    Sanderson Farms and the WGC HSBC
    October 27-30

    Not sure what DK is doing yet besides putting out way too small GPPs this week. I think we are going to get the Sanderson Farms event as the PGA one and the WGC-HSBC one at the Euro one. At least I hope so…….

    Regardless, I’ve opened this thread for all the golf this week

    EDIT – looks like we are only getting the WGC-HSBC event only….

    LMAO as the small fish says to the sharks. Dont eat me now, cause im gonna get bigger.

    not that forthefans89 is a small fish and BIF/ wander_bread are sharks.

    Just thought it funny

    sure, as long as its about $3 entry lol, not going big for the first few weeks until i understand what im doing

    These guys are sharks.. They pray on fish like you with your Verplank, Els, Todd, Fasth, Hoey, Lehmann lineups !! I’m just kidding but not really they all think your money is easy money. So be wary of these H2H invitations lol. The guy who keeps taken your money at the home poker game will be your friend !!

    Unless your a full time player ( I’m not ) it’s actually intelligent to stick solely to golf for DK purposes as all these sharks can only apply so much data to golf.

    Use your tools ( betting sites, scores from past years of event, current form, world ranking, stats etc ) to help you pick but h2h contests are created by sharks to sucker fish in for the easy kill. If you pick the larger 50/50 contests your bound to play against more fish and therefore increase your odds of cashing. So first couple of weeks play the large 50/50 contests to get a feel of it and maybe a small punt in a GPP but avoid the sharks, they’ll kill you

    On that note I feel like playing some people on this site I never have before

    You could however take the contrarian route that I dismissed and take on the sharks

    I really dismiss the whole shark thing. Some people are maybe a little bit better in making mass teams as that takes a little more expierence. Some players seem to be better because the play mass LU’s, so over time during the contest you will probably see their name at or near the top, but it needs to be there at the end.
    In H2H anyone can win in any given week. It is important to focus just on your process and not try to emulate someone else’s process that is betting much higher amounts of money than you. Also I strongly suggest to not only start out small but to remain more in the smallish wagers. Unless you can easily absorb the loss’s, stay within a common sense range that you can easily handle.
    Their are players on here that play most contests but in a very fiscally responsible manner. Those are the people that you should emulate if they share their process. Tim-usb is one of them and is generous with his time and input.
    I just dont want to see anyone get in over their heads and that can easily happen when thinking this is easier done then said. I am putting a stop to my maxing out on mass line ups. The search for that rare $10K plus payout is simply too hard in my opinion to achieve. I have come very close many times but unless you are in the top 6. You don’t win shit compared to what you have wagered.

    LOL mallotc93, whats the defenition of a shark. someone you dont know who beat you last week?

    having fun but…

    good group of people here, if you look at last weeks thread, I think you will find all the top finishers in the CIMB were touted and explained somewhat why.

    lol of course many others were touted too.

    thanks for the advice :) im aware they see me as easy prey, but ive already written off the first deposit as a learning experience.

  • Pickle29

    I’m always open for $1 H2H every weekend. Feel free to send me any or I’ll send some out.

    well said.
    Im still in learning process. single LU/MassLU different. I make mass LU first then choose single LU from mass. Not anymore. I will make mass LU first then remake my single bullits.

    I want to metric the mass LU thing so the other contests are secondary. Cant afford $450 a week and Unless I hit 2 in a row for a quarter, im wondering when I will jump.

    A quarter max lineup is fun but I had a great week and won a whopping $4 last week. (I lost most of my birdies and $1 contests)

  • Wander_Bread

    I’d much rather put in my research and play just 1 LU each week / day in the given sport than lay out a ton of money on a bunch of different lineups. That’s why I would much rather play H2H/DU/50/50 cash games than these large GPP’s where the large bankroll guys / guys that play for a living are dropping in 150 LU’s. Sure, I still enter the GPP’s here and there cause you never know, but I know that at best I generally min cash or just above it.

    I don’t do this for a living, nor is this even my primary source of gambling (wager much more each week on CFB/CBB/NFL), but I am up long term playing strictly cash. If I can cash out a few hundred every few weeks and have fun playing I am content.

    Just my 2 cents – Now, were I to hit a big GPP, things may change lol.

    Im a whore for odds lol, if im getting 90cents on the dollar, im betting sportsbook instead of an unknown competitor. unfortunately at the sportsbook I find parlays irresistible.

  • Pickle29

    I’ve had my best luck in the 3, 5, 10-person contests. I’m usually a single lineup player, and I play it in everything, H2H, 50/50, DU, 3/5/10’s, and the single-entry and 3-entry max GPP’s. It’s been working for me so far, until this week.

    Firstly, I’m far from a shark and secondly I agree with your advice as most of the well known sharks do not appear to be consistently good at golf like other sports.

    In general, many of the max entry sharks are not great at H2H as their optimal lineups are only one bullet against your optimal lineups. 50/50 shot at winning or better.

    There are a couple of guys that post H2H who are really good and do not max enter GPP’s so I’m assuming they are mostly cash game players.
