Hey guys remember me?

Been quiet on here for a good while but have been pretty active in the past! I wanted to start a new journey thread to track my results and motivate me! Also thought I could produce a really interesting journey for people as what I am doing is very different!

As the title suggests I have recently been playing on one of these new Chinese App sites (PP Poker)! The reason for this is that I stumbled across a staking group on there and really liked what I saw! I have done staking twice in the past but neither time really worked for me! The main reason being that they both had a minimum number of hands per month and with a full time job it can be hard to commit to this! Especially if you go on a downswing and just have to keep pushing to try and get to your hand target! A recipe for disaster as I discovered!

This agreement is different in that there is no set hand requirement! You simply have to show willing and play as much as you can (oh and win of course Smile )!

I was a little sceptical when I first joined for obvious reasons but thought I would give it a shot and if I didn't like it I could just leave at any time! As soon as I started playing on the site I loved it! It is a real breath of fresh air! Literally the softest games I have ever experienced and rake is capped at 3bb in all games (and the bonus of 30% rb with my stake agreement)! Just cant ask for more! Plus the lowest games they offer are 1-2 which are the equivalent to roughly $60nl!

Results wise has been fairly decent since starting 4-5 weeks ago! Would have been great but I had one really bad week which affected my win rate considerably! I receive screenshots of my results from the staker each week so will post some of them when I get chance!

Hopefully be a good interesting ride and will try and record a few session to show you guys the games! Any questions just fire away!

Welcome back @Jef147 !

Great to see you post again and hopefully see you about with updates and posting some hands in the HH forum as well Smile

Regarding PPPoker, I have kind of stayed away because of the potential risks of not knowing who you are dealing with but let us know how you find it

Look forward to hearing about your Journey and I hope the staking goes well for you. I am currently staked aswell and it seems to be going fine at the moment with some high class coaching available, so has really improved my game.

Hey Ash, yeah that was exactly my thoughts so when this staking opportunity came up I thought it was a good chance to give it a try without depositing any funds! And any cash outs are obviously paid out by the staker which I have had no issues with so far!

Good stuff! The one downside of this staking is that their is no coaching or anything but it is nice and laid back which as a part time player suits me really well! Who are you staked with?

Ya the reason I applied for the staking was for the coaching so I could improve my game drastically. I am currently with BRS (Bank Roll Staking). Ya well if thats what suits you then go for it man.

How's it going @Jef147 ? Does this app group have PLO or just hold'em?
Posted 3 months ago
Hey Ash, yes about 80% of the horses are PLO! I was soley PLO until recently!

Bad news is that it has been put on hold for the next couple of weeks at least! They have said that they want to iron out a few issues before deciding on how to proceed (everyone not just me)! So not sure if and how it will continue but will see!
