Coming in the next update: Tournament All-in EV Chart using Big Blinds

A long-standing issue in Poker Copilot is that the All-in EV Chart is not very useful for tournaments. Using chips instead of big blinds as the y-axis distorts the chart. Unless you win a tournament, you’ll always incur during the tournament a positive EV diff of about 1500 tournament chips – assuming that each player starts with 1500 chips. If you come second in a 10,000 person tournament, you’ll normally win a lot of money. But your EV diff will still show +1500 tournament chips.

By using big blinds as the y-axis, the numbers are somewhat normalised. I still don’t think the numbers are perfect, but I can’t quite work out why.
