By popular demand, here is one of my many “rants” about bankroll management.
Wanted to publish it here and keep track, so it’s easy for members to see. There is no right or wrong way to go about building a bankroll, this is just a similar model for me. It’s based on a $100 scale, making for easier math to scale to your bankrolls or how you play DFS. This is not the full entirety of the theory or strategy, but please be sure to ask in our slack channel and I can detail whatever you’d like.
Here is the post, summed up.:
- If you play cash, and one lineup, this is how I approach.
- This is for people that play one lineup, like trying to grow bankroll efficiently. Do NOT play multiple lineups in cash, you will only be competing against yourself.
- Personally, I don’t like double ups because 40-44% of the field cashes in double ups. 50/50s have 50% of the field cashing, and you earn 90% of buy-in but to me that’s better than JUST missing on those in between nights and not cashing.
- For example:$50 in double ups -> $100 40-44% cash
- $60 in 50/50s -> $108 50% cash
SUGGESTED CONTEST SELECTION FOR BANKROLL MANAGEMENT:
- $65 in 50/50 or H2H
- $10 in 3 man contests
- $10 in trips (triple ups, single entry if possible)
- $10 in quints (5x buy-ins, single entry if possible)
- $5 in GPP
The above would be an aggressive cash BR management.
- $80 in 50/50 or H2H
- $5 in 3 mans
- $5 in trips
- $5 in quints
- $5 in GPP
The above be conservative cash BR management
REMEMBER: 10 $1 games is > 1 $10 game. Buy-ins below $5 ($3, $2, $1) will keep you away from sharks with rules on most DFS sites.In the long run, 10 $1 games will be less variant than playing 1 $10 game. You could get “unlucky” in one $10 H2H, but in 10 $1 H2H against different players, it’s hard for variance to keep up.
