      Hey. I'm doing a little research and for it I would need number of hands FL SH players make in a month.

      So few rules.

      1. Only Fixed Limit players are "allowed". I know you NL people out there really like answering this kinda threads, but... Just don't :)
      2. I only need Short Handed players, not Full Ring.
      3. Number of hands in complete months (not like this February).
      You don't have to play everyday, just that you played for a whole month. Number can we round up to "100" (22500, 12600, 103400,...)
      4. Post for as many months as you like. Just that it follow rules from 1-3.

      5. This is what I would need from you:
      5.1 Month (Year)
      5.2 Number of hands
      5.3 On how much tables you usually play
      (optional) 5.4 On which site.

      For example:
      January
      23500
      4 tables
      Mansion

      Thanks for your help :)

      I don't think that many players have a fixed volume of hand. Personally, I've played more in December+January than in any other months because of vacations+rain outside.
      I don't have my tracker here, but this should be quite accurate

      December
      35000
      4 tables
      Party+Stars

      January
      30000
      between 2 and 4 tables
      Party+Stars

      Febuary -> I hope I'll reach 20k hands ! (less tables opened due to a move up in limit + business trips)

      That's why I want as much as information as I can get.

      From august 2008, till today about 17000-18000/month on average. 4 tables. Stars, FTP, Party.

      I do plan an increase of making 30k hands/month every month, 6 tabling.

      December 2008
      2208 hands (+HU)
      Partypoker

      January 2009
      11 hands (played HU only ^^)
      Partypoker

      Not very much. But I usually don't play much and in a downswing it's even less. (And I had some tests as well.)

      Think I played like 15k hands/month on average when I played SH.

      I always play more in downswings, scared to lose my money :D
