Poker Pro Only Selling Action To Investors Who Haven’t Heard Of “The Producers”
A poker pro known only by his online handle “Bialystock” took to a forum this week in order to sell action in events he’ll be playing at this summer’s 2016 World Series of Poker.
The post includes a typical sales pitch in which the player describes himself as a full-time professional with a lifetime tournament ROI of over 400%. He plays nosebleed stakes at small sites that “you probably wouldn’t have heard of” – PLO, mostly.
Bialystock concludes his offer with an unusual request: potential investors must be unfamiliar with Mel Brooks’ 1968 film The Producers.
We questioned him about why this strange stipulation was a prerequisite for investing.
I just hate that movie, that’s all. So much that I wouldn’t be able to play my best poker if I knew that any investors were fans of it. What’s it to you, anyway? I can choose for myself who gets to invest or not. You wouldn’t happen to be interested in buying 120% of my action, would you?
Several of Bialystock’s friends signed up to the forum to vouch for him, including users going by “Bloom,” “Ulla,” and “Bialystock2,” all of whom stress that Bialystock is a trustworthy individual, an excellent poker player, and a worthy investment.
