Passion he’s all about passion with your auction draft

He can get a little long-winded, but that’s because he’s so passionate about teaching you how to do auction drafts.

You just have to go back through these past episodes and you can get a full view of everything that you need to do in auction drafts. everything you need to be a good auctioneer is in these episodes through them and watch all of them and then you will be a pro also.

Cliff notes

Good info, but too much rambling. No one care about the poker or life advice. Voices are dumb. They detract from what is otherwise good information. If it was only the fantasy auction info, I’d give 5 stars.

JOHNJ0HNJOHN ,

Great Info!

The Auction Brief is very insightful and brings up concepts that I’ve never even thought about in my experiences in auction Drafts. Drew clearly knows what he’s talking about.

Please make a video covering Superflex auctions. I have my draft in a couple weeks and am not sure how to approach it.
