    cool story bro. if you think you may be that good, you down for some MLB HU4ROLLZ?

    IV never watched an MBL match in my life and only started looking at mba stats last week ( i dont even watch it), not for rollz but if you want I will play 10-$10 HU MBL games if you will play me 10- $10 MBA games, Im bit busy this week but you we can book it for next week.
    But $200 might mean nothing to you, but atm im not willing to go higher, we can play at bigger say 4 25$ HU.

    and boom Jellydragon box mail just exploded – too many DK invites on mbl and mba contests

    They need more .25 leagues so I don’t feel tempted to buy-in to a more expensive lobby if there aren’t any quarter spots available.

    Deposited $100 total and currently have $2.16 remaining. What is the best best strategy to recoup my losses? I’m good at NHL and eSports and can consistently place in MLB, but I got greedy and decided to play all my winnings in one night… On the same lineup (cringe)

    Should I double the $100 and deposit $200? Should I try putting in a little more than double to give me a better opportunity for success?

    $100 is not too much for me and I’m okay losing it, but I’m pretty sure I can make it back with more time commitment. I’m just not sure the best amount to start over with when you are -$100.

    Should I try cash games or GPPs?

    Before u do all this stop and think…. if you dont use bankroll management you will lose in the long run no matter how good you are. Im no DFS pro (but a poker one) so u need to go do research in whats the best BRM strategy do not play one game unless ur just trying to have fun until u figure it out or we will be here in 5 wears talking about how you blown your big win.

    You didn’t really provide any useful content. Telling me I will lose in the long run is not very helpful. I understand more players lose than win and if you read my post above you can see I said “I’m okay losing it”.

    Bank Roll Management is an obvious answer, but I’m asking for somebody to speak from personal experience. Double up on your losses? Cash games or GPPs in my situation?

    Some ups and some downs. I started around the first week of March this year. Won $75 (1st/588) in my first $1 GPP, 2nd day ever playing DFS. After that I took more risks and lost most of my FD bankroll. Re-loaded my acc with another $25 or so, won some- lost some, ended up breaking the bank again. Eventually I got fed up with FD (MLB scoring, no swaps, etc) and made my next deposit on DK.

    Since then, I’ve had good luck with eSports (absolutely love eSports and hope they add CSGO eventually), some MLB, some PGA, and a love-hate relationship with my favorite sport, NBA. Seems expert analysis is almost always the downfall of my NBA bets; my winrate is much higher with gut-feeling lineups and personal opinion. Taking a look at my strategy-differences among sports I have been profitable in, one of the biggest things that sticks out is lineup construction and exposure. How many times you have you heard “no such thing as ‘sure’ thing?” Well, that’s absolutely correct. Don’t put all of your monies on a particular ‘stud’ or ‘under-priced’ player because you can easily be wrong. Build your lineups with reasoning and logic. For example, in lineup 1; teams x, y, and z do well, being carried to victory by players a, b, and c. Construct multiple lineups that cover all reasonable possibilities and you will see certain lineups stick out and generate a higher average for your top lineups of the night. Obviously, this is for GPP players, but that’s where the juiciest payouts are and cash games are kind of self-explanatory anyways.

  • Gotembaseball

    Many will likely disagree but your best bet at being profitable is playing GPPs only. The reason being is majority of H2Hs are against guys better than you. That sucks to accept but it’s the reality. With GPP you can lose for three months in a row and then one contest erases all that.

    With gpps you have to understand the min cash is actually not a win it’s just the opportunity to play more without depositing. If you play daily and are above average you will win or take a top 5 spot in a gpp at least once every 3-4 months. I’m talking $25 GPPs and up. The smaller $ GPPs the harder to win obviously.

    For me I play for that big cash (15K+) that happens once or twice a year. The rest of the time I’m ok losing daily because I know the big cash will come.

    If you are grinding H2H the big cash will NEVER come and on top of that you have to beat players better than you 60% of the time. H2H is a losing prop for a casual player long term but any joe off the street can win a gpp.

  • Gotembaseball

    The other HUGE component is you can’t be someone who worries about losing and losing a lot. If you are a guy who deposits $50 and thinks they will make huge sums of money you are it most cases mistaken. IMO you must have access to at least $500 at any given time to really be successful doing this. Small bank rolls winning are not the norm. In fact quite the opposite.

    I lose and I lose a lot. At the end of the year though I usually get a a 1099. The reason being is I have more capital which gives me more opportunities to still play after losing three months in a row. If I played H2H I’d never be able to recoup the three months of losses (granted i wouldn’t lose as much in that time). The point being is GPP is where it’s at and you cant be scared to attack on certain days. People become afraid and lower their yearly ROI because they dont have the income to weather a storm so they constantly need to be aware of how much is in the account.

    Say for example you have $100 in your account but know you can reload tomorrow you don’t mind throwing 4 lineups in the $25 Slam (BTW IMO the $25 contests on FD are the best). One of those four lineups might bing and boom you are profitable. Maybe it’s the 4th LU that bings. If you play scared or don’t have the resources to reload you probably dont play that 4th LU and you end up losing.

    TO Be Continued because long posts suck

  • Gotembaseball

    If I was a player with $100 to my name first off I’d buy groceries (Kidding we are all degens we deposit).

    Anyway lets just say you only had $100 and that was your last $100 ever. What would be the best way to utilize that $100 to insure the longest amount of playing time while also maximizing profits.

    Sure you could play one $1 H2H per day and even if you lost every day you still played for 100 days. You could do that same thing and win every day and have a net profit of $90. What fun is that? For me none.

    If I had $100 to my name I’d play it this way (Talking MLB). First off I would wait until the right days to play. What I’d be looking for is a reverse line movement on a chalk pitcher. Even better if there are two or three on same day. I already know going into each slate who the chalk pitchers will be (you should too. If not you will never be profitable) Once I see that reverse linemovement of a heavy chalk player I decided today is the day I risk 10% of my BR. So I enter 5 LUs in the $2 Squeeze. All Lineups avoid the chalk pitcher. All Lu’s have the same core of 4-6 players. Hope for the best.

    If Vegas was right which they are more often than not you avoided the chalk landmine and are already ahead of 30% of the field minimum. Now you need your core to go off. If they do even average you are almost a lock to cash. Cash all LUs because you used the same core. If vegas was wrong you still have a chance but for this post lets say you lose.

    TBC

  • Gotembaseball

    So you lost. BIG FN DEAL. You still have 9 shots. Now don’t bust a nut the next day unless Vegas says its ok to do so. Wait….. Wait….. Wait…. Wait for the chalk to be reverse again and use same strategy.

    You lost. Rinse….. Repeat….

    If you pick your days wisely, have a decent understanding of the game and use a core group in all Lineups i would bet you that $100 you will 100% be playing that way more than 10 times. Continue doing that until you bust or until you can jump from $2 to $5 the $5 to $10 so on so forth.

  • Gotembaseball

    ONE LAST THING AND I SHOULD HAVE STARTED WITH THIS.

    If you have a limited bankroll and want to go the GPP route (which i strongly suggest) you need to be sure to use three of your five entries in a three entry max GPP. The remaining two go to the larger GPPs.

    The three entries max GPPs put you on a level playing field with guys who have $100 × 10,000 and are best for long term sustainability.

    I completely understand what you’re saying. But for right now I think I am going to try to build a bankroll of like $100 from doing 50/50s and then go back to GPPs.. the past few nights I’ve been doubling my money so I think I will stick with that until I have a bank roll to work with.. I will be able to deposit more money within the next few weeks to help out but I’m 21 and in school so money isn’t coming easy to me right now..

    Also when you say chalk pitchers do you mean the pitchers that are projected to win and be in most lineups?

    Yes in terms of Chalk that refers to highly favored pitchers in good matchups.

    Just so you know. Depending on the 50/50 the cash line isn’t that far from the cash line in the GPP. especially a multi enter 5050. I look at it like this. Almost the same score needed without any of the upside.

    That being said avoiding the reverse line chalk pitcher is a great way to cash in 5050s

  • Joc31

    Playing cash games with a small bankroll is the easiest way to stay a fish forever.

  • tvsfrink

    Man, so much cash hate. The cash line is lower when 50% of the field cashes instead of 20%.

    In theory yes. But in practice, with all the touts giving away their best picks and at least 3 free optimizers out there, min cash in 5050s is getting tougher. And with people throwing in so many busted stacks to gpps those are getting weaker.

    Listen to Gotem, kids. He speaks the truth. Do you really think maxdalury, youdaco, beepimajeep, condia, et al hit the big time grinding out a 60% win rate in cash games? Hell no.
