UPDATE 2: Alright everyone; closed up. Everyone has been given their tickets. The contest is open for live registration so you can enter right now and pick a team.
There will be 78 entries playing for Ryan in this tournament and after speaking with his family I’m pleased to announce that will include some by Ryan himself.
If this is your only entry, we’ll just pull any winnings you get as soon as the contest ends. If you have more entries than your free one, we’ll be removing a proportional fraction of your winnings. So if you play a total of four entries – three you purchased and the free one – and win a total of $3000, we’ll remove $750 when the tournament ends tomorrow night.
Thanks to each of you and to RotoGrinders for helping us do something great and hopefully all have some fun doing it.
UPDATE: The first 1k went so fast, we are increasing it $2000 in tickets. Keep signing up to grind it out for a good cause.
Ryan – better known as RMTHawk64 – is a very well liked member of the DFS community who is currently battling stage IV cancer. We’re going to donate $2000 in entry tickets to this Friday’s 50K contest to Grinders who will then do what they do best to help Ryan out – win some DFS cash! Any and all prizes won with these tickets will be collected and donated to Ryan. One ticket per person maximum, anyone with a Fantasy Feud account is eligible – first come, first served. We’ll reach out to him and his family and determine how they’d best like to receive these funds, via check or paypal or one of the online fundraisers in his name; whatever they need.
If you never played at Fantasy Feud before, that’s fine, just set up an account and we’ll get you a ticket for free entry. If you planned on playing the 50K anyway, feel free and we’ll just give Ryan the appropriate portion of your winnings. So if you play with Ryan’s one ticket and then enter four times on your own, we’ll take one fifth of whatever you win total from the 50K and pass it along to Ryan.
So Grinders, get grinding and make some money for a great cause.
