    Interesting, but simply reiterates what we already know: tournament players are variance monkeys. The most successful simply run better, results do not correlate to skill, etc. etc.

    His sample sizes might be a bit off though, 5000/year online mtts doesn't seem like much for a full time player.

    It's interesting, but as has already been pointed out on 2+2 it's very easy to work around this, even being a mediocre player like myself, by grinding tournaments with smaller fields.
