One will display your winnings in terms of BigBets or BigBlinds I am not sure which one because I use holdem manager. The other one will show your results in terms of Dollars.

Hey THeGaME23,

What KidPokersKid said was correct.

For example,
If you are playing NL10, 1 bigblind (bb) would be 10c.
If you are playing NL10, 1 bigbet (BB) would be 20c.
And well dollars (\$) are just \$1.00.

Regards,

Kyle.

Sorry, But on some european sites; the result in BB = ShortHand for Baby, so if you have won 2 BBs then that = two babies! Congrats..

The Dollars, again, are just \$\$

So BB is just more exact?

Both are the exact same;

At FL \$2/4

1BB = \$4, and \$4 = 1 BB..

It's just a different way of looking what you won, i don't play FL but i think you average goal is xBBs per/100hands - im not sure what the actual goal should be; and example would be - 10BBs/100hands?

That'd be, \$40 per 100hands, (that seems a bit much, as i said, i don't play it but thats an example) People look @ they're winnings in BBs or \$ - both are the same, just different ways of saying it!

BB is used more in FL and I think Dollars are used more in NL... at least thats how I usually view it.

I don't understand what you mean by more exact?

Here are some links to our glossary that might explain it a bit more for you.

BB = Big Bet
bb = big blind
SB = small blind

\$ = Dollar.

By more exact I mean since I play NL 10, it would be recording in .10 increments instead of \$1 increments.

If your looking at a bb (Big Blind) graph or bb/100 winrate, yes.

Thanks.

One more question,with elephant can you see a EV graph line? Is that in the final version or only PT3 or HEM or whatever?

by measing your win rate in bb, you can compare your win rate at different limits... for example:

if i'm running at 10bb/100 playing NL10, i'm winning 10x 0.10c every 100 hands... so \$1/100...

if i was running at 10bb/100 playing NL25, i'm winning 10x 0.25c every 100 hands... so \$2.50/100...

however, if i just did a direct money comparison, you would think i was winning more at nl25... however the comparison in bb/100 is more accurate

a better example might be this... if i run at 10bb/100 at NL10, and 3bb/100 at NL50, even tho i'm making more money at NL50 (\$1.50/100 opposed to \$1/100) really i'm barely winning and would want to evaluate my game and work out why my win rate has dropped so much.
