Indeed, but with little (beta) or no (the actual game) empirical data, the question is if an approximation as such will be of any value. While I did study probability theory and statistics during my time in college as a computer science student, it is my old friend who studied as Master of economics that I usually would leave that question too.With this in mind the discussion should end regarding the topic of "is it worth it?" But rather What is the highest consistent profit a person can produce / time played? This focuses the discussion toward a more quantitative discourse. If these forums are to produce helpful and meaningful information we must do our best to stay away from conjecture and simplistic argumentative statements.
