    A friend of mine that i play poker with and has a decent job and plays alot told me that he thinks im pretty good and could win some tournaments. I thought that was a nice complement i usually only play cash games but i know the difference styles. I play all different types of poker but the tourneys would be hold em only. I dont have enought cash to play in tourneys because of my school loans. but he said he would bankroll me and if i win we just split it 50-50. Is that a good Idea? or would i be a fool to take it or not take it?

    If its the only way u can play its fine. But once u get a bankroll going u need to cut his share. No way the backer should get 50% unless its the only way u can enter.

    In my opinion 50/50 is very generous for the player. I'd take it in a heartbeat.

    Is there any makeup invloved in this argeement Hud477?

    I wish I had someone like that. I'd play full time if I had a backer. I'd give him 50% as well. I have tournament results as well. I cashed 3 out of my last 3 WSOP tournaments consecutively.

    50/50 is a great deal for any player. The banker should get that down in writing. Wouldn't want another Jamie Gold situation of trying to collect.

    I think 50/50 is the best deal for all players. I also want to play like you because the situation of mine as same as you. But I am newbie to poker and getting familiar with leak buster. For that after few days i think i will be able to play like you.

    Yeah, you should actually think about this.

    What is the makeup agreement? If it's 50/50 with no makeup clause, that's a great deal for you.
