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.

WSOP Day 2b results - on to day 3

Today was a up and down day. Started with 106K, got to $140K, down to $50K, and ended at $142K.

I was at a table with David Oppenheim and Antonio.. and sandwhiched between antonio and another big stack.

I get into a sick hand with David Opp. He had been open raising a lot of pots and being aggresive. So i limp UTG with 56off (yeah i know...) David raises to $1600 and I call. Flop is AJ4. I think for a min like i have a monster and check. he bets $4K and I call. Turn is a 7 and gives me open ended. I check and he best $8800. Any other card and I can get away from it. But i have been representing a big hand and now have a draw. So i call, planning on leading the river no matter what.

The river is an 8 giving me the straight. I know he doesnt have 9T, so I know I have the nuts. I check, he bets $16K and I debate what to bet. I thought about a min raise, but then to get max value, decided on $40K to maybe look like i missed and was buying it. He eventually folded.

I built easily up to about $120K. then lost a huge hand.
had Qs8s on the button and with a few limpers saw a flop of Js4s8c. checked to hijack who bets a weak 2500. With my big draw, i semi-bluff $7500 to see whats up. he calls.

turn is a 9d giving me a gutter. he checks and this is where i F'd up. I should have checked behind. but no... staying aggressive and trying to rep a big hand, i fire $20K. he calls and has $15K more.

River is a blank, he checks and i put him all in. he calls painfully and tables AA.

I could have checked behind on the turn and river and saved almost $40K. now I am down to $60Kish.

I get moved to a new fairly soft table. I have one huge hand. Raise in MP with QdTd and get 1 caller, the big stack. Flop is Jd9dTc, giving me open ended straight flush and middle pair. I bet $4500, he makes it $10K, i make it $30K, he goes all in and I call. he has KQ for nut straight. Turn is a blank and 8d on river for straight flush.

Nothing exciting after that, ended with $143K good for 355th out of 1315 left.
