Player Disputes / Player dispute - IgotUFish21

I have confirmed from my records that my fund is owed $157.41.

I might have old skype records to further back this up as the site it was on is closed, but would hope my reputation is enough if any additional funds are recovered or IGotUFish21 decides to do the right thing

ChipMeUp talk / Changes

Hi Everyone

Just a quick note here to let everyone know that I will no longer be working as an admin here on ChipMeUp

Since I stopped staking about a year ago I have had less and less time to be online and engaged in the community due to work and a growing family, so I feel after almost 8 years as a mod/admin, it is time for me relinquish my duties since I feel I cannot contribute the way I want to.

I want to thank the other admin for the opportunity to work with the site over the past 8 years and to all the members that have made this site great and will continue to make it great.

I will still be around from time to time, but if you have any questions or site related issues, you should pm the admin account.

As always if you have questions about staking or makeup etc would be more than willing to answer as I have done in the past

Good luck on the tables!

Player Disputes / Player Dispute - tiltemkid

I have reviewed your request to have your restriction lifted. When we spoke a year ago or so, I mentioned that you were restricted based on money owed on ptp and that you would have to get that sorted out.

You have stated that you have tried and have not been able to sort things out but wanted me to review and let you back on.

Unfortunately during my review I have found on 2+2 another amount of money owed and not address from september 2016:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/showpost.php?p=50712888&postcount=3913
https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/members/258516/
This was under a different username: notscared0 which was banned:

It appears as though you didn't address it and created a 2nd 2+2 account this year and was banned a few days ago when found out:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/members/477153/

Since there is another amount owing other than the ptp amount it appears and you have multiaccounted on 2+2 apparently without addressing it, I see no reason for you to be allowed to use our site.

Player Disputes / Player dispute - skippybp to floppybob $xfr

https://www.chipmeup.com/player/floppybob

We generally do not get involved in offsite disputes unless they are documented on another staking/poker site or forum. We have never dealt with reddit before. If you want to send me the link to reddit and maybe a screenshot of your twitter chat, that would be helpful. Also if you have the chat logs with ACR support, you can send those as well (mods@chipmeup.com)

I will link this post to his account for reference and him to respond, but won't be restricting him at this time as we generally don't restrict until we has some more documented info, and as i said mainly from other staking/poker forums

Player Disputes / Player Dispute - feugill79/LocaBella603

I would suggest that you contact robertwillis and sort this out as the event shows $50 winnings and he has said he has not been paid. you can have him post here when it is sorted

THere is a relationship between you and the LocaBella603 account, when there is an issue with one account, any linked accounts are also restricted until resolved.

What is your relationship with the 2nd account?

General / OT / CMU Investment Fund

as for the topic at hand, as someone who has run an investment fund and also hired two individuals to run small funds for me, I would say that definitely need more than $100 to start. I would say a minimum of $300 would be needed to ensure for swings and to take advantage of all opportunities that arise/not spread fund too thin.

The biggest issue i see is the rules surrounding people cashing out. It can become a real cluster fuk when people want to cash out at different times or leave in profit or down, or if say someone has a larger chunk invested and decides they want to leave, it puts a dent in the cash flow/size of the fund.

If you can set up some rules that encourage stability and people invest based on that, you will get alot farther, but ultimately if you want people to come and go as they please, you definitely need to be organized and prepared for it (as the fund amount is going to change frequently and the person running it will have alot more accounting cashing people out at x value, etc)

Anyway, just my 2 cents. Good luck and if there are questions on how I ran my enterprises (had stable, also ran SNG fund for myself and 3 others here, etc) would have no issue with answering them, just pm me or whatever.

ChipMeUp talk / Buying out of makeup after unrelated big score

I wasnt trying to say that things were not on the up and up if that was directed at me, i was backing up that I gave my opinion based on what you posted in OP, and something might change if indeed those were not all the facts.

My opinion remains the same that you should buy out for the $60k (or less the money owed, etc). This again is based on you giving two options of playing or buying out for 50%. Basically you made offer to buy out, he countered with the $60k - winnings from the outside score.

THe only thing you really have left is whether you want to keep playing for him, if it makes financial sense or go on your own. I think the buyout option is fair if you go that route. and it seems like the numbers either way will not hurt your friendship. I guess a more in depth discussion with him to really determine if he wants to continue or not might help to.

ChipMeUp talk / Buying out of makeup after unrelated big score

There are some flaws in your statement above about the backer or the horse being "nice" to accept or accept anything.

Based on the OP facts (dont know if they are right or not, but based on what he says), he has claimed he now doesnt need backing because of the score.

This isnt the backer dropping the horse. It sounds like the backer made the offer to the horse and the %. As the horse said, technically he could still play for the backer, but it really doesnt seem to be in his financial interest to risk increasing makeup at $1k+ events when the backer offered an out.

in addition, if the horse simply stated he wanted out, the backer certainly could claim all the makeup assuming their agreement was that he couldnt quit in makeup, but it sounds like he said, lets settle for this and be on our way.

Your assumptions in the 2nd paragragh create an entirely different scenario than the one laid out in the OP and disregards the facts that the backer made an offer for the horse to buy out. The horse could essentially say no, and say he wants to play it off, forcing the backer to either back him or cut him loose, but for a horse that is playing these stakes, has said he doesnt need backing and is working with a friend, it just seems silly to force that kind of decision, exposing himself to more makeup potentially, a larger buyout down the road (including opportunity cost of his % given away) and harming the friendship if it means something to him.

Just the way i see it, unless i am missing something or you have more facts to the case that OP has left out (either convo didnt go down as friendly, or horse trying to force backers hand, not backer making offer to end deal)

ChipMeUp talk / Buying out of makeup after unrelated big score

First of all, congrats on the massive score!

As for the question at hand, my analysis would be to keep it simple.

If your staking agreement is for $1k+ only, being ~14k in makeup is not too bad. this number can rise pretty quickly. Not sure if you have agreement that you cant leave in makeup, but basically if you dont need staking anymore, you should buy out.

Given that you have mentioned that you "could" still keep playing, I look at buying out for the ~7kish as a pretty good deal given that you continue to play, that makeup number could rise pretty fast, also if it does, and you then want to buy out, it is going to cost you alot more (assuming the numebr is higher and maybe the friend doesnt want to cut a deal)

Keeping it simple and if you say this is a good friend, I ship the $60k (or if you talk to him and agree $2k is owed etc) and i move on. He put the risk in you when you had staking, you getting a pretty good deal now that you dont need it, and your friendship moves on fine.

I wouldnt even really dicker over the $2k and just ship the $60 (get agreement in writing that you are free and clear) but that is just me, and despite big score, we obviously cannot know your total financial situation.

I just see it as a fair offer and solution for everyone to get what they want for the most part.

Player Disputes / Player Dispute - AceholeAA

So the first thing that should be done here is saying how much funds you have in your account right now, it is not your money and it should be going back to investors.

I would suggest sending it to CMU so it is in your cmu account until i have had a further look at this.

Continuing to play is not how things are done here, especially when the money is not yours

You also need to request a player audit from May 9th until today for me to look at. You can send me the player audit link to mods@chipmeup.com and make the password cmucmu

IF you want to do the right thing here, this is the start.
