Event by event discriminants provide a fantastic method to discriminate between signal and background at the LHC. I will discuss some theoretical developments in event by event weighting techniques, in particular the extension of event by event weighting to NLO accuracy. As a specific example I will discuss Higgs searches in the rare decay to Z photon.
