    small mistake at the variance simulation: 1bb/100 winrate with 18bb/100 SD means 1 bigbling/100, not 1 bigbet. :)

    I dont get it why "looseness" shouldnt effect variance. I dont really think that playing only when you are a 80:20 favorite has the same variance as playing only coinflip situations. You simply win almost every hand, so your deviation from your winrate is smaller than winning a hand and losing the next one.

    Looseness will affect variance to a degree but to nowhere near the same degree as aggression does

    Also what you are describing is the expected value of the players when they enter a hand which has no bearing on how much variance they will suffer. If they are a fire spewing maniac whenever they're in a pot they're going to suffer bigger swings than someone who's a timid lamb (i.e. win bigger pots, lose bigger pots). How much of a favourite they are to win the hand has no bearing on how far from teh medium they'll swing
