      Two questions:
      1. Did I play this right?
      2. In HEM in my session analysis page, where the Hands are listed are the following stats for this hand (among others):
      Time        07/31/11 17:10:27
      Stakes      $0.1/0.25 NL
      Cards       Qs Qc 
      Flop        Ks Js 3d 
      Turn        4h 
      River       Td 
      $           -$12.19
      bbs         -48.76
      EV $ Diff   $13.06

      I have tried to find a sensible explanation for the last number "EV $ Diff", but I have had no luck. HEM's website has stuff on it, but I'm still not sure what it is trying to tell me.

      The best I've been able to do on my own is:
      1. If it is a positive number, you got sucked out on.
      2. If it is a negative number, you got a lucky break.

      Is that essentially correct?
      Is this an important number in evaluating hand play? If so, where can I get more info on it.

      Oh, yeah -- the hand:

      Hey Vorpal,

      Nice hand, well played. When we apply MSS we don't fold QQ after we've raised with it.

      As for the EV $ Diff...

      I presume you know what EV is?

      EV $ Diff is simply calculated by "EV - Winnings = EV $ Diff" and it tells you the difference between your real winnings and expected value of your play. Hope this clarifies it.

      Best regards,
