    I saw this first thing in the morning without coffee, So many replies came to mind, but thankfully I passed it by without a reply at the time. I assume its a joke, but “the paranoid” in me said WTF.

    Have I noticed you in the minimax? YES, I even highlighted your picks, On several occasions, I calculated your loss/profit and ROI on the contest. It could even be said, I looked at your LU construction.

    I did this on player names I recognize. You just happen to be one of many. I compared my LU’s with many, LU construction is about Salary, personal picks, and results. I thought maybe there was something to learn in the review.

    EDIT: and what did I learn. MME (multiple maximum entry) is not the smartest way to play DFS. I enjoy the multiple entry, I love it …in fact. but the law of diminishing returns can be applied. I don’t know at what point. 20 entries is too small IMHO. 150 entries should not be played all weeks. Where the limit of LU’s to be made is as always a personal choice. I dont know where to draw a line. I think common sense in your LU generation is the key. Its easy for me to say because I pick a player pool and I experiment with the salaries, then I take a very systematic approach in making the LU’s by hand. Which I believe is not the norm for all of the players who MME the minimax.

    Sorry, bro I meant to put in a GIF there that would’ve made it obvious it was a joke. My bad … poor attempt at humor apparently.

    I actually enter 40 lineups each week, and then split my total spend on 50% cash and 50% MME as a hedge for the MME plays. Playing very small beans right now, trying to get a decent sample size for my LT ROI calculations, then if I am doing well with my current process I will move up in stakes as my bankroll (hopefully) grows. IMO, it’s really tough to win big in these low dollar MME’s, so I figure if I can get a couple big wins I will do even better in the higher dollar tourneys.

    I also construct all 40 lineups by hand each week, based on a very specific process for discerning my player pool, and then a separate process for lineup construction. I then construct another, different, cash lineup that I also usually throw in the $5 or $6 MME just for fun. My cash lineup is not overly chalky, like most, so it seems to do ok in the Drive the Green or whatever $5-6 MME they have each week.

    I’ve done fairly well half the weeks, and then only had one negative ROI week last week, and then probably this week as well, assuming my cash LU doesn’t cash — currently I’m only a couple places out of the cash line after today.

    Anyway, good luck dude. I am gonna see how this process pays off for awhile and then adjust if necessary. I also keep a journal of each process I plan on using, how it did, and how it differs from any other processes I might use going forward.

    I don’t want to root against my favorite golfer Justin Rose…so I wont…buuuuuut cashing that $10 40-1 ticket on Fleetwood would be sweet.

    They’re already pushing back projected start times. Slimmest of slim chances we are seeing any golf today, gents. Will be at the course by 7 EST.

  • jclem2115

    They’re hellbent on getting the round in today as the forecast for tomorrow and Tuesday are just as bad, if not worse, than today. Fairways actually didn’t look terrible on the walk up but the area got around 2 inches of rain overnight.

  • Guizzy

    Earliest possible tee time, 12PM. As per PGAComms twitter feed.

  • Jclements1

    Billy Ho just posted that if not today, then try tomorrow. If no tomorrow, then it’s a 54 hole final. We r here at course now and no way it plays today

    Is it still raining hard right now?

    was just thinking about the Ryder Cup. I am on USA side this year, LOL just like I lost a bunch of $$ 2 years ago when I was on Europe.

    Sergio being on the team is kinda a joke but….
    Justin Rose – currently 1st place BMW champ
    Rory McIllroy – T2
    Tommy Fleetwood – T4
    Francesco Molinari – T7

    and a good match will be Phil T69 vs Sergio.
    DJ can find some pootie in France, At least I hope he doesn’t fall in love with the white shit again.

    Just sayin, Europe isnt something I would bet the house against.

    Not incredibly hard, but I don’t think they’ll start prepping the course unless it stops due to the volume that came down. Should have an update soon from the PGA

    If it is shortened, it will become final.

  • jclem2115

    Pushed play back to 1pm EST at the earliest. Next update comes around 11:30. Still not looking good for today

    This golfing event is effectively OVER.

    Am I honestly going to be starting Andy Dalton today? Please talk some sense into me.

    Is this what I should want? I am positive on PGA, Euro I think I will cash $4 of $27 bet, PGA is about $100 of $71 bet. for a profit of $6 on $98 bet.
    I started out Thursday with a few bucks and it grew on Friday, I took a big leap on Sat. If it continued in that direction, lets get these holes in. Or should I take the break even and move on. LOL a weather sweat.

    NFL 3 basic team stacks – Houston, LAC, and Minn. Got a bunch of Minn and Chicago Defense and Showdown, I went out and took Graham as my capt. but no Rogers.

    Freakin NFL season is here, Gooooooo Football

    LOL, I dithered too long and couldn’t get Dalton and McCoy out of my LUs. What do you bet I take everything down? LOL

    Trying again. No golf today at BMW. Will try again on Monday but if they can’t get half the field done, it will be a 54-hole tournament and Justin Rose the winner. Forecast not good

  • whodat2

    I wonder if the AFRU70 will count if there is only 3 rounds?

    My lineup currently in second place of 2 winner take all $555 satties would not appreciate that.

    Mother nature is FULLY CONTROLLING this golfing course and subsequent golfing event.

  • BIF

    I don’t care if they play or not, I’m cashing now and doubt it goes up much if at all so just end it as I have to work and can’t watch anyways.

    Plus if they end it without playing I win the Jam Trifecta of H2Hs
    I’m winning both golf H2Hs (weekend and 4-day err, I mean 3-day maybe) but he is in striking distance and I won our NFL H2H today.

  • WidumBoise

    Mommy nature just keeps WORKING those cumulus clouds a little bit left to right.
