      Hey guys

      Why do we always run under EV?In most of the graphs that I've seen, winnings line was way below EV line, no matter if it was cash/sng. Why is there always just a glimpse of running over EV and then a never ending run under EV? Isn't the best hand supposed to win more often?

      Don't get me wrong, i'm not whining or anything but i'm just trying to understand this. maybe i don't understand it properly.

      The reason you see more graphs where people run under EV is because they are way more likely to post a bellow EV graph and whine about it then posting a bragging graph how good they run.
