    I am using the analysis of data to draw a conclusion and ask questions in the alleged scenario (the data is not alleged it is actual data). My views are not to be interpreted as fact but to allow individuals to determine if they feel they are playing a game with integrity or one that is monitoring for violations of entry limits and rules.

    Is this a form of circumventing Entry limits and or an alternate form of multi accounting (regardless of if they are actually two individuals)

    If two brothers or individuals take 50% of each others winnings and agree to risk the same amount every night (enter the same contests with the same number of entries) is this a violation guidelines/rule. Of note they may not technically be “pooling entry fees” as brother A does not send brother B any money for entry fees they just sum up or net profit at the end of the night and reconcile.

    They max enter every gpp mlb contest (for the max entries below 150 they don’t overlap entries (they may also not overlap for 150 but I am not digging through all that data as DK supposedly has a game integrity department that is supposed to be monitoring this stuff).

    Let’s look at 9/13 2016 data, the data for 9/6 shows the same as well and we can look at 9/20 data when that’s available: (my guess here it’s the same every day but just taking the Tue slates as that’s the big prize for DK)

    MLB $600K Power Hitter ($444, 45 max) – Chipolteaddict 45 entries, papagates 45 entries no lineup overlap

    MLB $30K Warning Track ($150, 3 max) – Chipolteaddict 3 entries, papagates 3 entries no lineup overlap

    MLB $5K Deep Mini Moonshot ($3, 50 max) – Chipolteaddict 50 entries, papagates 50 entries no lineup overlap

    MLB $10K Slider ($3, 3max) – Chipolteaddict 3 entries, papagates 3 entries no lineup overlap

    MLB $150K Payoff Pitch ($27, 150 max) – Chipolteaddict 150 entries, papagates 150 entries (I am not digging through 150 to determine overlap or not, other people are supposedly paid to do this)

    unlimited entries is not illegal within a gpp that has a cap on number of total entries. They are talking about individual limits No?

    I beat chipotle and papagates every single time I play them head to head or in leagues. they do in fact play together which is against terms of use. I have confirmed that they work together I cant give out my name but I am a top player in the world. I have over 50,000 paid contests entries and they do in fact cheat. my question is how is fanduel letting this happen. I kinow they know…. is it because they bring hundreds of thousands in entry fees to fanduel everyday? can they be sued?

    Check out Fantasy Draft tonight. If I could post a picture here I would. NFL – $150,000 Run and Gun. Kind of odd that this is such a pattern…

    I noticed that after DraftKings and FanDuel investigated the two men, Chipotle King’s brother mysteriously disappeared from playing any of the fantasy sites. Unfortunately Chipotle King is still around. If they weren’t cheating, why’d his brother bow out soon after the investigation was started on him even though they successfully talked themselves out of getting into trouble for fraud. They should have handed the case over to authorities instead of doing an internal investigation. Today, I saw that he put his usual 150 entries totaling $600 on one of the games. You don’t need that many entries. The more you do, your average score goes down. What he’s doing though is gaming the system so he could win at lest one prize on each level. I noticed that he too tries avoiding games too with too many people in it so he could get a guaranteed win or some sort of cut from the prize too.

    His brother is still playing. And he is still playing. But hey, they give to charity so it makes it ok!

    Him and his brothers aren’t giving any of those winnings to charity-the only charitable organization they give it to is right back to FanDuel and DraftKings, lol! They drop all this money on entries and they are lucky if at least one of the entries nets them something when they put in for the cheap entries that have a big prize pool. I did finally see his brother on the site last night but I didn’t see him the day before.Both aren’t doing so hot lately from what I could see. On the 5th or 6th, it was funny. Chipotle Addict dropped $600 on this one contest (equaling 150 entries total) and one by one he withdrew them. It was for that $400,000 game where the 1st place person gets $100,000 and the rest of the prize is distributed to the bottom feeders up to I think 1,000th place or something. That contest has about 60,000 participants in it on any given night. I think it was for the $8-9 entry one. Then yesterday, he did the same thing too where he dropped all the entries spending roughly about the same and none of them earned him a dime on that game. His brother dropped a fraction I would say about 50-60) of the entries and only won $100. They don’t know how to draft pick and it’s usually the ones only entering only 1-5 entries max that would whip their behinds really bad. This is why they stay away from the contests that have too many people in them and the entry fees are too high for the average Joe to afford. They know that all them people will steamroll them like last night. You don’t see them hardly in any games where the entry fees are $10 or less with the exception of the games with prize amounts of $100,000 or more. I can’t imagine how they keep tabs on so many entries. What if someone gets injured or are put out? The points distribution gets smaller too with more entries you put in too making it less likely for you to win anything.

    This has been happening for years but because its gotten mainstream attention, now its getting investigated. What a joke

  • castrma1

    These two always have the same lineup, I am looking at the top players in the John Deere Classic golf tournament, and they both have the exact same lineup with the players placed in the exact same order. Hmmmmmmm I don’t think that is a coincidence.
