EPT10 Sanremo: The high roads and the low roads to the final table

Three players are left in Sanremo, including Jordan Westmorland, the tournament chip leader for the past couple of days, and Victoria Coren Mitchell, who has been doing most of her best work with a short stack.

Jordan Westmorland: Taking the high road

Victoria Coren Mitchell: Navigating the low road with the short stack

We took a look this afternoon at each of the last eight's journey to the final table, plotting their stacks' increase day by day. By necessity, you're going to start small (30,000) and end significantly bigger (the average at the start of the day was 2m approx), but there's plenty of scope for variation in between.

Some take the high road and some take the low road. Who's the say that one is better than the other?

Here's the line-graph of how they made it this week, and all the raw data is below. (Click to enlarge the graph.)
