To get a feel for just how exciting daily fantasy sports can be, check out this post by Andrew Wiggins, co-founder of the poker training site CardRunners and the daily fantasy sports site DraftDay. Andrew has since moved on from DraftDay, but he still keeps tabs on the industry and blogs about it for all to see.
The post documents the DraftKings Millionaire Maker the week before last in which online poker studs SameENole and Brian “Stinger88” Hastings went into Monday night with a $1 million first place prize on the line.
