Being short stacked is an advantage in non-heads up PLO and NLHE. It's a larger advantage in PLO though. I don't have time to explain why but I'm sure you can just google that question :) Whether or not you should buy in deep depends on how big your winrate is, how deep the weak player(s) is/are and how good you are at playing deep/short. Unless you're playing high stakes it's usually worth it to buy in for the maximum if you're a winning player at your stakes.

For the last year I've been one of the biggest winners in the games I play in at mid-high stakes. I have had plenty of big downswings in the past but they haven't affected me that much as I've always had great ev adjusted results. However, during the last month or so my ev adjusted results have been terrible over a large sample. I've been running a lot above ev in the meantime so my actual results are pretty good, but the fact that I know I'm supposed to be losing money feels a lot worse than actually losing money. As a result, I've been a lot less confident in my game, have started questioning many aspects of my strategy, started looking a lot more at what other regs are doing and I'm a lot less creative.
Does anyone have any advice about how to deal with a situation like this?

Good video. At 29:11 you bet 75% pot when checked to. As you mentioned, this bet is quite large. I would usually bet 1/3 pot in this spot because we make a lot of the same hands fold with that sizing and I like to be able to bet an unpolarized range here for protection (pair+straight draw, sets, flushes, floats, maybe some weak 2 pairs etc.) because his hand range is unpolarized as well. Also, I think it's good to keep his turn calling range less polarized as it puts his range in a lot of tough spots on the river if we bet again. What do you think about this strategy and do you think 1/3 pot is too small?
