Then your cEV for each hand is added up to give you a total cEV for the game.

I have PT4 and a friend who is a full time grinder of Spins so he helps me out every now and then. He say's you should concentrate on EV ROI stat and not worry about ROI: play at least 3k games to see a clearer win rate. Elaborate on the EV ROI?
 04-08-2016, 09:41 PM #154 nateofclubs journeyman   Join Date: Mar 2013 Location: Ottawa Posts: 244 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread EV ROI is just a function of cEV; the higher your cEV the higher your EV ROI. There is a one to one correspondance between these two variables at any one buy in, so you can use either to give an approximation of how well you're playing. It is meant to estimate your true ROI by neutralizing the luck factors as much as possible; it neutralizes the luck factor regarding the card distributions/showdowns by using cEV as described above, and it neutralizes the luck factor regarding the spin multiplier by treating every game as though it's for the same prizepool size (which is 3buyins - 3buyin fees, the avg prizepool size). There is no skill in the spinning aspect of the game, which is why we adjust the prizepool size like this (a 6x for example should not carry more weight than a 2x as far as skill is concerned, since there was no skill in spinning the bigger multiplier).
 04-09-2016, 07:03 PM #155 Limitbreak enthusiast   Join Date: Sep 2014 Posts: 71 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread That makes sense nateofclubs. Another question if you will, is it standard in spins to have a higher red line than blue line since we are usually capitalizing on fold equity? Here a graph of my results for \$7. All comments and suggestions welcome. http://imgur.com/SxRDYms
 04-09-2016, 10:54 PM #156 nateofclubs journeyman   Join Date: Mar 2013 Location: Ottawa Posts: 244 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread I'm not sure what other players' graphs look like, but I'm going to guess no this is not standard. In any case, how steep your red line is is dependent on your style and is not really the determining factor of how well you're playing. If you're an aggro player who bets/raises a lot to steal/take down pots then this will increase your red curve but it will be at the expense of your blue curve. If you're a trappy player then you will win more pots at showdown that the aggro player might have otherwise won without showdown, so you'll have a lower red curve. At the end of the day, the curve that matters (from a performance/skill point of view) is the brown one; the red one is just an intermediate factor that affects the brown one. Your red one doesn't even have to be positive for you to be doing well. For example over the last 3100 games I've played my cEV (the brown one) is 75/game even though my red one is -12/game. (I'm happy when it's 0/game.)

To calculate SpinEVROI you need custom stats, which HM2 does not have. You can use HM2 ChipEV and calculate SpinEVROI manually, if you really want to.
 05-06-2016, 01:26 PM #159 StructureK journeyman   Join Date: Sep 2007 Posts: 315 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread Thanks for the reply Dave. Are there links or guides to help create or pre download those custom stats? Also is there a more in depth explanation as to what exactly they interpret or how to utilize them? (Other than just my expected value of them)

How to enter it in PT4, do Configure -> Statistics and enter that in a new stat. I don't know link to documentation off hand, but read some PT4 documentation it isn't terribly troublesome to learn the basics.

Over time it takes more and more to make you tilt, your focus will improve etc.
 05-12-2016, 04:39 AM #166 necse6alex newbie   Join Date: Feb 2016 Posts: 20 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread Actually this is the only thing that makes me tilt is the game or either i just hate losing in real-life i don't get angry at all at nothing really calm guy(and yeah i do abit of kick-boxing and i know how to controll myself) but this game idk the variance is so fkng s.hit i hate it , not so angry on the players as they are the main income for alot u guys here, i think i need a acouple oh thousands games to get used to this and work on my mindset.When i get tilted it doesn't take me alot of time to get back at it but is the same when i start playing again 2-3 badbeats and im back at it .
 05-14-2016, 04:58 AM #167 necse6alex newbie   Join Date: Feb 2016 Posts: 20 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread Hey guys i have a question, so for example i have medium strength poket pairs or good broadways and i play vs a weak player bvb every time i raise him he calls very wide and he almost every time he cb on the flop if i check behind what is the most profitable way to play them for example is it profitable to shove 77 in sb 20+ versus them i don't find any other way to play, i would like to reduce my variance as more as i can but yeah if someone can give me some knowledge it will be grandly appreciated.

 05-17-2016, 09:39 AM #170 RedHot old hand     Join Date: Feb 2009 Location: Roaming Posts: 1,729 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread Maybe its head's up, so he calls our raise preflop and then on the flop he bets out? Or.....?
 05-17-2016, 02:46 PM #171 necse6alex newbie   Join Date: Feb 2016 Posts: 20 Re: Spin and Go Beginners Thread No for example im in sb and bb is a total fish i have 66 or 77(doesn't mater) , im 20 bb deep and if i raise he calls almost 90% of his range then the flops come A high flop or something or a wet flop i can't really try to cb on the flop i need to think twice if it's okay to cb, but the main question was that if it was profitable for me to shove poket pairs in them, and i think this is the best obtion for me to just shove in them rather than just raise pre and fold on the flop or turn.

It will be profitable to shove any pocket pair long term but the question is if it is the most profitable option. If villain is playing 90% of hands I'm sure you can see that a lot of the time on an ace high flop they won't have an ace. So if they are such weak players, maybe its better to play post-flop against them with a strong hand like 77? You will also improve your game by playing hands post flop and in time not feel so uncomfortable in these spots.

The wider btn is mring the more you want to call or shove them. If they have 40%+ mr and won't call a 3bs with A7o, A5s and stuff like that 3b shoving is really good. Otherwise flatting does pretty well. Vs nitty openers I'd fold A6o and flat A7/A8.
