It is finally upon us. The BBT4. As usual my broke ass is looking for backers. I am looking for full backing through the entire BBT4 sent to my account before the BBT4 starts. The entire contest cost is around $650 not including any Big Games. It is up to my backer if they want to back that also. It gives more chances to get good points but is the most expensive. I think that would add another 150-200 to the total cost depending how many they get in. If I can not find a backer for the entire event then I will consider backing for individual events although I think this gets rid of the main incentive to back me. If I win a month and get a seat, or win the ME seat then anyone who has backed me in full either gets a cut of the seat or a cut of the prize I can win with the seat.

Anyway my math is not exact just ask Bayne. Unlike other forms of poker I tend to do very well in the retarded blogger version. Last year I outright won a month for a $1500 package, and won several other events, almost won a second month out right, and I won something in the tourney of champions. My backer at least doubled his initial investment and had a nice shot at the 10K seat. Last year in 2008 even with a shorter playing schedule I ended up top five on all of the existing blogger games available. I already have a cash in a Mookie and a second in a Dookie. So I think at the very least my backer would get all his money back. Best case scenario we win a seat to the ME this time. If you want to back me for the entire event then send me an email at, IM me if you know me, or drop a comment if you can stand the ridicule. :P.

Backing a loser like you is retarded.

The math tells you % of a loss is a loss.

The math tells you putting up the money to back break even and getting % back is a loss.

LOL, why take backing if there is really no chance of you losing money? Seems like a bad deal for you.

Fear is the mind killer. You haters all fear me being in the BBT4. Another plus for someone backing me.

If I felt like depositing the money to play the BBT4 Blinders then I would not get a backer.. but I do not so in order to play all events I need to get backed. Honestly if I do not play any events it is not going to be a huge deal.

something tells me the only way you're getting backed is a pay-as-you-go format... I can see a sucker/investor going in for the month of March and reevaluating what they want to do for April/May as things progress - or maybe you hit enough in March that you freeroll the rest of the series... but trying to scare up a $600-800 stake up front... that's just asking for karmic doom from this blogger crew, judging by the comments...

Your previous backer does not care to reinvest? (opening can of worms, I'm sure)

Did you really just ask to be backed into bloggaments? Seriously it is time for you to quit poker forever man!

Would it be better to transfer money to your account or would you rather have cash?
