How many BB/100 Hands is Good?
Hello everyone, just started playing $2NL on Full Tilt and I feel like I'm doing pretty well (haven't had a losing session yet), but I would like to know exactly how to measure my progress accurately. For example, for MTTs and SnGs I know that an ROI of around 25~50% is considered good for the microstakes, and that a sample size of at the very least 100 games, preferably more, is necessary in order to start getting an accurate picture.
So for NL cash games, how exactly do you calculate BB/100 hands (mathematically)? I'm guessing you just take your profit so far in Big Blinds, divide it by the number of hands played, and then multiply by 100. Does that sound right?
And secondly, what is my minimum hand sample size before I can start coming to any conclusions about my play? (So far I've played over 800 hands, which I'm sure is a ridiculously small sample size).
And finally, what is a good rate to shoot for, (5BB/100 hands, 10BB/100 hands)? And what would be considered "crushing" $2NL? (I hear that term a lot, and it sounds badass).
Many thanks for your patience, and let me know if it looks like I've botched anything here. Best of luck at the tables,
