Can you delineate the legs?

Sure. All contracts were November calls. For each contract, I was long 1 @ 190, short 2 @ 195, and long 1 @ 200. Barring an exceptionally good day for AAPL today, the entire thing will expire worthless, but since I was paid 2 cents/share to open the position (after commissions), I come out slightly ahead.

Back when I started watching the live quote for the spread, AAPL was on an uptrend and trading in the low 190s. In that case, I was expecting that AAPL would expire close to 195. An expiration at 195 would make the spread worth $5/share.
