I've been playing for money for 10 years now and those leagues are a lot different from free leagues. You cut out a lot of BS and people are more serious. Playoffs are ridiculously thrilling when you are playing for a couple thousand bucks. Just like gambling but 10 times the fun.
I'm not a huge fan of H2H. I'll play it, but I definitely enjoy Roto much, much more. I think it's because it mimics the marathon nature of a baseball season especially in the statistical sense negating much of the "luck" factor. I don't think I'd put a significant amount of money on the line if it was a H2H league unless it was really deep.
I've played smaller money leagues before, but unless it's really going to make an significant impact in my wallet then it's just like playing any other league to me really - I'll try to win just as hard.
I like the playoff system. Keeps more players in = more money.
