    DraftStreet High Stakes Update – Introducing the $100,000 Heavy Hitters Bracket Series

    The interest around the high stakes heads up series has been phenomenal, so we decided to take it to the next level.

    Were pitting 16 of the best high stakes players around against each other in a $100,000 bracket challenge.

    Round 1 will be a best of 3 series
    Round 2 and 3 will be a best of 5 series
    The Finals will be our traditional best of 7 series

    1st place = $50,000
    2nd place = $30,000
    3rd/4th place = $10,000 (no third place game)

    If you are interested in participating please reach out to matt@draftstreet.com and let him know. The buy in is $6500. We’ve reached out to some people already and hope this will be a who’s who of DFS high stakes players when all is said and done. We’ll have a dedicated page displaying the bracket and scoreboards so everyone can follow along with every game.

    Here is the schedule:
    Tuesday, May 20th – Ending Friday, June 20th
    No weekend games but we will be having games on Memorial Day
    Only two days with 1pm starts (Monday, May 26th & Thursday June 5th) the rest are 7pm start times
    All but two days will have 10+ game schedule (Thursday May 29th and Monday June 2nd each have 8 games)

    Some of those that have confirmed already:
    1. TommyG
    2. Maxdalury – 2013 DSBC Champion
    3. BrettFavre444
    4. G123
    5. AlSmizzle

    The official brackets/matchups will be determined by random draw and final bracket unveiled via Grinders live once we have all competitors confirmed. Reach out if you’re interested, feel free to post any questions here. Looking forward to seeing how this all plays out and crowning a true high stakes champion.

    Count me in too… As someone who will enjoy watching this unfold, not actually participating! Wayyy too rich for average joes like myself, which should add to the intrigue. This is a great idea that should draw a ton of interest.

  • leib0039

    AWESOME idea, I would love to be in it but like ez not enough coin. Will enjoy checking it out! Good work as always Draftstreet.

    I think it’s similar to online poker in seeing how the best play, comparing it to what you do, and about learning and getting better.

    It’s also fascinating to see who wins when there is so much money changing hands.

    What’s the latest bracket looking like?

  • Taylor

    You guys should qualify in a couple of seats into a field like this.

    Would be pretty fun to see someone do an NFL tournament of this nature, though you probably would have to do it single elimination style.
