Our Discussion Boards Will Return Shortly

Effective Tuesday night, April 14th all of the Streak for the Cash discussion boards will become unavailable for an unknown amount of time while they undergo an upgrade. We know how important these chat boards are to many of our loyal fans and that's why they're being revamped - to give you a better experience while playing Streak.

We'll do everything in our power to make the transition as fast as possible but as of now we cannot give an estimated amount of time before they will be up and running again. Please direct all of your questions to @ESPNStreak; we'll be happy give you status updates and of course any announcements regarding the status of the boards will be made via that account.

W27 takes $30,000 in March; $1 Million Prize in April

One of the best parts of being the StreakMaster is getting a chance each and every month to notify the winner that they've earned a huge cash prize. Today was one of those great days as I had the pleasure of letting Robert M. know that he had locked up $30,000 for amassing a remarkable W27 in March. Robert had the patience to build those 27 straight wins from March 2nd all the way until this morning, March 31st, when an international soccer friendly finally bested him. Yes you read that correctly, his streak lasted almost the entire month! That is the definition of the so-called long haul, going about it with the utmost planning, patience and perhaps even drawing on a bit of luck along the way. After hitting his W27 a few challengers came into contention and were nipping at his heels only to fall victim to the classic strategy of being pushed to action by the leader's phantom pick. We've seen this strategy employed before, and with great success.

If you're unfamiliar here's how it works: the leader makes a pick so that it registers "pick selected" next to their name on the leaderboard, only to then switch that pick when it is about to lock to something on tomorrow's board in a continuous cycle as the days pass. Because the leaderboard only displays it as "pick selected" no one knows what their pick actually is, therein forcing the challengers to select props more quickly than otherwise desired in fear of falling too far behind the leader. Robert employed this strategy like a true pro, and when everyone else had fallen only he was left standing with his W27. If you ever find yourself in such fortuitous circumstances on Streak, perhaps consider employing a similar strategy. Congratulations to Robert on taking home a huge payday!

Another congratulations goes out to Jason B. of Creston, IA for coming up one win shy of tying the all-time record for "Most Wins" in a month with 153! This was a difficult month in terms of our prop selection, so to accomplish a feat such as this one a midst the challenges of March was pretty incredible (in our humble opinion).

Now, let's turn our sights towards April! As many of you may have noticed the props were slightly more difficult in March then they had been in previous months. In the hopes of transparency that's because we're offering a $1 Million prize for the longest streak of W40 or above for the second month in a row, and to offer such a prize we need to keep the props consistent and fair from day one until the end. That way if someone discovers Streak in the middle of the month they can play with the same relative difficulty level as someone who started from the beginning, therein keeping the playing field fair and level. So as much as we'd love to put one on the board, unfortunately there won't be any "free greens" this month - we're simply not allowed. And despite that slight bit of bad news, we're hoping the $1 Million offering should keep everyone sufficiently challenged and satisfied in April. Good luck!

Mad Dash Wins $30,000; March Offers $1 million Prize

The cold winter months always need something to make time pass. Streak provided a great race to follow in January and the last few days of February didn't disappoint either.

The month was casual and just rolling along with a few W20's here and there. Then along came Jordan E. with a streak that just kept growing in size. It started on February 3, but by February 20, he had hit a W25. Things didn't stop there, and he just kept winning. Things reached levels only few have seen on Streak when he reached W30. It came to an end on the 22nd when Northwestern defeated Indiana at home. But with a W30 and nobody in sight, the $30,000 looked like a sure thing.

Joe P. won a soccer game on February 10. It was just a typical Tuesday on Streak, but little did any of us (and probably Joe as well) know, but that win would be the seed planted in the ground, due to become a towering giant. He quickly put together a W10 in two days, and when the W30 fell, Joe had a nice W19 staring him in the face. Could he really get 11 more in a row though? One step at a time, he built the streak. A W25 on February 26 and a W28 at the end of the 27th.

February 28. The final day of the month. Joe began the day taking Roger Federer to win at least 1 set against world #1 Novak Djokovic at the Dubai Duty Free Championship Finals. Federer took the 1st Set (he eventually won the match too) and moved our challenger to within 1 of the leader. However, he did not own the tiebreaker for better win %, so winning two more matchups in a row was needed to complete the amazing comeback. His next game was the #11 Wichita State Shockers playing at home against the #10 Northern Iowa Panthers. UNI had beaten WSU by 16 a few weeks earlier, but the Shockers won the MVC crown in dominating fashion by 14 points. W30. It all came down to one more pick, and low and behold, he chose the Vanderbilt Commodores to win at home against Alabama. Things didn't look so good at halftime with Bama leading by 11. The start of the 2nd Half though was a sight to behold for Joe, as Vandy poured it on in bunches. They would gut out the win and hand $30,000 to the man from Batavia, OH.

Congratulations Jamison S. of Fort Myers, FL for joining an elite club of winning the "Most Wins" contest twice! He won back in October '12, but that was only for $2,500. His 126 wins this time garnered him a cool $10,000!

The big news we kept promising was BIG indeed. The challenge is on and for those who want to accept it, a W40 will win you $1,000,000 in March (April will be the same)! Same rules apply. You must reach W40 and win the month (tiebreakers, etc.) to claim the prize. The longest streak still wins $30,000 regardless. There's also a Stunt Day for the first Thursday of the NCAA Tournament. Good luck to all!

Wild Month Ends in Dramatic Fashion for $30,000

Pause. Take a deep breath. Collect your thoughts. And regroup for February. It's definitely needed after the most insane month we've ever had on Streak. January 2015 will go down as the most successful month for Streakers to date after 10 streaks of at least W30 and over 100 streaks of W22 or more! Top that off with the "Most Wins" contest record being absolutely obliterated (previous record was 143, and we had 2 entries beat that and 1 tie it.

Let's start with the $30,000 "Longest Streak" contest though, because it will not be forgotten. The month started out with a New Year's Day stunt, so naturally we already had plenty of good-looking streaks right out of the gates. Little did we know what kind of Pandora's Streak Box had been opened... By mid-month, we already had 50+ streaks of W20 or greater, and the avalanche kept coming. Greens aplenty were flying around, and at one point a pair of W29's sat atop the leader board. We thought here at Streak HQ that one of those two would probably win. Yeah... let's just say we missed a bit on that prediction. W28's and W27's came out of nowhere, and shortly after that, some ballooned to W30. Over the last week of January, we glanced at the leader board and we had 5 at W30 or above (with 5 more to come).

As usual though, the contest came down to the final 24 hours, where several players stood a chance to take home the big prize. A few were trimmed after suffering defeats, but at 8 pm ET on January 31st, we had a W33 and 3 W32's with one final pick by each. To get things started Joe M. (W32) took Duke, who was a 5.5 point underdog, to win at undefeated Virginia. Gutsy. Meanwhile our W33, Tony C., took a solid home favorite in the Washington Wizards, who were 5-point favorites.

Virginia stormed out in the 2nd Half and controlled the game against Duke, frustrating the Blue Devils with their tenacious defense. The Cavaliers led by 11 with just under 10 minutes to play. Duke, trailing by 8 with under 5 (and yet to hit a 3), began lighting up the scoreboard. Making 4 3-pointers in the final 3:22, Duke stunned Virginia and gave Joe an improbable win.

As that game ended, the Wizards were staring at a 15-point halftime deficit. Things looked even more grim for Tony as Toronto held a 16-point lead (stretched to 18) to start the 4th Quarter. But in true Streak style, Washington caught fire in a way that would make the Sega NBA Jam announcer lose his voice. Suddenly a 3-point game with under 30 seconds left and the Wizards with the ball brought the tension to its highest peak. The savior for Tony showed up in the form of Paul Pierce, who nailed a 3-pointer with 25 seconds left to force OT. It would be short-lived though after the Raptors were too much in the extra period, winning, 120-116.

The other two W32's had picks, but it wouldn't matter because Joe's winning percentage was better than Tony's, as well as the other two (one won to reach W33, while the other lost). So $30,000 was won on Tiebreaker #1 (higher win %) by Joe over two others. Just amazing!

Congratulations Ian D. of Deerfield, IL, who smashed the previous record for most wins in a month (143) by racking up an unreal 154 victories to win the $10,000 prize. Congrats on the huge accomplishment!

February will be played just like January was. $30,000 to the longest streak and $10,000 for the most wins. We are preparing something big for March that you all might really be interested in. But you will just have to wait and see...

Perfect 27-0 Mark Takes Home $40,000

November seems to be the month of big streaks. 2013 saw over 100 W20+ streaks, including five of at least W30 and a record W34. 2014 wasn't that crazy, but we still saw over 100 W20+ streaks. The race was intense, and the stash was obviously going to fall judging by how the month was playing out. The final day saw some serious drama after a W22 ( John V. ) reeled off 4 straight wins, including a miracle TD catch by Jordy Nelson with seconds to go before halftime to keep his W24 alive (turned into a W25). After winning the next prop, (no points scored in the 3rd Quarter between the Patriots and Packers), it all came down to one last pick. Our perfect 26-0 entry was forced to pick with John needing one pick right to pass them. They both split their picks on the Heat/Knicks game. A late Bosh 3-pointer locked down the victory for Miami and gave Chris K. of Cleveland Heights, Ohio the $40,000 grand prize. By finishing a perfect 27-0, he finished ahead of four W26s. What a wild finish to what looked like an easy final day for Chris. Congrats to John as well for making one of the greatest runs we've ever seen on the final day of the month.

Congratulations Nels N. of San Carlos, Ca who held on to win the $10,000 "Most Wins" contest after collecting 134 victories. Things didn't look good after he had lost 10 of 12 with only a few to play. Leading by 1 game (after having let a large lead slip), he got a miracle TD from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson with seconds remaining in the 1st Half against New England to give him a 2-game lead. Had that catch not occurred, there would have been a tie for the most wins.

Since the Stash was reached it will reset in December and be worth $20,000, meaning if you play Streak this month you can win up to $40,000 (stash+monthly)! However, with it being the season of giving, Streak is getting rid of the W25 threshold to win the stash. You got it, longest streak wins $40,000 no matter what. So technically, if you win even one matchup in December, you qualify for the $40,000! Finally, it's almost time for our annual Christmas Day NBA Stunt. December 25 will give you a chance to win $10,000 for the longest streak that day! Thanks for playing and best of luck to all.

Nation's Capital Brings Home the Stash

Whew! What a month we had on Streak. Just crazy it always comes down to the last few props to decide whether somebody walks away with the Stash or not. October 2104 was no exception to the norm either after 35 different entries managed a W20 or better. In the final 24 hours, we still had several entries clawing toward the top of the leaderboard. The final prop of the 30th saw a W24, W23 and a W22 fall when the Clippers couldn't defeat the injury-plagued Thunder by 10+ points. That left a lone W24 to try and tackle the Stash. Twice our W24 had a prop selected, and twice they backed off the prop. Great choice, as both of their selections would've lost. The time to pick came when the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf showed up. Rebecca R. of Washington, D.C. took the winner of the race to come from Post Position 1-5. It was a stress-free race as the 1-5 horses controlled the race the whole way with No. 4 Lady Eli taking the win and handing Rebecca a W25 and $40,000. Should be noted 13 of her 25 wins were soccer picks (typically the hardest to win).

Also, congratulations Rob S. of Syracuse, NY whose 130 wins earned him $10,000 via the first tiebreaker (highest win %) over one other entry. Since the Stash was reached it will reset in November and be worth $20,000, meaning if you play Streak this month you can win up to $40,000 (stash+monthly)! And be sure to mark your calendar for the NCAA basketball "Tip-Off Marathon" Stunt for $10,000 on Nov. 18. Good luck and thanks for playing!

Nebraska Resident Takes Down Stash in Epic Fashion

Here at Streak HQ we like to think of September as the month that brings stability to our beloved game: football returns, and with it comes all the NFL and NCAA action you can handle. In 2014 this was especially true as we were able to bring back a classic from the past and run our first Stunts of the year back-to-back on September 6th and 7th. Big cash ($10,000 for the longest Streak on EACH day) and a whole lot of wins set the tone for the month that weekend and no one channeled the positive energy better than Josh K. of Norfolk, NE who used the Stunt days to get himself to a quick W11 and never looked back. It took him the rest of the month to turn his early efforts into a W25, sometimes waiting for days at a time to make his next pick. And in what must have been excruciating to sit through Josh endured and came out victorious in an all-time Streak classic as the Royals, once down 7-3 late in the game, came from behind and beat the Athletics 9-8 in 12 innings of postseason baseball. Josh risked it all on the slight underdog Royals (+100) and took home an extra $20,000 for clearing the W25 hurdle, earning every dollar of his total $40,000 winnings for sitting through a prop that was as intense as any we can remember. Congrats to him on a huge victory!

Also, congratulations Daren V. of Lakewood, CO whose 131 wins earned him $10,000 via the first tiebreaker (highest win %) over two other worthy competitors. Since the Stash was reached it will reset in October and be worth $20,000, meaning if you play Streak this month you can win up to $40,000 (stash+monthly)! Best of luck and remember: nothing is stopping you from winning big cash on Streak, so go get it!

W28 Crushes all Competition and Takes Down $120,000

August was relatively smooth sailing for Streak nation; favorites covered, underdogs wilted, and monthly pickers enjoyed one of the better months of 2014 (even my brother got 100 wins for the first time!). And yet, the success came with a price. To the chagrin of all but one, the Stash fell for the first time in five months. The lone person that rejoiced? That would be Fernando A. of Fair Lawn, NJ who finally vaulted over the W24 hurdle that had ended three of the last four monthly winner's attempts at clearing the Stash. Vaulted is the key word - Fernando cleared the bar by a substantial margin and ended the month with a W28 after building his impressive streak in a methodical, detailed and deliberate manner, sometimes waiting for days at a time to make his next pick. To give everyone an idea of just how surgical he was with his picks, the Streak lasted from August 12th to August 30th and on only one of those days were more than two picks made...pretty impressive display of patience. Congrats to Fernando and to everyone who made a run at the Stash in August!

The "Most Wins" competition once again came down to the final prop, and when $10,000 is on the line there's never a shortage of gamesmanship or drama. The eventual winner, Thomas Y. of Chino Hills, CA, was a single win ahead of the second placed entry with only one prop to go. A great spot to be in, right? Well, the only problem was his challenger had the better win percentage, so if they picked different sides of the final prop and Thomas lost he would lose the $10,000 via a tiebreak! In a less than subtle attempt at reverse psychology Thomas changed his entry name to "Come on SMU! 1 more win!!!" hoping to convince the field that he was taking the Baylor under. His challenger didn't fall for it, and when the prop locked it was revealed that they had chosen different sides after all. Thomas was now at the mercy of the Streak gods. Nonetheless, whatever fears he had quickly melted away as Baylor decimated SMU right out of the gate, covering the over mid-way through the 2nd Quarter and leaving Thomas alone atop the mountain with a cool $10,000.

13-Inning Drama Sees Stash Roll to $120k in August

What a great month we saw with July. Typically, July is the slowest month on Streak for the Cash, but with the World Cup final and plenty of great streaks, we were treated to a nice remedy to the "Dog Days" of Summer. We may have had 17 streaks of W20 or greater, but all eyes were fixed on a lone W24 on the final night of July. Jonathan H. of Fitzgerald, GA was a single win from taking home $100,000 (he had already locked up the $20,000 Longest Streak). Many waited throughout the final day to see what Jonathan would pick, and when 7 pm ET rolled around, we all knew. He had selected the Orioles to defeat the Angels for all the marbles. It was a pick that made sense for him, seeing as he was 17-3 in MLB picks for July heading into it. The game was scoreless for the regular 9 Innings or play, so extra innings would decide whether or not the big bucks would be handed out in July. Baltimore threatened a couple of times, but in the Top of the 13th Inning, Albert Pujols singled in the only run of the game, and thus, ended the great streak of W24. It was an exciting finish to the month, and now, all of you have a chance to play for $120,000 in August! Congrats to Jonathan and everyone who put together great streaks in July.

The "Most Wins" competition came down to the final day as usual, but this time, each prop on the final day eliminated at least one entry with its result. Our eventual winner was Peter S. of Brookfield, WI, who reeled off 130 wins. The next closest entry finished with 128 wins, so the $10,000 was wrapped up with a couple of picks to go. Congrats to Peter a well-played month.

Best of luck in August to everyone and remember, a year-high $120,000 is up for grabs this month! Each of our winner's got on a hot streak to win their large prize, so why not you? Just remember...it only takes one time to get lucky! Good luck!

Original $20,000 June winner ineligible; Washington resident vaults into 1st Place

The original June winner has been declared ineligible thus making Jimmy S. of Bellevue, WA the champion by default after his A Kid Named BIlly entry finished the month in second place with a W23. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Jimmy's incredible run was that his Streak was already in the rebuilding process by June 14th following England's failure to at minimum draw Italy in the group stage of the FIFA World Cup, forcing him to sweat more than half the month in constant fear of another eclipsing his fantastic achievement. As it turns out someone did exactly that in the 11th hour in the final day of June, and as difficult as that must have been for him to swallow he was once again restored to the champions podium after the disqualification occurred. Jimmy takes home $20,000 for his efforts so congratulations to him!

The "Most Wins" competition was a battle all month long, so much so that when the chips were down and there were no props left to pick the top two entries both changed their Streak entry names to congratulate one another on putting forth such a great effort. Now that's sportsmanship! Of course there can only be one winner, and because Josh V. of Ewa Beach, HI came out on top he goes down in the history books as a two-time winner of the event, having accomplished the same feat back in July of 2012. In that month he took home $2,500; this time around he quadruples his take and nets a cool $10,000 for grinding it out and edging his competition after the top two entries tied at 127 wins apiece, needing the win % tiebreaker to crown him champion.

Best of luck in July to everyone and remember, a year-high $100,000 is up for grabs this month! If you want the cash, what's stopping you? Plan your strategy, make your picks and pray to the Streak gods for good fortune!

Arizona resident wins in May; Stash worth $80,000 in June 

A W24 taking home the $20,000 is quickly becoming a trend on Streak. For the second straight month the winner came up one shy of qualifying for the Stash, which is great news for everyone except Tim B. of Tempe, AZ. He continued the trend of coming up just short of the big money as his Tbataska entry's W24 fell when the Blue Jays (a -127 favorite) lost to the Royals last night. What's most remarkable about his run is that Tim chose a staggering 14 straight MLB matchups correctly, something that any veteran streaker will tell you is nearly impossible to do. Taking these matchups almost exclusively for the majority of his run it's no surprise that he fell on an MLB game, but at least his Streak lived and died on a sport he clearly felt comfortable picking.

Now holding the top spot with his inactive W24, Tim looked on as the closest competitor Tomaguchi10 put his W23 on line with the LA Kings (-155) in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals. In what must have been a wild up and down night for Tim, the LA Kings lost a 4-3 thriller to all but cement him into winning the $20,000 May prize. This afternoon it became official as the only challenger left saw their W20 go down, so despite losing his chance at the Stash Tim still goes home a huge winner. Congratulations!

The "Most Wins" competition was interesting for a few reasons, none of which included the race being even mildly competitive during the final week. Alex C. of Los Angeles, CA dominated May for most of the month with his linemover80 entry, pulling away from the competition with a week or so to go and never looking back. If that name sounds familiar it's for a good reason - Alex was our April 2013 "Play Against Flo" winner! Even more impressive are his all-time Streak statistics; as of now he is in the top 100 all-time for total wins with 5,084. Alex is one of the most dedicated streakers the game has ever known and now has $10,000 of cold hard cash to back up his "Streak-cred" (terrible, I know). This month he racked up 134 wins so congratulations to Alex on yet another fantastic achievement.

Good luck in June to everyone and remember, a year-high $80,000 is up for grabs this month! So set your alarms, research your matchups and as always thank you for playing Streak for the Cash!

Pennsylvania gets another winner; $60,000 up for grabs in May

We began the month introducing our Streak Video Contest, and if we ran it again in May, many Streakers might be singing the "Streak Blues" or the "Nothing But Red Rap" because overall, it was rough April for a lot of you. However, there's always some glimmer to give everyone hope they will eventually come out on top as Streak Champion.

The glimmer of hope came in the face of Austin P. of Pipersville, PA, who put together a masterful W24 with his SF Austin Petrie entry, and picked well enough to hold the higher win % over another W24, to win $20,000. In a strange month where game and prop favorites were dropping left and right, Austin began a meticulous run on April 5. His streak spanned over much of the month before finally ending on April 23 when the Miami Heat did not win by double digits over the Bobcats. Ironically, that same prop made things very interesting because Kevin H. (goldsoundz01) reached a W24 as well by taking the Bobcats. The very next day though, he would also fall short of qualifying for the Streak Stash when the Indiana Pacers lost to the Atlanta Hawks.

A few other entries made a push for the longest streak, but could never quite get close enough, and all fell to the side. With one day left, the Streak board was loaded with enough props for a single W19 to make a run and sneak away with the Stash. After winning the morning prop, the now W20 took a chance with Chelsea at home against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League Semifinals. Madrid netted a 3-1 win, thus eliminating the final threat to Austin's W24. Being so close to an extra $20,000 had to hurt, but seeing your streak hold up for the initial $20,000 is no small consolation.

The "Most Wins" competition was exciting as usual and came down to the final prop of the month (we swear you can't script this stuff) and the final day saw quite the battle between a handful of Streakers. Our eventual winner was Kao T. with 117 wins...but it wasn't easy. Kao's entry went back and forth with HoustonTexans26 entry the whole day. On the final prop, Kao took "0 or 1 Goals" to be scored in the 1st Period of the Sharks/Kings Game 7. Trailing by 1 win, HoustonTexans26 took "2 or More Goals" and would've had the higher win %. A third entry, rjb1206 had an outside chance trailing by 1 win as well, but needed to have both the others ahead take the opposite. It didn't happen and they ended up finishing second with 116 wins. Congratulations to Kao on a great month and a well-earned $10,000! Good luck in May to everyone and thank you as always for playing Streak for the Cash!

$40,000 Stash Falls in March; Back-to-Back Monthly Wins Champion is Crowned

The final day of March, 2014 on Streak paralleled a fantastic scene from the 2007 Best Picture winner "No Country for Old Men" in which the central antagonist Anton Chigurh asks a gas station employee to call the results of an impending coin toss.

Anton Chigurh: What's the most you ever lost on a coin toss?

Gas Station Proprietor: Sir?

Anton Chigurh: The most. You ever lost. On a coin toss.

Gas Station Proprietor: I don't know. I couldn't say.

Anton Chigurh: Call it.

Gas Station Proprietor: Look, I need to know what I stand to win.

Anton Chigurh: Everything.

Heading into this morning our eventual $40,000 March winner Bradford O. found himself tied for the longest Streak of the month, but because his entry had the worse winning percentage (the first tiebreaker) he knew he had to make just one more pick to lock up the prize money. Thus, he found himself in the predicament of the gas station employee, needing to make a nearly 50/50 call to come out victorious. Except Bradford knew the stakes. In the film those stakes are something much more sinister, but luckily here at Streak you can only win or break even. Taking the Nationals, a -170 favorite, to get an Opening Day road win, things looked bleak early when the Mets took a 3-0 1st Inning lead. Despite battling back, the Nationals found themselves down 5-4 with 2 outs and 3-2 count in the top of the 9th, a lone strike away from losing the game. To Bradford's delight they drew a clutch walk and followed it up with a base hit, sending the game to extras tied at 5. Anthony Rendon then blasted a 3-run HR in the 10th, and after withstanding a bottom inning charge, the Nationals earned themselves an Opening Day win and made Bradford $40,000 richer. Luckily if someone ever asks him what's the most he's ever lost on a coin toss, Bradford might have to ponder it for a moment like the gas station employee did, and most importantly he won't have to say a small fortune.

The "Most Wins" competition was won for a second straight month by Max C. who takes home the $10,000 prize and has now firmly rooted himself into Streak legend alongside the all-time most wins leader Jeremy M., the only other person to ever accomplish this feat. Pretty good company to find yourself in, eh? Congratulations to Max on repeating and taking home the cash in back-to-back months! Good luck in April to everyone and thank you as always for playing Streak for the Cash!

Michigan resident wins $60,000 in February with the Highest Streak of All-time

February is one of the coldest months of the year, but here at Streak things started off hot and never cooled down from day one. Ten different entries racked up winning streaks of 25 or More, including the eventual $60,000 winner as Duke Y. of Comstock Park, MI set the record for the highest Streak of all-time, an unbelievable W35. A few details about the record setting streak; it began on February 6th and lasted until the final day of the month February 28th, the streak is remarkably still active and only ends because the month has come to a close, seven different sports were picked during the run and it also barely survived after Michel Mulder edged fellow countryman Jan Smeekens by 1/1000th of a second for the Gold in the 500m Olympic Speed Skating event back on February 10th. Congratulations to Duke for going down in Streak legend and besting over five million others throughout the years.

The "Most Wins" competition was as intense as any in recent memory, and now with the new and improved $10,000 prize on the line it's only fitting that such high drama surrounded the contest in its final hours this month. Jon R. of Charlotte, NC had a three win lead over closest competitor Max C. of Buffalo Grove, IL at the start of the day, but simply put February 28th, 2014 wasn't Jon's day. He ended February on a month-worse L7, forfeiting a Cavaliers over Jazz pick in the 1st Quarter that would have ended up winning him the $10,000 for a chance to take the final prop of the month after the Jazz got off to an early lead. Now tied at 124 wins, he owned the tiebreaker of best winning percentage and needed to either select the same thing as Max or to win the prop; either option would have ensured him the prize. On the Warriors @ Knicks 3rd Quarter total Points o/u prop Jon ended up taking 51 or Fewer (the vegas favorite as their line was 49) and Max took 52 or More. When 54 points were scored Max had completed a highly improbable comeback at the hands of an epic and unfortunate collapse by someone who otherwise had an incredible month. Congratulations to Max on sweating it out and taking home the cash! Good luck in March to everyone and thank you as always for your continued dedication to ESPN Fantasy!

New York resident wins $20,000 in January

Any month that has its fate decided by the outcome of the final prop is one to be cherished in Streak history, and January 2014 claimed its rightful place tonight after the drama that ensued. Going back a bit further in the month, W20 seemed to be the threshold that no streaker could reach as eight people that had W19s all tried and failed to get their elusive 20th win in a row. Finally, with less than 10 days remaining in the month, a plethora of high streaks came onto the scene, including the two entries that ended up battling it out tonight for $20,000. The first, Taylor B. of Annapolis, MD, seemed to be in excellent position after taking a literal pick 'em (according to Vegas) with Rider over St. Peter's and getting a W23 following their 71-53 blowout win. Left with only two props to choose from on the board, Taylor decided to select the USA women's national team to beat Canada by 2+ goals in an international friendly, knowing that if he won the $20,000 was guaranteed to be his by virtue of the highest win % tiebreaker (he was 23-1-1 at the time). Simultaneously the second competitor, George S. from Elmira, NY, rode the Thunder to an easy and stress free 120-95 win over the Nets for his 24th consecutive win. George and Taylor were then left to watch with what must have been great anticipation as the USA couldn't get the result they needed for a Streak victory, winning the game 1-0 and thus making George the $20,000 January winner! The "Most Wins" competition was won by Michael B., who gets the honor of winning the first ever $10,000 prize for his 125 wins in January. Congratulations to both George and Michael!

Although 2014 brought with it some major changes on Streak, the game you know and love has never been more popular thanks to everyone's continued dedication to ESPN Fantasy and your love for sports. We encourage you as always to tell everyone you know about the pleasures of streaking in order to ensure the game's continued success and stability as we move forward in this new year together. Good luck in February; now go get that stash!

New Jersey resident takes home $100,000 to end 2013

2013 brought us some of the greatest finishes of all time, some of the best memories we've had on this game and thousands of fun props to pick. The ending of the year was extra special for Conor B. from Fair Haven, NJ, who put together a W27 on the final prop of the year to win the $100,000 prize. He won after Duke failed to score a TD, despite having 1st and Goal from the 3-yard line. Another W26 had selected "Yes: Both Duke and Texas A&M would score a TD in the 3rd Qtr", while Conor took "No". An amazing finish to the year. The "Most Wins" competition was won by Kenny V., who gets the $2,500 prize for grabbing 132 wins in December. Congrats to everyone who won in December and in 2013!

Montana resident takes home $400,000 grand prize

It was a record-breaking month in November on Streak for the Cash. We had arguably the toughest race for the longest streak we have ever seen, as well as five entries reaching W30 or better. Oh, and most importantly, the $400,000 Streak Stash was finally won. It's the second largest Stash in the game's history. The lucky winner is Kevin E. from Dillon, MT, who put together an eye-popping W34 (the previous record was W31). Kevin's streak didn't win it going away though. In fact, his entry wasn't even the first to qualify for the Stash by reaching a W27. In total, six entries reached at least a W27, which made the final stretch of November that much better. The "Most Wins" competition was won by Mike T., who gets the $2,500 prize after notching the second best total in Streak history with 134 wins! Great job by everyone this month who put together the best streaks we have ever seen.

The Stash was finally hit, so it will reset in December and be worth a total of $100,000 (Stash + monthly). However, just like last December, the longest streak will win the $100,000 no matter what. The money cannot rollover into a new year, so if you get a win, technically you qualify for the Stash (although we are pretty sure it will take more than that). Our final Stunt Day is upon us too for 2013 with the annual Christmas Day Stunt. Congrats again to all of our winners, and as usual, we really appreciate your continued dedication to Streak for the Cash. Good luck!

Texas resident wins $50,000; massive $400,000 on the line in November

October was chalk full of action as usual with the MLB Playoffs, NFL, College Football and the NBA getting started. To go right along with it, Streak was on par with a great competition for the $50,000. The month saw few 20+ streaks (and no one really pushed for the Stash), but was definitely exciting, as three entries battled to a tie with a W23. Each entry had their own time to shine (one starting earlier in the month, one in the middle and one at the end), but when the dust settled, Evan K. from Hudson, OH emerged victorious due to having the highest win % (.672). Evan's streak began on October 11 and went all the way until October 23. Amazingly, he built it all on full-game props, mixing and matching all sorts of sports. Congratulations to Evan, as well as our two other W23s in October! The "Most Wins" competition was won by Ian D., who gets the $2,500 prize after the greatest finish to the "Most Wins" competition we've seen. With Ian and another entry tied atop the leaderboard with 111 wins, each split the final pick. The prop was: "Which team will score first in the 3rd Qtr?" The Bengals drove down and had a chip-shot field goal at worst, but Andy Dalton (CIN) threw an out route and had it picked off. The crazy part was having it taken to the house for a Dolphins' touchdown! Amazing turn of events!

Since the W27 Stash was not reached in October it will rollover and be worth an eye-popping $400,000 (Stash + monthly) in November. This is now one rollover short of tying the biggest Stash in Streak for the Cash history ($450,000 was the biggest). Also, mark your calendars for the next Stunt Day (finally) on November 12th. There's no better time to play and go big on Streak! Best of luck in November to all, and thank you for your continued dedication to the game.

Rhode Island resident wins $50,000; $350,000 up for grabs in October

September is always a fantastic month for Streakers as football, both college and pro, gets into full swing and brings yet another layer of complexity into the Streak mix. This time around it didn't exactly pave the way for big runs as no one had cleared the W21 hurdle with only a few days left in the month. Eight people did eventually manage to get a W22 or higher, and heading into the final evening three people still had a chance to claim the $50,000. One contender decided to take the Rangers with a W21 instead of taking the 1st and 2nd Half MNF props like they needed to in order to reach a W23, thus eliminating them from contention in a bizarre turn of events. That left Bob C. from Wakefield, RI tied for the lead at W23 with four matchups still available to get to W24. He didn't hold the all important highest winning % tiebreaker over the inactive W23 so he needed to gamble, for whichever matchup Bob chose would be the difference between earning $50,000 for his efforts and going home empty handed. Taking the Rays (-115) against the Rangers appeared to be the ultimate gamble, but in an albeit terrible pun "the Price was right" as David Price led the Rays to a 5-2 victory and secured him the number one spot in the final moments of September. Congratulations to Bob for coming out on top in what must have been a nerve-racking couple of hours to say the least! The "Most Wins" competition was won by Kenny G., who gets the $2,500 prize by notching his 102nd win on the final prop of the month and claiming the cash based on the first tiebreaker (highest winning %). It doesn't come any closer than that so a big congrats to Kenny!

Since the W27 Stash was not reached in September it will rollover and be worth a massive $350,000 (Stash + monthly) in October. This is now the second biggest Stash in Streak for the Cash history ($450,000 was the biggest) so get out there and start making picks! As always, good luck in October and thank you for your dedication to the game!

Pennsylvania resident starts 25-0 to win $50,000; Stash now $300,000

August was an interesting month, as far as the longest streak was concerned. We had multiple entries reach 20-0 or better before losing, which is quite the feat in itself. The tough barrier to break through for the month was "24". Five entries were halted at that number, including a lone W24 on the final day of the month, trying to sneak away with the $50,000 or more. After the dust settled, Brian A. from Erie, PA came out on top as the only one to crack the code and reach W25. After Brian lost his streak on August 24, a pair of W24's took their turn to try and tie him up, but both failed in the end. It appeared to be smooth sailing until the last 48 hours of August. dannymaryarski made a mad dash, including a miracle Ole Miss 75-yard TD with a minute left and a Bayern Munich goal with under ten seconds to play, to keep the streak dreams alive. After reaching a W24, (and owning the Tiebreaker with a higher win %) Ohio State was selected to win by 35+ points for $50,000. The Buckeyes rolled to an early 23-0 lead, but Buffalo clawed back, losing by 20 in the end. Crazy final days, but congrats to Brian on the big win! The "Most Wins" competition was won by Justin E., who won the $2,500 prize by racking up 111 wins. He came into the final day with a big enough lead, and eased his way to the cash.

Since the W27 Stash was not reached in August, it will rollover and be worth an impressive $300,000(Stash + monthly) in September. The total is tied for the second biggest Stash in Streak for the Cash history ($450,000 was the biggest). Good luck in September, and as always thank you for your dedication to the game!

Illinois resident takes home $50,000; Stash balloons to $250,000

The number "23" was the barrier nobody could break through in a tough July on Streak for the Cash. The month began slowly, and it looked as though a W20 might take home the prize. That all changed (as it usually does) during the last 10 days. Three entries made a push and rocketed up the leaderboard to 23 consecutive wins. However, the Yankees and the Padres ended their runs at the Stash. When the month settled, Glenn S. from Libertyville, IL came out on top by virtue of the highest win % (Tiebreaker #1). It wasn't without a bit of drama though as a single entry sat alone with one correct pick needed to tie him up and win with a higher win percentage on the final day of the month. It was not meant to be, as the -150 favorite Tampa Bay Rays were blanked by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The "Most Wins" competition was won by Sean C., who won the $2,500 prize by racking up 116 wins, good for two wins better than our runner-up.

Since the W27 Stash was not reached in July, it will rollover and be worth a massive $250,000(Stash + monthly). Good luck in August, and as always thank you for your dedication to the game!

Arkansas resident wins $50k; Stash is safe

June is always an interesting month on Streak for the Cash as the pressures of the playoffs mount for teams in sports we are very familiar with at this point, such as the NBA and NHL, while other sports are showcased for the first time all year that pose new and exciting challenges for streakers. This year these "wildcard" sports included cricket, the Tour de France, Track and Field, CFL, the Confederations Cup, the U-20 World Cup, the NBA Draft, multiple Tennis Grand Slam events, and the Men's and Women's College World Series among others. No one navigated these treacherous waters better than Alex P. from Bryant, AR whose W25 locked up the $50,000 first prize after a dizzying run that lasted a mere six days. What's most remarkable about the streak is certainly up for debate; was it the fact that seven different sports were selected during the winning streak, that Alex got a stunning seven wins on June 27th alone or perhaps that the plethora of miracle comebacks which kept the streak alive seemed to become par for the course down the stretch? Whatever it was, June was surely the "month of Alex" as the "Most Wins" competition was a massive blowout for yet another Alex, Alex W. who won the $2,500 prize by racking up 126 wins and beating out the 2nd place finisher by 9 spots.

Since the W27 Stash was not reached in June it will rollover and be worth $150,000, making the July grand total $200,000 (Stash + monthly). Good luck this month and as always thank you for your dedication to the game!

North Carolina resident wins $50k; Stash remains untouched

As our dedicated streakers know, May was certainly one of the toughest months in recent memory. For the first couple weeks it seemed impossible for anyone to reach W20 let alone put the stash in jeopardy with a streak near W27, but Jason D. from Hickory, NC managed to get a W24, going 14-0 on MLB full game props during the streak until the Yankees lost on May 27th and ended the remarkable run. In the last few days no challenger seemed to have a chance at surpassing Jason until americansteelxx found themself with a W22 earlier tonight after some intelligent streaking. Everyone was waiting with great anticipation for the lone challenger's final picks only to be shocked by their selection of the Phillies (a 3+ hour baseball game) at 7:05 pm ET, thereby locking themself out of the remaining windows and a chance at $50,000.

The "Most Wins" competition was a blowout in Streak terms as Miriam W. took home the $2,500 prize by a 4-win margin of victory, especially considering the recent run of tiebreakers that have decided the winner of this competition in the previous months.

Since the W27 Stash was not reached in May it will carry over and be worth $100,000, making the June grand total $150,000 (Stash + Monthly). Good luck and thank you for your dedication to the game!

Indiana resident takes home $50k

Without question, March 31st, 2013 will go down as one of the most exciting and eventful days in Streak history. Matt Renn from Georgetown, IN, started Sunday with a W24, one behind the current leader who had a W25. Making a very gutsy but intelligent call, Matt took Michigan (a 3 point underdog) over Florida for his first green of the day. With two entries now at W25 he picked Louisville (while the other W25 took Duke) who cruised to an 85-63 victory, earning him a W26 and guaranteeing him the $50k prize. Now free rolling, Matt elected to take the final prop of the month (No HR during innings 4-6) for a chance at the $100k Stash, but nothing could have prepared him for the absolute chaos that ensued. He survived 5 half innings without a HR, but in a stunning turn of events that will go down in Streak legend, Rick Ankiel hit a HR on a 3-2 count with 2 outs in the bottom of the 6th to preserve the stash and shock the Streak world. You can pretty much gaurantee this will be the #1 Streak moment of 2013 and will certainly never be forgotten.

The "Most Wins" competition was also very intense. Going into that same final prop of March, two entries both had an incredible 142 wins. Both entries happened to pick Yes for a HR during innings 4-6, and so as it often comes down to the contest was decided on a tiebreaker (highest win %). Congrats to Collin Shadle for taking home the $2,500 prize.

The Streak Stash was not hit in March, so it will rollover to April and be worth $150,000. If someone reaches a W27 or greater, they will be eligible to claim the grand prize of $200,000 (Stash + Monthly). Good luck Streakers and remember, the next Stunt Day is April 11, 2013 focusing on the opening round of The Masters.

Another Ohio Resident Puts Together the Longest Streak

What is going on in Ohio? First, we had Traci Leopold from Delaware, OH win the $100k Streak Stash in January. To follow that up though, Alissa Horstman from New Albany, OH, made a late run in February to take home $50,000 with a W24. To make things more interesting, New Albany, OH is roughly 30-35 minutes away from Delaware, OH. If you live around there, you might want to start playing Streak for the Cash. As far as the action went, it was a tight race with only a few days left. Several entries entered the final 48 hours with streaks of W21 or higher. Horstman had to sweat it out after she lost on February 25, but her closest competition (a W23) fell after Memphis had its 18-game winning streak snapped by Xavier. Horstman's winning pick for a W24 came when Iowa State and Kansas combined for well over 71 points in the 2nd half of their "Big Monday" tilt.

Quite the finish we had for the "Most Wins" competition. With two props left, we had four entries sitting at 120 wins. The 1st half prop in the Duke/Virginia basketball game split the picks at two apiece. The total points scored went under, leaving two left to try and claim the $2,500. The final prop was "Which SCORE will OCCUR FIRST in the 2nd Half?" The options were 1) Made 3-Pointer or 2) Made Free Throw. Both entries on top took the made 3-pointer. About 20 seconds into the half, a 3 was drained and that was the end of it. Congrats to Tyler Finn for taking home the $2,500 prize.

The Streak Stash was not claimed in February, so it will now rollover to March and be worth $150,000. If someone reaches a W27 or greater, they will be eligible to claim the grand prize. Bring on March Madness and the coming of Spring! Good luck Streakers.

Ohio Native Wins January Stash

January is starting to look like lady's month on Streak for the Cash. For the second year in a row, we kicked the New Year off with a female taking home the $100,000 Streak Stash. This year, Traci Leopold from Lewis Center, OH, put together a great run of 27 straight wins. Leopold played an outstanding month, building a sizeable streak before slowing it down and picking smart choices. Heading into the final week, her THE Urban Legends Entry was not in the spotlight, as two other entries were matching one another win for win. One of the entries finally fell when the Miami Heat lost to the Boston Celtics in OT, which left the door ajar for Leopold make a run at the current leader at W24. Things completely went her way after carsh300 entry finally lost with a W24. With only a couple of days to play in the month, Leopold needed 2 wins to reach the W27 Streak Stash mark. She pulled it off on January 30 after Southampton only lost by 1 to Manchester United, and the Miami Heat dominated the Brooklyn Nets. The win makes Leopold only the fourth woman to ever win the "Longest Streak" competition and just the second female Stash winner.

On the "Most Wins" side of things, what a great finish to the month. It's been awhile since we have had a really good race down the final stretch. At the start of the final day, there were a handful of entries still alive for the $2,500 prize, but by the time we got to the final prop of the night, there were only two. Amazingly, both entries (tied at 121 wins) picked opposing sides of the Illinois/Michigan State 2nd-half prop: How many 3-Pointers will be made in the 2nd half? Our eventual winner, Rick Clark, took 6 or Fewer and with 1.9 seconds left, Illinois had a shot for a buzzer-beater to make the 7th 3-pointer. However, they failed to get the shot off and handed Clark the cash.

We now head into a new month (February) where the Stash will reset and be worth $100,000 to a lucky someone if they can reach at least a W27. Thanks for a great start to the year, and good luck!

Year Ends With Wisconsin Man Grabbing $100,000

The year 2012 started with our first ever female "Longest Streak" winner, saw two Stashes fall and several others win big money. The final winner for the "Longest Streak" was Gary Perdue, who put together a solid run of 22 straight wins to win the $100,000 on Tiebreaker #1 (higher win %). Perdue won the Stash because at the end of each year, we give it to the longest streak in December no matter what their streak is. It was a fun month with a lot of up and down props, a Christmas Stunt and several college bowl games, but when it was all said and done, December capped a wonderful year in Streak for the Cash.

The "Most Wins" competition saw Carter F. of Chesterbrook, PA climb to the top of the leaderboard after piling up 115 wins. He clinched the $2,500 on the final prop of the year when LSU scored a TD to start the 2nd half in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

We've reached the end of a great 2012, but to relive it a bit, take a look back at our Top 10 Moments. The Streak Stash will reset and be worth $100,000 (Stash + Monthly) in the month of January. That means if anyone hits a W27 or better, they will be eligible to win the Stash. Along with that, all of the other prizes will return with the same general gameplay. Happy New Year to everyone, and thanks for playing!

Michigan resident takes November Stash for $300,000

It had to fall again at some point, and November happened to be that month. The Streak Stash was no match for Jason Abro, who put together an amazing run of 28 straight wins to claim the grand prize.

Abro began the month with a L2, but that was the end of his losing streak as he clicked off 28 consecutive wins from Nov. 1 to Nov. 15. The magic number of 27 straight wins to qualify for the Stash was hit on Nov. 15 when Boston College only lost by 10 points to Baylor in basketball. Abro selected Any Other Result in that prop, which was up against Baylor winning by 15+ Points. Despite reaching the Stash mark of W27 (eventually ending with a W28 as said before), there was still half the month left. With several other entries hot on his tail, our winner had to wait it out for 15 days. The closest competitor reached a W25 shortly after Abro lost but fell a few short when Marquette lost to Butler on a buzzer-beater in the Maui Invitational. Nobody else ever got close enough to challenge for the Stash after that.

The "Most Wins" competition found Sam W. of Richmond, VA atop the leaderboard after racking up 124 wins, beating the second place finisher by three. He takes home $2,500 for his month long effort.

Since the Stash was reached in November, it will start over at $50,000 in December. But since its the final month of the year that means the highest streak of the month will take home $100,000 (Stash + Monthly), so let the competition begin! Good luck, and thanks for playing!

Delaware resident nabs improbable $50K on late PK

We swear here at Streak for the Cash you can't even script what happens sometimes in this game. The month of October proved to set the bar even higher as far as the wildest finish to a month ever. To start out, the month looked like it could be the first time since July '11 that nobody would hit a W20. That all changed in the final 48 hours when two entries battled it out, ultimately ending in a soccer showdown that defied the impossible. Asit Chadha finally emerged victorious after winning on a tiebreaker (higher winning %) over Rob Deines' W21.

Let's set the table on how the final day went shall we? Coming into the day, Deines sat with a W20, while Chadha waited in the wings with a W19 (and the higher win % remember). Deines' RaceCarDriver#99 Enry caught lightning in a bottle on the first prop of the day. He chose Novak Djokovic to lose 7 or More Games, but it looked bleak after Djokovic blanked Sam Querrey, 6-0, in Set 1. An unthinkable comeback ensued after Djokovic jumped to a 2-0 lead in Set 2. Querrey muscled back and took the 2nd set in a tiebreak, 7-6. With a two-win cushion, Deines played the waiting game to see what Chadha would do. Chadha pounced right away, grabbing an easy win with CSKA Moscow.

The next prop the two Streakers would take would end up deciding it all. Chadha took Chelsea against Manchester United, while Deines rolled with Borussia Monchengladbach against Fortuna Dusseldorf. Chelsea got down early and played a goal behind for much of the game. Meanwhile, Borussia and Dusseldorf battled to a 0-0 score in regulation and headed to Extra Time. In Extra Time, Dusseldorf struck and would hold on to win, 1-0, thus ending Deines' streak. He still had a chance if Manchester United could hold on to beat Chelsea (and it looked like they would). But that's when chaos ensued. Chelsea was granted a miracle PK with only seconds to spare (93rd minute) to force Extra Time. Not out of the woods, Chadha still needed Chelsea to win...and they didn't disappoint, winning 5-4. The miracle comeback won Chadha $50,000 and one heck of a story. Despite the loss, Streak for the Cash wishes to congratulate Deines and his run because before the 21 straight wins, he had been sitting with a monthly record of 17-40! Great comeback Mr. Deines! On behalf of ESPN Fantasy, congratulations to both entrants for giving us one great finish.

The "Most Wins" competition was easygoing in the end for Jamison Smith of Fort Myers, FL after rolling up 117 wins to outdistance the competition by a solid margin. He takes home $2,500 for his effort.

Since the Stash was not reached in October, it will rollover to $250,000 in November. That means if anyone reaches W27, they bank a hefty $300,000 (Stash + Monthly)! Good luck, and thanks for playing!

Indiana man Wins $50,000 with the help of Eli Manning

It came down to the 1st half's final drive of the last game of the month on Streak for the Cash in September to see a winner seperate themselves from the pack, but Brian Kelly emerged with a W22, winning $50K by riding the arm of Eli Manning. Tied at W21 with one other entry, Brian needed Eli to throw for at least 63 yards on the last drive to win the 1st Half passing yards prop against challenger Michael Vick. It seemed an impossible feat to pull off considering Manning had only racked up 70 yards in the air the entire half thus far, but streakers know that nothing is ever a certainty in the streak universe. Once Manning threw a 32 yard bomb to Domenik Hixon on the first play of the drive, the impossible was suddenly a distinct possibility. Manning ended up throwing for an astounding 81 yards on the drive, pulling off the miracle and making Brian $50k richer! On behalf of ESPN Fantasy, congratulations to him on an remarkable streak.

The "Most Wins" competition was again decided by a tiebreak, with Alisa Valdenegro earning the cash by means of a higher winning % (.628 to .625). She takes home $2,500 for her month long effort.

Since the Stash was not reached in September, it will rollover to $200,000 in October. That means if anyone reaches W27, they will bank $250,000 (Stash + Monthly)! Good luck in October, and thanks for playing!

Random Drawing Hands Illinois Man $5,000 Stunt Prize

A stunt day to remember, that's for sure. After rain delays, lightning delays and just pure chaos, three entries sat atop the stunt leaderboard with a W13. Our eventual winner (via random drawing, which is the third tiebreaker) was Jeff Haymes from Willow Springs, IL. Haymes chose to sit out the final prop available on the night, despite being able to win the $5,000 outright had he won the prop. Instead, he sat back and watched two other entries tie him up after a Missouri RB scampered for 24 yards on the final play of the game to push the 4th quarter prop (How many yards will be gained? Options: 144 yards or fewer OR 145 yards or more) over. However, he still managed to snag the winnings by being the lucky winner of the drawing. Maybe make it easy and go for the outright win next time haha!

Thank you to all who participated! Mark your calendars for the next stunt day, which will be December 25, 2012.

Another New Jersey Native Wins $50,000 with August Streak

Streak for the Cash has seen a few great finishes to the "Longest Streak" competition in its four-year history, but the final 48 hours of August '12 was something to behold. With the Olympics, a Stunt Day and just a plethora of tough props, nobody made any real run at the Stash, or a big streak in general. Heading into the final five days of the month, a W21 was the leader in the clubhouse. That looked like it might hold up until an onslaught of entries (24 in total) either tied or passed it up. When the dust cleared, Fred Robins emerged with a W23, winning the $50K by virtue of a higher winning % over five others. The competition was officially over after huge underdog, Atletico Madrid, stomped Chelsea, 4-1, in the UEFA Super Cup and Mainz fell to Greuther Furth in a German Bundesliga game. With the victory, that makes two of the last five winners from the state of New Jersey. Obviously something going right in the Garden State.

The "Most Wins" competition saw the record number of wins wins shattered by several entries, but in the end it was decided by the thinnest of margins. Dwight Clark edged out one other entry with 130 wins by holding a higher winning % (.653 to .650). He takes home $2,500 for his record-setting effort.

Since the Stash was not reached in August, it will rollover to $150,000 in September. That means if anyone reaches W27, they will bank a hefty $200,000 (Stash + Monthly)! Good luck in September, and thanks for playing! Oh, and bring on some football!

Super Wednesday Stunt Full of Action from the London Games

From the start, Super Wednesday was a nail biting experience. After Brazil edged out Argentina in Men's Volleyball to win the first prop 5-4, streakers felt the pressure and knew the day would bring tension, excitement and edge of your seat action. Some of the more memorable props included Jose Calderon winning the "first letter of the last name" prop that saw multiple misses from players on both sides of the action, Lashinda Demus losing the 400m hurdles event by a fraction of a second and Kevin Love throwing down off a beautiful feed from LeBron James to the elation of the almost 60,000 people that were rooting for a bench player to score in the final 2 minutes of the half. William Karahalios of Indiana, PA navigated the gauntlet of props from the London Games and played it smart, streaking his way to a W17 and then abstaining from the multiple Wednesday Night Baseball props that eliminated his competition and secured him a spot in Streak for the Cash history.

For his efforts, Karahalios took home the $5,000 cash prize. Congratulations to him, as another successful stunt comes to a close.

Texas Streak Legend finally Earns $50,000

Kathryn Reid has streaked her way into fantasy immortality by picking an impressive 24 matchups correctly in a row. In one of the most astounding feats in Streak history, Kathryn accumulated her third all-time streak of at least 22 wins in a row, instantly vaulting her into Streak legend status and bringing July to an epic conclusion. As our loyal users would agree, getting a streak of 22 wins in a row is a difficult enough task to accomplish once in a lifetime. But achieving that feat for a shocking third time is a heroic accomplishment, one that will be well rewarded with the $50,000 first prize. This marks a proud chapter in Kathryn's Streak history book that began on November 30, 2008 when she made her first ever pick. After two heartbreaking defeats with a W22 or above in September 2011 and then again two months later in November 2011, she has finally cemented her spot in the history books. She's done the state of Texas proud, taking the cash back home to her residence in the town of Allen. The monthly prize couldn't have gone to a more deserving or more accomplished Streak player, so from everyone at ESPN...Congratulations!

The "Most Wins" race was as close as humanly possible with two entries tied at 112 wins. The tiebreaker was decided by a single loss, with Josh Van from Ewa Beach, HI edging out his competition. The Hawaii native takes home the $2,500 prize and all the glory in stunning fashion.

Since the Stash was not reached in July, it will rollover to $100,000 in August. That means if anyone reaches W27, they will bank a cool $150,000 (Stash + Monthly)! Good luck in August and thanks for playing!

Unbelievable Run Claims Mega Stash

It had to happen eventually. The Stash had witnessed many attacks, only to have the last laugh. However, a bigger challenge proved to be too much in the form of 31-year old Chad Miller from Cockeysville, MD, who put together one of the most mind-boggling runs in Streak for the Cash history. Chad won an astounding 27 straight in only ten days to snatch the $300,000 grand prize. What made the run even more impressive is it didn't appear to matter what matchups or props were on the table (he selected one-hole golf props, 1st half soccer props, and the list goes on). He picked everything, and he did it quickly. The last ten wins in his streak occurred in a 72-hour span. Considering most entrants tend to slow their picking when they get to W20, this makes the run something that might not be seen again on Streak for the Cash. A few challengers made some late runs, but nobody could quite catch our eventual winner.

The "Most Wins" race was a coast to the finish line for Josh Powell from Deshler, OH after holding a three-game lead heading into the final four props. He finished with a record-tying 124 wins on the month to claim the $2,500 prize.

With the Stash falling for the first time since January, it will now start over with July at $50,000. That means if a W27 is reached in the month of July, the winner will take home $100,000 (Stash + Monthly). Keep a watch for an announcement on when our Olympics Stunt Day will be played. Thanks to everyone for playing and good luck in July!

NBA Draft Thursday Stunt Decided on Final Prop

Now that was a finish! The NBA Draft Thursday stunt was full of twists and turns, as one entry jumped out to a commanding lead, only to be thwarted in the end after some passive playing. C. Valentine of Watseka, IL broke a 3-way tie on the last NBA Draft prop of the night to give him a W16. Valentine and one other entry were given a chance to make a run at the day's prize after CashTheCheck stopped making picks, despite holding a four-game lead with five props left. By the time the final pick came around, he was in a battle with two others at W15. Valentine selected "Any Other Conference" for the #27 overall pick, as opposed to the "Big 12, Big Ten or Big East." The 2012 NBA champion, Miami Heat selected Arnett Moultrie from Mississippi State, and it was all over in a flash.

For his efforts, Valentine took home the $5,000 cash prize. Congratulations to him, as another successful stunt comes to a close.

Stash Falls After Unthinkable Run

It had been awhile (January '12) since the Streak Stash had been reached, but in the heat of June, it finally gave in. Pending verification, the $300,000 prize will be awarded at the month's end after miller Entry went on a run that Streak for the Cash has rarely seen. It took him only ten days to reach W27, including his final nine picks in a 72 hour span. Showing no fear, the current leader selected four matchups from four separate sports in his final ten picks, which included three prop bets. There were many moments where it looked as though his unbelievable run would come to an end, but he somehow found a way to pull them each out (i.e. The New York Red Bulls tying the Vancouver Whitecaps with a goal in the 86th minute). To top it all off, this is the first month our leader has played Streak for the Cash. Maybe he should've joined earlier?

The month is still not over with several others trying to chase down the leader and steal the Stash from him, but who says our leader will stop at 27 wins? Stay tuned to find out how it all shakes out!

Ineligibility leads to Minnesota man winning $50,000

In a turn of events, our original May winner for the longest streak, Kevo2395, was ruled ineligible due to being underage. The ruling therefore allowed Amende92, who blew out the competition en route to a W23 halfway through the month, to take home the $50,000 prize. Congratulations to J. Amende of Minnetrista, MN for his fantastic play in the month of May. What a wild 48 hours it must have been for him, going from losing to winning in the blink of an eye.

The "Most Wins" race came down to the very end as well, where redjohn2424 Entry from Amelia, OH outdueled longtime Streaker JuanCarlo23 and won by one win, 118 to 117. Each entrant picked opposing teams in the same Alabama vs. Tennessee WCWS game, and redjohn2424 Entry came out on top.

Things are about to heat up as far as the Stash is concerned. Yet again, nobody reached the necessary streak, so it will roll over into June. That means that if someone can reach a W27 in June, they will pocket $300,000! Also, be sure to circle your calendars on Thursday, June 28th for our next Stunt Day, which is NBA Draft day. Good luck to all!

Jerseyite rides MLB matchups to W22 for $50,000 prize in April

Congrats to our $50,000 longest winning streak winner for April – 37-year old Dax Tartar from Jackson, NJ – whose daxter4 entry reached W22 and won the first tiebreaker (winning %) over Bankjob from Wausau, WI. Impressive that 17 of daxter4's 21 consecutive wins came from straight up MLB games. Several entries had chances to catch him down the stretch, but all came up just short at W21.

The "Most Wins" contest came down to the final hour of the month, where smiggy80 from Milwaukee, WI outlasted rfivepin from Bolingbrook, IL.

Once again the Stash was not reached, so the stakes are raised as it rolls over to May worth $200,000. That means if someone gets to W27 in May they'll win a grand total of $250,000 (Stash + Monthly). Good luck to all!

Great job to everyone who finished with more wins than The Messenger in March, and thanks to everyone who tried. Best of luck to everyone in April, which will include two Stunt Days. The first will be a Super Thursday Stunt (Thursday, April 5th) and the second will be NFL Draft day (Thursday, April 26th).

Pennsylvanians Sweep March Prizes

March was a rough month for long winning streaks, but it was competitive down to the last few days. Midway through the month, a pair of W21 streaks were stopped, and it seemed as though it was only a matter of time before another entry passed them up. However, a week and a half went by without a successor after another W21 came up short in the entrant's quest to pass the leader, and it looked as though mr_nikiping Entry would survive with a W21. That all came to a halt as T. Messineo of Turtle Creek, PA made a late run to nab the $50,000 prize when her terrimessineo Entry reached W22 after Stanford defeated Minnesota for the NIT championship. A few entries trailed our eventual winner (who finished with a W23) by 3 or 4 wins going into the last day of the month, but there was no real threat made by any of them to overtake her. As far as the race for the Stash went, Messineo needed to successully pick four straight on the final day of March to reach it. The chase ended before it really started when Maria Sharapova fell in the Sony Ericsson Open Final.

The "Most Wins" race came down to the very end, where El hombre from Philadelphia, PA outlasted rdog 11 Entry and won by one win, 124 to 123. Each entrant picked opposing teams in the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Memphis Grizzlies game (won by Memphis), and El hombre came out on top.

The state of Pennsylvania made a clean sweep of the contests in March, so other states have some lofty expectations to live up to now. Since the Streak Stash wasn't won, for the second consecutive month the amount will roll over. That means that if someone can reach a W27 in April, they will pocket $200,000! Good luck to all!

Kudos to everyone who finished with more wins than The Messenger in February and thanks to everyone who tried. Now that it's known The Messenger's strategy is picking every possible matchup, we expect more competition in March, which will include a Stunt Day on the first day of the NCAA Tournament (Thursday, March 15).

Tense 48 Hours Decides Streak Winner In February; Stash Survives

My how things heated up quickly on February 26th. With two entries threatening the Stash and trying to knock each other out for the guaranteed $50,000, it was Streak For The Cash that fought the hardest. Our eventual winner, M. Grant of Raleigh, NC took a gamble with a 1-game lead over terry entry by picking Louisville to win by double digits over Pittsburgh. The Cardinals couldn't distance themselves from the pesky Panthers and won by only 3 points, ending Grant Entry's run with a W25. However, at that exact moment, terry entry was riding the hopes of Rory McIlroy to win the Accenture Match Play Championship over Hunter Mahan. Mahan dusted McIlroy through the first nine holes and hung on to capture the title, ending terry entry's streak at W24. With both leaders going down, the door was wide open for several entrants to swoop in and steal the winnings, but one by one, they all faltered on February 27th and 28th to preserve Grant Entry as the winner. The Stash seemed almost determined to not let anyone near it after a mad dash down the stretch to snag it by six users.

Since the Streak Stash wasn't won, the amount will roll over to the month of March. That means that if someone can reach a W27 in March, they will walk away with a hefty $150,000! Good luck to all!

On the "Most Wins" side, the state of North Carolina completed the double as Frey, hailing from Charlotte, NC, clinched the $2,500 prize with 104 wins.

A final note for you Streakers in the "Beat The Messenger" group. Find out tonight who has won the first random drawing for $1,000 by finishing ahead of The Messenger.

Stash Winner Blows Out The Competition

Streak for the Cash saw history in the month of January with our first female monthly winner, and she did so by running away with the longest streak of the month. Thanks to a Swansea City draw against EPL powerhouse, Chelsea, Lindsay W. from West Palm Beach, FL reached our Streak Stash to finish with a W27, earning herself $100,000. She won by an astonishing five wins (two other users reached a W22), thanks in most part to a 9-1 mark in college basketball matchups.

As for the most wins category, BGSU Falcons took the cake with 102 wins, beating out oilyjudd who finished with 99. The win earned him $2,500! Good luck to everyone in February and don't forget to beat the Messenger!

Since the Streak Stash was won, the amount will reset for the month of February. That means that if someone can reach a W27 in February, they will walk away with a cool $100,000! Good luck to all!

Virginia resident wins $200k as stash falls

All good things must eventually come to an end (or in this case reset), and just when we thought the stash was safe it fell in the final hours of April to a remarkable run. Michael Swanson from Palmyra, VA (population 104 people as of 2010), began the month with a 15-26 record before doing the near-impossible by winning 27 matchups in a row. Beginning the day in a 2-way tie at W24, Michael elected to take Ural (a +120 underdog!) for a road win in Division 1 Russian soccer and got the 2-0 victory, giving him sole possession of first place with a gutsy play. Both he and the W24 who hadn't yet picked on Tuesday then took the heavily favored Real Madrid to win at home in their UEFA Champions League semifinal. As more and more time ticked off the clock during the 0-0 draw late in the 2nd Half, the stash began to look safe. But Real Madrid put an end to that, scoring back to back goals in the 83rd and 88th minute to secure Michael a W26. Now one win away from the stash, he took Ty Lawson's 1st Half Points against Klay Thompson's (whom the W25 took). This became the pinnacle of drama, for the W25 right behind him had a perfect 25-0-0 record, and if Klay Thompson pulled it off Michael would have lost the tiebreaker with both entries tied at W26. This meant Lawson's 1st Half Points would either secure him $200,000 or leave him without a dime to show for his efforts. But Michael's streak simply refused to end as Lawson edged out Thompson 11-9, taking down the stash in dramatic fashion.

The "Most Wins" competition was highly competitive as no one could pull away from one another in April. And in what seems to be a normal occurance these days, the race was so close that it ended in a tie at 132 wins with Ian Polhill taking home the $2,500 prize on a tiebreaker (highest win %).

The Streak Stash was hit in April so it will reset in May and be worth $50,000. If someone reaches a W27 or greater, they will be eligible to claim the grand prize of $100,000 (Stash + Monthly). Good luck Streakers!
