Janowski's Formulas

Janowski's Formulas
A collection of formulas devised by Rick Janowski for estimating cubeful equity from cubeless equity. The basic formula for cubeful equity (between take points) is:
    CF = CL*(1 - x) + CE*x
where CF is cubeful equity, CL is cubeless equity, CE is cubeful equity assuming all doubles are perfectly efficient, and x is a number between 0 and 1 that measures the cube efficiency. Typical values for x range from 0.55 to 0.8.   See also: Janowski's Takepoint Formula.
