I read an interesting article about how players who play in sharper styles in tournaments are more likely to come in the prize list. But before adopting a similarly Italianated style of trading, one has to assume that the same style also increases the odds of finishing last. And we know what that can mean.

All the same, with just a few prizes for many players, it’s at least clear what I have to do with my chess hat on. And it’s also clear why risk averse players such as Petrosian were more successful in 2 player matches than tournaments.
