    I did not have any sizable single wins in the large GPP’s but cashed out well with my 3 team trains.
    Its funny that my RG rank will drop from 111. While I had my most profitable week. Even higher than 2 weeks ago.

    I had 175 entries: 3 week long teams & 2 Weekend teams.
    153 entries won money.
    22 entries did not win any money. (7 of those were .25 cent contests)
    55 top 10’s (includes any type of contest)
    26-1st (includes 8 H2H, but no smaller or larger GPP’s)
    14-2nd (no smaller or larger GPP’s)
    6-3rd (no smaller or larger GPP’s)
    9-4th (2 smaller GPP)
    1-5th (1 smaller GPP)
    5-6th (3 smaller GPP)
    3-7th (3 smaller GPP)
    1-10th (1 smaller GPP)
    9-11th thru 19th (3 smaller GPP)
    18-23rd thru 48th (15 smaller GPP)
    26-52nd thru 84th (10 smaller GPP)
    19-111th thru 180th (12 smaller GPP)
    18-227th thru 418th (9 large GPP)
    *I did not categorize my wins in the .25 contests as being a GPP win.

    I don’t think the delay did my players any favours, but still finished the week in profit so I’ll count that as finishing the year on a high, 3 weeks of no DFS sucks !!!

    You have to be happy about your consistent high rankings all year long.
    A lot of RG players did well this year. I think much better than last year.

    Nice job Aright and Jim! Fichardt killed me as I went 100% on him as well as Porteous who didn’t play great. Fortunately my only 5/6 team finished 101st in the $4 which helped me get most of my entry fees back.

    Really awesome…. Care if we know profit ? Played / Won ?
    I played $69.00 and won $70.00 big dollar profit… Sure beats dumping 69 like most of the summer…

    Announced today that starting next year no more calling in rules violations. Will have dedicated officials watching video.

  • timusbr

    wow, something didnt happen last night.

    The euro leaderboard allready killed “my team” from the site. Thanks guys,
    dont have time to see what final score is for my contest. I am pretty sure I need to send $5 to someone since I plummeted again. Will have final results this afternoon. will need paypal address.

  • ARightTouch

    Yeh way to go Jim you nailed it this week. Must have been a nice profit!? I got $297 back from $199 invested, basically just got back what I lost the week before! Next year I really hope to make a decent GPP finish and be more consistent, see you all in the new year…

  • tristanwolf

    nice job jim. too much blauuw this week for me only got half of my money back. shame dk doesnt have asian masters this week – decent field- rose, sneds, barnrat, frittelli, shankar, green…

    I’ll try to keep an eye on this to see who won but if I miss it send me a PM so I know who to Paypal. I had a great final round with I think 40% Van Rooyen and 10% Norris to go with my lone Sharma lineup but only had 6 in the $. Maybe I would’ve had a shot counting only top 5 but you guys had more 5/6 lineups to offset my guys atop the leaderboard

    Wow that ended up being close! Guess I made a charge after all! Fun contest guys

  • tbishop8

    Tim, any chance we can see who would’ve won based on the other formats you proposed? Don’t want to make a bunch of extra work for you but just curious.

    the last category…Its got a name the scoring system but I dont know it. I call it cross country scoring, you come in first thats 1 point you come in 4225 thats 4225 scored, low score wins.

  • JimKronlund

    Thanks all, Euro kicked my ass all year so the ducks fell in a blind row.
    Bet $600 up $1800. To risk $600 I think a lot of people would hope to win more. Me included, but I spread it around so much that there was a ceiling on how much I could win. Unless a top 10 in a large GPP. Which did not happen.
    What can I say. Lightning struck.

    Damn, I even cashed in football this week, again.. I cant believe it… Nothing big, but profit… I am going to have to figure out tax implications and find “that guy” that knows all the twists and turns… Think there is one in West Palm, heard him on ESPN radio (cohen show) down here…

    That is great, you did very well, congrats….

    I am wondering if we are all just doing well because it is the OFF SEASON and once the regular stuff starts it is back to the same ole 5/6 and no cash…

  • Quadhole

    Going back to the well again on SF T. Taylor… he should be a good low priced receiver this week. cost me last week…

    Quad, do you realize this is a backhanded congrats?

    Jim is good at DFS golf, playing a newer system. winning 3x in the contests he played is awesome. He has been very humble in his wording on his wins this week. I dont buy it, just a mark of a good person and one who doesnt have his head in the clouds thinking…like the Fan Duel commercial said. I win every week. Variance!!!, he came to the top in a tough week.

    with that said and no disrespect intended to anyone, smaller contests are easier. You dont get much smaller than Euro golf (mores the pity for my DFS ranking). Beating 4975 LU’s is easier than 680K LU’s. The % of cashing LU’s is also about the same. money is less. Everything else being equal. Its not talent or luck that made a 3x winning week, it was hard work, thought, and a passion for the golf.
