What is Poker Staking?
Poker staking refers to when a 'backer' gives a poker player money to play. Typically winnings are split between the backer and the player.
Staking can take many forms and includes long term stakes where a backer will commit to supporting a player for a period of time, and 'piece buying' where an investor buys the right to a certain % of a player's winnings. Piece buying is most common for Multi Table Tournaments - where players also trade percentages of their future winnings with each other. In fact, in many high stakes tournaments you might watch on TV, hardly any players have paid the full buy in, but instead have hedged their bets.
Many players claim to play better poker when staked. It is thought that it allows certain people to focus on playing 'good poker', rather than how much they are winning or losing.
