Hi,

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum not sure where best to ask this, but could I get some assistance breaking down the below formula?

Sorry if its not expressed mathematically correctly but this is how the poker site decided to express it, (not myself!)

1000(∑(profit/big blind/³√(∑hands played)

I can provide the number of hands I have played and big blind and profit if it helps to break it down. Thanks - pls bare in mind I am a simpleton! Thanks

Did the poker site itself have the two extra left parentheses? Also I don't know what the / / symbol means. Finally, if "hands played" is just the number of hands you have played, what does " $\Sigma$" mean. I would have interpreted it as a sum but with just a single number, that makes no sense.

yep the poker site itself has the two extra left parentheses!! Very confusing... I would like to speak to the person who decided to express this mathematical feat purely because they don't appear to believe in logical rules! What a paradox!
