That's exactly what it means - just what I said before.
At a table with stakes that high, a winrate of that magnitude over the long term would mean $200/100 hands, and if you're playing 100 hands per hour, that means you're making $200/hr for that single table. Add in another and you're up to $400/hr. 8-table and you're at $1600/hr.
Still not enough for you?
There isn't a person in the world who could make 50BB/100 over the long run at those stakes without astronomical luck.
To put it into perspective, the widely-accepted maximum winrate for say 50nl is around 10BB/100hands now.
