PLO can be a brutal game regarding the swings involved and it can drive players to the point of feeling like the game is unfair or unbeatable. You have to keep in mind that in PLO the equities often run much closer to 60/40 when you are ahead and that is not to say that you don't ever get it in much better than 60%, but the equites just generally run closer together. In the long run you may not win as frequently due to that, but you likely will win large pots more often than you will in NLHE, which can result in a much more profit! This is equally true for when you are running hot; swings will go both way in this game, so keep in mind the long game and just focus on making the right plays.
