Hey there everybody! I’m Bobby Firestone, one of the Rotogrinders hosts, writers and a professional DFS player. I go by the handle ‘BobbyFi’ on most DFS sites and am ranked in the top-100 overall. The fine people at Rotogrinders have asked me to do an AMA because apparently you good folks tweeted my name as someone who they wanted to do it.. So, thank you and here I am!
Some basic info about me:
- I started working at Rotogrinders in September of 2016.
- I started playing DFS professionally in July of 2015. Before that I have had a variety of different professions, from Sales, Real Estate , Working on a boat, Working for a nonprofit focused on mental health and I was a professional poker player for 7 years. There are a lot of others but I don’t want it to take up the whole thread.
- Grew up spending about half my life in Santa Barbara/Los Angeles and half overseas until I was 20 and still travel a lot.
- I stopped going to school to start working before I finished high school. I was 13 but would have been a senior as I was home schooled most of my life making it easy to get ahead.
- I’m a huge Laker, Dodger and Bruin fan!
- I have a terrific 11 year old daughter named Karina.
- I have sailed around the world a number of times.
- I play mostly almost exclusively GPP’s.
- I’ve qualified 5 entries in 4 different live finals but most of my big wins have come elsewhere.
Anyway, shoot me any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them throughout the week. Thanks again for your interest!
Let’s have some fun!!!
