    Draftcheat has been blowing him up on twitter today about busting out. Any truth to this?

    Who is this CONDIA?

    Condia found and edge and exploited it. There is nothing wrong with that. He was successful and we had to create rules to contain him. He is a legend imo. If he is actually down on his luck, there is no reason to celebrate it. Condia surely inspired many of the people you see filling up the lobbies today. He very much is a part of the growth of this industry.

    A footnote forever for the DFS industry!
    The few times I spoke with him when FD still had its chat he was always cordial and seemed like a nice guy.
    Maybe DFS at the level he was trying to and did pretty damn well in sustaining it just became too much.
    Guess we’ll have a new #1 with BIRDWINGS and CSURAM88 heading into the passing lane this summer?

    On a side note, what happened to DraftCheat.com? From the OP, I was thinking it was a website. It is, but everything is from March 2013!?

  • thefantasyicon

    I think it’s going to be hilarious when Condia comes out of the woodwork in 2 days and crushes everything…again. For you poker guys, the legend of Condia and the shit people talk about him reminds me of LIL Holdem. Whatever happened to that dude? Chad something…

    Chad batista was only a legend in his own mind, though he was a good mtter.

    Condia hype reminds me of daily isildur threads lol

    To answer your question probably jail

  • gjtgjtgjt

    This industry is very interesting. Most of the “top” players are not nearly as ROI successful as people believe. Of course there are exceptions. But even rolling 10% of your bankroll can bust you in 10 bad days. In the grand scheme, 10 days is nothing for a cold streak (of course, you might pick up a few wins by volume, but who hasn’t finished towards the bottom in a tourney at one point?). And it’s not like tourney players or mixed, who can pick up a few 1sts that will keep them profitable for years if they play it right.

  • whistexpert

    ^If you had 1000 dollars and played 10% a night, and if you lost 20 nights in a row, you’d still have over 100 bucks ;)

    With that said, the variance in this game is sick.

    You may want to double check your math on this.

    No matter how obnoxious or bad for DFS it was to have his game on every single league, there is no reason for anyone else like DC to be talking shit on someone when they’re down. Karma is real.

    He has made some decent scratch playing Live poker also…..

    Condia’s lineups had leaks every night and he was on a bad streak. It was only a matter of time… for him to take a few nights off and clear his head.

    Not saying Condia is perfect but it is easy to be overly results oriented and say someone has leaks when you see them performing poorly. People underestimate variance IMO.

    @Troll4MVP said...

    People also mistake the current state of DFS as the same as it’s always been. The reality is that the information that successful grinders (Condia, et al..) had in the past and kept for themselves is now given out freely which has decreased the edge.

    I think u guys don’t understand we are all going to bust out in a couple years no matter how good u are..Look at poker ppl can barely live off that with 5 percent rake and real rake back programs. Once the boom is over and the avg person knows about rotogrinders building proper lus. we are going to get raked out by the ridiculously high rake of 15 %..so if ur profitable now enjoy it for 2 years while these newbies learn..then take the money out and put it in a real investment..this is poker 2.0 with higher rake less rewards and an easier game to learn / play..

    You may want to double check your math on this.

    100/10 = 10 = 90 left
    90/10 = 9 = 81 left
    81/10 = 8.1 = 72.9 left
    72.9/10 = 7.29 = 65.6 left

    and so on…

    It is not:

    100/10 = 10 = 90 left
    100/10 = 10 = 80 left
    100/10 = 10 = 70 left
    100/10 = 10 = 60 left
