Poker Sponsorship

After 50,000 hands and long deliberation I have decided to go ahead with a sponsorship deal at Badbeat.com. I've always been tempted by getting paid to play but I figured taking 50% of my winnings was too much when I'm earning 2.6bb/100 (Yeah I know that's shit). Things have been drying up a bit as I've been seeing my girlfriend and not really having enough time to play right now. The idea is to leave my $1300 in PokerStars to mature (with the rising $ and the weakening £) so that I can withdraw it in a few months for extra £££. 

I had a session today with a mentor from Badbeat.com and after an hour of watching (and with some empirical evidence of my winnings) he decided to set me off at a $800 daily loss limit. Holy smokes I said to myself! I've never had that sort of money to play with on a regular basis. He wants me to play 4 tables of NL100 and then to slowly ween me onto 6max :s. 

Well hopefully it's going to go as well as NL50 has gone and that way I can turn semi-professional for my Uni career. Now that would be nice! Poker sponsorship here I come!
