I will fold to a nice bet most of the time after the flop unless I make my hand or a solid draw. Is this not the best way to play these types of hands?
How many hands before I discover my true winrate? 10,000? 20,000? 50,000? More?
Its almost impossible to judge hands with out actualy seeing them, post some hands your not sure about in the HA section and im sure you will get alot of feedback.
That said, i never open limp and only rarely limp behind(only if there are like 4-5 limpers infront and i have 55 other wise im raising all pairs).
In theory u should actualy never know your real win rate since the games are allways changing and you should allways be improving your game.
But yeah i would say like 20k hands at one level should be pretty close to your actual win rate.
If your using HEM you can check your standard deviation and punch that and your curent winrate into this variance simulator http://www.pokervariancesimulator.fr/
Pretty scary how much variance can affect your winrate even over a large sample...
