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
  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)
