What is Sklansky Bucks in Poker?

A calculation of expected value/theoretical win.

For example, let’s say you’re all-in preflop with AA against KK, and the pot is $100. AA is an 80 percent mathematical favorite to win against KK, so in this scenario the expected value/Sklansky Bucks value of this play is $80 ($100 x .80).
