    This weekend, I have one entry into the Fantasy Aces Football Championship (FAFC). You can find details on this tournament at the following link

    For those of you who might be interested in having a piece of the action of a live final, I am selling a limited share of my action in the FAFC. Preference will be given to those individuals who purchase larger shares (thereby decreasing my workload as I prepare rosters).

    For the FAFC, there are 13 total contestants and the prizepool is valued at $100K, which makes each entry valued at ~ $7700 (plus airfare, etc); however, I am only paying out dividends to investors if I finish in one of the top 3 positions. Those positions pay $40K, $20K, and $10K, respectively…adding them up, it is a total prizepool of $70K. $70K divided by 13 entries is $5385…which is the total face-value of what I’m offering to divide into shares.

    1 share (1%) = $53.85
    5 shares (5%) = $269.25
    10 shares (10%) = $538.50
    20 shares (20%) = $1077.00
    25 shares (25%) = $1346.25

    Just to be clear, you will receive a return ONLY if I finish in the top 3 (out of 13); a finish lower than 3rd place and there will be no return to any investors. This reality is built into the cost of the shares (see above). I will issue all shareholders a 1099 next year for tax purposes—no exceptions.

    I am selling NO MORE THAN 25% of my interest in this tournament…and, again, preference will be given to those individuals who buy the most shares to minimize my paperwork. Interested individuals can commit to their shares in this thread; PM me for my PayPal address.

    On Sunday, I will post the link to follow our roster to track the tournament here at 1 PM EST.

    I am also selling some of my action in the DK Thunderdome in a separate thread, if you are interested.

    In for 1% if you need/want a lower percentage guy.

    i think this is awesome!!

    just some math for people that care (and for people to double check :D). given the investment pays out if you hit top 3. If you assuming equal chances for all entries (tho tipandpick prolly gives you above average chance), you have about 7.7% chance of a 86% ROI (3rd), 7.7% chance of a 271% ROI (2nd), 7.7% chance of a 643%ROI, and a 76.9% chance of a (100) ROI. expected ROI of the investment as a whole is essentially 0 (-0071%).

    TL;DR——you can getting a zero juice investment on an excellent player

    dont usually look into stuff (but find it interesting so if i did something wrong in my math please correct me) this much but i was curious so i ran it and figure other people might be interested too…

    Thanks!!

    I was hoping folks would notice that I’m not charging a premium for the action; I maybe could have done so, but it would have been in poor taste, IMO.

    I was taught a lot through this community & I am happy to share some of my good fortune with those willing to take the ride.

    Reserve 1%. If someone books all/large chunk of the action no worries but I’ll gladly sweat you for a 1ball

    Math is right. 0% premium is charged.

    Apologies for neglecting the thread for awhile…lots of things to wrap up before leaving for Cali!

    Anyhow, a single buyer approached me for a 25% cut, which made it easiest on me…only one person to deal with for 1099’s, communication, etc.

    I truly appreciate those of you who reached out and wanted a piece of the action; I’ll be sure to post again at the next opportunity.

    I met T-N-P at the DS Vegas event last year and was very impressed.More so by the fact that he is a super nice guy, let alone a stats monster that is extremely good at fantasy sports. And the way he does it lends credence to the skill nature of the game, while donks like me play Cecil Shorts III.
    Oh by the way, he is on the verge of winning this thing. Well deserved.

    He’s got a pretty mean hook shot too, just sayin’

    Also, congrats man, well deserved!
