Out of curiosity. How many hands per hour are you guys putting in? Obviously this applies only to online as we know live is around 30-40Also, if you're among the higher numbers, do you find its draining on you to put in more than a few hours?

I play 4tables of 6max and it comes out to about 400-450/hour.I'm looking at small stakes NL on FTP right now and most of the 6max tables are 85-110 hands per hour.

301-500 When I'm playing smart and not more than 6 tabling. I would day my winrate is around 4BB/100 when that is happening, prob play around 400-500 hands in an hour, all $200nl right now. So like $64-80/hr, too bad it's not just consistent like that, haha.

Oh man that really grinds my gears. I play in a home game every Tuesday that friend and I dubbed, "the WSOP game" cause every single hand every player in the game takes 10 minutes to make a decision as if they are playing heads up for a bracelet and 1 million dollars.

Yeah it's a delicate balance. When I play lots of poker I don't focus enough and then my winrate drops drastically. Yesterday I played for like 3-4 hours but was mostly 1-3 tabling so only got like 830 hands, if I was 12 tabling I would have got a ton in but my winrate would have been much smaller on avg. Take it FWIW I won $6 yesterday, but I'm fairly sure my winrate is much higher when I'm 4 tabling or less than when I get over 6. On Tilt or Stars I think I could play 6-8 pretty easily, but AP has no time bank and times down so much faster.Edit: I think a lot of people wrongly confuse effort with volume which just isn't the case. It's really hard to gauge how hard someone is "trying" at poker. Some people spend a lot of time reviewing their sessions (not many), some watch videos and take lots of notes (not many), some talk hands for like an hour a day with people they respect (not many), and others put in a ton of volume and play 60k hands in a month. The one improving the least is usually going to be the one playing 60k hands, even though it seems like he has the best work ethic because you can actually see the amount of time he's put in, it's measurable. Then again some people play 15k hands and are just as unfocused as the guy playing 60k hands, which I'm definitely guilty of, it's def bad to not put in a lot of volume and then when you do play to play unfocused. All the shit people don't like to do to improve is the reason so many people are optimistic about their future as professional poker players, everyone wants to be lazy and to just jam tons of hands out instead of getting better and the reality is that the fish pool keeps getting smaller and the avg player keeps getting better, so imo it's all about self improvement and challenging yourself to be a player trying to improve instead of trying to win the most you can in any given month.Sorry for the long response to a joke!

I 18 table it on Pokerstars...I used to 24, but 18 seems like a nice balance for me now...much more time and I never feel rushed...I play 50 nl cash all on pokerstars with the 50 BB min requirement, and that works out to around 1000 hands an hour.I actually think at this limit my winrate would drop if I only played 4 tables as I'd become extremely bored and play way more hands than the style I've become acustomed to playing, and thats a pretty tight one.

I think what you're doing is an example of what I think most do and shouldn't do if they have long-term aspirations in poker. You're playing a very cookie-cutter style that can win at $50nl and instead of working on your leaks and moving up and fixing those leaks you are jamming out as much profit per month that you can while being in a comfortable environment. If you think playing less tables would be bad for you because you would get bored that's probably because you don't hafta put a bunch of thought in your decisions right now and you avoid tough decisions. this is all stuff that you should be doing if your mass tabling and you're prob doing it fine, it's just not going to help you improve as a player and w/e maybe you'll improve faster by making lots and hiring a coach quicker than you would of or something.I dunno, I don't want to come off as bashing you, I just think what your doing is the path most people follow and it's why they get stuck for eternity at whatever level they are at.

I'm around the same as tskillz really. I don't play a ton of tables at once, never more than 8 and usually 4-6, and I generally try to focus on playing my A+ game and noting down as much stuff as possible. I'm also a big believer in improving your game rather than just grinding hands. Funnily enough my winrate is pretty similar to Tim's too (over an admittedly smaller sample size) at 200nl.

4 tablesSeems to work well for me. I get a decent volume in without sacrificing reads, and becoming a robot.Since moving up to $5NL 6max, I've played about 2,139 hands and my win rate is around 15.86BB/100That rate is totally sustainable once I get to the nosebleeds, right...right?
