The question I am adressing you now is how do you play those tables, and is it profitable to you, if not why?
2 bad beats also in that hour. AA vs KK, flops quad lol.
top pair vs middle pair, rivers a trip.
Dont kid yourself! You are NEVER gonna be able to sustain that kind of hourly rate. Rush is very swingy and has a mix of a lot of appaulingly bad players plus a few damn good ones! (relatively)
I would liken the difficulty overall to the equivalent of 10NL full ring since play is about as tight though less aggressive but runs at a pace that can leave you feeling a little rushed when you have to make that once every ten minutes marginal decision. Its the occasional open shove with J4o and the ridiculous blind defences with ATCs that can make it profitable for the patient player who is willing to fold 90% of his hands and wait.
I have played some 35k hands in 18-19 days. I love the way I can get quickly into a couple games without having to worry about table selection and build up a good sample for my database quickly.
2.1BB per 100 is never gonna set the world on fire, but at 730 hands per hour and with rake back, $2 is an hourly rate I can be confident in fairly quickly. I have the option to play two more tables in the future and double my winrate before the 5BB per hundred hands ceiling is even close.
I believe a REAL LONG TERM $5 per hour is possible from rush before having to move up from the lowest stake level.
LOL I dont care what anyone says, I believe there is a large jump in difficulty (in making a longterm profit) when moving up from the lowest stake in any game. Be it 2NL normal poker or 5NL rush. You ask anyone who has beaten 2NL for a great 5BB how they find 5NL 30k hands after they move up. Play is NOT the same, It just that little bit tougher, just enough for the rake to cancel out most of your edge and leave you a frustrated break even player lacking confidence in your game. A string of bad beats = a day of tilt and half your BR gone. Ive been there too many times.
