Harrington's Q, named for author and poker player Dan Harrington and introduced in his second book "Harrington on Hold'em" is the ratio of a player's stack to the average stack in a tournament.

Q = player's stack : Average Stack

The Q is an indicator for a player's relative position in the field of all payers. Harrington describes it as a "weak force" whereas magriel's M is a "strong force", since it is mostly only meaningful in tournaments like satellites and qualifiers where all the remaining players get the same prize.
