Default Re: Omaha 8 PL hand

Dear Carl,

TwoDimes is defining EV to be (win%)+ 1/2*(tie%).

I assume the EV means "expected value". One way that (win%)+ 1/2*(tie%) could be expected value is the following game. Three players walk up to a table with $1.00 in the center. They are given the hands 'kh qh 9h qd', 'ac js tc 5s', and 'kc 5h ks jc'. The cards 'ah th qs' are placed in the middle. Now the players agree to give the $1.00 to the best omaha hand after dealing 2 more cards. If there is a tie, the will split the $1.00 equally between the ties.

Does that answer your question?
