The tricky thing (and the wonderful thing IMO) about poker is that there are so many more variables than just what hand you have. You definitely need information about your opponents (what type of player they are) and a good understanding about what a "good" hand is based on your position at the table and the types of players around you.
Do you use any kind of software (HEM or PT4) when you are playing?
Do you play a full ring table or 6-max?
Do you play one table at a time or more than one?
How familiar are you with the concepts of player types and table position?
It may seem that these questions aren't resolving the question you asked (how long do you stay at a "bad" table) but the answers really will help us to help you.
I am using Holdem Manager 2. I have about a 20% VPIP and a 17% PFR
I dont really play hands that are below 10,10 or 9,9 depending on position.
If I am in position are there are 3 loose players at the table who are raise re raise all the time and I have 2,6 or something I just drop it.
I play at 6 max tables and normally play 1 or 2 at a time.
How do you mean player types?
I know the terms, Loose Fish, Aggro Fish, Rock etc.
