      Well, I don't play at full tilt. I mostly play on IPoker network.
      Won a seat to ECOOP II event #6 $200 000 guaranteed (shorthanded)

      What do you mean by staking? Were you betting that he would lose, or yould finish later in the tournament?

      chenny , my roll on stars & my 5 Ipoker & Prima account all started from selling 7 million playmoney chips few years ago for $70 and built it up playing 1c/2c & $1.10 sng on stars
      as for Staking a good player for 13 FTOPS events did not think it a bad risk

      arjun2001 , Staking players to play big events is pretty normal but risky in poker , at least two of the last 4 Main Event at the WSOP were staked

      You pay buyin for tournament, he plays. Winnings are usually split 50-50 or 60-40 in favor of the guy who staked. Depends on agreement

      staking good players for big tournaments is almost always +EV, i'm not doubting that! :P
