    CLEVELAND GOD FOR THE WIN!!!! I bet that dude is MADDDDD!!!!

  • petesdynasty

    I saw that too. That’s kinda…unreal?

  • CUTiger81

    IDK but I would be super pissed.

  • MikeSos760

    Aww poor guy. He wouldn’t have won as much, but that wouldn’t have happened in a single entry tourney haha.

  • deactivated84892

    Absolute domination! Proud of him!

  • CUTiger81

    Had to be an error scripting to end up with that many of the same lineup but pretty awesome for him nonetheless. Nice way to make ab $28k

  • Jamcity

    Nope. He purposely enters one line multiple times.

  • Kbry24

    Yup, I was in first all day until the train ran me over with 10 minutes left… Ya win some and you lose some.

  • prpmgroup

    Forget about the guy that finished 3rd. What about the guy that tied his 180 entries for the WIN and got $158!

    There is no reason not to cap the squeeze at 50 entries. It always sells out early and there are plenty of players waiting for cancelations.

    Congrats to Geazy for the fortitude to enter the same line up 180 times however this is still a travesty.

    No way in hell the Squeeze can offer those juicy top prizes at a 50 entry cap on $2.

    Dude had a hall of fame day in my book. The story behind how he made the lineup is even funnier.

    People dedicating time to hate on his accomplishment is really mind blowing. Dude doesn’t use scripts, doesn’t overthink the process.. He just made a lineup with MINUTES to spare and had an awesome day with it. Travesty is not the word. Amazing is more like it.

    Those cats on SIRIUS dedicating time to hate on it are just jealous.

    Your honest thoughts Gundacker on if YOU tied for first, beat over 40,000 players and won $158? Just curious.

    It sucks but them’s the breaks.

    I haven’t done the math but I imagine this wouldn’t be a tie had there been negatives for outs (or fractional scoring) still. So I’d be more mad at FanDuel than the guy who had a huge day.

    This is such a dominating take down of a tournament by a guy who was in class during lock. This should be celebrated and not trashed. Here’s a dude who didn’t spend 8 hours full stacking every game with a script. He simply made a lineup.. Rockies line came out MINUTES before lock, He made some frantic changes and won.

    Boom. Epic day. And the average Joe should be encouraged that he was able to do it from a cell phone in a college classroom.

    By the way, He only tossed in 180 entries into the Squeeze. Max is 250. This is something he’s done in the past and it’s a technique I use instead of playing quintuple ups. He just had the nuts and it paid off. Absolutely no reason to change the system because one guy who played by the rules succeeded.

    Agree with you. I saw the guy’s timeline on Twitter and it was 100% legit. And while whoever the guy is makes himself look like a major douche on Twitter (easy to do) mad props to him for having the stones to bet his money that way.

  • king813217

    181 equals to $$28,560.60 not bad paid day!!!

  • w3stcoastoff3ns3

    He’s a BOSS IMO. I would never run a train more than 2-3 LU’s.

  • biggiesmails72

    Why not just play the monster? Frustrating day for threejos

    He actually made more doing this than if he took 1st in the Monster.

    Ya but the odds of that happening is probably way way smaller than taking the Monster down, has he had experience in the monster vs this mass train strategy?

    Squeeze cash line is typically lower than the Monster.

    So the odds of cashing are better as well.

    It doesn’t sound like this is the case for this particular guy, but I’m sometimes stuck with trains based on late scratches or rainouts. I suspect that some of the trains that exist are because of this.

    I don’t intentionally play trains. But I do usually play multiple unique LUs.

    If news comes after it’s no longer possible to cancel LUs, I’ll sometimes just export a live lineup over all the now-dead ones. For example, I had 60 unique LUs in the $2 today. They all had at least one player from the Baltimore-Texas game, which had a weather concern. I had two lineups in $1 with no players from that game. If there was a last minute PPD in that game, I would have used the lineups from the $1 (which I made for that specific purpose) to export to the now-dead lineups in the $2. I would have ended up with two 30 team trains (and then as much jiggering that I could do before lock).

    Nothing you’re saying makes any sense, except for the part about being more “mad” at FD, if that’s how you really want to put it. If we’re going to talk about things in terms of being “mad” at one party or another, like we’re in junior high, then I’ll agree with that one thing, out of all your posts in this thread, that you said.

    Beyond that, who spends 8 hours “full stacking every game with a script”? The whole point of using scripts is to not have to spend 8 hours. What does that even mean? And the fact that he’s doing this in class is not something to be trumpeted. That doesn’t cast dfs in a very favorable light. If anything, you make it sound like the kid – and obviously he’s a kid if he’s in class – did something really dumb and got lucky.

    And you call it a hall of fame day? He did no better than the other guy! Yet he gets to walk away with five figures, simply for clicking (and being able to afford to click) a button 180 more times. If anyone had a hall of fame day, they both did.

    Now, if you’re someone who enters a handful of line ups regularly, with an account that probably never has more than $50-$100 in it, you put in the work day after day only to see your best line ups come up short, your biggest sweats peter out, your early guys go off but your late guys tank, your value pitchers get shelled so you start paying up and those guys get shelled too, and you start to wonder if it isn’t all just luck, if you should even bother continuing to put money into it, especially when you realize that even when your line ups “hit”, you’re still behind everyone who was on the same players you were but who had dozens of combinations of them, and the payout structures are so top heavy and you can’t come anywhere near putting in the kind of money they do. But you know better, you know about expectation and variance, you know you can profit, even if those big hits so few and far between that they almost never happen, or they’re just never quite as big as you had hoped they would be. So you don’t worry about how many line ups other people have. You just focus on making your own line ups as good as possible, like everyone says to do. You keep grinding, keep putting in the work, you get some nice finishes, but you just can’t break through. You seem to never get that lucky hit that puts you over the top, that punt play that goes off, that stack that hits perfectly at every position. Until one day it all falls into place. You get everything you need. After all that toil and tilt and all those long shitty streaks punctuated by intermittent small successes, you’re all alone at the top of a mountain of entries. It happened for you. Except it didn’t. You’re not alone. Because some guy tied you, and he had 181 identical line ups.

    I don’t know what you do if you’re that guy, but I know you don’t fucking say “It sucks but them’s the breaks”

    And by the way, if you’re going to say “thems the breaks”, use the plural, not the possessive. Dude.

    This was totally TL:DR but I skimmed through the cliffnotes.

    We gotta get you a snickers (because you’re not you when you’re hungry), explain what pro’s who use scripts/optimizers do (it’s not a 5 minute click and point process) and explain to you what Single Entry tournaments are.

    Otherwise. Them’s the breaks.
