Posted by pinotte: With the thread going on about staking. I made some research on the web and found a guy named Ivan Stokes (ILS007) who is doing coaching some players and stakes them.
I wonder if some of you knows this guy and is business.
Funny you ask this. He was my first coach, deal started for MTTs but I transitioned to SNGs with his help later. He is a very good player and very nice guy as well, but back then the coaching was too basic for me. I was in a group with 3 others, and 2 of them were pretty bad, so he (unfortunately) kept the coaching too basic. Overall I think he is a very good coach and good to work with in the staking business. However, there are very strict rules and requirements to get staked by him. First, his contracts are at least 1 year in duration. Then there are requirements like basic SNG knowledge (plays with different stacksizes, basic ranges...), ability to play many tables (if one cant play at least 10 tables it's simply not worth it) and so on.
