This looks to have worked out nicely, ( I have worked with Photolong for quite a while and can vouch for his integrity as well as ability to win) BUT i feel compelled to post a warning about Staking players you have hardly any knowledge of..
Staking works only if you follow one crucial rule. Know your player:- There are tonnes of stats sites out there. Take 10 minutes and search your players history.. Has he rolled someone on a staking site and targetting you as his next victim? or does he "look" legitimate? I say "look" as no one can be 100% sure a player is what he pretends to be. In this case the backer has got lucky in that photo is a longstanding a trusted member of a decent staking site but what if he werent? Look look and look again
I cannot emphasise this enough. IF BRM introduces staking then all is well as Im sure they will run some kind of security checks before letting players get involved.. IF not I seriously recommend running your staking action through a trusted staking site that tries to eliminate those scammers before they get anywhere near your wallet

ok up and running played 2 lost 2 bubbled one and 6th in other ... Top 4 get paid ...
dozn01 has link and he should be able to track all games played ... i will post updates here. As to whether my ROI is good enough to be the one to do this ... That again is up to dozn01 he put up the offer i applied and got accepted .... All im going to do is play and cash as many games as i can .. But as with every stake i accept i aim to make a profit as this enables me to get more stakes in future .. so the only guarantee i can give is to work very hard at this so that the people who backed me are willing to do so again ....
Dont forget dozn01 is not the only backer in this $136 they are 6 people all together who have given me money ..... they too will be following my progress and even watching some of the games played.
Thanks all who have left positive feed back .... hope by the end of this there will be a lot more discussion on the pros and cons of staking
