      Hi,

      Is it a realistic goal to think, putting in anywhere from 1 to 8hrs a day single-tabling 5/10LHE, that I can consistently make $100 to $200 a day?

      What if I 2 or 3 table?

      Is there anybody beating 5/10 Limit like this?

      Thanks,

      Sam

      Realistic winrate if you're good at that limit = 2PTBB/100
      Hands per hour ~ 80-100
      Implied hourly winrate single tabling : 16-20 $

      You must be very good with 2BB/100 winrate over really big samplesize (100k+)... something like 1.5 is more realistic I think, but you still have to be good ;)
      edit: sorry, you can have 2BB/100 if you play 1-2 tables for sure, but as mentioned below, there're hardly any long time winners that play 1 or 2.

      28renton: I doubt there's winning player on 5/T who use to play 1 table. As I could see, the standard is 4, but playing 6-8 is possible too if you're really good (BB/100 winrate drops, but hourly income raises anyway).

      So my guess is, you can earn ~$50/hr by playing 4 tables (1.5 BB/100 & 330 hands on average) + something else form loyalty schemes (~$20 on stars)

      Hi 28renton,

      I think calculating with 1-1,5BB(bigbet)/100 hands is good. More is most of the time an upswing or he plays really well. So to win 100-200$ you need to play 700-2000 hands (best case 100$ and worst case 200$) a day. If you play 1-8 hours (80-100 hand/h) you need to play 7 hours (best case) and more.

      So I don't think that it's realistic even if your winrate is a 2BB/100$.

      It's not by playing 1 table, but play 4 hours 4 tables with 1BB winrate and it can be $130 (330 hands/h on average) + $70-$80 from bonuses = $200 per day on average

      Math is easy, doing that close to impossible for me :D
