  • Results graph in HM2

    As I understand, that line going down means you are in trouble, especially if at the same time the green line goes up.

    Basically, it shows if you were "lucky" or not, right?

    On the pic attached the sample of hands is not that big to make a grounded conclusion, but still maybe you can tell me what it all means.

    Also, why is the blue showdown line higher than the green one? And should the red one go so low?

    Don't put too much weight behind all in EV unless all you play is heads up, it's not an accurate representation of expected value.

    A lot of people have negative red lines it's pretty normal, some TAGs can keep their redline slightly in profit or breakeven over a large sample but it's not worth worrying about just focus on your hourly rate and keep that green line moving up. Your non showdown loss is also the reason why your showdown winnings are higher than your net profit, but again it's not worth worrying about.

      Thank you, but I didn't get the connection of non SD loss and SD winnings (red and blue). Could you be more specific about those please?

        Subtract your non showdown losses from your showdown winnings and thats your green line.

          Looks like a standard graph for a winning player. Very few players (generally LAGs) have redlines above zero, especially in full ring games at the lowest stakes. You can crush microstakes by just playing a solid ABC game, where your profit comes from making hands and valuebetting them, with fish paying you off on the river.
          As long as your showdown winnings (blue) are more positive than non-showdown (red) are negative, you're making money.
          The main reason for the negative redline is the blinds you have to pay while folding pre-flop about 80% of the time. (You obviously can't win at showdown if you fold pre-flop).
