[Offer] Micro SNG Starter Stakes on Stars

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

      This starter stake is for you to play any one of the following:

      :spade: 20x $0.50 45man turbo SNG's on stars
      :heart: 20x $0.50 90man turbo SNG's on stars
      :diamond: 40x $0.25 45man SNG's on stars
      :club: 40x $0.25 90man SNG's on stars

      The stake is $5 (which is 1/2 of your Buy In's). So you play the 2nd half with the profit or until you bust.

      Games are to be completed within 48 hours unless otherwise agreed upon.

      The profit split works on a level system as follows (everyone starts at Level 1).
      To advance to the next level, you need to triple your Bankroll (so end the stake with $15). Any player who makes profit can re-apply for the same level.

      1. 70/30 split with Makeup
      2. 60/40 split with Makeup
      3. 50/50 split with Makeup
      4. 40/60 split with Makeup
      5. 30/70 split with Makeup

      The first player to reach level 5 will also receive a $11 MTT stake of their choice at 30/70 (NO MU - this is a bonus stake for you). Any players who reach level 5 will also have the option to discuss either a longer term stake at this level, or moving up to bigger Buy In Games.

      The Rules.
      You must be searchable at all times.
      You must provide your OPR or PokerProLabs link in your POST, not in your SIG.
      You must start your post below with "Fo Shizzle" so that I know you have read this!
      Rail must be easy to read and follow or in the format:
      01. # | Rank: 0/45 | Prize: $0.00 | bust hand
      I reserve the right to not re-stake any players moving up in levels.
      You cannot play these games on Pokerstars for anyone else or on your own dime during the stake.

      What is makeup?

      Makeup means that you are basically playing a continuous stake for the staker and just gets added on to the stake back (SB).
      Lets say you lost $100 on a stake at 50%/50% split, but then won $5,000 on a $100 stake at 50%/50% that you ran for the same staker.
      Normally you would send the money like this (with no makeup owed): $5,000-$100(SB) = $4900
      $4,900 x 50% = $2,450
      Player get $2,450
      Staker gets $2,450+$100(SB)= $2,550

      But with $100 makeup you do this:
      $5,000-$100(SB)-$100(makeup) = $4,800
      $4,800 x 50% = $2,400
      Player gets $2,400
      Staker gets $2,400+$100(SB)+$100(makeup) = $2,600

      You see this situation is exactly the same as someone running a $200 stake losing the first $100 then entering a $100 tourney winning 5k and shipping the staker his stakeback and winnings?
      The math is exactly the same the BR is $0.00 because you used the last $100 to enter the tournament and win 5k.

      The stake was for $200 so:
      $5,000-$200(SB)= $4,800
      $4,800 x0.5 = $2,400
      Player gets $2,400
      Staker gets $2,400+$200(SB)= $2,600

      Makeup is always paid out of the stake profits before any split is done, what this means is that before the profit is split the makeup will be paid back and then the rest (if any) will be split per the backers cut %.

      PokerProLabs -

      Graph is looking dire at the moment due to being on a massive down swing.. If that puts you of then please just let me know, otherwise im more than willing to carry on talks.. as i personaly belive that although results speak volume, that a good poker player is what your after for a longer term investment, and not simply to make $15?

      added you in community.

      and you are correct, the whole idea of this stake is to find people who are willing to play within BRM on a staked roll, and who can show over time that they should be playing larger games. i am more than happy to stake a player as high as their ability allows them to go :)

      Fo' shizzle.

      Doesn't look so good, and isn't that good but I consistently work on my game and am happy to give my all. I am quite capable of putting in the volume needed. For the most part I am a break even player who is still trying to learn enough to gain a total edge.

      Never actually applied for a stake before so go easy on me... >_<
