That was the last hand of the match. In All in pots I ran 44,000 under par, bringing my 50-100 total to -180,000 under par since I took it on. All in EV only focuses on one aspect of luck, what happens when there are no decisions to be made. For example, if you go all in with 10-10 vs AK preflop and put in 10,000 before the flop, you rate to win about 57% of the time, so your expected value is 11,400. If you win, and profit 10,000, you are 8600 ahead of par. If you lose, you'd be 11,400 below par.


Lots of other factors can determine luck in a match, but the others are difficult to quantify. For example, flushes over flushes, set over set, AA vs KK preflop, etc. That doesn't even factor in how often the river card hits your opponent.

I've been playing poker long enough to recognize when I've been unlucky, or when I just played really bad. When you raise with AA on the button heads up, and your opponent happens to fold every time, that can be annoying too since they'll at least call 2/3rds of the time.

It's frustrating to run like that, but if you want to stay sane you have to just deal with it and move on. Sometimes that's easier said than done.
