re: Poker & Urgent: What to ask sponsor for?
Yeah what dakoto-xx says is true it varies widely.
However, I do know an ex pokerstars
online pro who was literally just bought into every UKIPT main event every year at like 4 stops per year at £700+ a time, no idea if he was on a salary though too but yeah I think asking for full buy-in is fair enough but he had to pay his own travel and hotels that was the downside to it.
Because they are asking for her to propose a deal and they will negotiate, just go for what you can just try add a hotel stay in there. So I'd just start with Full buy-in to the event, + hotel and they might just say we can do buy-in etc rather than if you ask for just buy-in they might say "We will pay only 50% of buy-in" Certainly no harm in proposing more when it's going to be negotiated anyway, that's the idea.
Agree with debs too, certainly wouldn't want to take less than 50%.
