Im pretty sure im not breaking any of the rules around deez parts, but I want to offer a backing deal for people here at CardsChat. Now let me clarify that I'm not begging for money because what I'm asking for I will already have in my bankroll.

so you may ask yourself why take backers if you dont need them right?
well the truth is I enjoy having people back me and I think it would be fun to have you all have something invested in my tournaments.

so here is what I propose it will cost you $10 to own 5% of my play through 10 $5 tournaments. If I get more then 5 backers then the amount of tourneys go up. With 5 backers that puts the total of tourney buyins up to 10 with each additional backer after 5 you add 2 tourneys. So if we do the math with 10 backers you will get a piece of me through 20 different tourneys. I cap the shares at 10 because I want 50% for myself and only 1 share for person so everyone has a chance to get one, if they dont all sell out I will offer multiple ones.

oh yea this is on pokerstars also.

BONUS: you are going to own me through the whole series so any tourneys I play during that series is also added in the backing. Let me explain so say I have not completed all the tourneys in said agreement. If I happen to join a $3 buy in event and make say 1k in it then you would get 5% of that event also. So you see with your $10 investment in me you could in theory end up getting way way over 20 tourneys.

Im only offering this to cardschat people right now but If I don't sell out 10 shares then I will offer them to other forums I frequent. I would rather not because I would like to keep it on cardschat exclusively.

if you are interested in this send $10 to stormswa on pokerstars and leave a message in this thread saying you sent. When money is received I will leave a message here and add your name to the list.

Im closing this and starting in 1 week or when it sells out whichever comes 1st.


I think I pretty much have covered everything but if you have any questions please ask.

I was thinking about doing something like this to bump my buy-in limit up. Then I went on a horrible downswing and decided not to drag anybody in with me :p Good luck :D

ty,

I tried to make a real favorable deal for my backers and I think this one is very good. $10 for 20+ tourneys sounds good to me.

plus you get backing back 1st then 50%.

so say i make like 1k total, I would pay out the $100 to my backers 1st and then split the $900 to $450 and you would get 5% of $450 soooo $22.50 profit.

Admin piece first...
Well it sort of skirts the forum's rules. But being that you are a member of six months and regular poster with over 850 posts (many in HA/strategy), I don't see this specifically as spam/advertising or money begging (and even if I did, it isn't in a malicious way :)). And I'm pretty sure this isn't a scam of any sort.

Of course there is the CardsChat disclaimer...CardsChat/Admin/Moderators assume no liability for ANYTHING related to this at all. If Stormswa up and runs away or fails to win money or anything, that is tough luck but is on you as an individual with no one else to blame. Your money, your risk, your choice.

Note if any brand new and/or unestablished members try this, you will not get this benefit of the doubt. k thx. Longer term membership/posting/regularity has its privileges.

so say i make like 1k total, I would pay out the $100 to my backers 1st and then split the $900 to $450 and you would get 5% of $450 soooo $22.50 profit.

Now, having said that, I've seen you play and looked back in PT at my hands on you, so sure, I'm in.

I assume then you will start a single new thread for tracking all of the tournaments that you enter and the results? Also, I'd like to ask that the HH for tournaments covered in this backing agreement be made available to backers (an only backers) upon their individual requests via PM. Reasonable?

yes

that can be arranged and most likely will video each of them

above

of course I cant guarantee anything but I will play my best.

I was thinking about doing this exact same thing, but assumed it was against forum rules. So it is OK JD?

If so then I'll make a similar thread Stormswa and basically take your system of numbers. It seems very fair to me.

yea I knew i was skating the rules but thought since everyone knows I would never do anything like take their money and run or screw anyone over and people have backed me before it would be no problem.

I don't mind if you copy.

Hm, well, I would put in some money for backing, but I don't have $10 in PS jsut yet.

Man, wish you gave more than a week, I won't have money again until probably the 11th :(

Well, I didn't intend to copy you storms, just had a similar idea a while back, but never posted thinking it was against the rules. But I guess your system saves me the time with coming up with another one.

If you would rather that I wait until the heat dies down in your thread, or you get your 10 Max backers to post my thread, then I will. Or if you don't mind then I'll post it now.

But if you do, and don't want me to post yet, then I'll wait, since you did post first.

I'd think you'd have a better chance if you waited, Estelle. Then the same people might be interested again, whereas right now they might not want to do two at the same time.

(Edit: mind you, people like to gamble, so who knows. You could end up racing each other which would be fun to follow too)


Plus, if storm does well, you'll have lots of offers.
