Phil Ivey* may have broke a fair few Vegas pros with his infamous bracelet bets, after taking down WSOP event #8 in the early hours of the morning, but he wasn't the only player to benefit. That is because one very smart bidder named 1000cuts paid just $9.33 for 3% of Ivey in this event at ChipMeUp and walked away with nearly $2,000 as a result.
Every day players around the world head to ChipMeUp to buy and sell percentages of each other in online and live play. You can stake an up and coming grinder in a $5 MTT all the way to global superstars like Pokernews own Tony G, who so far hasn't disappointed. As well as staking a small army himself, Tony has come 3rd in an EPT High Rollers event and cashed in the $40,000 event at the WSOP for his backers at ChipMeUp. He already has an impressive ROI of 67.32% and total ChipMeUp winnings of $760,470.
If you really want to gamble, UK Pokernews Editor Barry Carter is selling a piece of himself in this weekend's £20,000 guaranteed side event at Dusk Till Dawn.
