      I have read and accepted the staking rules. By posting in this thread, every member acknowledges the same.

      Hello,

      I would like to get staked for 3.5$ 9man STT at pokerstars. 300$.

      I am an old member of pokerstrategy, but wasn’t active in forums. My career started with free 50$ capital at Mansion poker, I lost them. After a while I got a letter from pokerstrategy that they are giving me extra 50$ to Party poker. I lost them too, wasn’t good student that time (it was three years ago) ((: About a year with no poker, then first experience with live poker in native casino (mostly two table tournaments). In live event won ticket to online freerool (olympic-online, I-poker network), finished second (dam it…still remember, had JJ and lost to 99, 4bet him preflop and moved allin (1/2pot) after he checked 789 flop), anyway, won 180$ and started to play online again. I’m not very good in cash games, but not bad in tournaments, so played 5$ STT (nickname tardytojass I-poker network), after a while wantent to climb up the limits, but the traffic was good only in 10$ don’s. Didn’t like them (1$ rake with no rake back and almost no vip system is too much), so I tooked my money and moved to cake poker, because of 33% rake back. But where were very little traffic in sng, so I had to play cash (in which I’m not very good) and mtt’s, which is not the best in cake poker too. I cashed out about 700$ (was cashing out everything above 300$) before I lost my bankroll.
      So, came back to play live games ( mostly two table tournaments) in native casino, ( my stats: http://www.olympic-casino.com/poker/index.php?op=user&uid=36187&id=10702 ), was the best in 2011 03 01 – 2011 04 30 period., got some kind of trophy ((:
      So, a month ago I got another letter from pokerstrategy, that they are giving one more 50$, this time to WillHill (nicke name : tardytas). Got it, was using it to learn cash games, had quick upswing to 100$, and quick downswing to 3$. So now rebuilding bankroll playing STT (it’s 15$ and growing!!! :D ).
      What my plans:
      Now I want to take poker seriously, and become a pro in STT (no cash games, thanks (: )
      My inspiration is “begalybe”, a guy from same town, with whom I first played in live event two years ago, he was nothing special, last time two month ago (got lucky with my AQ against his AK)., and now he is ranked word number 1 any stakes STT, climbed all the way from 5$ STT. (Already watched all his STT lessons, I will buy his couching in future).
      Now I’m learning to use new tool (for me) in poker - holdem manager (15d trial), will need about a week to get used to it, so 55$ from staked amount will go to buy it.

      Deal:
      300$ for me to play 3,5$ STT and to buy HM.
      The deal is 50-50 with a stakeback till I give you back the stake.
      Where are two 50% shares (150$ and 150$), priority to a person who wants to take both of them.
      Money will be transfered to pokerstars id “tramdytojas”, or netteler (can’t write e-mail here).


      I need a stake to save time reaching higher limits, maybe 7$ tournaments would be better for me to play, but I don’t want to take big stake, so will start 3.5$. Now I’m playing about 100 tournaments a week, I will increase the number to 150-200 tournaments per week.
      My stats:
      Cake poker: tardytojas
      I-poker: tardytojas (old)
      tardytojass
      tardytas
      pokerstars: tramdytojas (was trying to play turbo mt sng, turbo not for me)

      Have some time, I don’t need quick answer from stakers, won’t start to play for a week or two till get used to HM.

      Hi there tardytojas,

      You may want to review your application.

      Here's a few things I didn't like and I don't think backers will enjoy :

      1) Using the money of the stake to buy HM doesn't sound right. What will the backers gain from this?

      2) You should try to include a lifetime graph if possible of the stake requested or any graphs that you could provide.

      3)
      and now he is ranked word number 1 any stakes STT, climbed all the way from 5$ STT.


      I don't want to be mean but saying he is #1 in the world isn't that a bit far fetched?
      (Anyways we don't have to debate about that but it's just seems like a lie to me :P )

      Good luck anyways and please consider what I said.

      Regards

      Simon

      I think it is more correctly to say: Ranked 1 in Holdem 9 to 10 Players $36-$100 Total Profit 2011 Leaderboard (Sharkscope inf.)

      Thanks for the tips.
      My graph playing in those limits are:



      (Last 100 games was 10$ don's, didn't like them, then cash out)

      So, for that guy "begalybe", try to search him in sharscope on fulltilt, near his name you will see a star, where will be written:
      Current
      Ranked 1 in Holdem 9 to 10 Players $36-$100 Total Profit 2011 Leaderboard
      Ranked 2 in Holdem 9 to 10 Players Any Stakes Total Profit 2011 Leaderboard
      Ranked 20 in Holdem 9 to 10 Players $5.01-$15 Average Profit Leaderboard

      So, yes, now he is ranked two in any stakes, probably because fulltilt is down(:

      P.S. About HM, staker will get his all 300$ back + 50% winings. So, it not big difference for staker if i use all 300$ for sng, o only 245$ and 55$ to HM, (60BI will be enough for me), he will get it back anyway. But i thing investing those $ into HM will be +EV.
