At least you didn't spend 4 hours chasing your losses this time.

Over the month I have run pretty well to be honest, I cant complain (I can and do in reality), I'm treading water at poker since the early part of the year.

Not sure if the games changed or my game changed.

That's what seems to happen to me as well - I go for looong periods of time at breakeven ... and then about once every two months there's a heater, which is very exciting! The breakeven, not so much ...

But there was that big downswing I had in June, where my graph went into complete freefall for a short bit, so now im thinking breakeven's maybe not the worst thing in the world. Maybe because the VPPs and FPPs keep coming in, to make it not so bad? Wish my winnings at the table were better though, for sure ...

I had the same thing the other day, but KK vs KK vs QQ. It's a pretty weird (and rare) spot to flop an overpair on a straight-less board and have zero equity.
Somehow, I just laughed. I doubt I'd be laughing at 50NL though. It would take a while to regain a stack. :/

Know nothing about PLO HI/LO but somehow took it down for a massive profit.
