    That really depends on the opponent. When I'm in a game, be it online or live, a normal length is probably 2 orbits. It could be more or less, depending on what the opp is doing.
    If you want to get a read on what the opp will do, say for example, only in the blinds, then it will take a bit longer.. since they're in the blinds only two times per round.

    I've had some opps that I've played with before, that I had a solid read on them within 2-3 hands, but others it's taken a very long time to get a read on (sometimes well over 100 hands).

    It's something that you'll get more and more used to, the more that you play, which will then in most cases lower the number of hands that you need to see.
