Some general caveats for potential backers to protect yourselves from scams:
1) Do a google search on all the person's usernames. In this case, ineedcash112 only comes up twice on google, and one of those is for ITH. Someone with 15,000 hands should certainly have a reference or two somewhere on teh webz.
I have serious concerns that the PT stats are photoshopped with a different username.
2) In this case, this person is asking for a stake on Stars, but clearly has some significant funds at AP. Why aren't they asking for a transfer?
3) Before doing transferring, you should require an unknown to sit at a limit table with a (determined by you) significant amount of money, so you can be sure that they really have the funds, and if they are the unknown, they send first, under all circumstances.
ive said it before and i'll say again, getting a stake is not my ultimate goal, the point is to improve my overall game, I'm not going deposit 50 or 100 into a site just to try their games because at lower limits the biggest enemy is the rake (let's face it, it's a fact). I need a win rate like 6bb/100 to crush those games without rakeback which i consider a huge challenge. i always wonder why people play at ps without rakeback, it could be their loyalty program but it seems to me that rb isn't available there. I'm more into hand session review and coaching stuff cos i think they are worth more than a stake, but of course I welcome stakes cos, who hates $ anyway? and im genuinely suprised that no one signed up for stakes from me.
my results are not impressive at all compared to experts/pros, I've been told that 5.5bbb/100 is sustainable against fishes hu. it is my goal to achieve a win rate over 5bb/100 over time. table selection is a big part of my game, i dont play against good players hu. that said, im a recreational player so who cares & i admit the database is nothing in terms of size. (just the last 40 days)
If you worry that I'm a fake identity... Well i post under the same name at stoxpoker and i've actually done a hand session review with someone else already (where I lost 500 at 5/10 in 167 hands), that said I still could be fake. i guess if you worry then just ignore me to avoid troubles xDDD, let's not forget that i play under the same name too, i do have other nicks though.
OH and this is not my AP name, i used a hand converter to convert hh at the site i play at to AP format in order to import those hands, that's why you see AP in poker graph. (don't assume I play at AP because you see the word AP!) I paid 10$ to the guy who made it and he paid me 100 at the table so it's all good. xDDD
If you want I can show you a 10k roll on one site I play at, I prefer to do it only when you are serious about staking me
(as i never show a huge roll on the tables) further I don't keep my entire roll in one site.
