no, i don't believe i am good enough to be staked right now.

plus i think grinding my way up starting from 25NL will help my game out infinitely more than if you sat me down at 200+NL table.

.edit not that i implied i WILL be good enough to stake, just saying now there's no way in hell it'd be worth it. yeah, im profitable at 25NL, but anyone playing ABC can be as well.

Ok not necessarily ME, but SOMEONE. And the benefit would be that you could play in higher-stakes games. Assume also, that there is minimum responsibility. If you lose, you lose. THe beneficiary is not a friend. Nor will he break your arms.

Yes, I would like someone to stake me. I'm pretty sure that I'm a winning player at 5/10 but I don't have the bankroll for it. So I can sit and grind out the 5/10 bankroll by playing 2/4 for another two months or so, but it would certainly be faster and more profitable to get someone to stake me 10K and then to jump right into the 5/10 games.

No. I have a regular job, a family, and a nice hobby that takes up all my "free" time playing SSNLHE that makes a little money (better than the stock market for a $300 investment + books!). My goal is to improve, build a bank roll, and move up as high a limit as I can play at with a positive winrate. I think getting somebody else's money involved would make the whole thing a lot more stressful, and therefore a lot less fun.

yes, I would like to, because I tend to play better when its not my money I'm gambling, and I can play at levels that my current bankroll may not allow

I prefer keeping all of my profits instead of half of them.

Only if you maintain the same winrate.
