      I am gonna make the transition from sit and gos to cash games. I feel real complete poker is played in cash games as your play and ideas are limited in sit n go's turbos especially.
      I played 2.8k sit and go's on pokerstars and the ipoker network with the average buyin being $8 and aveage profit per game being $1.36. My stats and profits are pretty good but i feel bored to play sit n gos now and im not as motivated as i used to be but i feel really excited and motivated to get deep into cash games and to learn and understand the strategies fully.
      If i 9 tabled NL10 on pokerstars and played 5,000 hands per day how much would i earn per day in rakeback? Also what do u think is good PTBB/100 at this level?

      Thanks alot for any replies

      I would say play less table, improve ur game and move up sooner

      Some people make 10BB on 100k hands, but then again, why not moving up earlier?
      At 2BB you haven't beaten the limit, play solid, make 3-8BB and move up when BR is right. Essentially that means with your first big upswing and a few ten thousands hands you can move up.

      nine tabling for rakeback only might not be as profitable as 2-3 tabling and completely owning your opponents.

      for me, it's about 3-8BB/100 nine tabling, and more like 20-50 BB/100!!! playing 2-3 tables. You give up a lot by playing ABC, and there are plenty of player like me taking advantage of the multitablers, who are so predictable. I know, it happened to me :)

      This should put things in perspective. I used to 9 or 12 table at my limit and i was winning 5bb/100. I now 4 or 6 table (Depending on number of good tables) and am winning at 12bb/100. My hourly rate is higher than when i played more tables. You learn alot more and develope more when you can actually pay attention to hands more (even if your not in the pot) =)

      Thanks guys for your replies.
      Well the last few months i have been 24 tabling 9 max sit and gos using TableNinja so i feel very comfortable to play 9 tables. Anyways since the original post i have decided what im gonna do.
      I have already played 16,ooo+ hands at NL10 playing 20 Tables SSS :) It has been working a treat. I will move up to NL25 after 50k Hands and then up to NL50 after another 50k hands.
      I know people will say u wont learn anything playing so many tables but i do not see how that is true. Playing 1200 hands per hour/ 10,000 hands per day forces you to learn at an incredible speed of course. At the end of the day i have a lot of hands and spots to analyze and i feel this is where i learn the most. Reviewing my sessions in Holdem Manager and applying that in the next session.
      BTW i made 150+ vpps per hour SSS nl10 20+ Tabling. Ive also made 2.6 BB/100 in the 16k+ hands thus far.
      Thanks again for trying to help mayb ill keep u posted on my efforts?

      how do you get rakeback on pokerstars? (- edit, figured it out myself by buying money with FPP's)

      When you buy money with FPP's, do you get the money directly, or is released like normal bonuses - $10 per 170 VPP's?
