      I haven't played poker is over 3 months and decided to start while on break. So far it is a disaster and I am currently in the middle of my most damaging downswing to date.



      The reason why I post this is to get some information on EV. I have always wondered what the chance is of enduring a run of bad luck for a month or even a year. What is the chance of deviating 2%/5% from the statistical norm over a period of, say, 100,000 hands.

      Logically, it seems that it would be <1%. Does anybody know?
