      You cant think in short terms, you must play for the long term winrate. In the short term you should focus on playing correct poker and limiting mistakes.

      Hi,

      Just played for 3 hours on 9 FR (0.05/0.10) and build my bankroll to $77 from $50. Doing well for now...
      Is this a normal winning rate?

      Cheers

      A winning rate is anything above 0.

      Just bear in mind that you will have -ve sessions too, everyone does.

      Can't endorse what KidPokersKid said enough, think of the long term and concentrate on your game, not your bankroll.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      Actually the situation looks like this: The smaller the sample size, the bigger ur winrate needs to be for you to consider urself a solid winner. If ur crashing FL for 5 BBs (I play FL, but IMO in NL it's the same) over 2000 hands it's not enough, but for 20.000 hands it's really good. If ur winrate is only 2 BBs, you gotta play 50,000 hands to make sure ur doing good, so GL to you guys!
