    Overall, he spent only $116

    When I have less time, this is def the way to go.
    If you have more time/money, the many lineups is def a lot of fun.

    Right now I have so little time that I am hoping I can even do the Happy Meal. I stand a decent chance of entering stuff and then not having time to fill them out, which is the height of The Dumbs.

    Thanks 627.50 he had to have Redman. Is there anyway to see results from contest your not entered in? Thinking about going up to the 44 doing less of the 5 was just wanting to see average points to get a return on your money.

    Click on the ResultsDB tab on the top of the RG home page. If you change the sport to golf and the date to the Thursday that the tournament started you can see all of the main contests. From there it is easy to see winning scores and cash lines.

    Hey Felix, I manage to just to beat you in our weekend single entry GPP =) onto next week. It kinda sucks cause Fowler/Reed (1 more birdie) really cost both of us like big time. We coulda gone 1-2 in it.

    I did so bad I needed 1st in that GPP just to BREAK EVEN for the overall week lol. That’s what I get for having so much DJ and Corey Conners.

    We were so close to take 1-2 but I’ll take it! I finished about +$1K this week!

    Dunzor, congrats! How much was the qualifier and what scores won tickets?

    It was a $260 qualifier with 68 entrants that paid 2 seats. I won the $260 off a $3 satty last week. Winning score was 567, and I claimed the 2nd seat with a score of 527 (3 points ahead of the guy in 3rd who had a few different ways to catch me in the final minutes based on position point changes)

    Solid!

    It means I would have got a ticket. Damn! Still, I can’t complain!

    Thanks! Ya I was shocked that I managed it with a 5/6, but in the whole contests only 1/68 people managed a 6/6 and they finished like 5th I think.

    They’ve been running that qualifier every week and I think it’s one of the better ones to try if you have the bankroll or can win a ticket at one of the smaller price points. I’ll probably go for it again this week as it would be amazing to get more than one spot since a lot of the big names have close to the max 6 seats but that’s cause they’re playing like the $900 qualifiers and taking each others money to win those.

    Yep I normally play that one too (the $260 68 man double qualifier), but I had a rough MLB week so I decided to keep it lighter than usual. I think I would have had a shot last week too, so I’m due for a bad week!

    That said, this week and the past two seem to be pretty similar, being birdie fests where the young guys thrive.

    Good luck for some more tickets! It’s obviously an upgrade to have multiple tickets, but last year’s FHWC (NHL) was won by two guys who both only had one ticket. It’s a small contest so it’s winnable even with a single bullet.

    What I did to prepare for the FHWC was only entering a single bullet in high fees contests for about 7-10 days before the event. It’s hard to do so when you normally enter 20+. I think you normally go with a single bullet so you should be alright!

    Makes me sick after seeing that fuck these mind fields for 5 bucks

    Haha ya, I’ve pretty much been training for it my whole DFS career. Occasionally I play 3-5 lineups or however many Milly tickets I win, but I’d say probably at least 75% of weeks I play a single bullet lineup in Classic DFG

    For the guys that play the $5 entry with multiple lineups but do not play things like the $15 Mayo or the $44 entry, here is something to consider:

    The guy who won the $44 entry Club Twirl won $100K; he entered the same lineup in the $5 Entry and won only $500 with it.

    He got almost 2300x in the Twirl with almost a nut lineup and only 100x in the $5. It’s pretty hard to hit the stone nuts in the $5 to win even 4 figures never mind 5 or 6 figures where you usually don’t need the nuts to win the $44.

    As an aside, He also played the $15 entry Pat Mayo and finished 2nd for $3K or 200x.

    Overall, he spent only $116 and won over $104K and only played $3 lineups in the $5 entry, same 3 LUs in the $15 Mayo and picked the right single bullet in the $44 entry and threw it in a couple podcast listener league GPPs.

    I really need consider this. Had a LU finish with 579.5 pts and finished 446th in the Drive the Green for $30. I suck at picking a single LU though and really prefer to enter 8 to 10.

    Hideki is the best at dropping in the world rankings despite not missing a cut. That’s what happens when you always finish like 10th-30th!

    BIF, good points.

    More to this from my view, if you look at the Twirl payout structure, you have to cash less often than the DTG to cover expenses.
    While you will need to really commit to just a lineup or two, most of the guys here have the talent to cash enough times to actually lower the potential for losses vs lower priced games..

    So you talked me in to it BIF, playing a single bullet in the TWIRL this week.

  • mason3132

    Yeah me also Mr Breeze i will probably be broke in 6 weeks.

    Somebody usually posts a link on the current tourney thread on Monday night – if you watch his Podcast, he gives out the link in there.

  • mason3132

    Ok thanks watched his podcast last week for the first time. I will go back and make sure I right it down this time.
