Ever heard of this?, it is by master Donald Knuth.

This is the reason why lots of EA show amazing performance but became under dogs in Championship and real life.

Any comments are welcome.

Just because a ea wins a championship doesnt mean its the perfect money maker. This is because championships run for a very short time of 1-3 months. If they were to run for 2 years the scenery would have been very different. Better something that makes 30% a year forever than something that makes 1000% one year and loses 1000% the next. Ask yourself if a ea multiplies an account ten times in just a month why isnt the creator himself a billionare yet?

The goal of every championship participant is to win not to earn money. That is why many of them use increased lots which they never use in real trading.
