I've seen several staking + coaching offers on 2+2... it happens. Obviously most backers want to see their horses do well, so they provide some coaching at the same time. However, staking is a little bit different of a proposition. Plus usually players take up coaching to get some variance free income. Its so much easier to give advice than it is to go out & apply it. Dealing with the variance, stress, ect. that poker gives you ain't a walk in the park, especially at higher limits that most coaches play at.
I have a question for BW: Have you ever been coached?
