Dfs Paradox: Shall We Play A Game
The DFS Paradox
I came to DFS from a poker background and the first thing I noticed was that there was no barrier to entry for good players. Meaning the best players could play from $.25 to $10,000 games with just a few clicks. In poker the best players played the highest stakes they could win at to maximize profit. So you wouldn’t see great poker players in a $1-2 no limit game.
At first, this really bothered me and I complained like many dfs players do.( Not unfounded) Recently it occurred to me that I play dfs for the challenge of it and in truth that is also why I played poker. In DFS I can match wits with the best out there for a few dollars a night. In poker you would have to play high stakes to get the same type of elite competition.
The paradox that I speak of in the post title is that I have reduced my level of play and still get the same amount of fun. The elite dfs players have actually hurt themselves (against me) by sinking to lower stakes, hence altering their maximized profit.
I’m a high vAriance gpp player with a near breakeven ROI. I play DFS for fun and as a hobby. This may be long winded, but in summary the lack of scarcity of playing against the elite dfs competition has made dfs more fun for me. Namaste.
