    The Well: Kaetorade

    A stranger is being shown around a village that he has just become part of. He is shown a well and his guide says On any day except Monday, you can shout any question down that well and youll be told the answer. The man seems pretty impressed, and so he shouts down, Why not on Monday? A voice from in the well shouts back, Because on Monday, its your day in the well.

    Maybe it’s all the negativity surrounding cash games, but whatever they case, I was asked to do one of these. One of ‘these’ being, ‘THE WELL!’ Finally, I have my chance to show the world how cool i am…either that or the opposite will happen. Eh, life is a gamble so let’s roll!

    JackandSoda did the first RG well back in the day so if youve never heard of or read a well check it out here. Its pretty much you ask a question about anything related to me, fantasy sports, or absolutely anything else and I answer it.

    Some basic 411 on me, but if you want to boost my self esteem, you can ask them again.

    -I’m Alex and Im 35…and feeling it. :(
    -I was born in South East Asia(Cambodia). My family immigrated to America when I was about 3. Spent a few years in Orange county(Long beach, CA), but grew up in central California(Bakersfield area). I’ve been living in Fort Worth, TX since 2005.
    -Sports was my first love in life and I’ve followed basketball longer than any other sport.
    -I play under ‘kaetorade’ at DS, under ‘Nro’ at all other sites. In terms of volume, I play heaviest during NBA season and at DS(RIP). I also spend a lot of time at FF. I’ve played almost exclusively at DS and FF for the past 3 years.
    -Speaking of kaetorade, my wife’s name is Kae. If there’s a word beyond amazing, that would be her. Unbelievably supportive in every way imaginable. I also have two super duper cool kids, ages 9 and 6.
    -I’ve been very fortunate to turn a hobby into a consistent and reliable income; roughly 90% of my profit has come from cash games.
    _I run a family business where I’m my own boss. Couple that with my annoyance with actual work and that’s how I have so much time for DFS.
    -I will answer all questions, but I will spend more time on ones that feed my ego. No such thing as too personal and if it somehow is, I’ll just pretend to be ‘busy.’ Seriously though, people need to know that money can be made through cash games. It’s not nearly the gloom and doom that many make it out to be.

    Thanks to RG and the members for making DFS more than just a business. I’m around much more often than I care to admit, so yeah, just ask away. Please?

    ROI by buyin/game type/sport?

    hehe I’d never ask something like this of anyone, but you kinda gave the go ahead…

    Why not more GPP play? I would think someone capable of winning even $10 50/50’s or h2h’s would be highly +EV in GPP’s

    Cool! thanks for doing this!

    -what’s your typical daily volume like when you’re in full “grind” mode? I assume that is during NBA season

    what’s your daily research routine like. feel free to discuss any sport that you want, but we all know I’m really asking about NBA

    Which NBA team is your favourite, and why is it not your “hometown” kings?

    If you had to choose a champion to prove your innocence on your behalf in a battle to the death, who would you choose, and why would it be Prince Oberyn of Martyl?

    I know you’re a big champion of low rake for the players. Can you explain in more detail how you do your rake analysis to determine if a tournament is worth entering or not?

    Do you play more 3man, 5man, 50/50s, DUs or h2h games?

    feel free to answer any, all or none of these questions, and again, thanks for doing this!

    I have no idea what my ROI is by sport. I’ve never even attempt to figure it out. I’m only concerned with profit. Judging by your question and I’m sure others will be curious, my cash percent for double ups is about 69% for NBA. That’s 3 years of sample size with heavy volume, primarily at DS and FF. NFL is a little lower and MLB is um, almost in the rear view window. Kidding aside, I’m actually rather proud of my MLB. Dating back to last year, July will be my sixth straight month of solid profit. The first year and a half of mlb, I probably lost a total of about $1500, give or take.

    The last year or so, I’ve been putting in an entry in the smaller buy in GPPs. During NBA season, I’d risk anywhere from 3k-5k a night on the busier days(weds/fri), but I’d still cringe at entering gpps that are $100 or more. The way I pick a lineup, I gravitate towards the ‘safer’ plays anyways so cash games are a natural fit. I’ve won some small gpps before, but it’s not my niche. Simply put, I’m just not comfortable with the GPP odds.

    Thanks for doing this Alex!

    -Whats the longest/worst downswing you have had in cash games? Has it ever been bad enough that you felt it was no longer variance and you were losing your edge?

    -Do you see cash games trending towards becoming easier or more difficult with the increased popularity of DFS and the amount of information available?

    -If starting tomorrow you only had $100 to spend on DFS do you think you could grind back up to where you are today? How would you go about doing it?

    I’m in full ‘grind’ mode during nov/dec. The nba is in full swing and all the NFL guys can only stare at their balance for so long w/o entering nba games. I’ve been upping my volume. Last nba season, I did an average of about 3-5k daily, but I took Thurs and Sundays off. This year, I had planned on taking the next leap and upping my volume considerably…then the DS buyout happened. :(

    I actually ‘research’ nba the same way I do the other sports. In fact, it’s funny that you brought it up. When I was struggling with mediocrity in mlb, it was probably because I deviated with what was working. My research consists of tracking every game as it happens. Sometimes, I’ll go over history of certain players(esp for nfl/mlb), but that’s the extent of my research. I know that I could just easily look at the box score, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. I like to know the context in which the stats were accumulated rather than just getting a summary. Plus, it’s super fun to track the games. For what it’s worth, when I was struggling with mlb, I was extremely reliant on other people’s opinions and info.

    I don’t have a favorite team per se. I root for the teams that have my favorite players. I know many people will shake their head, but that’s how I follow sports. Next year, I’ll be rooting for the Cavs and Lakers. :)

    The ‘hometown’ team would’ve been the Lakers. In fact, I used to be a huge Lakers fan until I realized that there was no loyalty in sports. From the owners and the players, it’s almost always about the money. As a kid, I was extremely heart-broken when Montana and the 49ers parted ways. I cheered for Joe so hard and just didn’t understand. When he played for KC, deep down, I still cheered for him…and I didn’t think there was anything wrong with that.

    Here’s where I lose 99% of my cool points. I’ve never seen Game of Thrones. gasp I know, I know. Anyways, a quick google search declared Martyl as ‘hot headed’ and having eight bastard daughters!? I don’t need to hear anymore. Give me Prince Oberyn!

    The first 3 months of last baseball season, the ONLY reason I stayed afloat was because of rake friendly sites(DD and FF). I would’ve been a losing player, but because of their rewards program, I pretty much broke even. I saw first-hand how important rake is. It’s literally extra money. It’s baffling that a majority of players, volume players included, can overlook it.

    As far as tourneys, I wish I had a scientific answer for you, but I don’t. Most tourneys are 10% and you can easily just eyeball the numbers to determine if it’s indeed 10%. If they’re higher, I won’t enter them. I’ve also yet to enter a tourney/Q that valued trips as part of the prize.

    Very rarely, I’ll play 3 man leagues. I don’t think I’ve ever done a 5 man league. The first two years, I did almost dubs and 50/50s exclusively. This past year, I’ve added h2h games to the mix and I regret not doing so sooner.

    1)“Jlin and contrary to what most think, it’s not 100% because he’s asian. I’d say, more like 75%. Seriously though, Linsanity happened when my DFS world took off and I remember waking up and wondering what’s crazier: that i’m making real money on a hobby? Or that there’s an asian dude thats not 7’ ft doing something in the nba.
    Chris Paul is the most skilled and cerebral player I’ve ever seen. I just LOVE the way he plays the game. Blake Griffin game is alright, but wow, those KIA commercials! Absolutely hilarious. Based on what I’ve read and heard from him, he just seems like a real cool dude.

    2)Oh dear god, I’m about to lose more cool points and google can’t save me. here we go. I…haven’t seen either show.

    3)I sort of tinkered with DFS in November of 2010, randomly joining $2 gpps and $5 3 man leagues. I didn’t have much success, but I wasn’t losing money. I didn’t get hooked until I noticed there was a designated ‘D” next to some NBA leagues at DS during the start of the NBA season. That was the first that I had ever heard of double ups.

    4)Huh?

    5)It’s great for cleveland and great for the NBA. And it was GREAT for Lebron. It was literally out with the old and in with the new and Lebron got to come home. The only issue I had was that his letter insinuated that he did NOT leave for greener pastures. He wanted to come home. I believe that, but that wasn’t the only motive. He has a better shot at titles in the immediate future with cleveland than Miami, but the letter suggested otherwise.

  • jimmyrad

    Thanks for the well thought out response. Forget ROI, your 69% win rate tells the story.

    As far as GPP’s my comment was based on having only played baseball. I do make a lot of GPP only lineups, and have hit my biggest scores with them, but I also enter most of my cash lineups into cheap GPP’s and it seems to be working. I could see how this might not apply to other sports, especially hoops.

    Dude, I just read through the questions and at the risk of making some enemies, here we go!

    1)I’ve given this a lot of thought. I had planned on doing heavy action at both DS and FD, along with whatever I can get at FF. If I can get enough action, ideally spread out, at FD, they may very well by my primary spot. I will definitely look into other sites and of course, rake/rewards will be almost as important a factor as traffic.

    2)Hambazza and Seth are absolutely hilarious. I love reading their posts. They’re the type of guys that make the community fun. Least favorite? I don’t have a problem with anyone in particular. I just get annoyed when I see things like Misfit claiming that you need to be 70% to even see a profit. That’s just a flat out lie.

    3)Initially, I was a bit annoyed that RG, other affiliates, and even the dfs site themselves were coddling players with info. However, I was able to see the big picture. The way I see things, affiliates are keeping guys playing longer than they otherwise would. Also, You can only beat guys based on info, or lack thereof, for so long. It’s not sustainable.

    4)Watermelon.

    5)I factor in vegas spreads and I target players on teams that I expect to do well and I always consider the blowout factor.

    6)Linsanity was short lived, but it’ll always be memorable. It happened during the same time I began to think that me and dfs could be for real. Oddly enough, I rarely used Jlin during this incredible run(thx to ds’s pricing). However, one particular Sunday, against the mavs, on national tv, he had a MONSTER of a game and keyed me to victory. That was the height of Linsanity and I’ll never forget it.

    7)This opinion is based on my experience at DS CASH games so guys who don’t play there often or primarily do gpps will not be considered. There are so many good players, but if you put a gun to my head and I had to narrow it down to 3, it would be, in no particular oder, Dinkpiece, Condia, and Notorious. Dink is such a pro. I check out his lineups often and rarely, does a player on his lineup leave you scratching your head. Condia came out like a house of fire last year and really put his mark on the industry. It seemed like, by his standards, Notorious had an off year with nba ds, but I really respect his consistency. It was definitely a pleasure and an honor to compete against those guys on a daily basis.

    8)My mom makes red curry often and if you can handle a little spice, it’s definitely worth trying.

    Np, it’s a pleasure and based on my responses thus far, you can tell that I have nothing but time, lol.

    1)In dec, ’12 I went through a stretch where I didn’t make any money. In fact, I would’ve been in the red, but my NFL seasonals at FF paid out that month so it put me in the black. I wasn’t particularly frustrated, I just brushed it off as variance.

    In March of this past year, I suffered the longest slump of my dfs career. I was playing about 3k a day and I was in the red for about 11-12k after 11 days. I probably made as many deposits the first 10 days of March as I did the previous 2 1/2 years combined. I wasn’t particularly concerned because I was up so much up to that point. From Nov thru Jan, I knew I had an unsustainable number and variance was going to catch up to me…and it did. I will add, however, that I probably got a tad burned out. I got lazy with things. Instead of putting in 2 solid hours tinkering with my lineups, it was now an hour or sometimes, even less.

    How did I get out of my rut? the DS bball championship. Even though I flamed out in the first round, it brought a renewed focus. I had lost my way, so to speak, and because the dsbbc was so important to me, I re-learned old habits. I put in more time. I was back to at least 2 hours of tinkering. What also really helped is that I never panicked. In fact, I started playing less volume in the subsequent days following the slump. I actually went on quite a heater and ended the month in the black. The takeaway? Don’t chase your losses and always evaluate your focus.

    a)FWIW, after my torrid nov-jan, I was listening to Aloe Blacc’s “I’m the man’ way more often that I’d care to admit. Then followed an extremely mediocre Feb, followed by my worst slump to date. Coincidence??? I think not, lol.

    b)my wife has banned me from listening to that song…dfs reasons only, lol.

    2)Cash games are definitely more difficult than in the past. I feel like I know so much more today than 3 years ago, yet, my percentages are very similar. Before, you could get away with mistakes. Obviously, that’s all a direct result of all the information and analyses that’s readily available.

    3)If all I had was $100 to play with and I had no access to more funds, it would take awhile, but I’m confident that I’d be able to build it up over time. I only started my journey with $300, but I always had access to more if need be. So I guess to say I had a $300 BR would very misleading.

    Thanks for doing this. Could you elaborate more on what you would do with $100? This could definitely help out us small timers. How would you break it up and what percentage would you put in play on a night?

    – Do you think mobydickler is any good? Opinions on other HU regs?

    1)The obvious down side to my approach is that it’s very time consuming. As far as upside, it works for me. I’ve been able to apply it to a new sport(mlb) with success.

    2)a)Remember that value is always relative to the salaries of the rest of the player pool. For example, Chris Davis 57k salary might be a great value on Tuesday, but not necessarily on Weds. It’s imperative to remember that values change every day. Don’t ‘upgrade’ simply because you have the salary. I’ve certainly made that mistake in the past. Sometimes, it’s okay to leave salary on the table.

    b)At FF or anywhere else, I never worry about overlap. If I like a guy and I expect him to be heavily used, that makes him more of a must play. On the flip side, if a guy is dirt cheap and I expect him to be heavily used, I will use him even if I don’t ‘love’ him. Why? because I don’t want to lose because of a value play. Seeing a cheap guy go off and being the only one without him? Not a good feeling.

    3)I have a good idea of Moby’s alias at other sites and if I’m correct, he’s a much superior player than me. I’ve held my own thus far, but I attribute that to FF’s salary structure, which creates less of an edge for a guy like Moby. As far as other regs, please, if you want me to throw people under the bus, you gotta be a lil’ more specific. :)

    The reality is, if you only have a $100 bankroll, you’re probably best suited to be a casual player looking for entertainment. With that idea, you’d want to stretch the dollar as far as you can. I would play $10 a day and see where it got me. If I got up to $150, I’d start to up it to $15 a day, win or lose. If I got up to $200, I’d do $20, win or lose. I wouldn’t play less than $10 a day. That’s basically 10%.

    Depending on your results, you’ll have an idea of what type of player you are. Whether you’re a casual player or someone that could potentially make money off dfs, you’ll know. Nothing builds confidence like results.

    I know BR gets all the attention, but your thought process is much more important. If you really want to succeed, you CANNOT follow the herd(taking advice that everyone else takes); That’s a recipe for mediocrity. Do it your way.

    1)It’s very important to have a consistent process you can rely on so that when things inevitably don’t go your way for a prolong period of time, you can revisit that process. This will help you understand if you’re losing because of variance or something more. Also, rake/rewards matter. Overlay matters. They might seem small initially, but they add up fast.

    2)Up until now, I’ve always used one lineup per site. However, as I continue to up my volume, I’m leaning towards running two teams. They will be very similar, 1-2 player different, and they will be divided equally. That’s the plan for now.

    3)I actually approached Mark about doing such a challenge during the NBA season. I was hoping to challenge some of the guys here, but it never went beyond an email. Apparently, there wasn’t enough interest at the time. Lesson learned. I need to piss people off before presenting a challenge, lol. To answer your question, I never considered the challenges here for mlb because I’m still building my confidence in mlb.

    a)I actually did challenge condia to a h2h NFL seasonal at FF, a format he also plays. However, I was told he only wanted to do 4 week increments or something like that. Hopefully, this upcoming nfl season, we can get a high stakes nfl seasonal going at FF. I made a thread last year, but it just didn’t have enough interest.

  • Newgeneration82

    thanks for taking the time to do this man, it’s a great read!

    1. For your mlb cash games, do you run similar lineups out on both sites, or do you mix it up to try and get a leg up on the variance?

    2. Who’s your favorite baseball team?

    3. Are there any NBA players that have a special meaning to you because they won you a big tourney?

    4. Do you feel like mlb is more difficult for someone to grind their way to a better bankroll then basketball or nfl?

    thanks for taking the time to do this man, it’s a great read!

    1. For your mlb cash games, do you run similar lineups out on both sites, or do you mix it up to try and get a leg up on the variance?

    1)I do run similar lineups, but I don’t go out of my way. I do, however, use it as a tie break if I’m stuck between two guys. It’s just more fun to root for one guy.

    2)My favorite team is the Rockies, but only when they’re at home. When they’re on the road, it’s whoever else I use. :)

    3)Blake griffin won me a Q seat to each of the past two DS nba championships. Add in the Kia commericals=WIN!

    4)I’m a bit biased here, but yes, I do think that MLB is more difficult to continually grind. The small sample size(4 at bats) invariably leads to more variance.

    Rank the top 5 (MLB) players on FF(not including yourself). I want to sign up there, I’m curious to know.

    1. I know you loved Draftstreet, can you please offer your perspective on their salary algorithm? In the DS shutdown thread, people were clamoring about how great it was. To me, sharp pricing is the enemy of 95% of DFS players.

    2. If you could fight one NBA player, past or present, who would it be? Mine is Rick Fox.
