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

Second week’s update

As you can see the project is off to a slow start. Hopefully the pots will start rolling our way soon. Artur is very dedicated to the project as demonstrated by playing a session in the emergency room before it was his turn to get stitched up.

Key hands; big pots lost where we were way ahead before the river:

• Lost 200 with AA vs 10J on a 10 high flop. Our opponent called big bets all the way to the river to hit his runner runner flush
• Lost 200 where we hit K high flush on turn but lose to A high flush on river

Interesting idea. You might think about trying out cake poker, higher rakeback, fishier players, brand new deposit bonus.

Another good way to do a stake deal is to set a number of hands to play to. So investment = 2k, 50,000 hands to be played (using good bankroll strategy), player returns 2k minimum + 40% of profit… something like that.
