    Good stuff. I’m kinda surprised by your shift from ‘Get it while the getting’s good’ to this more laid back social life guy. I know you’ve made some money since starting this but has it been enough to say you’ve “got it” now? If not I’m curious about the shift in priorities?

    I’m trying to take a bit of a longer term view of this thing myself, thinking it might still be around and profitable 5, maybe 10 years from now. Still, grinding 12+ a day from MLB opening day-week 17, at least for 2016.

    Great video, I love your down to Earth attitude and perspective. You nailed it when it comes to judging the best DFS players. The only issue I have with sample size is comparing who is better based on volume really is not an apples to apples comparison. If you take two players with different bank rolls and different frequency of playing can you really measure who is better. For example if player A plays $1000 a day across 10 contests and win 75% percent of the time is he really a better player than player B who plays $100 a week across 10 contests and wins 80%. Player A is obviously making more money and winning more contests, this does not necessarily make him a better player just more successful because of the volume.

    The problem with judging who the best (at anything), whether it be DFS, sports or the stock market is bias and perspective. Your comparison of Cash vs GPP players nailed it. Cash is much more of a long game, success is judge by how much money you won over a period of time. While, GPP is much more about the number of times you won, how many live finals, etc.

    For me personality I think we are still in the early days of DFS. When we look back 5 years from now the DFS landscape will be a lot different. By then we will be judging who the best DFS players are by who has been able to sustain long term success.
