HokieGreg & Other HUSng.com Coaches Now Staking Players!

What we have to do?

Is HUSNG.com directly
Is HUSNG.com directly involved in the stakeing process or are they just the reference because Hokie and Paul are coaches of this site?
June 10, 2012 - 21:18#3
Hey, to clarify, HUSNG.com is
Hey, to clarify, HUSNG.com is providing resources and support. Obviously Cog and Hokie are coaches on the site as well, and I'll be helping too, so it's definitely a HUSNG.com labeled thing, and the funds are provided by the coaches as well.
But actual HUSNG.com membership or rake dollars aren't being used, if you meant in that sense.
Sorry for any lack of clarity here.
We'll have an actual public staking and free bankrolls (for poker room deals we have coming out soon) in the very near future, and when that happens I'll move this thread there.

I'll get straight to the
I'll get straight to the point. Usually when someone is stakeing a wide field of horses their are allways the following risks:
- risk of ruin
- risk of being scammed
Those risks, usually are (or at least should be), calculated into the 'cut' of the staker(s). However, if the horse decides to scam the staker and HUSNG.com will open their data base to the staker (information about screennames where tracked trough HUSNG.com, private address and so on and so forth) the risk of being scammed w/o change of getting anything back is reduced and so should be the extra cut.

Good points Barrin. I would
Good points Barrin.
I would even go another step further to apply it to all backers: The more verification and information you have, the lower your risk.
That also extends to horses, as you correctly point out: Those costs saved for the backer will also be enjoyed by the horse on average (of course some backers will be greedy or ignorant, but others will pass on the savings either knowingly or not).
We do have some other advantages here as well Barrin. We have some ability to control funds to an extent on some poker rooms (cashouts, playing above certain buyin levels), and those things are obviously only going to add to the security of this situation (and have been taken into account from top to bottom).

OTOH if they live up to their promise of intense education that could be worth significantly more than a couple %. Either way staking hu is not an easy thing and I'm interested in seeing how they do it.

I'm always weary of getting
I'm always weary of getting involved in staking deals from a backer perspective. I've done it before, overall successful, but I've seen the ups and downs of this thing (I staked a euro guy that turned out to be a scammer once, luckily he paid me back, had some other incidents before too). It's very difficult to stay organized, remain an asset to your players, track them correctly, pick them correctly and still leave enough room so that the deal is mutually beneficial for you and the player.
What makes this different for me is that it works to everybody's strengths. Coaching from experienced coaches. Resources that I work with every day (membership videos, forum posting, top poker room deals when relevant, etc.) and dedicated funds from professional players with solid financial standing.
I'm pretty excited to see this progress because I think it has the potential to really become an extension of what the videos on this site have become - A big win/win for coaches and students alike (in both cases those that want to work hard have benefited over the years quite consistently) and the best place to find staking (or videos) for a heads up sit and go player.
The opportunity to offer something like this hasn't really come up previously, so it has been no surprise that I've seen players make and lose small fortunes staking players since the last time I staked anybody (almost 2 years ago now).

Nice-exspecially that coaches
Nice-exspecially that coaches will regulary train with stakees an full access to premium content.
How will it work?
Im playing $15 and $30 HU SnGs regular. Lets say I'm looking for a staking because of anything :)
-Is it possible to get stacked higher Stakes e.g. $60?
-How much of my winning does the coach/staker get?
-How much volume Ive to play per month?
-Do I have to send some referencies (Graphs etc)?
Im just interested because getting staked could also be valuable because of the full access and get coached by a good player. Even if i have the BR by my own to play 30s. Future EV is the word!

what's the split?
I have a 12k sample of supers at 4% ROI, most of it 21s, but some at 15s too. Looking to leave Merge for Lock.

Who gets staked ?
I am a breakeven/minimal losing player on $14 on partypoker who is dedicated to getting better, with a lot of time to invest in playing poker. Relatively intelligent and ambitious :)
Any dealmaking possible for a guy like me ?

The rake on .fr sites is very large and moving money on and off can present a problem (setting up .fr accounts, figuring out transfer policies).
If the rake situation changes in particular, we will likely move more aggressively in the .FR market.

and if you take a bigger part of the winnings?

i think we cannot play on these sites now, they' ve closed their doors to french players.....So i think i won't be stacked
What would be the best option for me ( which coach?? ) to improve my game with a low budget?
July 30, 2012 - 12:01#23
At the $7 level, paying $100s
At the $7 level, paying $100s of dollars for coaching isn't often your best choice.
I think the video memberships are much more budget friendly and can still give you all the tools you need to improve your game and move up. The most important factor is you, how much time you put in, how focused you are when playing, how open you are to improving your decision making.
If you play focused poker, and a lot of it, and aren't afraid to ask questions and watch videos and take ideas from others and insert them into your own thought process, you should do very well long term.
