Question mvp murmur vs mitral rigurtation murmur?

Why mvp is different from the rest? In mvp, squatting and handgrip will improve or diminsh the murmur and valsalva and standing, which decreases venous return to the heart will worsen mvp?

This is opposite to rigurtation of mitral.

Any explanation for this guys?

Decrease in preload makes valves more lax and worsens the the MVP murmur.

While in MV regurg increased preload increases the volume that has to cross the incompetent valve hence more turbulence.
