I'm looking for advice, and offers. Just completed a 4 month stake and now completing a small Micro Millions package.
Happy to do either in the future, and have put together a weekly schedule of $1-$11, working out at $400 a week and have a bit of interest in selling that on a 50/50 profit split in 10% blocks at $40-10%.
I'm kinda new to doing this on a regular basis, so any advice, questions, or more details needed feel free to ask. Thanks for reading.
Here's my full details and links to results both live and on line.

Why do you want to be staked?
In the last 3 years I’ve taken the game a lot more seriously, have been active on forums including 2+2, pocket fives and blondepoker and lots on the gutshot forum in the past. Mainly to improve my game, and am a member of poker strategy, at platinum level, I spend a couple of hours a few times a week watching strategy videos there.
Ideally I would like a sponsorship deal including some coaching to enable me to move up levels, and look to take advantage of my experience in live game situations ( I dealt both cash and tournaments at the highest level around Europe and the UK) , which I hope to exploit at some time in the future.
I have a lot of spare time but not a huge bank roll; living half my time abroad is costly, so I want to reduce my variance, which along with coaching is the main reason I want to be staked.
Your goals for being staked:
To keep my ROI over 100%
To move up in stakes and continue to look at live events, where I’ve had some success in the past. To continue to work on my game, and look to playing full time.
Describe your playing history and if you have been staked/coached before:
I’ve been playing poker for the last 8 years, and have taken it seriously enough to read some books and join forums.I was offered an online cash game deal on gutshot poker 5 years ago, at this point I spent a lot of time studying the game. This was successful in that I made money, but was not as payouts were not made, and it basically turned out to be a rake enerating job for gutshot online. Some have still not been paid.
I’ve had some large wins online for stakes played, and also cashed twice in the Sunday Million.
I've been staked for the last 3 months, and am in profit over this time. This staking deal did not provide me the
support/coaching or reload in a timely enough manner, I'm looking for someone more professional.
I'm currently completing a small Micro Millions stake, where I succesfully sold all my action, leaving me playing for 50% and the 5 stakers sharing the other 50%, currently showing a small profit there.
What I enjoy about poker:
I love the freedom to play when I want, am also a so spend a lot of time online listening to music, works really well with poker. I live the challenge, the rush of excitement in big pots deep in tournaments, the challenge of improving my games, and using maths to do this. Poker to me is something I want to master, I’ve always been very driven, and achieved a lot in my life, now I want to focus on poker and see how far I can go.
