This weekend, we have an 11-fight card at Greenville, South Carolina. DraftKings has some decent contests for us to win a great deal of money from this week. The main GPP is a $15 buy and $25k goes to 1st place with a total of $120k being paid out. In addition they possess a Qualifier only competition for $175,000. There will be 100 qualifiers for that contest and they’ll compete for a $50k first place cost and that $175k will probably be spread out between all 100 admissions that qualify. I will attempt to get my 3rd seat this week to maximum it if I can. Those Qualifier only competitions can be actual bankroll suckers, so be cautious chasing those too hard. I’ll probably stick to the very best GPP this week and throw a handful of entries at the $30k decoration, and then I will likely take a couple shots in the Q. I will also be publishing H2Hs in addition to picking up H2Hs throughout the week to get a fantastic quantity of play into money games.
With that said, let’s get to a couple plays I enjoy this week Together with my fade of this week:
Cash Game play of the week — Main Event STACK — Renato Moicano and Chan Sung Jung
For me, this is an easy pile in money week. I think we easily have a floor of 100 with Renato Moicano and The Korean Zombie with upside of ~150. Additionally, it guarantees us the winner. As I have mentioned several times previously, we don’t want 6 wins in money games, therefore play with those type of games all you have to do is conquer half the area. Normally 4 wins or 400+ points is great enough to cash in most cash games. Even if you have a solid lean with this fight I still recommend stacking.
GPP drama of this week — Jairzinho Rozenstruik — $9,000
Rozenstruik gets the greatest ITD line on the card at -140 and he could hit 100+ DK points by getting that in round 1. The worry here would be him on his back in around 1 and then scoring zero points during that and then going out and obtaining a KO in round 2. Or no KO at all. Both of those would take him off the optimal lineup so we want this fight to keep standing and ideally an early KO. I believe that’s very possible and he will be a core GPP drama of mine . He isn’t the greatest money game play however because he could be put on his back and be stuck there and possibly even lose the fight like that. I am OK with him in cash, but I will not be making a priority like I’m being obese in GPPs.
Underdog play of this week — Anderson Dos Santos — $7,900
This gambling line is all about pickem’ with a small lean towards Dos Santos. But, Ewell is your favorite on DraftKings and is $400 greater than ADS. Ewell is likewise the striker so that he to score highly he is going to need a finish. His weakness is Anderson Dos Santos’ strength however. Ewell has a hard time staying off his back and if ADS can put him there he could submit him. He could rack up multiple takedowns to get a high decision rating. I like the value we’re getting on him $7.9k and that I like he should be looking to grapple in this particular fight. That’s why I had to pick him as my puppy of this week.
Fade of the week — Syuri Kondo $8,000
There are no real easy fades this week. I really do have a complete fade on Kondo however because she looks to be only a striker and I think Ashely Yoder’s best path to success is by way of grappling. If Kondo isn’t in a striking match for 15-minutes I don’t see the way she scores tremendously unless she gets a finish. I really don’t think she’s KO power, so I think it is purely the substantial strikes and the triumph bonus which we would be relying here. I’d rather take a fighter with a opportunity to complete or who’s more inclined to grapple. That is why Kondo is my fade of this week.
