in the afternoon and finish early in the morning. My current job makes me some money which is enough to pay bills and stuff but im planning to focus more on poker playing 1-2 tournaments per day that fit my schedule.

    What is the problem?

    Right now i dont have the bankroll to start and therefore im looking for one investor or more to be part of this.

    So lets get down to the details:

    1) Poker Platform: Pokerstars

    2) Bankroll: $5K-$10K

    3) Tournaments: 55+R & 109+R

    A bankroll of $5K would allow me to play only the 55+R while a $10K bankroll will allow me to play the 109+R as well.

    4) Percentages: 57% (me) - 43% (you)

    5) Usual first position prizes: 55+R (1st place: $12-15K) & 109+R (1st place: $20-25K) while on Sundays the 1st places pay as much as $90K!!

    The main point would be to keep a steady bankroll while split the winnings. We could also re-invest some of the winnings to grow the bankroll to a new level and add more tournaments in the future, especially on Sundays.

    Results & Winnings will be distributed daily after the end of each session. There are also sites that keep a record of each poker players performance, so you will easily know the results and winnings after every session.

    For general questions, please post here so everyone can take a look.

    In case you are interested, i kindly request to PM me with contact details so we can further discuss as well as have a look at some proof in case you need it.

    If you are really good, apply to a room to play for them professionally..

    You cannot apply to play professionally. They choose which player to sign.

    A very well known case is the one of Jimmy Fricke. He sent an email to Fult Tilt to get sponsored for the Aussie Millions and they replied negatively. He ended up winning the Main Event..

    In any case, im just looking for investors for a poker venture. I would prefer to deal with only one but i understand that a $5K-$10K can be alot and therefore i will accept smaller investors.

    Interested.

    PM me a link to your OPR profile please, as well as where are you based and how often you can / want to play (1 tourney per day? 2? 3?)

    Cheers,
    Bryan

    Playing tournaments in Pokerstars is dumb.
    There are other low end poker rooms to kill the fish at.

    Just an advise.

    A part of your initial post (now edited out) pretty much summed up the whole post. It was:

    Show me another poker room that runs $50 and $100 rebuy tournaments CONSTANTLY and actually gets more than 50 players in each.

    Sure, there's Full Tilt (level of play very similar to PS). Apart from them you've got Ongame rooms and iPoker (Playtech) but both of them are rather low when it comes to tournament traffic.

    Fricke didn't win the Aussie Millions, he was beat by Gus Hansen. I date a sponsored poker player right now so I am quite familiar with the process and how it goes because of what she went through.

    If you are as good as you say you are, send me your PS screen name and we can talk about it.

    Poker could be very tricky.. i've been playing for a while and i love poker.. play pokerstars and fulltilt... the thing is you can go in a really good run but then things can go downhill very fast.. one time i started on a monday with $34 dollars and by thursday i had $9k and guess what, by the next day it was gone.. i guess it all depends on what type of player you are etc.. but investing on a poker player i dont think is too reliable

    Hello guys,

    Sorry for the late reply. Im based in Greece and because of time difference you easily understand my long absence.

    Of course i can prove my stats. I will send a PM to each of you with me screenname and we can also chat through the PS platform in order to prove to you that im the guy im saying im.

    As to the fellow that asked why i dont have money to play on my own, i think i cleared this at the very first post.

    I used to withdraw money won to live and support my lifestyle. I used to travel a lot and it costs. Money from my current job doesnt allow such expenses and therefore i never had a good bankroll.

    I have been running pretty good. I also know and keep notes of most of the players that play these tournaments on Stars and also reward is far greater. I agree that competition is alot tougher but my playing style is solid.

    He made $120k and couldn't save 5-10k.

    Sell that car and ride the bus till you can afford it again man.

    Why work for somebody else's money?

    Thats my mistake. He came up second but still it was really funny that he applied for a sponsorship, got denied and came second.

    Have PMed you.

    Hello clade,

    As i said i didnt have the option to save money. As soon as i got some i used to withdraw them. I ll send you a link with my stats and you will easily understand that i wasnt playing frequently even after some wins.

    I was always trying to start from the bottom again once i had withdrawn the money but that is not possible every time.

    My job doenst allow me to raise such a capital to play on my own.

    Investing can be done through several ways such as Chipmeup or directly through PS platform while also you can inform PS of our staking deal in order to be reassured that your share will end up in your hands.

    I dont care if i win the Sunday Million for $200K and have to send 43% to you. My only concern is to get my bankroll to a very high level where the possibilities of busting would be minimal.

    To answer a previous question publicly:

    The optimal for me would be to play the following tournaments daily:

    22 1R 1A
    55+R
    109+R

    And the majors on Sunday such the Warm Up, Million etc. Of course that will heavily depend on the bankroll.
