Is this a good guide for EV?

It is an interesting place.

From memory A2o is one of the worst hands there!!!

This tells us something about how people play A2 on average, more than the merits of the hand itself.

That is interesting(a2 comment). A2 off is still neg. EV heads up from the small blind.

If you go here you can change the table limits and the # of players. https://www.pokerroom.com/evstats/

I'm thinking about printing all 9(2-10 players per table) and playing only positive EV hands online or better yet +.10 and above, I'll tighten up alittle.

Hokey statistics (?) as in not a large enough sampling?

How do we explain the following (from the link Nepa provided, thanks for the link, btw):

JTs from the button in a 10 handed game...

$1/2 0.12
$2/4 0.12
$3/6 0.99
$5/10 -0.35
$10/20 0.23

JTs *should* be positive EV... why such a huge surge in EV for 3/6 and such a loss at 5/10? Why should JTs from the button then win at twice the rate that it does in 1/2 and 2/4? Any ideas?

Not meant to say it's a bad link, etc... just wanted to hear ideas about why we'd see something like this.

Thanks for any replies.

They started with hand #6,000,000(anyone know what hand # pokerroom.com is at?). Some of the samples may be small when you go down to different stakes.

Or ppl. are playing J 10 suited totally wrong from the button in 5-10 games. Any other ideas?
