What is considered good in poker?
I'm not a big online poker player, but I frequent live play a lot. More then occasional/recreational players for sure. I would consider it a hobby/passion/past time/income, etc.
I've been playing since I was 17, but in casino from 19 to now (23). Started playing 2/4 limit, learned the fundementals, stepped up to 3/6 NL (only game offered at the time), then found my niche playing 1/2 NL.
Anyway, I've been seriously keeping tracking of my outcomes since about September 2008, when I decided to form my bankroll again (i've exhausted my previous rolls for personal reasons). I've been keeping detailed records from Febuary til now. I've been able to formulate fancy excel spreadsheets and graphs and I'm really wondering whether I'm doing as well as I think I'm doing.
I'm just wondering what is considered "crushing" your current game? According to my data, I've been averaging about 8 big blinds per hour, which equates to $16/hour. I've built my roll from scratch and over the course of 9 months its at over 10k.
Would this be considered a good return? I know there is a bit more to be made but i think I should max out somewhere in the $20-25/hr range given consistent stellar play.
I'd consider myself quite seasoned and a regular at my local casinos
, I have good tilt control and good money management skills. My style is tight/aggressive. I'm pretty heavily rolled for my limit/style (50 buy ins @ 1/2NL). I'm still fine tuning things such as value betting and proper bet sizes. Maybe take a shot at the 2/5 NL game?
Thanks for reading, any constructive criticism is welcome!
