    One of the things I like to do is watch handicapping videos. One thing I’ve noticed is that Dave Schwartz and Michael Pizzolla have two totally different styles. Michael says if a race doesn’t have value he doesn’t play it. Dave says he plays them all! no race is unplayable! Here's Pizzolla's Preakness rant. I always give him credit for these because he does them before the race. Who's style would you say your playing style is more like? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaXfYto4Tys

    That was a good chuckle! Its my view that any race in which an individual can't find a play acceptable to them, is "unplayable" . I choose to pick my spots rather than playing every race but everyone has to find their own comfort level.

    I am curious as to how Pizzolla defines value. If he's measuring against the tote board, the whales can eat him up. If he's waiting for a horse that will obviously go off at a good price, he'll need to have a lot of patience. I do have some unplayable races, but not many.

    Key point is that all races have a way to play them.

    They can be quantified as:
    1. Bet Against 1.21
    Bet Against a horse projected to be less than 1.22:1
    This race is considered chaotic and there will be no handicapping.
    (Can't have a Chaos Race with less than 7 horses.)

    2. Bet Against Low Odds (BALO)
    Bet Against a horse projected to be less than 3/1
    This race will be a conventional Contender Selection race, after the BALO horse(s) have been removed.

    3. Single 1.21
    Race with a 1.21 horse who deserves to be singled.

    BTW, I used to do quite a few Live Play Sessions but only for HSH users.
    When I release Studio I'll go back to doing them.

    I believe a players style hinges on their personality. Some are grinders and others are splash players going for the big score. And then there are those in between. I don't believe people can play for any length of time opposite of their personality.
