    When I first starting playing DFS, I could never have envisioned the success I’ve had and, consequently, how noteworthy my username would become. As my username has now caused confusion affecting a person named Max Dalury, whom I am associated with. In order to avoid confusion going forward I think its best that I change my username to my own name, Saahil Sud.
     
    I had alerted Draftkings and Fanduel about a month ago and have worked with them to make this happen as transparently and fairly as possible. Starting today, my user name will be saahilsud, and I’ll only be formerly known as maxdalury. 

    During the month of February, Draftkings and Fanduel will be using a combination of my old username (maxdalury) and new username (saahilsud) as my displayed username. In March, it will just become saahilsud.

    Since your name will be used constantly in the industry, it might be helpful to spell it phonetically here, hopefully reducing the amount of mispronunciation that takes place.

    I’m just going to refer to you as “The artist formerly known as MaxDalury”.

  • Myballzachertz

    People confuse me with the Tight End all the time and I just tell them to deal with it.

    sorry Base Balls. I’m not changing my username regardless of how much it’s affected you.

  • prpmgroup

    Very Intelligent of you to provide transparency for everyone.

    Cudos to you for thinking first and acting second. Great Job!

    This is an obvious attempt at getting around the block feature on DK to scoop my heads up games. I’m on to to you, though.

    My goal is to get so good at this that Pitbull will complain about me using his name…… DALE!!!!

    Does he lose all rankings & have to start from scratch?? From the screen name edit page:

    “Remember: If you change your screen name on any site you will lose the results you earned prior to the name change. We recommend sticking with your original screen name on all sites if possible.”

    Does Kobe Bryant deserve to go to the all star game this year? No, but he’s Kobe freaking Bryant so there’s exceptions to the rules. Deal with it!

  • geardaddy

    I thought changing usernames were against policy?

    I’m guessing he’ll score two goals and be named MVP.

    I always found it really weird that you named yourself after someone you know, is there a particular reason why?

    “A former squash player at Amherst College, Sud adopted the online pseudonym “maxdalury” after the real name of another squash player he knew in high school. He also liked the sound of it.”

    It’s not. I was able to get my username changed a few months ago. On DK, the name is supposed to be allowed to be changed 1 time total.

    It’s okay, my name is not Aiden.
