    Important: this is not an attack on Kyle, I’ve listened to some interviews with him and follow him on twitter and he seems like a cool guy, this is simply a question.

    That being said, has anybody had experience with Kyle scooping your NHL h2h this year? I feel like he has scooped exactly 1 of my $1 h2h before i can even reload the page no matter what time I create the game. Is it possible he is using a script or software?

    You should video the process. Regardless of the man’s skills and/or determination, you should be able to differentiate if it’s man or machine. Bummer that he’s taking your dollar games, but it is what it is.

    Hes got a script that autoscoops a single 1 dollar h2h when you post. Im assuming there are some win parameters to it because it takes a h2h from me in CFB but not in NHL.

    I posted a few $1 games in CFB yesterday and he took the first one immediately. After reading this post I just posted one $1 h2h for tomorrows early slate on fanduel and he took it immediately again. I’m planning to post more at different times before tomorrow, we’ll see what happens…

  • Dmort21

    Does the same to me also, the first one to take my nhl/cfb games every time i post, no matter what price i post he is always the first person taking my games 5 seconds after i post. But i like taking his money anyway, its fun.

    Let’s relax here guys. Kcannon is buddies with one of the AMBASSADORS of DFS, csuram88. I’m sure everything here is clean.

    Wow, everyone is coming out now. FD needs to be made aware of this because this is specifically against their scripting rules.

    edit: even if confirmed, what will FD do? If it’s just a slap of the risk in the form of, ‘don’t do this again,’ it’s a pointless policy. It’ll be interesting to see.

    The sites clearly dont care, this has been happening for awhile now with several people that spend a lot of money to the sites on rake, take the rake and ignore the rules

    If you have money the sites wont care, has always been that way

    You really think they enforce any type of scripting rules?

    I’ve posted H2H all 3 slates and he hasn’t taken any of mine.

    When I saw the topic I thought this was going to be much worse. I know there’s a lot of sensitivity around here to automation and bum hunting. But if I read right, he took $1 of your matchups not all right? I could see how that’s frustrating, but is it that big of a deal if it’s only 1 contest he’s taking?

    Bowens, maybe it’s just wishful thinking. I know that sites tend to skate around issues, but they made a statement where they specifically outlawed this type of behavior. It’s time to put pressure on them to make good on their word.

    Nice humble brag. :)

    The issue isn’t that he’s scooping dollar games(that’s another story altogether). The issue is that it seems like he’s using a script to do so.

    Me and my 14 NHL career FD victories have just posted some $1 and $2 in the lobby….grab’em before the scripts do :)

    That would be true if it was only a 1$ game here and there, he takes my 25$,10$,5$,etc…. its annoying when i have to face the same person every slate, and very annoying when he does it in multiple sports. He also must have a script that only scoops a certain amount of h2hs money wise and quantity wise based on the amount of wins you have. Why can certain players be able to use something that not all players have easy access to on there site.

    You just got to beat him, yesterday in my Head-to-Heads he put up a 17 and played Lehner in goal. LOL

    He hasnt take any of mine either for NHL. The issue isnt him taking games, I dont mind playing him in 1 h2h for x amount of dollars every night. For me, using a script to automatically/instantly scoop head to heads of people with low win counts whether its 1 dollar or 1000 dollars is an issue.

  • Dmort21

    Oh how nice, i state a fact about him in the forums and he decides to take more games from me, such a great guy!

    Agreed. I don’t mind him taking the games manually too much, if it were 100% of my action it’d be a dick move but it isn’t. Just don’t think it’s fair to whoever gets auto scooped or others who are trying to take games the manual way.
