Hi,
M is a value that is based on sum of all the chips before anyone acts in the pot or this is the sum of BB+SB+antes. The idea is that you must calculate your stack to this value M since every round you will be blinded with exactly this much of chips.
You can read more about this in Dan Harrinton's books. At least this was where i found about this value M.

There is also a 'Q' which is your stack compared to the average stack (I'm not sure how useful this is?)

I think Q is mostly a general indicator of where you stand, if Q is less than 0.5 for example then you know you might need to double up soon... but M is the "strong force" and should therefore always be "obeyed" more than Q.
