    How many entries do you guys expect? Based on the Sunday Million from today, which had 31.5k/42k I could see around 50k entries of the 92.4k. But there has to be major overlay…right?

    no way they come anyway near filling that

    Chance to win a milly with more than 15% of entries paid out and no max entries. I’d be shocked if it overlayed.

  • Redskins4

    They have been running a ton of qauls, I think it comes somewhat close to filling.

    It’s not next week it’s the week after. So 2 weeks out. I bet it gets pretty darn close. The real question is, is which pro will have over 1k entries

    No one will come even near 1k entries, I can promise you that.

    Let me ask you this. Where else can you get a 1/92,000 chance at $1,000,000? You will nevere see those odds again, regardless of how you feel about multi-entry. I’m laying as many entries as I can afford. How can anyone pass this up?

    P.S. It’s October 5th which is 2 weeks. Not next week.

    You say that like 1/92,000 is good odds

    How so? I am not saying 1000 different lineups. I am saying 1000 entries. So 27$ x 1000 = 27,000$.
    Let’s look at some past big tournaments. STLCards in the last big DK baseball I believe had 80+ lineups at 200$ a pop. Now yes, some were probably qualifiers as will be the case for some in this.
    80 × 200 = 16,000$. Now that top prize was only 100k.

    I think easily you see 5+ guys with 500+ running trains. Now different lineups, I couldn’t say, but I think this thing only fills if you have these massive ones.

    I am going to try and enter as many as possible, but lord like Seth said.. 1/92,000 shot at a mil. Gotta take it

    Right. I’d have to pay someone to fill out my lineup cards. No way I’d have time for that many.

    you have to remember that at the same time 16% cash…….

    No, but if I told you Powerball was up to $500,000,000 you would buy a ticket.

  • ksinn2

    If I had a disposable 27K I would enter 1000 times. All LU’s varying slightly. I would probably be 27K poorer but I also might become a millionaire. I spend more than this every year on my business and it does not net a million per year (yet!!). How much did you spend on a college education…. are you a millionaire? Just playing Devil’s Advocate here, but I think there are worse investments out there.

    Either way, Oct. 5th there is going to be one happy SOB out there!

    For a shot at 1 million dollars you wouldn’t have time for that?

  • GordonHayward20

    Hell even if they ran 100 diff lineups 10 times each. I mean 100 to make is viable.
    I mean it may not, but what is stopping someone like Smizz, Peter or Condia doing it. I’m assuming they have the rolls to take the shot and even if they don’t, bunch of these guys probably will have a piece of each other

    If you factor in the rake and the taxes for winning first place, well nm I dont want to get banned…..

    Come up with whatever list of Name players you want, with whatever number of entries they hold… I’ll take the field to win it.

    Yea, I think a lot of people have a hard time realizing what 92,000 entrants means. With that many slots (regardless of what overlay there may or may not be) I would consider someone a fool for going insane with something like 1K lineups. Even owning 1% of the total slots would mean you still have to beat out over 91K lineups. Not exactly the same as owning 1 lineup in a 100 man league regardless of what the percentages say.

    Actually 1% is 1%, brah

    No kidding…

    The point I was making is that owning 1% in a 92,000 entrant contest means you still have to beat around 91,000 people as opposed to owning 1% in a 100 man contest where you have to beat 99.

    Yes, the 1% aspect is the same, however by still needing to beat 91,000 people the issue of needing a perfect lineup still exists, where in a smaller contest owning 1% may not require perfection. Owning 1,000 lineups can help get you closer to perfection, but then issues arise as to whether or not you are actually benefiting yourself by owning that many lineups or if you have crossed the line and are simply entering dead lineups.

    I don’t foresee anyone entering that many lineups, but I would be very curious to see how it works out for them if they do. As for the 1% is 1% debate, I think we will just have to agree to disagree on that one though as it pertains to this contest.

    Taking down 1st won’t net you a million either…..

    I doubt you’ll see any ‘pro’ take too many shots at this. Because there is so much equity tied up into 1st, the overlay is basically an illusion

    Any pro you seeing taking hundreds of shots like this is just looking for glory, not equity, and therefore isn’t to be respected.

    Especially when you see the FD 1.25MM contest this week with 8 out of the top 15 currently have 0-3 wins in total.

    In that case, I am going to change my name to Field!

    A plan so crazy, it just might work :)

    What do we think, 70k entries? More? Less? Would really love to hear some thoughts on this
