Fornatale: New email series a must-read for contest players


I recently created an e-mail series about contest play based on my new book, “The Winning Contest Player.” The early response to the series has been enthusiastic. There is still time for readers to sign up to check it out and take advantage of a special offer for a DRF Bets sign-up bonus while they're at it.

The series contains six parts in all, delivered one a day for six days, covering many of the different aspects of contest play.

The first part takes a step back and looks at the big picture, offering seven reasons why the best players compete in tournaments.

In part two, we delve into the differences between contest play and everyday play, with contributions from contest expert Noel Michaels.

Former NHC Tour champ Paul Shurman helps out in our third segment, where he shares his number one most important key to contest play (HINT: It isn't luck).

You can’t succeed longterm in contests without a game plan, and Eric Moomey – one of the most consistently successful online players – walks us through how to construct one in part four.

Information is power. In the fifth email in our series, Mike Maloney, Ricky Zimmer and Mark McGuire talk specifically about how they use Formulator to help them in both contest and everyday play.

And we bring it all back home in the series finale with a discussion with the Million Dollar Man (and Horseplayers star) Michael Beychok, who shares invaulable insights about the all-important mental side of the game -- he credits his big win to his improvement in this area.
