This is a discussion on Guys, whats a good win rate for 3-6 limit live?? Here is mine within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Each number represents a session. No i did not keep track of time. Just per session profits or losses. Show me your limit return rate
Im not an expert on limit but i would think that would be about right in terms of expected winrate. 361 over 80 hours is about $4.5 an hour which is about where you are going to end up, Usually for limit we are only talking between the 1bb to 3bb per hour range live. 3 being exceptional ofcourse.
granted, it is a small sample size, so could go either way.

Game: Hold 'Em
The results look pretty good -- better than I'd expect, considering how these live games are raked. Looks like you're getting around $4.50/hr. A good result would be one large bet/hr, but considering the rake at these low limit live games, you are likely to be under that.
I do see some problems there: -300 and -260. That's onehelluvalot to be losing in 3/6FL. That's four or five buys down the drain. I would question if losses of these magnitudes aren't pointing to tilt control problems. Let's look at the potential winnings had you cut your losses after dropping a couple of buys (-120). You would have had $1040 for a $13/hr win. That's running good, very good.
"Does anyone here strictly play fixed limit 3-6? What are your results after promotions? After winning days?"
I avoid it like the plague, and anything less than 10/20FL (the occasional 8/16 game excepted) isn't worth my time. These days, the rake at these low limit games is absolutely brutal and makes them unbeatable. Used to be that finding good FLHE games wasn't difficult, even at stakes as low as 1/3 or 1/4. That was 25 years ago. Today FUGGEDABOUDIT!
This is short sighted stupidity on management's part. Give the low limit live players a break, and cultivate them for graduation to the no-limit games. If I were running a card room I'd offer these small games with no rake. Give these fishies a break, give them a chance to win, and they'll stick around, hopefully to graduate to the no-limit games. You keep running off the fish and there won't be any games. It's especially foolish post Black Friday.

A good win rate for beating any game you play in is normally 7bb- and up in an hour. you want to try to make atleast this amount an hour to show good profit in your game.. by the look at your graff your doing well so just keep it up and grind grind grind

re: Poker & Guys, whats a good win rate for 3-6 limit live?? Here is mine
Im not sure how anyone can say $4.5 per hour is a good win rate for spending so many hours playing. If the point is to make money you are better off at Taco Bell...if not then why bother being concerned as long as you profit in the end.
I see you took out your dealer rant. Good for you.

You need to tighten up..
Your win rates are solid and you seem to be very good at the game,but overall you should be looking for at the minimum -85 or so as a bad day. I don't see any reason to lose 300 in a day.
I mean If you can win +85 9 times in a row then have a 2 bad days at -100 then your profit margin would be much better in the long run.
It's fun to win 300 dollars in a day but whats the point if you lose it in a week later at -300. 80 hours 360 profit sucks that 80 bucks or so a week. 4 bucks an hour is not worth your time unless your just trying to train in poker,I mean it's profit so that's great however You can make it a 12 dollar an hour if you lose less and take marginal wins more often. Just reduce the amount you lose on bad days and keep winning your profit should climb up.
