The poker community is very quick to chastise and criticise those who underperform and especially those who scam (rightly so in the latter case). But the reason I'm writing this post is because I never read anything about a backer publicly congratulating their horse's mental fortitude and motivation when they've come out of a huge swing. Being staked allows somebody the freedom of playing higher than they can afford without the monetary risk. However, from a backer's point of view there comes a time when someone loses so much money they may seem to stop giving a shit about the tournaments that can't clear the makeup they're in. tonkaaaa mentioned this on stream about half way through this particular horse of mine's downswing and I worried it could happen to my boy. His downswing approached 1000 buy ins and considering when he joined he was making 8bb/100 (it's now pushing 10bb/100) it was a real test of his mental strength especially as he finished 10th-20th in tournaments that would have cleared his makeup in one go what seemed like countless times and he could have easily just quit and left me in a really really tough spot. Anyway about 3 weeks ago he came 2nd in the battle royale for 21k and 10 days later chopped the $700 6m 5 stack for 52k clearing the makeup and making profit. Not only that, he shipped what was owed instantly. Of course I was happy for me, but the guy has stayed with me here in London, he has a lovely gf who supports everything he does...I can see how these things affect people and it was great to see his happiness that his hard work paid off. So let's hear it for Terry Schumacher aka 'Raizzz' for being one of the toughest guys I know and for climbing out of a hole with plenty of perseverance and no complaints. Terry is a great horse, poker player and human being-be like Terry.
