# Elephant calculations seems wrong...

After having played 468 hands on William Hill in the NL \$0,01 / \$0,02 limit Elephant tells me I have earned \$0,76 and 10 hands in the FL \$0,02 / \$0,04 where I have earned \$-0,05 (negative value). I have also played 2 SnG's where I placed 1 st in one and last in the other and since the one I lost had a larger buy-in my total earnings from SnG's is \$-0,44 (negative value).

I started with a capital of \$60 on WH and that means it should now be at \$60,27 if i'm not mistaken (\$60 + \$0,76 - \$0,05 - \$0,44 = \$60,27). The weird part is that my actual capital on WH as of now is at \$60,15.

Any idea of what I could be missing that makes it seems like I lack \$0,12? I really think Elephant is doing it's calculations correctly so i'm still fairly hopeful it's just somehing i'm missing out on.

EDIT: Problem solved, see post #3!

After having spent some time going through the history on WH (William Hill) it seems I have found something very odd...

I noticed that WH history and Elephant differed from each other on 2011-09-02 because when watching WH history it said I sat down at 3 tables total and at two of those I brought \$2 and cashed out \$1,97 and at the third table I also brought \$2 but cashed out \$1,85. This tells me that I lost 0,03 + 0,03 + 0,15 = \$0,21 during this day but Elephant tells me I only lost \$0,09. This is where it gets really interesting...

If I look more closely on WH history I can choose the table where I brought \$2 and cashed out \$1,85 and look through each hand that I played (monitored by WH history). I can easily see that I did not actually play any cards at all durings this table and the only time I lost money was during blinds. The fact is I lost a total of \$0,03 in blinds at this table before I cashed out, so why did I only have \$1,85 when I left the table (WH history says I cashed out \$1,85 at this third table as I mentioned but at the same time if I look at each hand that I played at this table WH history tells me I only lost \$0,03 and I brought \$2 to start with)... It certainly seems odd.

The fact that Elephant also tells me that my total earnings on 2011-09-02 where \$-0,09 (negative value) seems correct (since I played 3 tables and lost \$0,03 on each) AND the difference between what Elephant says and the loss on WH history is exactly \$0,12 meaning since I currently have \$60,15 and adding this difference gives me \$60,27 (which is what Elephant total earnings tells me I should have) it really, truly seems that William Hill robs me of \$0,12 dollars during this single table.

Can this be true?

Problem solved!

For some reason there was a specific hand at this table session missing where I actually bet \$0,12 but choose to fold after the flop is revealed.

There is a "Update local information"-button on William Hill when browsing a specific table session that you have played and when I pressed this, the mentioned hand appeared and Elephant successfully imported this so my total earnings is now correct. Even though it would have been better that I would have been correct in that my capital should have been \$60,27 i'm still glad that Elephant and WH history is correct
