How did this turn out? $37,000 loss? This is why people deserve an accounting of your results BEFORE they invest in you. Because now everyone feels scammed, like they gave you a bankroll to go gamble away in Vegas.

good luck man. after you win a bracelet i want that rematch at yatzy.


if your ever on ESPN remember to give a shout out to YT and mention bitcoin barron

Damn wish I would have Smiley  YT came out for an event or 3, cashed deep in the $235 and made a bit of fiat out here.  He, myself, and 2 others will be at Defcon doing a Skytalk entitled "Bitcoin Barons"

damn gg 25th not to bad getem next time

tytytyty for all the support / felt the love when I logged into SwC chat during the summer

A bunch of world champions lost money in 2014 WSOP.  Some sold shares.  It is just pure hate or misunderstanding of variance over ~2 dozen tournaments?

I've never seen anything misleading that you've done so I'm just trying to figure this out.  25th in a huge tourney seems really good and like it would have a good payout.  How did you not profit for the shareholders?  Is it because you didn't cash in a bunch of the tourneys?  How would the share hodlers have really made out, do they need like a top 3 finish by you in a tourney or something?

public sheet is so public:

https://docs.google.com/a/sealswithclubs.eu/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArSX17d2S9wqdFZOeWV2SDVTNkxHTlRwYXB1ZkhERkE&usp=drive_web#gid=0

highlights:

Total Planned to Play:                        $62,222            
Played as planned                        $51,000               
Planned but didn't play (refunded)         $12,222   
Refund $ Used For Other MTT(s)         $8,250            
Cashes:                                        $21,595   

so $59,250 fired
$21,595 money back
a few k just plain refunded, as the summer frenzy of WSOP you can never quite be sure when you make day 2 and can't play the next one, or bust early and find a makeup MTT or something like the $2.2k satty to the $50k 8game. 

So this is a losing summer, I'm a professional gambler and that was one possible outcome before the summer started so I'm not at all angry / mad / upset / feel like a failure, nor are any of my investors because they are all rational thinkers, some are poker players, and all understand the variance in massive-field poker tournaments. 

My 25th was close, and I bubbled the Razz epicly to Huck Seed's worse hand (but +EV play IMO, so very standard hand to bust here between two good players)

http://www.pokernews.com/live-reporting/2014-wsop/event-7/chips.85434.htm

but really the 25th was a shot at big money.  Here are the payouts from the 2000+ entrants for $1500:

1   Ted Gillis   US      514,027
2   John Hennigan   US      319,993
3   Dejan Divkovic   BA      222,429
4   Jacobo Fernandez   US      160,193
5   Mustapha Kanit   MS      117,079
6   Jaime Kaplan   US      86,609
7   Hiren Patel   US      64,911
8   Edison Shields   US      49,267
9   Dylan Thomassie   US      37,834
10   Darin Stout   US      29,709
11   Gregg Merkow   US      29,709
12   Ron Mcmillen   US      29,709
13   Max Silver   GB      23,486
14   Matthew Ditonto   US      23,486
15   Tamas Lendvai   HU      23,486
16   Phil Collins   US      18,755
17   Mitch Garshofsky   US      18,755
18   Goran Filipovic   US      18,755
19   Tuomas Jalonen   US      15,178
20   Jeffrey Yarchever   US      15,178
21   Julius Malzanini   DE      15,178
22   Keanu Tabali   US      15,178
23   Andy Spears         15,178
24   Paul Francoi Tedeschi   FR      15,178
25   Bryan Micon   US      15,178


so 7th or better pays for the entire summer of chances including the Main event, which day 1 I work my stack from 30k to 50k but run into trouble on day 2 when I literally was in the worst seat in the Amazon room - to Phil Ivey's direct right while he had 400k on day 2.  Holy unlucky but really cool but still very fucking -EV random table move on day 2:

http://www.pokernews.com/live-reporting/2014-wsop/main-event/chips.98967.htm

and then I ran AK into AA and AK v. JJ aipf and lose the race and that's how you fire off the last $10k. 

AND I'LL DO IT AGAIN NEXT YEAR Smiley
