The weekend’s action at Draftstars kicked off Friday night with a huge $50k guaranteed tournament for the Adelaide vs Geelong game. The tournament attracted 3790 players and offered a $7,000 top prize which was taken out by Buddylove23 with a bug score of 923. Charlie Cameron proved to be the difference for Buddylove23 after scoring a massive 113 points in only 16% of teams.
Bodycamcrush and corey0400 took out the minor placings. One point separated the two and was the difference between $4,500 for 2nd place and $2,250 for 3rd. DFR member and veteran Draftstars player Tryanhit was massive with 5 teams inside the top 25.
The tournament for the Richmond vs GWS game nearly replicated the Friday night competition. It also offered a massive $50k guaranteed prize pool and attracted 3639 players. Canned_ice took out the top prize of $7,000 with his team that scored a modest 854 points.

Comolian and Scotty_77 tied for 2nd place, splitting the cash and taking home over $3,000 each with scores of 841.
The Sunday NFL tournament at Draftstars smashed the $15k guaranteed mark, working its way up to a prize pool of $23,000 with the 1754 entrants. The QB/WR combination of Tom Brady and Brandin Cooks proved to be a lethal one for the eventual winner, LFC4EVA, who won the day by a whopping 18 points to take home the top prize of $3,450.
Prelim weekend was another big one at Moneyball with the two games both offering tournaments with over $8,000 prize pools. Friday night’s tournament was taken out by tobesman after his team scored 821 points led by Joel Selwood, Patrick Dangerfield and Charlie Cameron. Tobesman collected $1,100 for the win while EFC34 picked up 2nd place. Good day for DFR member peekay89 who won over 500 dollars by coming 3rd and 4th.

Daniel Rioli and Adam Tomlinson were once again the catalysts in the winning team, with Jlenkic8 selecting them on the way to a $1,100 win.
