I started farming when pooling got introduced and I joined SpacePool right from the start. When the first “dust storm” hit, I apparently weathered it (pun intended) well 'cuz I got 3 or 4 blocks found during that week or so. Since, as part of a pool, that only got me .25 chia each time, I figured maybe I should try self pooling. So, I switched to that shortly after. I ended up getting 1 block the first week, then nothing for almost 2 months. (just over 7,000 plots, so my est win rate is 1/10 days) Finally, I decided on the 23rd of Dec to jump back into Space Pool. I got 1 block within 24 hours–then 2 more in the next 7 days.
Is this just weird luck, or is there some reason that I would win so much more when part of a pool?
