Is it hot in here or is it Sriracha?
With MLB opening day upon us, my twitter feed was blowing up with providers being excited about their lineups, one in particular caught my eye, @SrirachaDFS. Tristan and his brother Bailey gave me a few minutes to sit down and ask the tough questions that everyone wants answers to.
Question 1: Who is SrirachaDFS?
“SrirachaDFS is a company that was brought up by me, Tristan Bui, in collaboration with my brother Bailey. He does a lot for us, and is not nearly known for it. So to my bro, thanks for all you’ve done for this company and let’s keep rolling.”
Question 2: How did you get started with DFS?
“We got started with DFS around two years ago. We were two huge sports fans in general, and once I got on board with FanDuel, my brother did too. From then we ended up playing DFS on DK, FD, and now even Yahoo. We only provide for FD and sometimes DK at the moment, but hope to do the other sites soon. I feel like it made the game more fun to watch.”
Question 3: What makes @SrirachaDFS different from other providers?
“What makes us different from other providers is that when we lose, we’re not afraid to say it. We know we gonna get it back the next day and if not the next… and DFS is skill but a lot of luck too. So if things don’t go one way on a day, we try to look forward to the next. No slouching, just researching. Plus we put a lot of effort into our craft/research a night, don’t think we just make a line within an hour.”
Question 4: How is your overall record either one or multiple sports since the beginning of the year ?
“The record is posted in our twitter bio, we’re 74-50 in NBA right now… and our MLB record is currently 1-1 if you count the Sunday slate. We just had a big win today though, bless.”
Question 5: Do you have any success stories or big wins in DFS?
“There is one success story.. Last year, Lakers partnered up with FanDuel to create contests that had payouts in the form of tickets, memorabilia, and LA practice tours. We actually took down one of those contests, and we won a Lakers 2015-2016 Team signed ball that has Kobe’s signature from his last year. I treasure this thing and it’s probably the biggest win from DFS that we’ve had.”
Question 6: How can people get ahold of you on social media?
“You can get ahold of us on social media through twitter, our handle is @SrirachaDFS and we can handle any of your needs/questions through our direct messages or just @ us! “
“Always trust your gut and don’t change your picks on just what one person says. Oh, also.. Hit us up and you won’t regret it.”
