Its funny how it is the same things people ask - it must say that if you ask these quistions you dont have to be stupid.
My standard answer for that one is something like: I don't worry about how I'm doing in one session or day. After all, anyone can get a bad run of cards for a while. As long as I'm up at the end of the month, I'm happy.
This answer, if all goes well, accomplishes two things:
1. It keeps people from always bugging you about whether you are "up or down today".
2. It shows that you are a serious person with a long-term perspective, and it begins (one hopes) to educate them that poker is about the long-term, not about the big score.
