$100+$20 poker tournaments at casinos are not profitable in the long run for the players. It's really $95(prize pool)+$25(casino). 21% of the buy-in money is taken from the prize pool. Since you paid $120 to play, but only $95 is part of the prize pool, you have to win $25 to get back to even. So, you need a 26% return to win $0. And so does everyone else in the tournament. Obviously, that's not possible! -- 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐲 𝐒𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐥𝐞 𝐓𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐓𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 (𝐒𝐓𝐓𝐬), 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐧𝐨 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐬, 𝐢𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐠𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐬.
