    A $1,000 buy in contest limited to 7-entrants has just been added. Also, a $300 Gotham Q has just been added

    They have no choice now but to try to fill these up with what they got to work with. A whole card canceled forces them to fill these spots up now… Thanks a lot BJ Penn lol…..

    I got an email from DK pretty fast. There is no itinerary yet. Looking forward to this but also a little disappointed I won’t have the chance to meet a lot of you because there will be more non-mma contests running. It really sounds like they thought about this last minute and put it in the lobby with little thought. I am not trashing them and as Sun said I bet they will put on an incredible event! Too bad next week’s event was scrapped. You can only win one ticket to the event or else I would be gunning for more! :D GL GL

    They had a hard time and did not even sell out two of the battle for NY cards. I just wish they would have started this the same time they created the Gotham. They could have had a tourney for 20 or more people live then.

    To those who get to go the 205 card will be an event of a lifetime. Memories forever…

    I have never been to NY and after the last two weeks I just don’t think it’s meant to be lol. Finished second to H3Budda last week in the Q, and finished second this week too. Haha FML (to top it off I finished 2nd in the rumble in Gotham Q tonight too). 😐

    Same here I have never been to NY I would have loved to been able to win a trip to 205 but like you said it just was not meant to be.

    On the positive side MMA DFS is just starting to evolve.. There will be tons of opportunities in the future. I see DK doing lots of things like this with MMA.

    I was close, made two mistakes that I was questioning before the lineup. Was going to go with Marshall over jordy Nelson and riddick over west.

    I finished 13th and I here you on making a mistake. I switched last minute cooper for landry and if I kept cooper in I win. But such is life on to this week coming up.

    This week’s $4 contest in the NFL is upped to 60-entries.

    This week’s $4 contest in the NFL is upped to 60-entries.

    And lowered the amount of entries the first one was 2352 entries this one is 2205 and the reason they did all this is simply because they were oh so close to not filling the first one.

    I’m a little confused the rules for this are a little vague, You get a Grand for travel do they or do you have pay for the Hotel out of the Grand they give you?

  • Stratford17

    They put a grand in my account for travel, and a 1000 ticket for the tourney. No itinerary yet. They said they’d get ahold of me on Thursday or Friday with an update.

    If you get a chance when you do learn of the whole plans could you post them in here for us.

    Also Congrats on winning, Great lineup… And if I’m not mistaking I believe you only had 1 lineup in the whole contest?

  • Stratford17

    No problem, will do.

    One shot, just like Conor.

    Congrats on the win, Have a great time in NY!

  • Stratford17

    Thanks I appreciate it. I did get a follow up email a bit later mentioning that there would be a full itinerary planned including a group trip to the weigh ins.

    When you live by Conors rules, you win big haha. Congrats man. Thats amazing!

    Did you actually research your ass off for this? Was it a contrary approach?

  • Stratford17

    I have four kids and my wife was away for the long weekend, so I was so busy it was crazy. Listened to a pile of podcasts while I worked around the house. Had my buddies over for UFC 204 and only bet about 50 bucks total for the week. Definitely went contrary, it’s in my nature.
