So i am trying out HM to see if i buy it when HM2 comes out, but i cant understand what is the "EV \$ DIFF" column should be.

Ok this is the hand in question:

Grabbed by Holdem Manager
NL Holdem \$0.04(BB) Replayer
SB (\$0.56)
BB (\$2.24)
Hero (\$5.02)
UTG+1 (\$3.37)
CO (\$2.91)
BTN (\$3.09)

Dealt to Hero Q Q

Hero raises to \$0.16, UTG+1 calls \$0.16, CO calls \$0.16, fold, SB calls \$0.14, BB calls \$0.12

FLOP (\$0.80) 3 8 3

SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets \$0.80, UTG+1 calls \$0.80, CO folds, SB folds, BB folds

TURN (\$2.40) 3 8 3 8

Hero bets \$2.48, UTG+1 calls \$2.41 (AI)

RIVER (\$7.22) 3 8 3 8 7

Hero shows Q Q
(Pre 66%, Flop 56.3%, Turn 72.7%)

UTG+1 shows A Q
(Pre 34%, Flop 43.7%, Turn 27.3%)

Hero wins \$6.50
So my report says i won \$3.13 but my "EV \$ Diff" is -\$1.77.
Ok, i can state the obvious. Though im only wining 72.7% of the time, some of the times i should lose money. But i should lose \$1.77 in the long run? Can some one explain me why?

If i go to calculate \$3.13 * 72.7% = \$2.27 - So should not my EV \$ diff be -\$0.85? What am i missing here?

EV diff is not the EV. Its the difference between EV and your winnings/losses for the current hand.

The total pot is 6.50\$ and your equity is 72.7% = 4.73\$
In this hand you win 6.50\$ => 4.73 - 6.50 = -1.77\$ is the EV diff.

If you would have lost the hand your EV diff would be 4.73+6.50

Thanks for the support. I must say HM is looking very good so far.
