When bros think about a dream scenario, I wonder where going from professional poker player to professional daily fantasy sports player would rank on the list, with stories and successes coming from them both? For Cory Albertson, he would know, because that’s exactly how his life has played out.
After realizing that he was pretty damn good at digging into statistical analysis and breaking down daily fantasy sports lineups with his playing partner Ray Coburn, Cory found himself winning millions of dollars while at the University of Notre Dame during his MBA program, even starring in a documentary on daily fantasy sports entitled Living The Fantasy.
I got to chat with Albertson to discuss how he landed himself in such a lucky spot, for tips on how a normal bro like you or I could, possibly, score some serious cash doing what he has done, and why he could totally give better advice than Matthew Berry.
BroBible (BB): I need to ask, how did you even get into playing fantasy sports so competitively?
Cory Albertson (C.A.): “I first started playing fantasy sports when I was in high school, so about 15 years ago, and it really just sort of clicked for me because I really loved stats and sports and competition. So it was really just natural for me to play daily fantasy sports when I first discovered it.”
BB: And from that, it just sort of became a full-time gig?
