I was playing a friendly home game with my roommates yesterday night and admittedly played through my first two buy-ins pretty horribly. Eventually, I built my stack back up to ~$50 (I was $100 in at...

Based on the fact that LA got better, Warriors got better (somehow), Rockets get healthier, Nuggets build around a young core -- I wouldn't be surprised if the Spurs missed the playoffs altogether.

I don't have access to TIA so can't speak to their materials but I agree that CA does make it easier to go through the material.
