i think it comes down to if you enjoy playing, if you stake a player then your looking at 45% winnings to the staked player minimum, so that means in the long run do you think that player is twice as good as you, in my case probably yes lol, if you want to skate then id do a lot of research on potential marks, and remember, a lot of pro"s who advertise to be staked dont have the funds to enter the big tournys, succesfull players dont have to advertise to be staked, people find them.

I wouldn't stake someone for sure i belived my pal was a better player than me and entred into a agreement to split with him in a live tour... He bummed out and i won...had to give him £500 that was gutting but fair
All the promises of returns of any winnings were just a pack of lies and off he tootled with my money and his winnings in his pocket.
I wouldnt lend anyone money now on any site, not even good friends. Its just too much of a risk and anyone who does it needs their heads testing, because the simple fact is if they were any good they would be playing with their own money and not yours.

Posted by MANUEDO: Could you help me to understand in a different way what do you mean for stake players? Thanks all
staking a player means that your giving that player money and your getting a percentage of any winnings.
That and u also get back the money u stacked him. Like say some1 stacked u in the Sunday Million and u came 1st and the deal was 50% of the winnings and u came 3rd and made something like 50000$ that means u have to give him 50% of that + the entry fee but ppl won't count the entry fee if u make that much. But say u came in like 1000 and u made 1250$ the entrance was ~250$ so u have to give bak 250 + 50% of 1000 which is 500.
I would never stake randoms there is stake websites with known ppl who wouldn't jew u. I would only stake those ppl and friends.
