1. ## Winnings and \$ICM Diff in tourneys

Sometimes \$ICM Diff negative value is greater than winnings and that's illogical. the maximum \$ICM Diff negative value should be equal to winnings.

TOURNEY EV
In addition: the \$EV Won can be confusing when it's negative and a larger number than the actual buyin, or positive and a larger number than the actual first price money.
You have some extreme situations (often in Double or Nothing and in SUPER TURBO SNGs)
Extreme examples:
\$169 buyin SUPER TURBO, \$Won = \$720 (1th place)---> \$EV Won = -\$196 (a negative value, that is bigger than the actual buyin)
\$5.20 buyin DoN, \$Won = \$10---> \$EV Won = \$11.35 (more than you can actually win)
But allowing these values -outside of this range- will result in more accurate long term results.

So EV becomes quite a meaningless number if you focus on one game , but the more you play, the more accurate it gives a representation of your overall "luck".
