How do you get staked in online poker?


There are some poker forums where you can sell action for a single or few tournaments.  We’ll focus on long-term staking at Pocarr for this article.

The first step is to apply.  It’s important to fill out your application accurately and completely. The evaluation process will be delayed if all screen names are not provided or key information is missing.

What we will want to see is a clear focus on a specific game format.  Along with this, volume, positive results, high evbb/100, will be strong points that help us provide a staking offer. 

Have some money saved up so that you can survive if you go 6+ months without profit from poker.  This is not a requirement, but it helps lower risk in our eyes, and our offer will be better.  

Do not have negative feedback.  When players steal or do something very negative, it gets posted into various staking blacklist channels.  Do everything you can to stay off of these.  If you do something negative, own it and explain what happened and why it will not happen again.  

Have clear goals and a desire to improve constantly.  We want to help players develop and meet their full potential.  We are not looking to financially stake you for your last year of poker on your way out of the game.

If you don’t meet the above and want to join us, work to complete it.  There are many free and low-cost resources to improve, and then the volume is up to you.  If you don’t have the money to play even low stakes, that is fine.  Put in volume at micro stakes.  When we see promising players who meet all of the above and are playing micro stakes, we often will have an offer as we see the long-term potential.
