Anything is possible statistically speaking in terms of ev in poker. It is possible that your entire life you will be a losing player but based on your play you should be up a significant amount. You could also be a player who goes on a winning streak for ten years but should be broke too many times to count. There are people who win the lottery multiple times and others who get struck by lightning multiple times. I guess you could say that both groups are lucky. Just one is considered bad luck and the other good.

They are two different components of the game that are not complements of each other and cannot be summed up to 100%. Such an equation is just nonsense. What can be done however, is quantifying the effect of luck according to the number of hands played. Obviously the law of large numbers tells us that eventually the random luck for us and against us tends to cancel each other out and we are left with only skill. But the sample size to reach this point (within some confidence interval) is dependent on an individual's play style, skill edge, and other factors, so that too is not something that can be easily generalized (if at all).
