In Response To: relationship between money game PR and match play PR? (Tenland)
Recently, MCG opined that money play PR should be slightly higher than match play PR. But he admitted he didn't have data, and he did not distinguish between long matches and short matches.
In this post, neilkaz implicitly opined the opposite, the argument being that money play doesn't involve score-based decisions and involves less opponent-based adjustment. He did not explicitly distinguish between long matches and short matches. In the same thread, Bob Koca opined that one's average PR should be lower in short matches than in long matches because of the greater proportion of dead cubes, leading to fewer cube errors, as well as races that get played out to the bitter end. Christian Munk-Christensen agreed, but it's not clear that he was talking about long-term averages as opposed to the probability of playing underneath a certain threshold in a single match.
In any case, it doesn't seem that there has been any systematic data analysis on the question, just anecdotal impressions. In an email conversation a few months ago, Henrik Bukkjaer said he was going to do some data analysis on various PR-related questions like this one, but I don't know how far his project got.
