    Your standard deviation, when playing a smaller stack, should be bigger and you can find that number in either HEM or PT. Once you have the number you can use then input it and find the corresponding graph.

    Was this video done some time ago? Or how on earth you get EV++ working. Its been on server error for like several months at least?

    #7: the site isn't working anymore, but there is/was a downloadable ev++ program. I have the installation kit. Add me as a friend so we can talk through PM, if you want it.

    It is kind of funny, when you say your not trying to scare us away from poker, with that variance calculation, as for me at least it has the exact opposite effect, I feel that I just have to put in more volume, while working on my game, and even if I do happen to not be winning mostly (as we all want) it might be due to variance.
