    Glad to see it got resolved amicably. Surprised Kayroo did not post here but if he did I'd imagine something like:

    Initial staking post by Jason = invitation to treat
    Rebel booking 2% = offer
    Rebel shipping 2% = valid consideration
    Jason seeking confirmation, not getting it and specifically canceling prior to the event starting = No acceptance on his part that he had a valid contract with rebel

    I know that contract law does not apply here but I think that if it did, Jason is totally vindicated subject to shipping back the stake. the other argue,nets made on both sides, while well intended and interesting are not really relevant to whether here was a valid, binding agreement in place between the 2 parties.

    Oh - WP Jason - some score all the same

    Yeah i mean the way i see once you have sent the money to the person and the exact amount is in thier stars a/c via transfer from a SN you have sent them money form on numerous occasions in the past.... there can only be one outcome especially considering the unusual circumstances of working in the middle east and not having access to poker websites and the fact that the transfer was not shipped back before the start of the event. Also I would add that there is nothing in the sticky rules about having to confirm the purchase of a % after you have shipped the money to the person..........

    Perhaps it's not as much money to him, perhaps he doesn't want to explain to a friend or family what's at stake. From his POV he has no responding to do, he figures he's done all he needs.

One thing you have shown is that there is still a bit of honour and decency left in the game which is something that was missing a lot in my last few years of playing. Good karma for you next time around hopefully

    The other thing i also learnt is that you folks love a good drama
    +2,well said sir,fwiw i'd ask jt to hang on to the money and use it for future stakes,(say 2%)until the 1700 euro was spent,could be free rolling big score.nice offer well done.

    Congrats again on the result Jason, hope you make many more Major Event final tables and bink your fair share of titles.

    Fantastic gesture to Rebel and the charity although it was crystal clear to me that he had accepted losing out on the % after he missed the deadline.(imho)

    WOW. The price of success. Tough situation on both parties imo. Interesting read. Everyone loves a bit of controversy and it's a real eye opener in terms of selling %s . This thread will probably save a lot of similar situations from occurring. Fair play to Jason for doing the business in San Remo that caused 2% to be worthy of such discussion.

Before I got to blaaaahs reply though I found myself hoping he would pay - although i didn't feel he absolutely had to or anything. It was at least a grey murky area and your reputation is worth more than 3.4k. Lots of people read this thread but lots of people didn't and in the future it could have become

    randomer 1 - "who's that guy?"
    randomer 2 - "oh that's yer man that didn't pay up a guy that bought a % of him when he scooped big at some ept a few years ago"
    randomer 3 -"yeah that's him - i heard he likes to torture small animals too"
    eavesdropping randomers 4,5 and 6(muttering) "fucking hell- jaysus, what a cunt!"


    vwp on the resolution offered - and congrats on the big payday yourself!

    I read back my post and it looks a little stirry, apologies!!

    I actually feel for rebel now that i've digested it all. Jason does lay into him a bit in his post when you read it back and in all fairness he had a case in a shitty situation.

    Sometimes it's just hard to approach shitty situations.

    An upstanding IPBer just got more 'upstandier' in my view. WP Blaah.

    Think there were valid arguments and opinions on both sides expressed here and in BBV - it would have been so easy for Blaah not to do what he has just offered last night without any consequence to himself or his reputation.

    Instead he made the harder and more expensive choice - that takes character of an impressive nature.

    Hope your karma comes round to you in the form of WSOP bracelets and other forms of shippage. Class act.

    The terms with jason have been clear to myself and every other customer of Jason's are that:

    You offer to buy.

    It's accepted by Jason.

    You confirm funds sent to Jason.

    He confirms funds received.

    Rebel did not complete the terms.
    No, there's invitation to treat, offer, acceptance, and consideration. Sending the money is enough to complete the terms.

    It seems a shame to even keep this argument going, but unfortunately your analysis isn't quite complete IMO.

    FYI, the basic essential requirements of a binding contract are Offer, Acceptance, Consideration and Capacity to contract.
    There are a few considerations that could be brought up, but an alternative basic contract law summary could be as follows:

    Original OP from Jason could be viewed as an "Invitation to treat"
    Rebel's Post on thread asking for 2% could be viewed as an "Offer"
    Jason confirming it as reserved, could be viewed as "Acceptance"
    Shipping of the funds on Stars could be viewed as "Consideration"
    At this point a valid enforceable contract has been formed (capacity to contract is clearly not an issue here, and whether or not this is voidable for being a gambling contract I'll ignore as it could be argued either way)

    There's very little ambiguity about what was offered and accepted, nor that money was paid, so IMO from a purely legal perspective. What happens after each of the essential parts of the contract have been completed don't really matter unfortunately.

    At the end of the day though, the resolution seems adequate.
    The problem with this analysis is that in the end rebel gave no consideration for the contract - he was getting his money back if Jason didn't cash. This was unintentional on his part but is what ended up happening. The absence of the consideration is probably the most fundamental thing.

    But as you say a resolution has been offered, which presumably rebel will accept sometime in the next 10 days

    And everyone except rebel and jason should just leave it now (including me)

    Tbh i never really post in any poker forums anymore given all the shite that has been happening globally in poker these days this actually gives me hope that the games is not full of cons and arseholes. I'm delighted that Jason had the decency to make the best of a really bad situation for all concerned that basically could've been interpreted in favor of any side. I think Jasons decision is more than fare to both sides and I really dont think it could've been handled any more favorably.

    At the end of the day though, the resolution seems adequate.

    Finally when it comes to potential changes to the IPB rules, I'd simply ad in the word "how" at the end of the third paragraph so it would read "... it's 100% your decision if, how and who you buy/sell % from/to."

    IMO IPB is nothing more than a platform providing a communication tool, a recognisable meeting place and acting as a form of public record for these kind of deals, it is expressly stated they take absolutely no responsibility for anything.

    There is nothing stopping a person requiring the proposed 3 steps along with a fourth step requiring signed photo's of elephants to be supplied before a % is considered booked. If someone wants to specifically state nothing is confirmed until it's triple and quadruple agreed by PM work away, it's not upto IPB to police these things. They get absolutely nothing except for potential headaches from the staking and selling %'s forums.

    Having said that, if all potential popcorn threads were handled by everyone the way they were in this thread, this place would be even better, kudos to everyone involved, maybe we're all finally maturing!!

    Anyway, yet another €0.02 to throw on the pile!

    At the end of the day if this is a business. Jason is kind of like a retailer. He is inviting ppl to make an offer for a percentage of his tourney action. The ppl that offer to buy are doing just that.

    They have offered money for a percentage of his action. It is up to Jason or who ever the retailer is to accept or reject the offer.

    Just because someone sends you money doesn't mean you have to sell them the item.
    in this case he did sell him the product but retracted later when he did not think he was paid but the fact is he was paid and from what we seen he sold on few other times to rebel as well
    In this case jason owes rebel nothing as far as I can see.
    this been the case rebel does have a case

    on jason part i like to say you made a very good offer which i think rebel should take and congrats on doing same
