In the second of our How To Become a Regular Fantasy Polo Winner series, we take a look at the number 2 habit of successful players: looking back at past stats and trends!
It might sound simple but one of the best things you can be doing in the off season is research on past tournaments. On our Fixtures page, we have all the matches of all the tournaments we have covered since the start of 2017. That means you have an absolute wealth of stats and information at your fingertips that can help you analyze players better and make better choices in the future.
You can also check out stats from tonnes of other sources like the AAP page, the USPA page, Pololine and other media sources plus Instagram is a mine of stats and facts and figures. Follow teams and players and keep up with all the information from past tournaments.
Knowledge of past injuries can also be a great help. If you know a player is vulnerable having taken a big fall in previous tournaments or is suffering from a recurring injury then he may be worth leaving out of your team to reduce your risk of losing a player halfway through the tournament.
Our regular winners are polo mad individuals who keep up with the news and the stats and are ready with their star line ups from day one so for your chance to win big prize money take a leaf out of their books.
