2ptbb/100 hands @ 50NL = \$2 per 100 hands

1200 hands per hour means that hourly is \$2x12/hr

= \$24/hr +RB

No idea where \$96/hour is coming from.

On FTP at 100NL(non-rush) I can only think of one player that would be over \$100/hr and he's 16 tabling winning at 4ptbb+/100.

12 tabling FTP non rush tables is REALLY slow, 16 tabling is usualy only 1k to 1.2k hand an hour, usualy on the lower side.

so you would need 9+ptbb at 50nl to be close to 100 an hour

yup that's why I doubt there is anyone beating 50NL for over \$100/hr (at least on Stars/Tilt dunno about this 70% rakeback ********) unless they are multi siting or something. If the best regs at FR 100NL on tilt are struggling to break it then chances are no one at 50NL is.

MAYBE. if he two tabled and only played when the games were the best. but there is zero chance cw can do this. Man I wish somebody would take them up on this. sources: http://www.cardrunners.com/cr_forums...593#post558593 http://www.cardrunners.com/cr_forums...l=1#post550491

BTW, PTR has Alvin "Citizenwind" Lau at 4.1BB/100 over 60K hands at NL50 through August.

Re: Making \$100/hr Playing On-line Low Stakes Poker

In 2008, WCGRider made a prop bet that he could win \$10,000 in one month at 25nl. He is a terrific player and was playing well above 25nl at that time. Here's the thread that covered the event.

This coda pretty much says it all.

If i go back to normal stakes i can prob make a good chunk of this money back, and i need to grind out the points for my EPT package (which will be much easier at higher levels). What went wrong? Well several things in my opinion. 1) I actually believe regs adapted to me(as lol as that sound at nl 25). Basically, the first couple of days i played, i actually made +1200. But even more then that, I was basically breakeven near the end of the first day. So i essentially went +1200 in ~30 hours. But then i totally ran into a wall. I started gettig killed in non sd pots and it just seemed like i wasnt stacking anyone. A few days went by, and i started playing absolutely crazy lag, which actually worked for a bit. But then again, after a couple of days people started to catch up. It seemed like i could always get a couple days in of doing wlel and then it would just stall out, which you really cant have in something like this. 2) I played during the day a bunch. Sort of retarded on my end, but the games can be abolutely so nitty during the day that it is very difficult to even beat them for very much. Playing at night is definetely the way to go when you do something like this. 3) My sleeping was absolutely terrible during this. Actually, for the first week, it wasnt even sleeping. Id lay down for about3-4 hours and then get back up because i just plain and simple could not sleep. Every day, couldnt sleep. It relaly starts to get to you and it started to wear on me very hard. 4) I didnt realize how invalid my prior sample of 140k hands at nl 25 was. I beat it for 7-8 ptbb/100 over that sample and thought wow, i could just light this up. Didnt happen. So Xorbie can go ahead and send out the bets. I dont want to keep anything waiting any longer then it has to. Sorry for letting you guys down but i gave it my best and hey, thats all you can do. There is no point continuing for my \$18 hourly atm (lol). At least put my money to good use. =p. ~Doug
Today, 25nl is far tougher than it was in 2008.

The typical supernova elite player earns \$100K in rakeback and 0 in winnings by grinding 30 tables 40 hours a week which is \$50/hour. I doubt that anyone already willing to commit to that much grinding would be abe to earn twice as much simply by improving their game or switching sites. They are already doing all they can to maximize their winnings and concluded \$50/hour is the max. Don't forget if you fail to make supernova elite the same grinder will only make \$25/hour!

not in true hourly, the 50nl hu players with high hourly in HEM are bumhunters who play 2mins, sitout and wait for an other huge whale.. in 1 day of 6 hours their HEM might show 40mins played.

Of course if a real hu pro who is good against good regs drops down to 50nl and plays on multisite to be sure to get enough action from the terrible regs bread at 50nl or fish, he would make 100\$ an hour quite easily.

I have gone 68-47 for \$750 in profit this week. 59% winrate (heads up sng) And I'm only getting \$54.54/hr played. For \$100/hr to be attainable after 115 HUSNG's you'd have to win 75 out of 115 which is 65% wins. That is nearly impossible unless you're only playing really bad donks, and you'll be waiting around for many hours more.
