  1. question, these numbers are for ALL the games, right? multi entry and 50/50 style? Is there any way to tell the effect on the 50/50 and multiplier games? my guess is that the top % are even more widely played in the 50/50 games, skewing these numbers higher for those games (i.e. antonio brown may be faded in contests, but more heavily played in cash games)…is that sound logic?

    • These numbers were taken from a large field GPP. For cash games you can expect to see the more popular plays ownership level at least twice as high. Let me know if that helped answer your question or if I am understanding the question wrong.
