After reading a few of the staking threads here lately I remembered that "hey, I have an account with ChipMeUp that I never used". So I logged on to my account and started looking around a little bit. It seems like a good place for staking but it doesn't really have many active members or that many events either. I was just wondering if anyone of you have tried it and has any information about it, maybe if it works?
And hey, a lot of people here are asking for stakes, why not just set up an account and ask for staking over there? That way we can keep this forum clean and the few staking deals that might be interesting will be handled by another site therefor giving BRM less work with shutting down threads and such.
If you don't have an account you can just create one for free, I'm not sure if you can actually see any events without being logged in (didn't check). If you want to you can just add me as a referrer, I have the same username there as here.
If this last part about adding me as a referrer isn't allowed, admin can just feel free to remove that and any other parts that are against the forum rules. The main purpose of this thread is just to get a feel for that site, if it's trustworthy and so on, the other parts are just some random thoughts that popped into my head wile writing this

Posted by erru9107: Well, actually anyone can ask for people to stake them, or rather buy a share in the tournament. You just need to have made a deposit onto their site first if I understand it correctly.
Yes, you understood it correctly. It is just a deposit of $1 only once. But they do this to be sure that your PokerStars or whatever poker account is real. It is somekind of verification. After depositing $1, the admin checks if your poker account is from a restricted country or not. When you pass the procedure of depositing $1 and account approval, after that you can be a sponsor or you can purchase sponsorsip as well.
It is a good site, for players with skills, profitable players and that site can help them.
