Wishes for 2017

Peyton Manning winning the Super Bowl, LeBron James bringing a title to Cleveland, Usain Bolt dominating in Rio, and the Cubs ending over a century of disappointment in winning the World Series. Personally, I completed a year of writing over 200 articles for Boneheadpicks.com. I enjoy the daily grind of DFS and giving my opinions on a number of sports. I always hoped one day I would do this for a living, but at 46 that is most likely not possible. Trying to juggle multiple articles a week with a full-time job and playing DFS has been an exhausting grind. I have mixed thoughts on whether to continue.

Unfortunately, while I did very well with DFS at times, I did not get the huge desired hit I was looking for. My biggest successes this year came last summer in Las Vegas at the WSOP and betting on the Breeders Cup in October. Overall, I am up financially, but when you add up the costs of hotels, flights, and the cost of travel in general, I did not make a profit. Not exactly what I hoped for. My personal goal was a $100K profit and I am far from it.

I am very disappointed that I did not go for it more. I have always been willing to take that chance for the big score, but with a child in college and a less than stellar job market and economy, I pulled back and missed many opportunities.   I was on fire all year with poker and should have capitalized. Even this week, I crushed the 7-card stud games at Foxwoods, but instead of playing in the big games I took a modest win at smaller middle stakes. With DFS, I should be playing over $1K a day on NBA, NHL, and NFL using the mega-multi entry philosophy to dominate as many other have done successfully. I could do this in the smaller buy-in games and be quite successful if I just took the chance. I guess a serious illness, college tuition, and a divorce over the last three years have made me gun shy.
