Its $138K for me to call and would put me all in. Its a premium hand and we are short handed. If i fold, I have $138K, well below the avg of $200K,and at 5k/10k 1250A, only have 13BBs and and M of 6.

Its a snap call right? Well i did:

stan4stl: raises 185501 to 218834 and is all-in
Podiman: calls 138927 and is all-in
Uncalled bet (46574) returned to stan4stl

Did i misplay this? Can I fold there? Any feeback would be appreciated.
I have been going deep a lot lately, but cannot get over the hump to save my life and get a win.

Need advice on putting together biz plan for backers

I have had several friends/associates ask me about backing me and i was hoping to get some feedback/advice/suggestions on a biz plan that I can put together to bring to potential investors.

I am thinking that $25K is all I would need to start, as that would give me a minimum of 5-10 buy-ins depending on the entry fees.

I am hoping one/some of you have been down this road and have some solid guidelines as to a fair and equitable deal structure.

Thanks in advance.
