Since I told Heffmike, I figure I may as well post it and let the resulting flames rain down.
Over a year ago I signed up to FT at the behest of a friend. When I signed up we struck a deal where any rakeback I earned I would be given half of. No big deal since I was only throwing $100 on here and i figured i wouldnt generate enough rakeback more than 10/month at best.
Then I came in 4th in the 28k. Good for $1300. With a bankroll I started playing higher stakes etc etc. And in my awesome memory I totally forgot about the rakeback deal with my buddy.
May comes around and I was playing 2/4 and 1/2 stud non-stop to get my first ironman metal. In June an offhand comment by said friend let me know that he got paid $50 for my hard work, while I literally ended up pissing my bankroll away. Now because I also share fault in not upholding his part of the deal I made no mention of our arrangement and I went about my buisness, stewing inside. And no, Im not mad at that person for it, and im sure he would feel bad if i did say something.
After speaking with another blogger, i got the idea to sign my gf up for an account to get rakeback for my cash games, and i would just transfer money to my account for any blogger games I wanted to participate in. Ironically at this same time the Hoy blogger drama was kicking up, which made me feel like I absolutely had to keep it a secret for fear of being the butt of jokes (i mean other than the ones about how i play poker) or even just ostracized from the blogger community altogether.
So it went this way for over a month until FT stopped letting me send money over to PB322 for blogger tourneys. So for the first time I played the Mook last night as 1Queens Up1. I got sat with some people I like, PirateLaywer, Evy, and Joanne. Again afraid of being "outted" I didn't say a peep. Tonight I was playing 1/2 HORSE when i got rolled up 8s and saw the initial raiser was Heffmike. We've chatted before and blogged on each others blogs and me being a friendly person (and him being mad at my donk play) i had to let him know who i was. The End
So like I said I had my reasons for doing it, I know not too many people visit this corner of the interwebz anyway but for any who do I just want to be considered a cheater or sneak or whatever. If you are upset by this, I am truly sorry but in my mind this was strictly a buisness decision (rakeback) more than trying to decieve anyone. Again Im sorry if I tick anyone off.
