Can confirm. Softest 1/2-1/3 I've ever played in. I can't wait for Encore Boston Harbor to open up, I imagine the games there will be as soft as when MGM National Harbor first opened up.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Last fall I was running bad at 2/5 and decided to play 1/2 for a short while and fix some leaks but also work on cranking up my aggression level to an uncomfortable point to get me out of my comfort zone. Things went well and I went back to 2/5 exactly 1 year ago. Here are some results from the past 12 months of 2/5 (small amount of 5/5 from a recent trip to L.A). Ive played 5/10 also but those results are not included here.

1291 hrs...11.1 BB/hr

StnDev...61BB/hr

Avg session...4.2 hrs

Winning sessions 69%

Biggest downswing $2900

I played in 15 different rooms in 5 states.

My last 450 hrs are at 14.5BB/hr

Thx. None of that is from Vegas. I live in S. Florida and played all over Florida. I also played in Philly, L.A. New Jersey, and New Orleans in 2018. I think those are the only areas I played this year but I travel a lot and may have missed somewhere.

This is my results at over 1500 hours in cash games since 2012. I'm almost back to even and I lose $0.11 per hour. I've won in 43% of sessions. I've only played 22 hours in 2018. I've never played over 500 hours in one year.

You don't often see posters here posting mediocre results over non-trivial sample sizes; thanks for doing so!

What stakes do you play? If you play higher than the minimum game offered in your room, the obvious suggestion would be to move down a level or two.

Otherwise, I'd suggest posting some hands and getting feedback / grunching threads.

I play $1-$2. I would play lower if I could. I did start getting involved on here a little bit in 2016. I only played 2 sessions for 8 hours in 2017. It is because I got engaged in 2017 and just got married this year. For my bachelor weekend, I requested to go play and made $634 in 2.5 hours. Since then, I've been playing slightly more. The 2 sessions in 2017 were just to keep my reward points active.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

If you're only playing a few times a year, then honestly it's probably not worth too much extra effort off the felt; just enjoy your rare poker outings for what they are.

If you start bumping up those recreational hours to something more significant (say 300+ hours/year or whatever) then you'll want to consider putting more off felt effort into your game.

In 2014, I played 446 hours. I started to play a lot in 2015, but I over did it. I played 58 hours in January and 98 hours in February and I only made $558 in that time for $3.57 per hour. So, I found a better hobby and ended up meeting my wife.

Thanks to all ! GL

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Hi all,

Will be positing a graph when I get to 1000 hours

What do you guys think about having a 4bb/hr winrate at 1/3 over 680 hours and winning 5bb/hr over the last 582 hours?

Solid? Room for improvement?

I want to move up to 2/5 eventually.

Always room for improvement. Always.
Having said that, very nice work. You're doing well. And almost certainly within the top 10% in your room, and maybe in the top 5%.
Winning over 1000 hours is good almost no matter the win rate, at 5+/hour you're doing well.

Congrats!

Nice job! ..... Tho wouldn't $16.37/hr translate to 8.2 BB/hr at 1/2?

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I have to say, when I first started playing live poker, I was pretty mediocre.

Started off with a bankroll of $1k to play live 1/2 as a sophomore in college.

First 400 hours

Profit: $5100

Hourly: $12.75/hour

(played a whole summer with a ton of time on wednesday and thursday at 2pm in a pretty dead card room. hard to sustain a good hourly when you're playing in ****ty games)

This was playing a combination of 1/2 and 1/3 winning 4-5bb/hr. Not exactly ideal. Right now, in my last year of college, I am on a hell of a heater (playing mainly on friday and saturday nights helps too). I've even moved up to 2/5 in the meantime.

Next 265 hours

Profit: $12759

1/2 and 1/3 hourly: $42.48

2/5 hourly: $36.87

Bankroll is up to 15k (after buying a ****ty used car with some of the cash) and am hoping to move up to 5/10 by the end of 2019!
