Suber’s thoughts on poker affiliate kickbacks got me thinking. What if we setup a Poker Affiliate Co-operative whereby the only requirement for membership is that you signup through our affiliate program and play the appropriate amount of real money so that we get our incentive. Once a member, you receive an initial bonus ($50 for example) plus ongoing profit sharing. So when the next guy signs up, you get a cut of the affiliate bonus.
The system would have to work on a “share” model similar to mutual funds, so that profits were split evenly by all members.
