In Topic: How to dodge the pros

Pros?

I assume it's a reference to the guys that play TENS OF THOUSANDS of games.

 

 

That's what I'd figured, too, but wasn't sure.  I used to clean up on the signup bonuses and such, years ago.  Put in $25.  Get $25 bonus.  Withdraw $50.  Now, not so easy.  Stupid Fanduel wants be too actually p[lay to get paid.

 

I play mostly 50/50s, as well, and am doing okay in FBGs contest.  I've gone out and played some of the 100-entry H2H games, presumably against "pros".  Gotten lucky.  They seem like they're 50/50 games, kind of for the main entrant.  That is, if main entrant finishes in top 45 percentile, he breaks even.  Everything above that is gravy.  But winning only 40% of those H2Hs isn't such a loss.  I've actually thought of creating a couple of them myself.  Not more than $10 to start.

 

The moment I lose my $11 investment on the year, I'm out.  If I get really lucky on the season, I hope to break three figures!  Wooo-hoo, a hunert dollars!
