What is a backer in poker?

 

A backer is the person or company that provides money to someone to play poker.  A backer is synonymous with ‘staker’ and is usually used in the context of someone giving money to a profitable poker player in exchange for a percentage of any profits.

Backing arrangements can be strictly financial or can include coaching, resources, and other added benefits.
