BANKROLL FORUM

    I am curious as to what % of BR people who strictly play GPPs put in play per night, or per slate. Or if you play both GPP and Cash at what % of your BR do you put in to GPPs for the slate/night. I am referring to NBA but really this can be for any sport.

    I fluctuate on this and it is probably the weakest part of my game. I will go anywhere between about 2-5%. But on a lot of nights that I do well I feel like I could potentially be giving up a good amount of money. I am curious as to what other players feel and why they choose that number.

    I think BRM is a critical aspect of maximizing profits and any discussion on here with people who are having success in tournaments would be beneficial.

    It depends whether you are playing 1 lu, multi lu, and if multi, how you construct them. If you’re a 1 lu guy then, in my opinion, 1-2% is about right. The more lineups the more bankroll % you can safely play.

    Also, keep in mind the definition of bankroll varies greatly.

    I personally play multiple, correlated lineups. I’m not really sure how the definition of BR can vary…but for me it is what I am willing to lose playing DFS or the amount I have dedicated solely for DFS.

    Some people define it as whatever they happen to have in their account. Do you define it as what you can lose in a week, a month, 3 months, a year….? That’s rhetorical, but the point is that most bankroll % discussions don’t tell you much as people are rarely comparing apples to apples.

    Right, i think what pm is saying is that if you have $100 in your account on DK and lose it only to reload another $100, then your bankroll isnt $100. So if you are playing $1-2 per night then its not actually 1-2% of your bankroll.

    I hope thats understandable haha

    If you plan to buy back in if you lose, I don’t think you should even worry about defining what bankroll is. Just don’t play more on any given night than you’re prepared to lose.

    Personally, if you’re playing less than 10 unique lineups in a night, I would be prepared to lose 100% of your investment in GPPs on any given night, on your worst night.

    If you’re playing 20 unique lineups, I would be prepared to lose 65%-70% of your investment, on your worst nights.

    I try to manage what I have in my account with the intention of making money and not having to deposit. I play ~20 lineups, and put about 5% of my bankroll at risk on an average night.

    Okay, yes I understand that. Let’s assume a profitable player, no reload and that money for DFS is separate from other funds. I should have been more clear about the actual BR aspect in the OP.
    For me I have separate money, if I were to lose it all then I’d never play DFS again. So the actual BR is locked and only moves based on profits or losses from DFS.
    Assuming a profitable player, with no capabilities to reload I was wondering what kind of % of BR profitable players put into GPPs per night.
    I’m looking for profit maximazation and I was wondering what others do as far as % because I feel like I possibly leave a lot on the table but not playing a higher %.

    i personally play mostly GPP. I usually play around 3-5% on a given night and it can vary depending how much i like my lineups for the night. I.E. if i am feeling confident i may throw an extra entry in a tourney. I usually throw in 2-3 lineups, just to get some differentiation in there and so every night isnt boom or bust.

    I am by no means rolling in the dough, but ive been able to slowly build my bankroll using this strategy.
