comment Quantifying the amount of luck required to win a tournament
You are supposing here that skill is constant or evolving slowly. In my opinion this is hardly a good hypothesis. I don't knwo about skill but I think there is at least a "focus" factor. I know that if I burst just before the bubble in a tournament, I will loose 2 or 3 tournaments if I continue to play. It's an extreme exemple, but i don't think averaging can reflects my capacity to win a given tournament as they are not independant.

comment Mathematical Derivation of the Chen Formula
>> 98o=5 points 76s=6 where clearly 98o is about 59% ahead? To compare 2 hands, looking at how they perform against each others is a silly thing. You have to compare how they perform against every other hands (or at least a parts of others hands). A 7 or a 9 as your highest card won't make any difference against an ace, but the fact your hand is suited will.
