Mark | Sports and Fantasy betting

Wednesday this week I was invited to participate in the Draftbug blogger MLB fantasy betting freeroll. Since I have no clue what so ever about baseball and fantasy betting I thought it would be a great way to learn how these kind of events take place.

It was actually easier than I thought. I simply signed up for an account and then registered for the freeroll through the main lobby. This very much resembles the sign-up procedure for restricted poker freerolls. Once registered, I could enter the clubhouse for the event where I was to chose my team by the points cap method. Basically you have 1400 points available to set your team of 10 players. When you click on each of the positions to fill, you are presented with a list of players to chose from with each player costing a certain amount of points.

Having no idea what the OF, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, C, SP and RP positions mean I just picked some random players so the total points added up to 1400. Needless to say this is probably not the optimal approach and sure enough I finished in last place out of the 13 participants. My team scored 9 points in total compared to 61 points for TheInsidePitch’s winning team :-(

I quickly want to mention that a really cool feature of the Drafbug site is that once the MLB games start you can follow your team’s performance live in the clubhouse.

I talked to the guy who runs the Drafbug site while I was setting my team and he told me that he usually gets his player information from either Yahoo (Yahoo|Sports|MLB|Players) or Hardball Times. I will definitely try to understand player positions and get some more detailed information on their current form when I play my next event.

Here’s the list of the other bloggers who participated in the Draftbug Blogger freeroll. Most of the blogs are about sportsbetting so check them out if you want to learn more. I will see if I can arrange a poker freeroll one of these days so I can beat the guys on my homeground. How hard could it be to beat a bunch of sportsbetting poker noobs…lol :-) ?

I am a subscriber to this poker feed. It is my belief that if you are playing Poker properly it is not gambling. There is not skill in gambling.
So any more posts like this that have nothing to do with Poker I am unsubscribing.
