    Guess I got lucky…. two straight weeks…..

    I don’t think it’s “luck” lol again…probably “ironical” but had to say it. Anyways, congrats!!

    Little disappointing that my best finish ever netted $50 or so but then I think – could’ve made nothing! Be grateful! So – I am grateful lol. Good night everyone. Hope you had a good night!

    You’ve been on the wrong side of exposure two weeks in a row and still shipped it.

    Deleted.

    Trying not to sound obnoxious, sounded obnoxious….

    Good night everyone.

    Just to clarify a previous comment….

    Yes, I had to be heavy on Ortega at his salary to get the other top fighters in my lineups tonight, so being heavy on Ortega wasn’t mathematically bad, especially since I had enough Holloway shares to cover Ortega….

    Again, this wasn’t me…. So please don’t think I’m being obnoxious here. It was just math based on existing numbers and primarily Vegas odds…..

    So again, without the numbers I would be bankrupt right now (meaning I suck without numbers)….. Just happy my algorithms and simulations seemed to have work this week.

    No hating here, you’re a class act. You kill it in Nascar and MMA. I just wondered about you being slighted by a tie for 1st and $17500.

    We all love you gje, quit worrying. I mean, shit – my family left me and I’m still here saying good things ;) Haha, but seriously – I don’t want to speak for everyone in this forum, so I’ll speak for myself – IMO you are THE BEST poster on Rotogrinders. You freely give out data no one else would – you give compliments that are deserving and funny and articulate. I appreciate you on this forum (and others you have participated in – say NASCAR…) and I think a lot of other people would agree. I am glad you won $$! It doesn’t much matter how – although how seems to be cos you are a math whiz! You seem like a good person IRL and honestly – that seems rare these days. Just wanted to throw that out there, :)

    Actually, just deleted the post you’re replying too…. :).

    Regarding being slighted by a tie, just competitive I guess and I always revisit the past to see what went wrong and why….

    Also, thanks again for your kind comments !!!

    Thanks to guys like you, someclevername, and pretty much everyone else here, this is really a classy forum…. A very nice change of pace from some of the other forum threads here….

    Night of almost was.
    Got Laprise very wrong in prediction (gadelha too hah – so much for sure bets) and tinkered him in over Rakic last moment. No cash.
    NBA – got nervous and tinkered out my feel picks of Theis/Sexton/Collins in last 30 minutes before first game (dk) for the safer picks of TylerJ/Markkanen/JustHoliday for just a little bit of a negative swing that def wouldnt have won to top 5 min in every contest i was in. No cash.

    On to the next…

    Well done and congrats. You are the numbers man so if you analyze the MMA main GPP for 2018 you will see ties are very common. Unique GPP winners in the MMA main GPP are rare, most times we are looking at 1 v 1 or 2 v 2 to be different. Maybe DK will introduce a captain feature to reduce ties in MMA, this will allow for more unique winners. You can do the numbers and send them a suggestion that is if they listen.

    mtdurham, callmetouch, and Trappist1 and everyone else I’ve already acknowledged….

    Thank you all for your nice words !!!

    On a related topic, I love to read and If anyone else here also enjoys reading, I just finished a book entitled Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts.

    I would highly recommend it…..

    A couple of pages in chapter 2 really struck a chord with me…..

    The section is called: “Being Smart Makes it Worse”…. :)

    Told you being stupid works !!!
