    Hey everyone. I’m a recent new member and love all of the content. I recently binked a GPP (pure luck) and would now like to start grinding small-stakes cash games with my new bloated bankroll and really learn DFS. I utilize LineupHQ quite a bit to get an idea of the players I’d like to use. However, after I find the core group of players I want to use and optimize the remaining players I feel it gives me back a lineup that should be used in GPPs. Does anybody have any tips on how to use the optimizer to make it produce optimal cash game lineups? Is there a minimum salary floor you don’t go below when making cash game lineups, and just exclude all of those players? Any advice on how to use LineupHQ to make cash game lineups would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Going to be honest here, if you are trying to create cash lineups via an optimizer with stock projections, you are not going to win in the long run. Yes, maybe a few nights here and there, but it’s just not a good idea.

    Now I’m sure guys out there have their own projections and that could work, but just loading up an optimizer and using the first lineup spit out is just going to lose over time.

    Optimizers are much better for mass entries.

    No, I 100% appreciate the honesty. Just trying to learn.

    Cash lineups should always be built by hand. If you use an optimizer to build cash lineups you are doing it wrong and will lose long term.

    Use an optimizer once you’ve narrowed your player pool and set rules/exposures to create multiple lineups. This is for GPP only.

    So to follow up, do y’all normally just use one lineup and enter it into a bunch of cash games? Or make multiple?

    I originally built my bankroll by going with 2 lineups per slate. Since then I have moved back to just building one, but honestly sometimes I am tempted to go back to 2 again. I’ve seen other top players use multiple lineups with a similar core of 5-7 players.

    The problem with multiple lineups is, if one wins and one loses you are still losing to the rake most of the time.

    On a normal slate I build one cash lineup and 20-25 GPP lineups.

    Hope this helps

    Not to mention the second guessing. Nothing worse than lineup A crushing it and only getting $1 opponents while lineup B is a disaster and that one drew all the higher stakes matches
