      At first I thought it might be variance, but I have later realized that every single freaking time I have my money in the middle with over 80%, I lose. Every time without fail, I get sucked out on the turn or river for massive amounts.

      Now, this is pretty significant as I only play NL25, NL50 and a couple NL100. 2.000$ behind EV over 130k hands is a pretty ridiculous amount. Does anyone have any matching results or am I really the unluckiest person alive?

      I've always thought lucky people have been a load of bullshit, but it seems that some people just win no matter where they put their money in. Opinions?

      I'd post my graphs, but can't get filefront working so..

      Its mixed € and $ - with the really bad results being in €

      So essentially also 2k$ under EV - only 30k hands though :o

      i am sorry i actually don't even get how the All-in EV is calculated but how can it be that everyone is running below All-in EV... are there any players here who run above that line? would be interesting to see that (at least once)

      Let's say you got all in with AA vs 10 10

      Your chance of winning is 80%, and the pot includes 10$ from each player, + 0.25 and 0.50 in the blinds.

      Your EV will therefore be 80% of 20.75$ (Minus rake but screw that for now)

      The average result would be 16.6$, meaning you earn 6.6$.

      Should you lose this hand however, you will be earning -10$, leaving you 16.6$ behind EV.

      Should you win it you will be running 4.15$ above EV.

      Some software like for example poker tracker however don't track EV for all streets, so lets say you raise it up with aces to 2$, and a guy with Q3 suited calls leaving 0.10 cents behind and flops a flush, poker tracker will interpret this as EV = close to zero, rather than taking the preflop odds of winning for the 2$ and then close to 0% on the remaining 10 cents. So take caution when reading these EV graphs.

      Yes, comparing to these graphs my lost 11 in-a-row sessions and -$210 seem like kid's play. But I may still improve :(

      Seriously, poker is a quite a lottery. If you're unlucky - that's it.
