How long have you been playing fantasy sports/baseball?

I have been playing fantasy football since ‘94 and baseball since 2000. As for daily fantasy, I heard an advertisement on the radio and decided to try it out.

 

In your opinion, how does daily fantasy compare to season-long?

Season-long is easy since you only have to set up your lineup once a week. Daily is fun because it changes day to day and you can decide what days you would like to play.

 

How would you describe your overall approach to drafting?

I usually pick my pitcher first based on matchup and work in the position players based on remaining salary.

 

Describe the night of your DFBC Qualifier win.

I had a business dinner so I missed the first part of all of the games. When I was done with dinner, I listened to the Cardinals game on the way home and Lance Lynn was have a great game. I went to bed after the Cardinals game and I was in 21st place or so. I only had one player in the late game. At the time I went to sleep, the Reds and Cubs were tied at 1, but then the Reds scored 5 runs so that helped my score. I didn’t find out I had won until I checked my score the next morning.

 

What are you looking forward to the most about Vegas?

I am bringing two good friends with me so I am looking forward to hanging out with them and the chance to win the million dollars.

 

What would you do with the $1,000,000 if you did win?

I would pay off my mortgage and put a down payment on a vacation home.
