Although I'm sure 10,000 is needed for a detailed analysis or a winnings report, but for playing tendencies 1k+ isn't enough? I use PT + PAHUD and the most hands I have on anyone is 1,489. You're telling me that all the data I use from PAHUD is worthless? I realize you're not saying that directly, and the point is that you can't make any concrete conclusions, but his sample is certainly large enough to make a few comments on. If you watch a rock and a manic play for 1k hands you're going to realize which one is which. Unfortunately he seems to have made a transcription error or else there is a problem with the program, as the results shown look extremely unlikely.
