I have been a poker pro for the last 5 years and have only dabbled in DFS for a week or so, and its scary how DFS seems to be playing out just how poker did, It is hard to explain but when I read the DFS forums it reminds me of how the poker forums use to sound like.
So I am here to tell you the future of DFS
If you think its hard now think again DFS is still in its early stages, You will look back at this time and wished that you put more hours in the game if your a winner. There are still people that don’t have a clue what they are doing
The rakes will increase and will make the games harder to beat
The pros that have coaching videos are making the games harder and harder to the point where 90% of rec players will know how not to be bad and they will be challenging to beat after the rake even the coaching videos are still not that good
The most successful pros at DFS bar one or two will most likely will not be around in 2- 5 years because they can not win no more.
Young people everywhere will see that some random non pro with a cool name win some big money and there will be 1000s of them thinking they can do the same.
The forums get exciting again those young people making money are happy to shout about how good they are, share strategy and sharing pics of stuff they bought with their winnings.
Egos becomes bigger then ever and the young players will start to play each other, this will create super high stake action were people will long in just to see who won the 1 million head up battle. From the battles only a hand full of the 1000s of people will survive period and the people that has watch the players stories and this will start a new fanboy culture.
The emergence of new software and quantum computers that makes the software you have now feel like an abacus. This will make the games even harder then it already was, people will start to claim that the game is solved.
All the top pros will stop playing each other and claim that there is not much of an edge playing someone equally good.
Some young player comes from nowhere and starts crushing the top pros,(we will call him isildur1) they will all play isildur1 because they wont respect his game, before you know it the DUrrr player that you lookup to, that has dominated for the past few years almost goes broke by playing this unknown player called isildur1.
isildur1 has now proved that the pros were wrong about the game being close to being solved, and now the pros remaining are starting to rethink the game. With the new versions of the already amazing software the pros start really incorporate game theory to every selection and game and really do their best to try to actually solve DFS. This is the beginning of the end, one player will create a dream machine, they will type a problem into this dream machine and it will spit out a winning team most of the time.
Someone creates a bot that can beat any human player.
Oh I forgot to add that the US government will close down some sites, please do not think you will get your money instantly, it will take 2 months to 5 years to get your money back or you might never get it. If you live in the US you will need to move overseas to continue to play DFS.
MY one advice is Don’t be results orientated
See you in the future
