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

      Hello everyone,

      Due to popular demand I am happy to announce that I will now be able to offer Staking deals to Poker Strategy members that play cash games.

      Please fill in the application found at the bottom of this post or post below if you are interested in being staked.

      I am looking to build long lasting relationships.

      My offer:

      Bankroll for the games that we both agree on (I will provide advice and help on which games to play throughout the staking deal)
      Private and/or group hand history reviews
      Private or group coaching sessions
      Mental game help
      Volume and profit incentives / promos
      Access to more high quality coaches
      Additional materials such as articles, videos, etc (these materials will not be available anywhere else)

      What I need from you:

      Good references
      Good track record of being a winner at the limits that you want to be staked at
      Motivation and determination to improve
      A fair amount of time to dedicate to this relationship, both at the tables and outside of the tables
      Be able to speak and understand English and/or Romanian

      So, let's apply now:

      Go here and fill the application in.

      If you have any questions feel free to send me a private message.

      Good luck with it bogdan.

      Hope you don't mind the derail but just a couple of questions.

      Do you see this as being profitable long-term?

      Also, will it not be really difficult to get a decent calibre of person to work with long term.

      Like if someone is a decent winning player (what you are looking for) why would such an individual want to be staked (long term).

      Sure, they might be hard up short term, but long term I can't see any benefit for the individual constantly handing over a % of profits.

      Not to mention from your perspective to get that one decent motivated winning player, you might have to deal with a good number unmotivated/ lazy people and possible scammers along the way.

      Was just curious about all these points when I read your thread.

      All the best with the venture.

      Hey Larson,

      Those are very good questions indeed and I was wondering the same thing when I started playing poker. Why would anyone want to share their hard earned profits?

      Here are some reasons why this may be of interest to certain players (short term or long term)

      1) A player cannot build a bankroll due to real life requirements (constant withdrawals)
      2) A player does not want to have a lot of money locked up at once (a bankroll) and would prefer to use that money for other things
      3) A player wants more than just a bankroll such as coaching, support groups (skype, forums, etc), etc. - all the staking deals that we make come with coaching and support from our group of instructors as well as a chance to join skype groups (where like minded people share their experiences/hands/etc.)
      4) A player wants to reduce/eliminate the stress of managing a proper bankroll
      5) A player may not have the bankroll necessary to play at a limit that he/she thinks they can beat (can go with point 1 or 2)

      So essentially what I offer is a chance for a select few people to be part of a group of players that is focused on the same goals: to become better at the game and play with less stress (such as the stress of building/managing a bankroll or navigating the poker journey alone).

      I also offer the profit sharing coaching where the player uses their own bankroll but instead of paying for coaching upfront we instead split the profits that the player makes (as a form of payment).

      Staking and Profit Sharing Coaching are not for everyone but a lot of players have either started their professional career or continued their professional career using one of these methods.

      Best regards,

      Bogdan

      Hey Bogdan,

      I have a few questions concerning the deals. You await from the players you stake to be winning players at the stakes you offer them staking which is of course very reasonable. Mutually if you are offering coaching and staking I would apprechiate to see some proof that you are a winning player by yourself at todays games and information which stakes do you play and are cappable to coach? I'm asking because I didn't found the info from here nor from your coaching thread.

      Best,

      Tukioppilas

      Hi Tuki,

      We offer both regular staking (no coaching) and staking with coaching. It's up to the player to decide what he/she opts for. Once a player makes it past the first couple of steps of the application and is paired with a coach he/she would be able to find any information needed from that coach.

      Best regards,
      Bogdan
