    Actually there is not as much variance in the game as people think, like I wrote in my article. in all forms of poker variance is a function of the game's standard deviation + your winrate. Because the player pool in PLO is so full of fish, the win-rate of a really good player will be so HUGE that it will cancel out variance. In NLHE standard deviation is about 70, while in PLO it is 95, so about 1.4times bigger. But then in NLHE my win-rate is about 5-6 bb/100, and in PLO it is 12-18bb/100, so 2-3 times bigger, which means less variance in the LONG RUN then in NL :)

    The only annoying thing about PLO is short term variance, so it is much easier to run bad for 10-15K hands and feel bad about yourself and tilt, but try to play 50K hands and see the difference. Once variance starts evening out you will be winning every pot and will be sitting on tables with 700-800BB, and life will feel good and this game will be no longer shit :p

    Maybe you should try a sweat session with me :), if you want to check if you are playing optimal strategy. From your hands I see some really good play, but also some pretty big mistakes from time to time. For example in the given hand you should be calling here preflop 100% of the time. Your hand has a lot of nut potential and loves to see multiway pots, so there is no need in re-raising, not to mention that it has a 6 dangler, so it is not good enough to reraise anyways. Post-flop you have a monster and you are a favorite even over a set, so it is an easy ship. But have you only called preflop, then the pot will not be so bloated, that when the guy with set leads you can safely call in position with enough money behind to make better decisions on turn and river, and then if he bets this blank turn you can call again with enough money behind and good implied odds, and when you miss river like in this hand you can safely fold when he pots and save half of your stack.
