Smart Play is the first professional book to reveal the secrets of the cracks and explain what the world’s best players learn and master intuitively from childhood legs up in terms of polo tactics and tricks. This volume delves into the area of rules, fouls and moves without becoming theoretical or long-winded. The book also describes the simple exercises through which you can mentally train and perfect your ability, keeping track and sharpening your anticipation of the course of the game, to learn to read and understand the game perfectly – because when the ball is played, it is already too late.
Smart play is the synergy of perfect riding, technically flawless movement sequences and, above all, lightning-fast reactions to different game situations – and always with a simultaneous focus on the teammates but also opponents and their technical skills. Many exercises, templates, tips, but also analyses and descriptions of standard situations and possible game alternatives are simply described and documented with numerous pictures and graphics. The mental training program from the first volume of the series is supplemented and deepened to perfectly round off your own training.
