If you are interested in the book it is called Bad for Your Wealth: A scientific, evidence-based study of why you should avoid playing poker tournaments, by Ramy Christopher Tadros, calculations and technical concepts verified by Minimax Statistical Consulting, LLC.
It's a fun read and very educational. There is a bit of maths, however. But it's not too complex.
OK, I am a tourny player, and my game improved immensely when I started staying off the cash tables. If only I had known to stop playing tournys that my cash game would improve. OK, I will not play any tournys today, cash tables here I come, I got all the info I need.
Not sue where this thread is headed but it will certainly be amusing.......
BTW, if you play tennis, stay away from ping pong, it is the best way to improve your game............
