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

      Here are some results first:




      Stars (all)


      Stars (Scheduled MTT only)


      2015 on Stars


      Some bigger cashes incl in past Sunday Million Anniversary, winning Hot $2.20 and FT Hot $22

      Selling up to 60% of Anniversary Sunday Million at 1.16.


      $5 = 2% (min)
      $12.5 = 5%
      $25 = 10%
      $50 = 20%

      Rules:
      -if time constraints allow, will consult backers for any deal making and use majority opinion to decide
      -one-off stake.
      - if money is not received before MTT commences, you do not have action and any money sent after MTT begins will be refunded.

      I believe in having decent % of self in tourney because if you believe you're a winning player you'd have as much of yourself as you can sensibly afford to. I'd honestly like to have 100% of myself but BR doesn't allow, if I don't sell 60% I still might use non BR money and still play since Anniversary editions of SM is such insanely good value at this high of a BI.

      I played last years Sunday Million anniversary (placed 2320/50432 for $403.45) , the prize pool attracts tons of fish and I am confident my expected ROI will be much higher than 16% however I don't have huge MTT sample size as was previously a cash game player so I think a lower markup is fairer.

      Recently been playing MTT on WPN after quitting cash, WPN profit is a lot higher than it says because I won satellite and got $540 seat to MDS, played it, and it didn't count satellite as +$540, but counted playing it as -$540 despite this I still have $240 profit from 21 MTTs on this site, so you can imagine I'm running and playing pretty well on there so far (had 4 final tables, with 1 first and 2 seconds)

      Am comfortable playing higher buy in tournaments, have played SM several times including non-anniversary (they're definitely way less soft when its not anniversary), and the $540 Million Dollar Sunday on WPN.

      haven't done a stake before but feedback can go here afterwards. :f_cool:

      Stars (all)


      Stars (Scheduled MTT only)


      WPN (mtt only)

      Recently been playing MTT on Black Chip, won about $600 in 20 mtts (average buy in ~$10, obviously running hot too) with 3 or 4 final tables not just 1 big bink. The graph doesn't look that great cos I satted into a $540 MDS on points, and so there's a $540 drop, even though I won the $540 seat which isn't showing up as +$540, which is kinda annoying.

      I will be playing this ( and possibly sunday storm) and will therefore be playing far fewer tables than most of the sunday grinders too which should lead to better decisions.

      Despite the smallish sample size I think there's enough big wins and FTs that people can be confident I'm gonna be +EV in a donk infested SM and if not then don't buy. :f_drink:

      Sweet, reserved.

      Don't send yet though. Will see how much % gets booked in a few days and decide what to do after that.

      It means that Gary wants to buy 1% ('one ball') of your SM but give you not money but a 1% share in his own SM (the same tourney). So neither of you will send anything beforehand; if he cashes for more than you, he'll send you 1% of the difference; likewise, if you cash bigger than him, you'll send him 1% of the difference. That will allow to reduce the needed volume of player transfers.

      Rational Services have the same 6 days to fix the lag at their servers, but I doubt they'll manage to do it in time :f_rolleyes:

      I fully understand metza's decision to cancel the Stars grind - it's just too risky.
