      Before Black Friday, I knew of at least two members who played ten tables at a time in ring. Based on the normal average of fifty hands an hour per table, that's approximately five hundred hands per hour. They did this from four to ten hours each day, depending on the day.

      If that period was suppose to indicate 1500 hands, you're doing what they did in a three-hour period.

        Cairn you must have looked out for the slowest tables on the site if you were only averaging 50 hands per hour at each table. When I played Full Ring normal speed that was close to being right buy even they ran more like 55-60 hands per hour. Full Ring fast was like 65-70 per hour. 6 max tables were way faster than that even,normal speed around 70-75 hands an hour and fast 6 max tables ran like 85-90 hands and hour. That's NL as FL would definitely run a lot slower with many more hands making it to the river by percentage. Now some flux to speed the tables up would occur when a table would see players leave and not be immediately replaced true,but that happens so often as to be factored in as normal.

        Go look at the hands per hour line on the rings at any time,think you'll find 50 hands per hour as an exception,not nearly the rule.

          That's not how you do it, no.
          How you do it is you play three hands a day every other day

              There are a lot of variables, such as the limits, the specific game, and if the table has six or ten players. At some of the lower levels, I've seen the average drop from 150+ hands per hour to twenty in less than ten minutes. I'm thinking my number is a conservative one based on a limit game, which should be a good number for estimating since he doesn't specify what he plays.

              Now based on the response, it took him between five and six hours to do 1,500 hands. That works out to 275 hands per hour. ( 1500/5 + 1500/6 = averaged) Based on three to five tables, that's about 70 hands an hour (275/4) per table. I'm guessing he is playing no limit, which makes your numbers a better gauge.

                Yeah especially if he played FR,6 max he should be seeing more hands than that. Like I said FL is definitely slower at the low levels as nearly every hand goes to showdown.

                    I think Chris had most of us beat before we got out of bed for the day.

                    Dont make the mistake of increasing tables to soon.
                    I used to play 24 tables of 2nl because I thought I could do it easily.
                    Now I play 2-4 tables,usually 2 and I have a better winrate.

                    I start my own tables and leave when the table fills up if I count 3 regs or more.
                    Of course that doesnt work at all levels but it does at 2nl.

                    I think 1500 is decent,3k Is pushing it for me and my eyes are usually shot.
                    I aim for 1750 when I play.

                      I totally agree I'll play 2 tables and open an another when I'm ready to close one because I've reached 100% or it's a dead table I will sometimes increase to 4 if I'm on a very good roll umbup:

                        When i experimented with cash i played 24 tables of 2nl and averaged about 1150 hands an hour

                        i moved up to the 10nl level that went down to about 1050 tho.
