One debate point I have is the difference between 50/50’s – double-ups VS. head-to-head games. The argument could be made that playing head-to-heads is safer as you will most likely never lose everything unless your lineup completely tanks. While in 50/50’s or double-ups, if you have an okay night but only finish in the top 51%, you LOSE everything. Head-to-head offers more safety IMO, but also limits your upside as you will likely not sweep 100% of your h2h’s. I would be interested to see which is more profitable (taking the all or nothing approach in 50/50’s and double-ups or taking less upside for less risk in head-to-heads). Also the long-run difference between playing 50/50s or double-ups. I want to be a more profitable cash game player and want to be consistently making profit.
- side note * Has anyone else noticed that DraftKings have made it more difficult to actually find 50/50’s? On the App, when you select which categories you want, there is no different when selecting 50/50 or Double-up. Both show the exact same double-up leagues that you can join and takes endless amounts of scrolling to find 50/50’s and most are not guaranteed prize pools.
Thanks for the input!
