How do you follow up a $15,000 tournament that paid out the Top 300 finishers and was won by someone who qualified through a Facebook promotion(congrats to Microsusie)? Well apparently the answer is simple, you throw another $5,000 tournament three days later so people can try to expand upon their Friday night winnings. For those of you who have still been avoiding the jump to DraftKings, you are missing out on mass amounts of overlay potential. Friday night’s Mid-Summer Classic filled just over 1100 of the available 1500 spots and we can expect more overlay in the $5K game.
How do we know that there will be more overlay? Because the guys ( and Jeanine ) at DraftKings are working hard to intentionally provide overlay for daily fantasy players. They know that money is both the root of all evil and the very reason daily fantasy players wake up, eat, sleep and breathe each day! So every Grinder out there should be chomping at the bit to take advantage of this extremely rare opportunity.
The $5K Clash: Monday, July 16th
So here’s the deal, the DraftKings crew is offering another $5,000 guaranteed event on Monday evening for their players. Let’s keep it simple, here are the facts.
- The tournament will have a $22 buy-in, 250-man set up.
- The Friday night Mid-Summer Classic had only a $10 buy-in and only filled about 2/3 of their seats. I can imagine that the ratio of empty seats will be similar to that 2/3 mark. That means that you have a chance to take the first place prize of $1,000 if you can beat a field of around 170 competitors.
- If the game does stay at the 2/3 overlay mark, that also leaves about $1300 in overlay!
- The $5K Clash will also pay out the Top-50 players! So even if the game fills with 250 players, you still need to be able to finish in just the top 20% and you will cash!
The Prize Structure
As I mentioned before, the winner takes home a cool grand. But, don’t worry if you can’t take home 1st, there are still great prizes down the board.
|6th – 10th||$100|
|11th – 20th||$80|
|21st – 30th||$60|
|31st – 50th||$40|
So with prizes this great and almost guaranteed overlay, you should already have more than enough reason to hop in this game or join DraftKings if you haven’t done so yet. But if that’s not enough incentive, here’s a few other reasons why DraftKings should be on your map:
- 100% Deposit Bonus when you sign up through RotoGrinders links to DraftKings (up to $600)
- Daily $100 Freerolls plus a $500 Freeroll each and every Sunday
- Daily $2K, $1K, and $500 GPPs.
So don’t wait, just be sure to get onto DraftKings now and take your shot at a piece of Monday’s $5K Clash! Good luck and remember to keep on grinding!
