I can't find any research or public information on this topic.
Edit: It was requested that I clarify the specifics of my request (e.g. the number of players and rule specifics). Rather than pigeon-hole people into a specific category (e.g. 3 players and tournament rules) I prefer to leave it open-ended, so that any and all relevant information will be provided.
Edit edit: For the sake of simplicity, let's say that we are playing with 4 players and tournament rules.
