Formula EV
Hello
Well, I wish I could explain the development of this formula that I can not understand it. This is the formula for EV: EV = FE * DM + (1FE) * [(Eq Pot * * 0.95) stack remaining] and this is already developed with an example: (This is where I do not understand) EV = 0.7 * 1.75 + 0.3 * [(25.39 * 0.3157 * 0.95) 12.07] = 1.225 to 1.3365 = 0.11 I have tried to develop in many ways but never goes well, even if I put all in a calcladora. Thank You regards

Well... I've no idea where you got this from but am curious as to what the FE & DM mean? I work out Expectation in a different way to this using likely hand ranges and the amount of times I win minus the amount of times I lose in that particular situation.

P.s There are plenty of good threads on here about EV. If you read some of them no doubt you will be able to work out EV without having a math degree !!

i dont get this part...
[(Eq Pot * * 0.95) stack remaining] is something left out here???? between the two ** is is pot equity x total pot x 0.95  stack remaining stack remaining is actually our bet (4bet shove) because it will only make sense in that scenario, that is why we have 1FE which is the part of the range we stackoff is 0.95 the rake part???

EV = (FE * DM) + (1  FE)[PE * (DM + S)]  (1  FE)[(1  PE) * S] where: FE  Fold Equity DM  Dead Money PE  Pot Equity S Shove Size You can transform this into: EV = (FE * DM) + (1  FE)[PE * Pot  S] where Pot = DM + S PE * Pot is your expected stack size so I guess multiplying it by 0.95 is equivalent to getting 5% of rake from the pot... I think...
