How is that strange?
I would be VERY worried if a reg was owning me consistently and I was unable to analyze his game and adjust.
As for the fish, if there are 20 big fish I know of, it is inevitable a few will have positive results against me in first few k hands we played. They get into God mode and so it goes.
Long term I would get them all but some of those bust their bankrolls before that can happen or I move up, whatever.
There is one guy who at one point at 25NL was +100$ vs me and losing heavily to everybody else (he was actually in small profit overall exclusively due to my contributions. Now he is at +58$ against me and I wouldn't bet on him to stay ahead for long on the other hand I owned one whale for +90$ and another for +80$ so yeah... you gotta look at fish population as a whole.
