Default Re: winning percentages of starting hands

And you can find that in the pokerroom EV stats page

if their stats are an average of their players data and you assume many players will misplay their hands, wouldn't the stats be skewed somewaht?

Yes, certainly. If you are winning player, your EVs will be higher than those listed. However, barring a large pokertracker database of your own hands, I still find it to be a helpful guideline.

And it will certainly be a better approximation of your acutal winrate than a pure hand equity enumeration (the kind you can get in pokerstove) will be. This is not to say those enumerations do not have their uses -- they certainly do -- only that estiamting winrates is not one of them.
