Default Future staking opportunities...

Wanted to get opinions on things.

I realize I've been loser in recent staking, so I'm wanting to gauge interest. Answer the poll and provide further opinions please.

EDIT : The actual answers refer to some sort of package. I very much realize that the more tournaments in a staking deal = lower variance. Still, post any thoughts you all have. I figure some of you are fed up and others have expressed further interest, let me know where you stand on this.

I might stake again if it seems like a fun package. I'm not too fussed that you lost about half on the last one. I'd expect that's a standard result for the most part, and that most of the long-term winnings would come from a single big score here and there.

I am willing to stake you in any decent event. However I think it would be nice if you had like 25-33% of your action like you had for the WCOOP.

If you wanna play some low buyin WSOP event I would be willing to stack you.

Just one though : You cant come to a 500$ event and not be willing to play it to the end, you absolutly have to be fully focused on the tournament (well if you want me to stake you at least, but I am pretty sure most people were quite shock to see you started a 530$ tournament and was willing to ask another player to finish it) or cancel the deal.

I think I remember (read: correct me if I'm wrong there) that in your "I am a bad poker player" thread there was a little discussion of your style of tournament play fitting the shorter stack tournaments better than tournaments with a rather deep stack. Thus the WCOOP wouldn't have been your best game.

So if the above is true to some extent I would like to stake you again for packages which involve your best games stackwise . I couldn't vote on that because I wouldn't know which option to pick.

maybe, stars isn't your favourite site.

what about stacking opportunities on other sites, e.g. Bodog?

maybe you didnt read the poll and figured it would be cool to post a random comment ?

eg : answer #4 => hint : FTP = full tilt poker

Maybe you figured that this post would make you look cool - it's doesn't. Why be such a smug?

On the staking part:
I'll stake you for anything if I can afford a share or two - I admit that I find it fun to rail and watch you play.
