# Graph of single-hand outcomes

I am looking for a graph of some +EV poker player that plots the different outcomes of each hand played in a NLH-cashgame, such that the x axes is the outcome (for example measured in dollars or big blinds) and the y axes the number of hands that had this certain outcome.

For example: Suppose you played 5 hands in a session, where in 3 of them you did neither lose nor win any money, in 1 hand you won 5 dollars and in one you lost 3 dollars. Then the value of the graphic at -3 would be 1, at 0 it would be 3, at 5 it would be 1, and elsewhere the function would be 0. I am looking for such a graphic of some good poker player over at least 1000 hands.

I want to highlight the fact that it is reasonable to use a normal distribution to approximate the outcome of each hand and can therefore be used to calculate the risk of ruin. Anyone has an idea where I can find such a graph?

I am grateful for any advice!

• Not see how distribution of hand pot size is valuable for bankroll. What matter is the net over a period of time. If you are down \$1000 over the last 100 hands you need a bankroll to support it. The size of those pots is not a factor. – paparazzo Jun 14 '17 at 16:32
• Pokertracker supports such graphs. It is expensive though. I will look around tomorrow for a free alternative. Also. X and Y axes should be swapped. The general rule is: the interesting factor should be displayed on the y-axes. – Raymond Timmermans Jun 15 '17 at 21:09
• Thank you for your time! Let me know if you find anything helpful! – Babypopo Jun 18 '17 at 11:30
• Don't agree about swapping the axes FWIW @RaymondTimmermans - in the example given, the x-axis is basically a categorisation and the y-axis is quantity of records which fall into that categorisation. It's essentially a histogram and I for one would definitely expect the axes to be as the OP described them. – 3N1GM4 Jan 18 '18 at 12:40
