Default Ghosting Euro Poker Rooms Idea - Access to new juicy games!

Hi all,

I had an idea - not sure if it has been discussed before.

Would any of you top cash game players be interested in playing on the European only sites? They are stuffed full of fish and often have high stakes tables available. 25/50, 50/100 and 100/200 are generally busy during evening times.

What if you were to ghost me (I am from Ireland) over Skype. I put up the funds to play and you put up your share with another reputable player as a holding facility. Following winning sessions we cash out or come to an agreement.

Benefits for you: You have access to new juicy games that you could previously not access being in the States.

Benefits for me: I get to learn from top pros and develop my game.

The point of the post is that you could now have access to a wide range of very fishy games. NB: most euro sites are an extension of a sportsbook and therefore attract a huge amount of gamblers, rather than poker experts.

Food for thought?

PM me if you would like to discuss.


(Mods: Please remove this post if it infringes on any of your T&C's. It is meant as a possible tool for top players but if you feel it is inappropriate then feel free to delete. TY.)

NB: If players consider this unethical please let me know and I will remove the post. Perhaps ghosting like this is a bit below the belt for other players?

Its a lot harder to play HU and 3 handed when you r not actually clicking the buttons imo.

I think any difficulties like that could be quickly overcome... particularly playing 6-max. Also, having playing regularly on almost all Euro sites I am already very familiar with all software.

I imagine we would also have some test sessions on the mini stakes to build highly effective communication foundations between ghoster and player.

HU could be problematic but certainly 3 handed+ could be very profitable. I believe the bulk of profits would come from multi handed games anyway where there are less poker speciliasts and simply more gamblers.

There are a number of high liquidity sites with very active games, e.g. ipoker network, Ladbrokes, Party Poker, Everest, Betfair. All of these have very juicy high stakes games infested with fish.

To be honest I am surprised this idea has not been proposed previously...or perhaps it is actually something players already do?

If anyone would like to PM me to discuss in detail please feel free.

Correct me if i'm wrong but couldn't you take this one step further and remote access his PC and then click the buttons yourself?

I'm actually surprised nobody is offering a service of a European computer being used for the sole use of remote access and US players using them. Or maybe it's just a silly idea?

I would be willing to do something like this for no profit. I would not be able to put up any funds. PM me if interested.

Mark.

The remote access for US players is not the problem. Someone could just set up a proxy in Europe and then the US players could use their own machines. The problem is a Europe address.
