SFTC Most Wins Strategy – Teamwork
Teamwork can be defined as
cooperative or coordinated effort on the part of a group of persons acting together as a team or in the interests of a common cause. In this case, we’ll assume that the
Common Cause in this definition is to win Streak For The Cash.
You could make a case that any tweet, blog post or message board that shares information is a form of teamwork using the
Cooperative component of the definition. The issue with that most players take advantage of the information, but never provide meaningful information themselves.
This article is going to focus on the
coordinated aspect of the definition, where a group of people proactively work together in an effort to try to get at least one of them to win. Some examples of these are:
- Division of Duties – SFTC can consume a lot of time. There is no reason that this can’t be shared. It can be split by sport, pick window, day of the week or in whatever manner suits the team. This can be for research or for monitoring purposes.
- Information Sharing – Everyone can work independently on their research, but agree to share helpful information with others on the team. This can be when to consider an underdog or when a particular pick is even more solid than it would appear.
- Vacation Coverage – If you’re going to be out of town on vacation, you can have someone else make your picks for you. I couldn’t find anything in the rules prohibiting this, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be against the rules in the future. I’m sure that it’s being done, although I’ve never personally done it. The security aspects of SFTC are not the best, so make sure you really trust the person you give your password to.
Private Groups on SFTC are likely the easiest way to work together and is likely the most common. You simply post helpful information about props and it’s read by all members. You can follow other members and root for them. The only drawback would be the lack of notification you could get on some type of messaging app.
