re: Poker & Backing!
I made what I felt like was a "ton" of money backing back in the day. It felt like I made about 25% of what I made from my own game. I'd take 1% of either of those buckets currently over what I have now.
Oh, and for the record, I ONLY did 50/50 splits (cuz I'm not an ash) and I NEVER required makeup, but I realized that some people had such pride that they basically needed me to take what was previously lost so I did.

I remember being contacted by a certain pro (I won't call him/her out) about backing for the first One Drop. He/She was under the impression that I was in a position to back them any amount even up to 100%. I laughed for a good few minutes and simply said, "Obviously we haven't talked much since Black Friday. Feel free to ask around about what happened."
Oddly enough, was not called for even 1% the 2nd time they did it. lol
