A Piece of the Action
I’ve been looking for other ways to get deeper into the poker community lately and looked into buying action from other players. Buying action is when you pay a certain percentage of a players’ buy-ins for a cut of the profits if they win or run deep. Usually there is a markup associated with the percentage (usually based on the player’s typical results).
I figured I would give it a try and put some money on one of my favorite players Jonathan Little. He does great training videos along with some amazing books. I would say he is one of the top teaching players out there. I threw a couple hundred down on his action in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown series in Hollywood, Florida. I have a small piece of his action in a few of the events and I trust his skills to run deep in one of them. I also know that it’s very difficult to run deep in any series but it’s cool to be involved in those higher stake events.
If you want to buy some action in players, just choose someone you can trust and know that poker tournaments aren’t easy to run deep in. Good luck to the both of us and I’ll let you know how things turn out!
