      Hi My name is Paul and I have played poker for about 3 years. Mostly cash games with a mix of Full Ring and 6max.

      Last year I moved out to Budapest so that I could afford to live solely from poker and really focus on my game. I have mostly been playing NL50 with some NL100.

      My reason for requesting staking is that I am having trouble moving up as I cant seem to build a sufficient BR because of the need to cash out consistently. I dont really think im playing optimally at the moment (despite great results) as Im constantly under pressure to succeed to pay my living costs.

      Currently im in the middle of pretty big downswing (-40bis under ev) and Im worried that my BR cant really sustain my withdrawals and because of thiis I dont feel that im playing my best. I took a big risk coming here to budapest as I have a very small roll but I was confident I could do it (with my track record) and I have been here a year but havent really been able to grow my roll and move up, just survive and pay the bills.

      Also, Im finding that since moving here I have become a little isolated and I feel that my game will improve a great deal with a little support from a backer as I dont have any poker playing friends etc.

      So Im not just looking for a backer but also some kind of ongoing support where I can talk about the game, especially the mental game.


      I have played more than 2 million hands but only have this years data available (plus my old FT PTR graph) as below:

      I am looking for backing for NL100 and can guarantee a minimum of 30k hands a month (usually 60k plus).

      FTP and this years positional stats with WR

      Hi Hackett!
      Are you looking for one big backer or do you sell parts? How much for those then and how are the winnings/losses distributed?

      Best of luck anyhow

      Hi Zero, I am not entirely sure how staking works in parts for cash games so really im looking for 1 backer, also because I want the backer to be somewhat active with me and not just provide a stake and be done.

      Im happy for 50/50 split of profits/losses with a 70/30 split of RB/Bonuses in my favour (the latter because RB/bonuses would be my safeguard each month to cover my monthly expenses) but this is totally negotiable.

      Paul
