    the link speaks for itself…he didn’t take it down, but he was on the correct core and that was huge for him. i don’t play much baseball so i’m not that angry about it. a pretty good night if i say so.

    He plays in every posted contest. He has no entry limits.

    Never mind.

    If you think that is impressive, How about if i told you this SAME night, ** the last day of NBA ** he scored 430 in the $3 league I was in, and took down 1st place. I have no doubt that his lineups were inthe $27 league also and probably more.

    Probably a ridiculous night for him… 1st place in NBA and 2nd in MLB… just crazy!

    He may not have taken down the Sweet Spot Encore, but he took down the Big Gold Glove, which also had a $100,000 first prize (and he also had four spots in the top ten).

    So the question is…. Does he 100% use his system that he sells to the public or does he have his own stuff that he keeps for himself? How and or why are his projections better than THE BAT? Or are they?

    Funny how these threads only pop up when he has a big night.

    Nobody says anything when all of those lineups aren’t at the top of the leaderboard. (which obviously is way more often)

    Exactly. It’s jealousy more than anything. With Saahil, he likes to keep a tight core so when the core goes off, he’s all over the top 5/10/25/50 in a tournament. Other people that max enter may spread it out more often, so while they may win, they could have just a few other entries in the top 500 so people don’t realize they max-entered the contest.

    He’s a beast.

    Bankroll obviously helps, but anybody can try his strategy in the Quarter Arcade, win some money go up to the $1/$3 and work your way up from micro stakes if all you need is a bankroll.

    There are plenty of sites out there now that allow you to customize your projections for every player and spit out hundreds of lineups making max-entering contests that much easier.

  • feekdogg

    I just don’t see how that’s any fun being in hundreds of contests with who knows how many lineups, but I’d guess it’s just business for him.

  • tvsfrink

    Making lots of money sounds pretty fun.

    If I were in his position, I’d probably make one lineup that I’d consider my “rooting lineup” so I could have a little of that follow-my-guys fun, and the rest would be business.

    I have been doing the quarter arcade challenge here for the past month of so in NBA and in MLB… Prior to that I was playing 3-5 lineups on most sites in smaller tournaments only. I am actually loving the quarter arcade and loving creating multiple entries without having a huge bankroll. I also took down the quarter arcade in NBA a few weeks ago for $1000 and won the early slate yesterday on DK with a 230 point performance.

    Not trying to brag about big wins, but I have found that using that same basic strategy really works for me… I pick a core of pitchers that I really like and just eliminate the ones I don’t like at all. For hitters, I play a little bit of just about everyone because we know how hitters in great matchups can easily give you a Golden Sombrero… Its not a perfect science, but for the days that you hit on that core, its profitable and can be really profitable if you win a few of them. Yesterday I loved Garcia and Velasquez and played that combo in 75% of the 50 entries I had and it obviously worked. There will other days that I run out a 2 pitcher combo on 75% and just miss, but worst case scenario I am out $12.50.

    I know this debate has been in the threads off and on for over a year or so now… So instead of posting and telling us its easy to do, give it a try why not? You don’t need a huge bankroll and you can learn a few things… #1 – Its hard to manage 50 or more lineups #2 – It allows you to try a number of different ways to win. For me, smaller stacks from 2 teams I like have been successful so far… So yesterday I played 3 Rockies (Wolters, Arenado, Story) with three Cardinals (Carpenter, Diaz, Hazelbacker) and then took Harper and there you go. #3 – If you are good at creating mutiple lineups and have success at the lowest level, it allows you to build a bankroll to try the higher stakes.

    The dude has huge balls. I don’t care how big his bankroll is, especially since he plays NBA on FD every night without a late swap feature. He had 100 percent exposure one night this year to Derek Rose, who got scratched 2 seconds after the lock. He probably lost 50k because of that 2 second window that he missed. Most of us, even if we had a 7 figure bankroll, wouldn’t go all in like that. I respect the hell out of him for it. Massive onions.

  • glennantz

    I would like to know what his over all profit is for last year.

  • bzsports4

    Its hilarious that people think this is easy. If it was so easy EVERYONE would do it. Also MME is the only reason why DK/FD can have huge tournaments like this, so if you hate it that much play the smaller single/limited entries, but you can’t have it both ways.

    RotoQL along with FantasyLabs and The Bat help give US an idea of favorable positions. That said, I used RotoQL a bit for NBA. Like FantasyLabs MUCH more. I agree with most people here, he has a process and he sticks to it. When it hits, it hits BIG. The art of selecting that core is what makes him and other elite players good. It’s that random one-off punt play or sleeper pick that has no correlation to a statistic in RotoQL, FantasyLabs, or The Bat which makes it purely luck, or a gut pick.

    I dont know if yall missed my post earlier but he took down MLB on 4/14, but he also score 430 in NBA on 4/14 (and was 1st in the $3 GPP i played) which means he probably took down 1st place in MLB and NBA on the same night. Just ridiculous!!!!

    Exactly. Most people don’t have algos and stuff like that but put $20 into the quarter arcade and let me know how easy it is to win. It is not.

    Tonight he has the max 60 entries in the $400k Curve and max 400 entries in the $400k Fastball. Over $33k in entry fees between the two. Crazy stuff.

    In my opinion this is where the AG’s and politicians see this as gambling . Not the guy who puts in 4 $3 GPP rosters but the guys that are spending 10- 30k a night , Now that’s gambling . Don’t get me wrong ,I applaude those guys and If i could do it I would.However my nads are no were to even close to being as big as their’s.

    My hat’s off to them !

    LOL, your kidding yourself if you think the AG knows anything about dfs. The whole thing started as a political move to gain followers taking down the bad guys(bullshit). It has nothing to do with MaxD putting in multi entries. If they were worried about entries lotto tickets would be capped which is even more -ev then the rake dfs sites take by about 6 times.

  • feekdogg

    Right now he has 4 of the top 10 in FD Super Grand Slam for $58,000.

    It’s not that hard to figure out…get lucky like he did early on and win that big GPP cash and then use that to enter the $1060 contest and hit that a few times (which is easy because it’s a lower cash line) and wahlah you have a fat bankroll and you can play $100,000 per night. Get off his D you goons.

    and who are you?
