Not too often, poker players are presented with the opportunity to boost their bankroll overnight without taking any chances and without getting involved in a shady deal. Obviously, there are some strings attached when someone promises to stake you up to play, but the proposition made by this particular company is simply resistible. Not surprising, they chose the name Stake Me To Play for their venture, as it accurately reflects their business model and leaves no questions about what their purpose might be.
Launched in the United Kingdom, the company’s services are only available to those who reside within the borders. It all begins on Friday in Stratford City, where the organizers plan on hosting a party to mark the beginning of the new program and draw attention. The truth is, that poker players don’t need too many incentives when the end result is receiving a significant amount of money that they can use as they see fit at the poker tables.
The concept is not new and poker players themselves used to stake up some of their peers for various reasons and with different conditions. The idea is to have someone who shows a lot of promise but lacks the financial resources necessary for competing at decently high limits. The one who is staking a poker player is counting on him to turn profitable so that a portion of his gains will be returned. As for the poker player himself, this is a win-win situation because he receives a certain amount with no strings attached and he doesn’t mind sharing a part of the potential winnings.
The UK company is based in Essex and that’s why they chose Aspers Casino Stratford to be the gracious host for the upcoming party. “Stake Me To Play” intends to make baby steps and convince prospective players that it is worth applying for assistance. If the program goes according to the plan and there is no reason to expect it not to, there is a good chance for the company to accept players from outside United Kingdom in a not so distant future.
“Stake Me To Play” will also host a free roll to mark this occasion and the winner will receive a package worth €5000 for the European Poker Tour London. It goes without saying that the winner will not only get the chance to compete among some of the best poker players in the world, but will also stand out from the crowd. This is exactly what players need to do to prove the company that they are worth staking up and this is what makes this free roll a must attend event.
To top it off, the organizers promised to have some prominent speakers at this event and even a couple of poker professionals. For this reason alone, those who are even remotely interested in poker and reside in or close to Stratford City shouldn’t make any other plans for the weekend.
