In this very brief essay in Poker, Gaming, and Life, Sklansky argues:
Few people realize how much even expert players are the mercy of luck in the short run. One of the most dramatic ways to show this is by [pointing out that] no one could beat a draw game if they were never dealt a pat straight or better. [...] Without these occasional super hands being dealt to them, even the expert players could at best hope to break even.
For those who have never played draw, consider this to be roughly the same as never flopping a set or better in HE.
This is amazing to consider. If you “run bad”, you just cannot win. Luck is mandatory.
