Sir,I'll be glad to answer your question. It's an easy one too.Pressure!!!
Another thing about this Is,at least for me.I think I play better when I know that my backer has plenty of $.When I know that, I can play more loose and better.I never did like playing on someone's $ knowing they would be running short If I were to lose.So It's all about taking some pressure off for me.and maybe not having the $
Hope that helps,Bud.John B. I should add that It could be the player just doesn't have the money.

unfortunately im not someone stakehorses seek out
but heres my 2 cents anyway
if you are jew paul (from the stories i read) or dippy you are playing for amounts that dont matter .
if you lose your lifestyle doesnt change

when playing for amounts that if you lose you sleep in your car
carries extra pressure beyond winning or losing


so even tho assuming you care about the backer(not dumping)
one level of pressure is removed playing with a backer
if you lose you are in the same place

that little bit of less pressure should help you play better

thats my opinion but what do i know

I have played with backer's and I have played on my own...If the backer is a close friend, I feel more pressure, than I do playing on my own $$$. This is true, even if the friend just has a piece of my action. I think it is because I try harder, and take less risk on a friends money, and I don't play my normal game.

If the backer is ultra wealthy, and a big loss will not really hurt him, the opposite is true, I may play better...Bottom line, I prefer playing my own $$$..Then you can let the shaft out, with no remorse if you screw up...You are on your own..

That very same thing is what scares people who cannot or will not bet their own money. Not too many people were ever staked against me but I hated playing guys who weren't betting their own. The same guys who played tight and protected their own cash freewheeled and shot at everything on OP's cash.

I don't care who the player is, RA, Efren, or any other top player, if he ain't bettin' his own it means nothing to me what he's done in his illustrious career.

If a man can't bet his own he should get a job. If he has a job he should get a higher paying one.

Do you know how to operate a weedwhacker? It will be necessary after you have shorn & groomed the lawn to perfection. $30 a week is what I paid last sunday but of course the grass was so high in the backyard that rabbits & groundhogs were making out and you'd never have seen them in the cover provided. $25 would be a normal fee for regular length lawn. Get back to me if interested.

For $20 I can get four cheap Detroit hookers to cut the grass and give me a trim.

P.S. I had a goat last year but she jumped the fence and got hit by a Miller Lite truck .
