    Is that for this year only due to less daylight?

    wouldn’t surprise me

    Been saving up my showdown winnings to enter the big 100 dollar single entry tournament for this week…this is my Super bowl of DFS since the restart!

  • BrianVT

    I’m playing that one as well. Was going to do the $200 SE, but that one only cashes 19.8% vs. 24.5% in the $100 SE. Need any break I can get.

  • cplatt87

    I’m playing the $100 SE this week as well because I liked the pay structure. Not playing the milly maker as a result but I would rather play a SE entry contest with that money instead of 5 lottery tickets in a 150 max tournament.

    Precisely. I’ll wait to see if DK needs to send out incentives to join the Milly. Another alternative would be the 20 x $4 Fore (26% cash).

    They juiced up the prize pool in the $3 20 max Birdie this week, so I put 20 entries in that already too.

    Sergio caught the C-19. W/D

    Still don’t understand how this happens to these guys so easily.

    He played Houston last week too didn’t he? If so that’s scary because there’s a chance anyone in that field may have been exposed.

    Yea, he missed the cut, though, so hard to say when/where he got it.

  • mgravity

    Well it is a steady tropical storm type rain here in central Florida and definitely will be moving into Georgia slow and steady.

  • Jeddy3

    Hope Finau dodges it again since he played with Sergio.

  • Wander_Bread

    Damn, rough for Sergio and Joker….

    I have to say this pricing is TOUGH! Not loving my early builds but plenty of time for research and tweaking.

    Westwood is so tempting at that price. was playing great until Houston

    he’s already had it

    Time to add a new column to the old optimizer

  • karonica

    the 3 dollar also pays a good return starting to look at that now

    The $2 × 20 as well. 27%. We’re going to have them all covered in here before it’s over.

  • JTAx33

    Shockingly enough, MKF did not actually offer larger prize pools for Augusta like they said they were hoping to.

  • Shaver933

    Anyone have thoughts on course difficulty vs history? I have to imagine it’ll be softer than usual, but what effect will November have?

    MKF has first round lines up earlier than usual.

    Maybe it’s mostly just that they get tested 100 times more than the rest of us. A lot of people get COVID and never know it (perhaps ~10 times as many as those who are confirmed).

    I’m not surprised either. They have lost so much money the last 2-3 weeks, even with the massive bailout they got from day 4 in Houston. The issue isn’t mostly the contest format, like they apparently think it is. It’s that they are late and slow and bad at setting competitive lines.

    Top Amateur ?

    Bryson DeChambeau played a recent practice round at Augusta National. According to Joel Beall’s sources,
    Bryson had less than 100 yards into No. 1 and No. 18, he reached No. 3 with a fairway wood, he had a 6-iron into the par-5 8th hole, and he had a 9-iron or wedge into No. 15. Should be an interesting Masters.

    https://www.golfdigest.com/story/bryson-dechambeau-2020-masters-augusta-national

    Did Bryson just get even longer?

    Looking at the hole maps in the article, it seems like this is a great course to bomb it (if you’re still pretty accurate) as the fairway sand traps are positioned for normal humans, not bionic Brysons.

    Yea, that’s a good point. Herd immunity will probably get here before mass vaccines do, especially at the rates we’ve seen the last week or so. Plus, now people celebrating elections, protesting everything, and storming football fields. Anybody see those ND pictures of students rushing the field?

    There is two $200 ones now

    If you play the NFL $15 Showdown 3 times today before 6pm ET, you get a Free Masters Milly ticket (check Promotions)
