General staking info?
So I've never seriously played for money opting to spend the last year heavily studying poker with the assistance of my best friend that happens to be in my opinion one of the best players in the world's (finished top 100 of WSOP
main event). So i believe i am now knowledged enough to go for a deep run in some real tourneys. With my friends advice I will likely be attending Run it Up Reno in October and playing the lower buy in $85 tourneys (not the $565 main event). My friend mentioned he'd likely buy a bit of every tourney, and honestly I'd be so happy if I could around 80% staked.
Now the only thing is I have zero big wins because I've never bought into one. I've never deposited more than twenty dollars into online because while i took the studying seriously I knew the key to profit was a larger investment. I'm finally ready to give this a real chance.
That being said I'm kicking my competitiveness into hyper drive, studying 50+ hours a week and playing 3-5$ buy in tourneys with the hope to back up my wild claim that I am actually someone who takes this game very seriously and not some degen.
Any advice on achieving my goal to be staked would be much appreciated.
