    Default streak of bad luck/ stroke of luck

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?

    Hes had a streak of bad luck, but this time he had a stroke of luck.

    streak of bad luck = a continuous spell of bad fortune

    streak = an unbroken series of events

    stroke of luck = stroke of fortune = windfall

    stroke = anything that happens suddenly or by chance without an apparent cause

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
