Correlation
Coefficient 

The
results of this program, run on June 17, 1974 at 1824,
and taking 2.94 seconds to execute, ire to me what
the unchanging speed of light through the ether must
have been to Michelson and Morley. For some reason,
which i can no longer recollect, i had already calculated
what, in statistics, is called the correlation coefficient
betien the point values of the card counting systems
and the payoff for the game itself. This is done by
dividing the sum of the products of the respective
values assigned to each suit and the payoffs for the
suit by the square root of the product of the sum
of squares of values for the card counting system
and sum of squares of the payoffs.

Although he Doesn't
Claim an Eidetic Memory, Poker Legend TJ 

Cloutier
knows the value of experience. "I might not remember
everybody's name," Cloutier says, "but if
I played with you five years ago, I remember exactly
how you played." With more than 50 major tournament
wins on his resume, even if Cloutier is bluffing on
this one, it isn't by much!
Do not forget to include in that book how you have
played, because of the "we project our values
onto others" concept. How you played tells others
a bit about how you think they play, and if you know
they have an impression of how you play, you can take
advantage of that. It won't help as much as your record
of what your opponents do because if they do something
once, they'll probably do it again. Even if they intentionally
try to vary their play, they will still probably tend
to take a certain approach slow playing big hands,
for examplemost of the time.
