I think im very bussiness minded... along with the clothing line and recording company im starting with my buddies i came up with an idea of my own... thought here would be a deal sealer to see if its worth going through with it....


a poker room that runs on member ship fees for sponser money into live events/credit at casinos for live real money poker

450$ member ship for the year

1 month rankings on ring games and tournys each seperate

250 sponser dollors for 1st with prizes going to the top 20 every month and bonuses for those that rank first for 3 month 6 month and 12 months straight such as an additional 2,500 dollors in sponser money

with a tourny for everyone that ranked 1st throughout the year with 1st paying a 10K seat to a WSOP championship event of choice.....

I've got everything copy righted on the idea but i havnt fully finished the cost for running ive been looking into what dealers make annualy and it seems to be more then i could afford to pay DUE TO THIER TIPS most average 60-80k total

i was hoping i could see how many people here would be interested and think if this was an option for them they would play at my place instead of making the drive ever 2 weeks or so to an actual casino

thank you for your input

Why not just use the profits from your clothing line and record companies to finance it yourself?

450$ to join a site where I play as many SNGS as I can to get at the top of the leader board so that I can only then claim "sponsorship" money from?

No offense, but it sounds like a silly system. If I deposit 450$ on a site and I am among the best 20 players at my limit I would expect more than 250$ profit/month.

This system also favors those who log more hours and play more games...the incentive is just not there. I deposited 20$ at PS, and today (5 months later) I'm disappointed if I don't pull 400/mnth from average play.

They tried this exact thing and failed. There was another site that did it too, but the name escapes me.

Developing a poker room takes alot more that what you think, obviously.
But if you could, It could be very VERY profitable...
The WPT has a site that charges fees.. If you asked me, a set fee charged anually is a big NO NO... Hence, that WPT room is not doing all that great..


What would set your poker room apart from the others?

You would have to be a Innavator like UB... If you ask me, UB has outdone the competition with its RAISE program and the Bad beat Jackpot

But I would suggest these Ideas for consideration...

1. TRUESKILL- match fish vs fish, shark vs shark.... Dont let the strong prey on the weak, for it hurts a room more than it helps it.... Plus a TruSkill matchup would Make everyone a better poker player

2. Allow ALL players the option of rakeback.. Have different plans with different percentages of rakeback, And charge a different monthly fee for each... That way players who win more, would pay more to increase there rakeback... (and still make money) And If a player had a bad month, The site could make more money.... Imagine if your a good player and you can get 20 percent of your rakeback, back for only (x$) a month.. If you had a hugerake back, this would be very wise

3. Have your card generator developed by an INDEPENDANT company, and certified... How would you get it certified, (read the next one)

4. Being that it would hopefully be a U.S site, I would gladly let the goverment ( I said it) have a hand in it... Just like a real casino...
That way your player base would know without a doubt, they are not being scammed out of there money and would feel more secure about putting money on the site

5. (only avaliable for real money) Everyone pays a tiny amount of money a month like $1.00 for the use of an odds calculator that detaches directly to the room... Also allow pokertracker, but thats it.... All other forms of poker tools would not work... That way keep the playing field even for all players.

6. Start everyone off with atleast $5 in real money to allow them to experience real money (but only allow these players to play on Microlimit, PL only).. That way they can really take some time and see if they enjoy cash games... A deposit must be made to play all other limits


7. Jackpot like Ub



*That is just a few ideas, Pokerrooms have so much room for improvement, the limits are endless
