Mark | Poker Articles, Poker Bankroll Building

I have started a stake deal with my good friend Artur. The deal is that I provide a starting bankroll of 2000$ and when he reaches 5000$ I receive 3000$. I have chosen to see the deal as a bet where I get odds 1.5 on my stake. Since I think the probability of success is more than 67% the EV on my bet is above 1. If you are a gambler you always take bets with an EV over 1 :-)

Here are some more details:

  • Limits 0,5$/1$
  • The project will obviously stop when the bankroll hits 0$
  • I cannot pull out of the deal unless the bankroll reaches 5000$
  • The daily running stop loss is 300$. This for example means that if the daily profit hits 600$ then Artur has to stop playing if the daily profit drops to 300$
  • Rakeback goes back into the bankroll
  • I receive weekly updates which I will post here

Hi Alynn

The forum still works if you go to

The PokerBRB webpage however is down because the amateurs at UK2net haven’t been paying attention.

I will be online in an hour or so

To bad you did not collect more from this hand, especial that he had a pair of aces.
