Shorthand for "Positive expected value." Basically, a situation where you can reasonably expect the play to be profitable.

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
@amigal: I agree. I flat out said that I would remove the downvote if I could. I still would. That said, I still think over-betting the pot is pretty marginal. I'm not saying that because I would play it differently. I'm saying it because of what I believe the impact of an overbet like this would be (namely, causing him to fold a huge majority of the hands in his range that we beat).

comment Is just calling the big blind a poor strategy?
I do not think the author is referring to players in the big blind in this quote. I believe he is indeed referring to limping as opposed to raising.

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
I disagreed with that part of the answer, and hadn't had my coffee yet. I still disagree with that part of the answer, but I do agree with you that it's not worthy of a downvote. I need you to edit something to be able to remove the downvote though.

Raising to $60 into a $50 pot is pretty standard. $90 to $110 would be pretty far over the top.

comment Are seat re-assignments random in multi-table tournaments?
Yes, a player can definitely know. I don't recall ever playing a live tournament in which I did not know. It's often clearly stated, but it is not bad form to ask the tournament organizers which tables will break first.

As a side note, you certainly can analyze what microstakes players' behavior means. I founded Grinderschool.com around doing just that.

@amigal: What part of that answer requires any level of detailed analysis? I flat out say "Do this unless you know a specific condition is met." If you don't know whether or not that condition is met, then you do what I said to begin with. Where do you see anything that requires the type of evaluation you are complaining about?

@amigal: Nothing about my answer depends on your opponents properly valuing their hands - it just depends on you properly identifying their tendencies and adjusting for it.

You reference your stack being eaten up by the blinds and that leading you to shove all-in with a mediocre hand. Are you referring to tournaments?
