I don't think I've ever seen EPV on the forums, I've seen +EV and -EV (Positive Expected Value and Negative Expected Value).

This certainly makes sense. I saw it in this post and wasn't sure what it meant?

My experience with these sort of bids at Pairs over a number of years is that Vulnerability is critical. With 5-4 they are +EPV Non-vulnerable & -EPV Vulnerable.

This guy doesn't post much, so maybe he hasn't seen the question yet.

ah yes, with my standard translations:
"glp" = "Gulp!" aka "where's the hand you held in the bidding?"
"typ" = "typical!" aka "I bid like a master, and partner drops me in the third-rate contract, *again*."
I like the gto, hl - except that it has to apply to CHO as well.
