2021 NBA Bankroll Challenge - Week 2

Hello Grinders,

NBA Week 2 in the books!

I’ve had up and down success this week. I won 3 days in a row then lost 4 days in a row!

Starting Bankroll: $500
Current Bankroll: $550

I’ve quickly realized that Double Ups alone are not a good enough strategy to build a bankroll.

For one, at the $25, $50, & $100 levels you see a lot of top DFS players night in and night out.

These are the same guys you see at the $250, $500, and $5,000 levels.

The competition it tough!

So I thought maybe to begin I should be smart and enter contests that they are not allowed to enter, $3 and below.

So I’ve restructured my Bankroll Challenge.

I am going to be starting with $500 and my goal is to get to $5,000

I am going to play roughly 5-15% of my bankroll each night.

I am going to allocate:

40% H2H
20% 3-Man
20% 5-Man
20% Double Ups

So for example, my current bankroll sits at $500 that’s:

25 H2H $1 entries for $25
5 3-man $2 entries for $10
5 5-man $2 entries for $10
2 double up $5 entries for $10

No GPP for now.

I’m starting this new allocation 01/06/2021 so next week I will let you know how things are going!
