If you're playing on that level, and could project a schedule you might be using it for the next year, I think there are at least a couple people here who might take a chance on you. Maybe even a piece of your action if you're selling, you never know. I was picturing more a 1/2 or 1/3 player in weekly games. You're playing waaayyy above that.



Sweet, I'd really appreciate it if you could send them to my thread/me.

As for selling action, it's difficult selling action for cash games, as there has to be a great deal of trust, and it's very hard to build that sort of rapport. They have to trust that I'm not falsifying results, and I have to trust that they'll pay for incurred losses.
Additionally, I don't really need to sell action unless the game is 50/100+
So, I would be willing to sell action if I happened to see a very juicy big game that I wouldn't otherwise play with 100% of my own action, but that would not be the norm.

As for a schedule -- yeah, I'll go look at it again and get a more clear picture of what my usage would look like. I'm not going to post the actual places I'll be attending on this thread, but I can give an idea of how many days I'll be playing throughout the year and whatnot.

Wasn't really looking to scare people off. More to explain why people might hesitate. I would encourage you to take that negotiation to Private Messaging, though. Probably most don't want to have the conversation in public.



Yeah I understand. And yeh, def intend on talking via private message, I don't want to do business out in public either

Really appreciate your replies, very informative, I was rather clueless to the whole process other then knowing other people have gotten a companion card and what they paid for theirs.

I could probably be convinced to sell a companion card to you for one 25/50 poker buy in.

The value from one of those cards at the WSOP in terms of skipping lines is pretty substantial by itself.

I am not certain swipes for poker rooms would trip out

For one thing isnt live poker player vs player. Does a casino count a rake as a theoretical?

There are swipes that do not affect ADT. Most food outlets in casinos do not trip out (but not all) and as I have vehemently stated in other threads swiping at a kiosk almost never trips out

Simplest solution is for the op to obtain a gold card, send it to to me and finance my play to Seven Star Status.

Yes and no. The high limit section is mostly only 10/25, and then 25/50 will run occasionally, and its not a guarantee to be a soft game worth skipping into.
The 10/25 has so many tables running that you're always getting into the game within 20 minutes, so it would only be used for getting into the occasional 25/50 game (assuming it's good). Now consider that you can only use it at the Rio, but there's plenty of good games at Aria/bellagio. Having it would certainly incentivize me to go to the RIo instead depending on what's going on that particular day, but it's not a substantial amount of value. I'll also be at the wsop for less then a month.

THANK YOU. I was just accepting everybody elses input as fact because I assumed they were more informed on the matter then me, but I found it odd that other poker players were able to get the companion card so easily if the cardholders were truly so concerned about diluting their comps.

Is there any way for us to find out? Probably not because they wouldn't want to discuss anything pertaining to the algorithm.

Well, since I'm playing big, I likely am +EV for card holders, and then if it doesn't effect ADT, a cardholder would now have no reason to not give it to me.

Aside from finding out the hard way I would just ask that persons host

If the cardholder is trying to maintain levels and NOT comp hustle (which would be worthless to you) then its a legitimate and harmless question of a host

Be warned host have been known to give out misinformation but some are quite knowledgeable. Especially with this type of situation

Leave out the part about you purchasing the companions friendship (which sounds more dubious than it is lol)

I agree. Ask your host if giving the companion card to your spouse will dilute your ADT or ADW if they are in the casino on a day that you are not with them.

Each company handles this differently.

Most likely the host of a 7 star is going to be overprotective of their customer. He probably will give out reliable info and has probably had these questions before
