Nice one. PLO and Hi/Lo are my personal favourites when its come to choose methods killing my bankroll (or double it). It has high variance, huge swings during sessions and more skill/good judgement oriented than NLHE in some ways.
The vampire morning is just as familiar as the weekly cleaning days - Im hating both with passion.

Cheers you looks like a baller do you have so much spare cash that you can afford to deposit when you like? I would love to be you and be good financially , guess that is why i am working so I can afford to gamble in my free time.
Anyway nicely done calling quit when you saw that the other guy did not give you any edge. Run to fight another day is my motto now. Instead of going crazy and losing money.

Swingy as a motherfucker!!! Never tried PLO probably should have years ago when holdem became stale.
That's one heck of a comeback to make bank after being down that much - just shows with the right mugs at the table it can be a highly profitable game. Something I need to work on is to be more patient, waiting for donks etc to roll up then pressure them.
When I play PLO, I get either extremely happy or extremely angry, you can calculate your odds much harder than in a normal NLHE game. Even if you hold the nuts on the flop/turn, your opponent can have awful lot of outs to a better hand. Sick game!

One don't always have the same good old opponents at the tables, but at least you got it once, who knows if you have the luck to get it another time? I guess you recorded his nick, so you can always look for him on your next session

Finally an blog post about poker and only about poker
You had a sick session there for sure, i mean i never play that much since i hate to have this crazy swings that are innevitable on such long sessions and especially on PLO. My advice would be to continue to play and make more blog entries about it
