    A buddy I stake in tournaments won local satellites with buddies to cover $10K entry into WSOP this summer. I offered to buy 50% so he's guaranteed $5k worst case scenario if he didn't get in the money. Also told him I would go there for it to get comp room so he has no expenses basically. He agreed and liked idea.

    Problem is, his wife became upset over his frequent poker play (even though he's profitable, roughly 50k winnings and it's not his job) and basically forced him to quit so now he's not going to even go to WSOP.

    What would you do if you were in that situation? He's even tried explaining the potentially life changing money and still no luck. (And no he doesn't think getting in the money is easy, but since he has $0 at risk it's only positive outcome)

    Why not have him give you the entry and give him the $5k and then he gets paid and has 50% stake in you? Or more cash to him/less stake if that's what you are looking for

    Is the question what should your buddy do, or what should you do?

    In the former case, it sounds like a domestic situation that you probably shouldn't interfere in. Then again, I don't know your friend and his wife.

    Sounds like a shakedown from your friend's wife to me.

    Tell him to get his balls back from his wife's purse.

    My buddy. It doesn't matter to me really and I'm more so just shocked. I don't know the wife so assuming maybe more to the story than I've been told..

    The way their satellites were set up I think other people may have a small % (<10) so they probably wouldn't do that. I don't play poker either though.

    If I was him and I gave a shit about being married, I'd have a work trip come up that week.

    Buy him a plane ticket somewhere obscure where you know someone local and have someone check into hotel that he reserves with his cc and reimburse him for the fake room. Go with him to Vegas, gave him stay on comps, and make sure he doesn't use his cc. Have him turn off the GPS on his phone before he leaves.

    Check the fake hotel several times per day to see if wife is calling.

    If he wins a large amount of money, stash it somewhere in an overseas account his wife doesn't know about. Because that marriage isn't lasting forever and fuck if she deserves any of it.
