    Curious as to how people would approach the playboy championship as far as lineup building. Being that there are only 80 entrys, would it be more beneficial to treat it like a cash game lineup? I’m generally a fan of the two team stack.

    probably not the answer you are looking for but it would be 100% slate dependent

    yeah….the field is really sharp too, so I think predicting ownership levels can be tough. I usually build mine closer to Cash than GPP b/c I find a lot of times people get cute “fading” good plays, but to each their own. Should be an awesome tournament next week.

    Predicting ownership in small field Qs can be extremely difficult and I think really comes with experience. I would not worry much about ownership and just try to make the best scoring lineup.

    Like DB said, with so many people getting “cute” sometimes the obv or top plays with be far to low owned. Don’t over think it and just worry about making YOUR lineup the highest scoring it can be for that slate. Don’t worry about what others are doing.

    Good luck!

    My advice – No matter what, play your guys. Build your core for the day, and don’t talk yourself out of a play because of ownership. Outside of that core, whoever that is, expected ownership becomes a thing.

    Just to echo, but to lend my advice from my recent experiences in the football live final. Just do what you do, don’t stress what others are going to play too much, build a strong core as Dave said and don’t let ownership push you off a play. However, with all of this, it is something that will come with time and experience. I learned a great deal from my last final and am hopeful to put that experience and knowledge gained into my next. Don’t let yourself talk yourself (that sounded confusing) out of a play just to be contrarian, this does not work out.

    I understand this means nothing and I actually hate typing this out because I feel as though I am gloating or some stupid $h!t but had I not let myself talk myself out of the plays I wanted and knew were the right plays because I was too worried about ownership, I would be sitting with a much, much nicer bankroll right now.

    Don’t let the mind games get to you, play your game, you got here! That alone is a huge accomplishment!!

    I will chime in on my Playboy Finals experience. For the Starstreet 2014 finals, (around 50 entries I think) I had the chalk pitchers of the day (Salazar vs Astros and Vidal Nuno vs Padres) in my lineup but pivoted at the last minute to Volquez and David Buchanan (both of whom were under 5%). My bats were pretty decent that day and if I left the Salazar and Nuno in, I would have won. My advice would be to not get too cute with your lineup. You can be somewhat chalky. Don’t worry about what you think other players might do. Build what you think is the best lineup.

    Outside of what everyone is saying, you want to enjoy being at a live final. They are very hard to qualify for, and they’re a lot of fun. With that being said, the best advice I can give to you, don’t overdo it the night before the final. The last thing you want is to feel like shit trying to research. GL and have fun!

    Good advice Stevie, but I’d recommend going contrarian here. Try to get as many of your opponents and you can to go to the bar the night before. Maybe even pick up the bar tab which will end up being a small investment to making your competition worse. While your opponents are hammered slip thoughts into their head about some sneaky plays. They’ll wake up rushed the next day but somewhere in the back of their mind they’ll keep thinking about how Stevie said fading Coors is the way to go.
