    shortsharpshock — what a NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Spent $10 in the swat — Tied himself for 2nd, but lost out on 1st..oh well..that sucks —- only cashed $8,650

    Spent $12 in the SHOT — Had the perfect LU and Tied himself for 1st X6 — only cashed $23,500.02

    Now, for people (b/c I’ve seen it mentioned b4) wondering why you run the same LUs multiple times in a GPP this is the reason —
    JUST IN CASE

    In the shot/swat alone he RISKED $22 —ANDBANKED more than a lot of folks make in a year — $32,150.02

    He also won the SLAM —- $30,000 for $25 RISK

    $10 RISK in LAYUP netted $6,000

    $10 NBA Rebound..smacked that $4,000 as well
    =============================
    OVERALL RISK = $67

    CASH OUT = CHA CHING $$$$$$ 72,150.02

    This is one of my goals to achieve in DFS. One lineup to rule them all. In all GPPs I enter. Congrats to shortsharpshock on adding this achievement into his checklist.

  • blazedawicked1

    Let me hold something. …lol

  • Mindofigor

    I mean, he could’ve won more by making more lineups. Total noob lol

    Actually he risked more than $22 in the Swat/Shot …I counted at least 4 sets of lineups before I stopped counting . All 4 were in the money . Each lineup had $67

    1 $25 Entry
    6 $2 Entries
    10 $1 Entries
    2 $5 Entries
    1 $10 Entry

    Per Lineup not sure how many lineups he had ( counted 4 ) .

    I agree though if you have the bankroll to play multiple same lineups then you should do it . I try to play at least 2 of the same lineup hoping for 1st and second . Wish I had the bankroll to play 10 Lineups @ $67 a lineup

  • madmanjayWV

    OK let’s get technical — i wasn’t wasting the time to go through 100,000 different lineups….It was specific to the fact of the LUs he won on (FRONT PAGES)…..OBVIOUSLY…but thanks for the clarification……..

  • Turn2gold

    It looks like he had 11 lineups …Here is his scores from the Super Slam

    1st $30,000
    38 $300
    176 $200
    513 $100
    584 $100
    1576 $50
    1635 $50
    4118 $0
    4214 $0
    5052 $0
    6091 $0

    Pretty impressive Risk $737 and win around $75,000

    What about Aflowwin while looking at the Super slam I run across a 105 lineup train by Aflowwin so $2,625 on just 1 lineup . He did double his money but it seems like it would be wiser to play 10 different lineups 10 times instead of 1 lineup 100 times .

    I sure would be pissed sitting in 1st winning $30,000 then Aflowwin 100 lineup train pass me sending me to 101 winning $200…Maybe even Homicidal :)

    Trains in GPPs seems pretty bad. Lets say I put 2 lineups in a tourney, say lineup A and lineup B. If they are identical then lineup B has no chance for first place.

  • sonicattack

    When trains work it’s a beautiful thing. Therein lies the problem. If/when. I know sometimes with multi-entry players, trains happen because the player runs out of time setting lineups, particularly right before lock. But it all depends what you want to risk.

    Pretty sure this guy is not some noob, though he’s only had an FD account since this past fall. However he’s racked up quite a few wins with said account.

    well you just increase your variance running the same lineup multiple times…..its nice when you hit extreme positive variance like this guy but the other 99.999999% of the time it aint too good :(

  • BigSekC

    madmanjay your posts r like buttah. Reverse AYDS FTW.

  • dtdipasquale

    sick noob

  • bfos

    Each identical lineup brings lower EV than the last. That doesn’t necessarily mean it is a bad play, though.

  • spartans22

    Considering sites don’t have large scale $5-10 entry GPP’s like they do in NFL it’s not that bad of an idea, call him lucky but its damn impressive
