http://sealsdeals.info/?wsop

tytytyty to Ender for putting this site together.

Public Ledger to reflect all IRL-USD business:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArSX17d2S9wqdHNfcDgwOERpcHJId0JtWlFvc2c0U2c#gid=0

I am selling micro% of each WSOP tournament I am playing at this year's WSOP.  As some of you may know, SwC user 'Ender' coded a really cool staking site called SealsDeals.info.  It rocks.  I begged him to list my WSOP there, and thankfully he obliged.  

To buy piece of me, load BTC onto SwC, and type this in the chat:

#buy percent% wsop event number

For example, to buy 1.5% of any of his winnings in the main event, you would use

#buy 1.5% wsop 62c

WSOP is SOONER THAN YOU THINK starts 5/29

notes:  

-- I will be patched up in SwC gear (hit me up if you come to Vegas this WSOP - just ask me if you see me for SwC gear, I'll have some in my backpack - if you are playing a bracelet event and want to rep SwC make me give you a patch)

-- obviously WSOP is a USD gamble.  As soon as you ship btc, it is converted to USD.  You can see the rate at the top of Ender's awesome site.  As soon as I win something, it will in USD and converted to BTC within ~24 hrs after and the appropriate % you purchased shipped to the SwC account you paid with.  There are of course no restriction and you instantly withdraw the btc to any hash.

-- Obviously I will not play every single event on that list.  I will make day 2's most likely.  That means events will be almost surely refunded.  Same USD rules must apply.  Yes this is locking up your BTC in USD for a few weeks+ but IMO these shares will sell out before each event.  I also have my DonkDown community that will buy for fiat, and my pro poker friends.  So DON'T GET SHUT OUT!

-- I plan to gamble $15k-20k of my own money at this year's WSOP

-- I aim to have ~33% of myself in most events.  I have opened up 50% of each event right now, and may open up more % or reduce the unsold amount (if one of my friends buys for USD)

-- There is a public ledger here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArSX17d2S9wqdHNfcDgwOERpcHJId0JtWlFvc2c0U2c#gid=0  for all IRL business I conduct (usually selling whatever % I want to sell to my friends to make each tourney what I want to gamble)

no, but it's really easy to do if you have btc in a wallet.  I need this step for accounting.

Definitely not a +EV move. There are better players on 2+2 or Pocket 5s you could buy a piece of without risking loss in BTC conversion.

I would help if you'd state what tournaments you will be playing. It is unneccesary to get all people to buy a piece of you in all tournaments because you can't play them all.

I wouldn't want to invest in the main event and then find that mister 'i am bitcoin awareness in the wsop' start bashing on some amateurs in a low level side event like last year...

1)  I am actively revising this schedule to get very close to what I will play.  These events are BEING REMOVED as soon as I get in touch with Ender:   4, 10, 11, 22, 28, 40, 46, 49.  They are events very close to my "100% play" events like for some reason I had event #4 on there which is the noon'er on the same day as my beloved 8-game at 5pm - no chance I'm playing Event #4.   

2)  while this list may look long:  http://sealsdeals.info/?wsop     It's the events I have a shot to play - and note that some will be refunded - if I am on a Day2 from a previous event, etc.

3)  Every WSOP since 2006 I've played 10+ events, this year will be no different.  It's an intense month and it will be fun to have the weight of the bitcoin community behind me when I'm playing.  I twitter constantly during the events and will post all information showing that I bought in  (this is also public record on WSOP.com, but I like to tweet a seat card or starting stack each time for the sweat)

Not saying there aren't better players available to stake on 2+2, but I'm just giving the guy his props.

Using the same logic, there are a lot worse players around who are looking for staking as well.

A genuine poker pro shouldn't have to ask for staking to buyin to the world series main event...

1)  14/82 cashes (17%) is relatively good for an MTT player (remember ~10% of the field cashes each tourney)

2)  I'm sure there are better stakes than me this summer @ WSOP - lots of really good young kids playing these days.  This thread is simply one man, Bryan Micon, offering to sell action - no problems if you don't want to buy - I'm playing the events listed as I have every year no matter what.   If I sell for btc I sell for btc, if not I will sell the appropriate % to my friends to make the MTT buy in what I want to gamble.  
3) I plan to gamble $15k-20k of my own money at this year's WSOP
4) I aim to have ~33% of myself in most events.

I plan to gamble ~ $15k-$20k of my own money at the 2013 WSOP.  I have a new baby daughter and frankly am just not that wealthy yet where I can comfortably gamble more.  I don't feel any shame in that statement, it is simply the truth.  Sure I wish I was a multi-millionaire and could play the $50k this year, but as your apparent jealousy insists, we are on a good thing over at SealsWithClubs, so I'll simply sell the appropriate % this year, and ball out when/if I can.  

IMO from a marketing standpoint it is poor form on your part to post in this thread at all, let alone negatively.  I'm sorry SatoshiPoker didn't come along and kill SwC.  It's waaaaaaaay harder to do correctly than you think.

Micon, let me get this straight immediately: I am in no way jealous with either you or SwC. Actually, I am proud of you in how you can make a succes out of such a buggy software product with known leaks. Also, I didn't mention either SwC or SP even once in this thread and I am not responding out of marketing, just out of personal interest in the subject. I even offered you twice (once on this forum, once in the alliance) to join forces to draw attention for bitcoin poker this WSOP. You responded with "I am bitcoin awareness in the WSOP", and then only playing tournaments on the sideline. For your information: the main event is $10k, not $50k and I think anybody who claims to be a poker pro and can't afford the $10k buyin to the main event... well you can fill in the rest yourself.

Good luck with your staking and your tournaments. I just hope for the people who buy a part of you that they don't end up with ur brains...
Im out.

Bullshit.  The vast majority of poker pros are stakehorses at least some of the time.  Unless you are a multimillionaire, you are not sufficiently bankrolled for a large field $10,000 buyin tournament on an annual basis.  Many pros also cross-stake each other to lower the variance.

This screams scared money. Mind posting some more specific performance results over the past year or so (online and B&M) so those who wish to invest can be aware of expected return?

it is no problem if you don't feel I'm a good investment.  Others do, and some may not really care and just want legitimate action on the WSOP.

specific results are posted in the OP:

http://www.wsop.com/players/playerprofile.asp?playerID=19110

http://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/player.php?a=r&n=67931

http://www.cardplayer.com/poker-players/41328-bryan-micon/results/overall

http://www.pokerpages.com/player-profile/bryan-micon.htm

and of course I've been playing mostly SwC this past year. 

the last part of your post "so those who wish to invest can be aware of expected return?" tells me you haven't bought pieces of tournament players in the past.  There is a huge variance in MTTs - "expected return" is anywhere from $0 to ~$8M this summer.
