This weekend, we have a PPV card in Atlanta. DraftKings has some solid competitions for us to win a great deal of cash from this week and I can not wait to chase these big prizes. The main GPP is a $15 buy and $30k belongs to 1st place with a total of $150k being paid out. They also have a brand new Qualifier for $175,000. There’ll be 100 qualifiers for that competition and they will compete for a $50k first location price and $175k will probably be distributed between all 100 admissions that match. I will try to receive my 2nd and 3rd seats this week if possible. Those Qualifier only competitions can be actual bankroll suckers so be careful chasing those too hard. I will probably stick to the very best GPP this week and then throw 100 or so entries at the $30k decoration, then I will likely have a few shots at the Q. I will also be publishing H2Hs as well as picking up H2Hs throughout the week to receive a fantastic amount of drama into money games.
With that said, let’s get to a few plays I enjoy this week along with my fade of this week:
Cash Game play of this week — STACK — Max Holloway $9,100 and Dustin Poirier $7,100
This was the first thing I did when wages were released. I put these two fighters in my money lineup and I began building out there. I anticipate this to be one of the greatest fights ever and that I believe we get ~200 complete DK points from this struggle, and the guaranteed win. I am ok with taking the reduction when I can guarantee myself over 100 issues with the stack, but I think 150 is a safe projection for this fight and if we can lock up 3 additional wins we should win the majority of our cash games. As I always saywe do not need 6 wins for cash games so there is actually no need to pursue it. Just lock in a safe lineup which you think will score more than 400 total points and you should acquire more H2Hs than you lose.
GPP drama of the week — Nikita Krylov — $8,200
Krylov is my GPP play of the week since he is the definition of boom or bust. He either loses or scores over 100 DK points. That’s what we desire in GPPs. This is not a sure pick in him winning it is only a shot at his ceiling that is what we search for in the huge GPPs where we are trying to win the best $30k prize. Krylov has finished all 24 of his own wins and he’s just seen the 3rd round once in his profession. This is a great struggle to target on either side, but I am taking Krylov to get the win and that I have a good amount of exposure to this weekend.
Underdog play of the week — Dustin Poirier — $7,100
I had to place Poirier here. I love his floor and I believe he’s a live underdog. However, IF he wins, he will 100 percent wind up on the 1st place lineup at his 7.1k price-tag. He is going to score over 100 DK points when he can get a success here and that’s what we’re pursuing in GPPs. Even if you believe Max will dominate Poirier I think you ought to possess 1 hedge lineup utilizing Poirier, which is an all-purpose struggle for me. Every lineup I build will start with Dustin or Max and I will go on out there. Load up on this battle and be sure to find some Poirier exposure.
Fade of this week — Boston Salmon ($8,600)
It was hard to pick a fade of this week this week since I think you can make an argument for rostering everyone. I wanted to choose a popular though and I think that the favorite with one of the lower ceilings is Salmon. I am picking him to win but he will not be heading for any takedowns and when he does not get a finish that he likely does not pay off his $8.6k price tag. I need at least 10x (86-points) when I am rostering someone and I really don’t see him getting that unless he gets a knockout. Taha is tough so that I don’t observe the knockout occurring. I believe Salmon does get a unanimous decision win here but it likely scores in the 70’s and that won’t win us the big $30k. That is why he’s my fade of this week.
