ok sorry about not updating this for over 2 weeks now! been so busy with other things and just havnt had the time or energy to bother with it...MY BAD!
ok so unfortunately i had to let howard go and buzz decided he wanted to go it alone. glglglgl
im going to be doing new things regarding the stable next month. obviously by then i will have learnt what is what with running one of these things, make sure everything is in order and im sure for the next lot who come in it will be an easier, more enjoyable experience. this is the first time iv backed people full time so it was a learning curve for both me and the players. with only 2 people leaving the stable threw choice i dont think its gone all tht bad!
ok so across the 2 weeks we showed a profit of just under £500, this is a very small number but considering i wasnt here, andy played 1 day, bdawg went on a sick downswing, milo decided not to grind and joblin did a tad bit i cant really complain. was just a bad week for us all and i take full responsibility for this....family comes first! but were back now, big first day back yesterday and upswings here we come!
ok so plans for march regarding new players:
im going to have 3 seperate stable blocks!
the pro stable: this is whats going on now, players are full time and get cash game backing live and online, tournament backing live and online and full time coaching from me, with some of the UKs best players coming in to coach them! details will be released at the beginning of march on how their deal works and what they have to do to get it.
the semi pro stable: this is for people who like to do their own thing but want to learn a bit more and start to take poker more seriously. say you have a job but would put alot of your spare time into progressing in poker. you would be backed for online cash, live cash, online tournis and live tournis. the more you earn in the cash games...the more tournaments you get put into. you would have to come to the house 2-3 times a week max, get alot of the perks the pros do but progression would be slower. its also a good chance for you to decide if you want to go pro.
the part time stable: this is for players who just want to play a little, come and get coached by me and be bankrolled. if you wanted to play sngs or cash games its fine. you wont get many perks but you would be coached by friends of mine who specialise in your chosen field. these would progress your game and hopefully make us small but consistant profits along the way. it also gives you the chance to decide if you want to go semi pro and take poker a little more seriously.
regarding the full time stable, alex jobling, neil barron, andy carlin and miles mckenzie. they are all committed to this (i hope) which means come march 1st they will be pro stable members and start to take on the live and online poker circuit, have regular trips to dtd, be heavily rolled for online and LIVE cash games and start receiving coaching from some of the sickest players in the UK....as many people know about me im a hu cash game player and i dont bother much with any other game. so i can only take them so far when it comes to 6 max cash games...but the coaches i have coming in crush 100nl-5000nl so theyll be in good hands!
if any 1 wants to be in any of the stables and has an idea or plan they have wanted to do but havnt been able to please contact me by pm on the npf or add me to msn or email me @ email@example.com. let me know what you want from poker, time you can dedicate to this and wht your ideal plan would be....im pretty much up for anything! i rly want some good new keen players to join at one of the levels....so even if you can only devote 8 hours a week to poker thts fine, a deal can be worked around it!
thanks for reading!
