Ok maybe I won't bother then.

I just wonder whether anyone (including Skeptix) has a realistic view of his edge in tourneys over $200. The answer unfortunately isn't obvious or forthcoming.

Obviously it depends which $200 tournament. For instance, I think the Sunday Warm-Up has better value than the Million.

If you want me to make an educated guess, I would put myself at between 30-50% ROI in most $200 online MTTs.

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.
LOL!!!

Really? Sure variance is much higher in a monstrous tournament like the million, but there are SOOOOO many donks (per good player) in the Sunday Million, way more than in the warm-up. So how is the warm-up a better value?

BTW I wouldn't mind staking you in Sunday tournaments on Pstars because I figure the fields are soft.

The Warm-Up has mostly European players and a good number of the American pros aren't awake yet.

I think the route I'm gonna go is offer a package deal that include x $215 buyins for Stars sunday tourneys and x $162 buyins for nightlys. This way I can play out the buy-ins at my own discretion and sleep won't be an issue. I would naturally post whenever I was set to play an event.

So something like

8 $215 Sunday buy-ins
8 $162 Nightly buy-ins

Total : $3016

100 shares at $30.

Thoughts?

I would be interested in this type of a deal.

I am not sure why you are laughing out lound AOE, if there is some kind of gramatical mistake well sorry, if this is on the stacking it self I meant I would be willing to take shares like for the WCOOP obviously.

edit : btw I would take shares too for that package.

I'll probably back you again for a share or two if it is convenient for me to rail. I say this because I should watch the play in high stakes MTTs, and buying a share gives me that extra incentive. If you make some $s for me, then that is all the better.

The bottom line is - I will wait to see what firms up, and will buy in if the nights work for me to rail.

He probably just thought it was funny that you said "stack" when you should have said "stake".

to stake someone = to pay his buy-in
to stack someone = to win all of his chips
