High Staked: Regrets, We’ve Had a Few

Veteran high stakes fantasy football player Monty Phan chronicles his season. On a Friday three weeks ago my FFPC teammate Matt and I were having lunch in Las Vegas. We had done two high-stakes drafts the day before. Our Main Event draft was the following morning. That left us with nothing to do that day. This was a problem. We’d already lost money at the blackjack tables the night before. We didn’t feel like donating more. “Why didn’t we just sign up for a Friday Main Event draft instead of Saturday?” I asked him. Then Matt pulled out his phone, checked his email and said there was a live Main Event draft that evening we could do. After checking with our other two absent teammates, we signed up for it. “You know, we just spent $1,800 so that we wouldn’t lose a few hundred at the tables,” I told him. I always know just the right thing to say.1
- In case my wife is reading this, the money was already in our account from last year’s winnings, so, really, we were drafting for free. Love you! (back)
