Markov Chains and hashcat.hcstat File
i believe rockyou was used for the default hcstat file.

the threshold parameter determines how "deep" the algorithm will go into each markov table; e.g. a threshold of 30 means up to 30 chars are added to the markov table.

the default parameter is 0, which means no keyspace limiting is performed and you end up with an ordered brute force.

nothing preventing you from manually generating a new hcstat file from your pot file between passes.
