How to calculate win rate

I understand bb/100 is 2 big blinds per 100 hands. what is the math to figure this out if my bb/100 is 7 at 2NL, 5Nl and 10NL?

I have also heard a lot of different numbers of what a good win rate is. I thought 4 would be good but I've read at micro good should be close to 10???

Re: How to calculate win rate

So you want to know what 7bb/100 equates to?

2nl: 2c x 7 = 14c/100
5nl: 5c x 7 = 35c/100
10nl: 10c x 7 = 70c/100

* is this what you mean?

Also, PTBB are Poker Tracker Big bets, and different to BB (Big Blinds)

IMO - anything positive is good.
Though, anything below 2 is very sketchy at micros?

Easy answer - Get the HEM or PT trial.

To calculate BB/100
(total $$$ won/(2 x BigBlind)) / (total hands played/100)

Anything over 0 is good. I would consider myself a decent winner if I was beating my current stakes for 4+ BB/100

FR.

If I'm at 7 bb/100 (2NL). My hourly is 7c?

I have PT3 but I'd like to do the math to understand better.

I haven't played FR in a few years but I believe 50 is the average hands per hour. If this is true you are correct.

You are making 7bb/100, aka $0.14 per 100 hands
50 hands an hour = $0.07 per hour

WoW!!! I suck!!! So to make a decent living you need to crush 1000NL at 4 bb/100 and 4 table.

1000NL 4bb/100, aka $40 per 100 hands
$20 per hour X 4 (tables)= $80 Hr. $160K year
20K BR.

This is going to take some time!

Well, I'm sure you would've moved up before earning 160k with a 20k bankroll. Also, that's the reason I stopped playing NL cash.

I'm good with 3 tables. I'm just getting comfortable with 4. It's only been 5 weeks so hopefully I'll be at 6 by the end of the month.

I think 8-10BB/100 is more common.
