    It all started so innocently with me challenging the best players in the world to a 30 game single entry contest.

    Well its 2 years later and we have had almost all of the best players in the world come and join.

    The time is upon us once again.

    Here are all the details.

    20 $100 gpps and $500 side pot entry for overall winners. ($2,500 in total)

    All money collected up front. The $2500 is due at noon of the 26th in your dk account.

    Game Dates: Starting Jan 25th every 5 game+ slate till we finish

    Game Dates: (at the request of some guys who have been playing for years no sat and sun)
    Jan 26,27,28,29
    Feb 1,2,3,5,8,9,10,19,22,23,24,25,26,29
    Mar 1,2

    List of Players thus far: (40) We will not shut anyone out. I will adjust payouts based on final entry numbers.

    Payouts will be adjusted for final field size. Almost invariably a few guys drop out last minute. Currently assuming 30 players

    Payout for each single contest will be as follows
    $1000
    $700
    $500
    $350
    $250
    $200

    Overall Winner will be a hybrid scoring system. We will take cumulative dk fantasy points for all contests (dropping the one lowest score) to create the Consistency Rank. We will then also take total dollars won in all the contest combined for the Profit Rank. Form this we will create two power rankings.

    Assuming 30 players, first place in each will get 30 points and last will get one point. The player with the most combined power rank points will be the overall winner and Players Champs.

    Overall Winner payout.
    Paying top 4.
    First $5000
    Second $3500
    Third $2,500
    Fourth $2,000

    Consistency Rank Champ $1000
    Profit Rank Champ $1000
    (all ties will be determined by who won more money) but beyond that

    Any ties combine and split prizes. Hence if there is a tie for first and second. Combine the two prizes and split. This is true for daily games and side bet.

    If we get more or less than 30 the number of people paid out will be the same we will just adjust the amount of payouts.
    Deadline to respond to confirm you are in is 2pm Tuesday Jan 26th 2016.

    Are you up for the challenge? Can you be the players champion?

    1) In the past it has been zero rake. Kind of a thank you from dk for bringing in a bunch of new players back in the day.
    2) it is usually in your lobby with a ticket symbol next to it. But its on the individual to remember I post all the dates.

    Count me IN then. Thanks for setting this up!

    I appreciate the various invites I’ve gotten and it seems like a cool idea, but I don’t want to commit to any set schedule of DFS play. I’ll probably be spending some time in Vegas in the coming weeks, so I’ll be needing to take some time off.
