Just for the sake of argument, we're talking microstakes, and I usually look for tables with over 40% see the flop/ over 70 hpr.
Don't do what is in bold above. There will be times where you are breaking even on a table just due to variance, but the table is still worth playing.
What others said above is what you should be looking at. So in your case if you are even at 100 hands and the fish have left and the table is now tight or full of a bunch of regs, it would be time to go. However, if you are even at 100 hands and the table is still loose and the fish are still there, you should hang around, you'll get paid off eventually.
