Introducing SM Pool!

It is playing Spin & Go format games in a group of poker enthusiasts/professionals with the common goal of reducing variation.

Anyone who plays Spin & Go or Spin & Go Flash can register to participate. The room or stakes played is irrelevant for confirmation.

The Pool period is a month, starting and ending on the first to last day of the month (00:00 GMT+2) for all poker rooms. The Pool operates in three main phases:

  1. All pool members submit data for the previous period on days 1-3 of the month.
  2. After the data is received, on days 4-6 of the month, the calculations take place, after which the overall results of the Pool are confirmed and announced to the participants.
  3. Following the publication of the Pool totals, payments are made to the players’ designated accounts on 6-9 days of the month.

The following data is used to validate the results:

  • Pokerstars room – HH and audit,
  • Winamax room – HH,
  • GG Netowrk kambaryje – HyperTracker graphs and Loom video of them.
  • Partypoker – only the report sent by the room.

*Partypoker room report is delayed by one month. Therefore, if your games in the Pool are played in e.g. October, the results are moved to November.

SM Pool results are calculated using the following formula:
Player’s PoolEV adjusted = Player’s Total BIs x Pool swing roi + Player’s Pool EV

*Player’s Total BIs: the total amount for which the player has bought into tournaments (number of games x tournament buy-in).

*Pool swing roi: (Total of whole Pool’s profit – Total of whole Pool’s EV) / Total amount of buy-ins of all Pool players.

*Player’s PoolEV adjusted: player’s true Pool EV earnings plus Pool swing.


The portion that a player has to transfer or receive:
Player’s PoolEV adjusted – Player’s Pool profit

*Rakeback is not calculated in Pool results and only EV and winnings are taken into account.


SM Pool results 24 hours after submission WILL NOT BE RECALCULATED. It is the player’s responsibility to verify that the calculations submitted are correct. If the calculations are disagreed with, it must be reported within 24 hours after the results are submitted.

The winnings distribution takes place after the results have been submitted. Players have 72 hours to make transfers and settle their accounts with each other. Transfers must be made to the players’ designated accounts.
*It is your personal responsibility to specify the correct account


If the Pool EV $ adjusted is greater than the Total Profit $, then a transfer will be made which will bring the winnings in line with the Pool EV $ adjusted.

If Pool EV $ adjusted is less than Total Profit $, then an amount of money will need to be transferred to bring the winnings in line with Pool EV $ adjusted.


The sign near your number in the Pool chart indicates whether the money should be sent (-) or received (+).


Each player is responsible for his own transactions. It will be up to the participants to agree on the sending and receiving of money. If a player has not sent a transaction that is due to be sent within 72h of the final results being submitted, then penalties apply. 

*In the event of force majeure (freezing of an account or wallet), the player must inform SM Pool via the DC channel as soon as possible. Such situations are assessed on an individual basis.

You can register for the Pool ANYTIME and join as soon as you receive our confirmation. After confirmation, you will be added to the Pool list from the next day. A monthly fee will be charged.

All participants have access to the overall Pool results in the stable system. Pool data can only be viewed by participants in that period. 

*Total Pool results (Total Pool Buyins, number of players, swing, etc.) will be displayed publicly and may be used for marketing purposes.

A penalty is imposed if the transaction is not completed on time, i.e. 72 hours or more after the results are announced. For each day of delay, the sender will be charged 1% of the amount of the transaction. The total amount of the penalty is received by the initial transaction’s receiver.

All pool participants must submit their poker room HHs, which are checked and compared to the results provided in the report. If the results are different and corrections are needed, the differences are transferred to the next month’s Pool results.

If a player’s results differ from the HH, once the Pool period has ended and the correct transactions have been recalculated, they are transferred to the next Pool period, i.e. the recalculated transaction difference is added to the player’s next month’s transaction amount. The total amount of the correction is added to the Pool’s total winnings (column correction), which can reduce or increase the Pool’s total fluctuation.  

Adjustments include losses due to players’ fault and their reimbursement.

The HH must be submitted for a monthly period starting and ending on the first to last day of the month (00:00 GMT+2) for all poker rooms.
