comment Are WSOP hand logs available to the public?
Yeah, I agree - a final-table-only record is much more possible (to the point of being relatively likely), though I don't know of anywhere that actually does it.

As an aside, how much would you consider a fair price if someone were to do this well?

comment Insurance in cash games. In which situations is it a good idea and for how much -EV?
Barring a stake or money you have specifically set aside as funds you are happy to lose, you should never play games you are under bankrolled for. Part of the reason for that is to avoid losing EV to situations that you shouldn't be in.

comment Handling “running it twice” situations
I think that part of the intent in running it twice is often to have the odds differ, reducing or increasing the likelihood of a draw hitting the second time based on whether it did or did not hit the first time around.

comment Is Small Ball Poker In Cash Games A Good Strategy?
"Are you advocating that big-ball style is preferable to small-ball style in tournament poker?" That's going to depend on the structure of the tournament, who your opponents are, and how likely you are to have your table break in the near future. In the early/middle stages of a $10k deep stacked tournament, small-ball makes a lot more sense than in the same stages of a $200 event with a shorter structure. And it may be worth noting that most online tournaments represent a relatively short structure with a high likelihood of table breakage.

And I completely agree that small-ball is not even possible as a strategy when you inevitably begin to become short-stacked in tournaments. That's the primary tenet of the second paragraph of my original answer.

I'm not comparing them in terms of other pots. Big pots are always going to be more important than small pots. I'm saying that, all other factors being equal, play in the cash format benefits more from winning lots of small pots than does play in the tournament format.
