    • 2015 FanDuel WFFC Finalist

    Anyone have any insight on why the qualifiers this week do not have any prize pool outside of the WFFC ticket. I mean it was always thin but thin was better than zero.

    I think a better question which I have yet to see posted on these forums is why it’s acceptable for Fanduel to be running 17 different 3-man WFFC qualifiers this week for a $18K buy-in. Fanduel pretty much is giving the big bankroll guys an opportunity to easily grab tickets to the championship while spitting in the face of every “common” dfs player who cant afford a 5-figure buy-in & especially to anyone who may have qualified in a cheaper contest earlier in the year but now has the daunting task of having to beat even more pro’s in the championship.

    I really think all qualifiers to all championships should be mapped out in advance from now on with all costs for buy-ins shown up front so people can really know what they are getting into. I would NEVER have wasted any of my small bankroll on these qualifiers if I had known Fanduel would just open the flood gates to the biggest sharks at the end of the year.

    Agree with you 100% Paul. $1500 and $5000 entry fee qualifiers already exist and most of the spots in those contests probably belong to the bigger bankroll guys. Having an $18000 entry fee qualifier probably eliminates 98% of the DFS community from even considering it. Yet the pros with the huge bankrolls can freely enter even the smallest of qualifiers. Great job by FanDuel catering to the sharks. Keep up the good work.

    I saw that and am not excited about letting the sharks in. However last year, none of the sharks finished in the Top 10 during the Final. I guess without their 150 entries, they are no better than you or me.

    Obvious answer is it shrinks the field which also helps them eliminate overlay. I’m actually a fan of the 100 man $600 3 entry max one they have for NBA tonight. Bubbling will suck, but buy in is not over top and likely won’t take a top 2% lineup to win with only 100 entries.

    This is a brilliant idea. Is it possible? It should be fairly simple for the sites to calculate how many satellites and qualifiers they need to fill the 100-150 seats, right?

    From what I can tell, the sites just make it up as they go along.
