View Full Version : Understanding EV for Tourneys

01-21-2011, 10:45 PM
I'm pretty new with using HM and want to know how well im currently running. In the screenshot it says that i have lost -$15903233 yet my adjusted EV is +$363721.

Does that mean im running far below expectation in all-in pots??
Also is there a way to graph my tourney EV?

Thanks in advance

ChipEV for large MTTs is pretty useless.

If you're a good MTT player, you'll NOT be eliminated a lot in the early stages of the MTT... when the stacksizes are small.

You will be eliminated in the middle to late stages when the average stacksizes are large. Since you will mostly be eliminated losing either a coinflip, or actually having the best hand. This will result in your total cEV results. So it's normal you run below cEV if you're a good MTT player.
