Cash Plays: Week 4




This article's sole purpose is to hand-deliver (almost) the exact lineup I'll be entering every week for "Cash Games" on DK and FD. BTW, our DK Week 1 Cash "Suggestions" ended up being good enough to win several GPPs lol. Solid start, no sweat Week 1.


Before we continue to build off our over 70% cash rate from last season, I wanted to give you a quick review of these contests.


The main cash games on DK are the GIANT Double-Ups, where fields at the lower stake can range anywhere from 5,000 to almost 30,000 entries. We also have to other game types that, while similar, have slightly different altercations to our plan of attack. Head to Heads and 50/50s are technically considered the more efficient style for anybody viewing this as a longterm (build your bankroll) outlook. While "Double Ups" are usually the featured games across sites, they do have a bit of a catch. Their rake is more extensive, and less than 50% of the field ends up winning. 50-50s offer winnings to exactly half the field, just with a couple of dollars less.


EX: $5 Double Up for a ten-person contest = $10 return to only the top 4 players.


EX: $5 50-50 for a ten-person contest = $9 to half the field. 


That brings us to our next point. Playing in large fields helps soothe out a lot of the variance that can take place any given week.
