Winrate??

I've been playing in a Rakefree spread limit ($1-$2-$10) HoldEm game. With competition being a Level 2 or 3 if I'm being generous on a scale of 1-10.... Without rake and with such light competition, in your opinion, what would be a great winrate to achieve?

Listen, here’s the thing, if you can’t spot the sucker in your first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker. Guys around here will tell you, you play for a living, it’s like any other job. You don’t gamble, you grind it out. Your goal is to win one big bet an hour, that’s it. Get your money in when you have the best of it. Protect it when you don’t. Don’t give anything away. That’s how I paid my way through half of law school. A true grinder. You see I learned how to win a little at a time. But finally I’ve learned this: if you’re too careful your whole life can become a ****in’ grind.

Anything positive. I wouldn't worry about winrate and worry about making good decisions instead. Keep a ledger and see how you're doing.

Don't worry about winrates. Just keep trying to get your loserate as low as you can.
