re: Poker & M Calculator
Yeah, I got tired of opening up calc.exe all the time, so I just tossed this together.
I think I'll take it a bit further sometime and actually read from hand histories.
Also, an iPhone
poker app might be cool. Put something like this in there, along with a pokerstove-esque equity calculator.
All I'm doing to calculate M is the normal formula:
M = Chips / (SB + BB + Ante*players)
Then for "effective M",
EM = M * (Players / 10).
I think it helped me today with my decision making a bit. Came in 4th in a 180man.
EDIT2: Also, ignore all that source in that screenshot, lol. A lot of wrong stuff in there. (EM color being changed based on the value of 'M', not 'EM', variable declarations, etc...
