Wanted to say thanks to Mike Hook for hosting the Live NFL Draft Chat. Heard from various community members that it seemed the chat split into two, so I will pull the logs and see what happened as there is only one chat in the backend that (technically) existed. So not sure how there was an alternate universe, but will look into it.
Thanks again to Hook for taking the time out of his afternoon with the family to talk NFL.

Just an FYI on Hook's plays:
I get a total net units of +13.35 for one night of action. Can't beat that. Here were his plays by my count:
prop/odds/units/Win or Loss
1. Over 1.5 RBs taken in 1st round/+145/3 units/W
2. WR Michael Floyd taken over 13.5 pick/+170/1 unit/L
3. SS Mark Barron will be taken before G David Decastro/-320/2 units/W
*4. T Matt Kalil will not be taken with the 3rd pick/-115/Max units (4)/W
5. WR Justin Blackmon will be drafted with the 4th pick/+300/ 1 unit/L
6. Stephon Gilmore will be drafted with the 10th pick/+300/ 1 unit/W
7. The 12th pick will be a defensive player/-130/2 units/W
+8. Chandler Jones will be taken at 18/-134/1 unit/L
*unit designated as "max" only with no actual value and since his other plays were 1-3 units I just added 1 more unit
+play was actually voided by the sportsbook because it was not even an option on the prop so rather than keep everybody's money it was treated like a push so it doesn't go against the total net units
-One had to have had accounts at 5dimes, sportsbook and Bovada I believe to have had access to all these props
-I included his pre draft picks that he gave out a day or 2 before the draft but this was a complete list of his 1st round plays to the best of my knowledge
-Some props only stayed up for less than a minute so you had to be quick to get them and get them at the posted odds, but it was possible
-Because of my lack of outs, not getting the pre draft props and not being quick enough I was only able to bet on 1 of his props (Blackmon, a loser), but now I know how to handle it in the future.
-Basically the guy went 5-2 for over 13 units in one night. A good investment I would say
A Big Thanks to Mike!! It was fun being a part of that chat, things went really fast and as a long term subscriber I appreciate everything you do!!!
JD, you forgot one Nick Perry drafted first +360* vs Courtney Upshaw drafted first 1U that was +3.6U for me
The backend log only has one chat and one log, so my tech team will need to contact the chat company and ask what could have happened. But, there is ONLY one chat room that was created and I even double checked last night when returning to the room.
As of now it looks like the chat host has two serves to handle over-load. BUT, it should not have created two rooms with the same topic. It looks like it did and our tech team is contacting them to have it fixed in the future as this has never happened in any chat in the past.
