Hello, can some of Hold'em Manager users on BRM explain to me what the hell is "EV $ Diff" in HEM? It's in the hands stats and I don't know why it shows -$0.75 on the hand where I've had KK, opponent made 3BB bet with 88, I've re-raised 4 times his bet, he went all in and it was instant call from me. Of course I won this hand, but I'm wondering what means this EV $ Diff, because normal EV just can't be minus with pf AI with KK!

if you're referring to the difference in ALLIN EV and ALLIN actual then it's simple.
Let's say you have KK vs 55 (you have KK) it's allin pre for $50 each
you're roughly 80% favourite to win.
The pot is now $100 and you're EV is $80 however since you win the pot there is actually a difference of -$20 meaning you're up $20 more for that hand than your Expected value. It will even out because of the 1/5 times you're KK loses to the 55.
