The biggest tournament at Moneyball over the last week was the NBA Thursday Monster, worth a whopping $50,000. It attracted 2826 entries and produced one of the more thrilling finishes in a major DFS tourney for some time.
Evan23 was in the lead by a mere two points when the buzzer sounded in the final game of the day, the only problem is, that game between the Lakers and Wizards was destined for overtime and 2nd placed oastrawt had Laker Kentavious Caldwell-Pope up his sleeve. It took KCP until there was just 30 seconds left in the OT period to hit the three that would sink Evan23, providing a good sweat even for those who were just bystanders.
The NFL Sunday Blitz might not have been as thrilling as the the major NBA tournament but it still offered am $8,000 prize pool and attracted 430 contestants. A dominant performance by wheldon saw him take out the top prize of $1,050 by a whopping 19 points over his nearest competitor.
