One frequently asked question from new tournament players is, “Why are show prices excluded from typical contest formats?” It’s a good question. After all, there’s something to be said for rewarding longshot players whose horses run third – and as we all know, longshots run second and third a lot more often than they win.

David Gutfreund is a contest player par excellence. In November, he won $156,000 by winning the main event of the Heartland Poker Tour. Gutfreund is a natural when it comes to handicapping contests as well. He’s an annual attendee at the National Handicapping Championship, and in 2012, he won $65,000 at the Players’ Challenge in Sioux Falls, S.D. He knows the contest game from both sides – he also is a partner in Derby Wars – and on Sunday, he earned his second NHC qualification for 2015 via DRFBets.com.
