This is a topic I have not seen mentioned on here and has come up in discussion between me and a friend a few times lately. I was wonder when it comes to Limit Hold'em cash games, what is a good 'average amount' you should make? For example...how many big bets per hour should you be profiting, or is there some other measurement to go by?

I've always heard 1 to 2 big bets per hour as standard, I'm not sure on how much what level u play at will effect this though. Obviously you'll get a lower win rate at $3/$6 limit then u will at 1c/2c limit, but  I don't know if you'll get such huge variation like u can in nl.

I believe playing professionally by mark blade covers this in depth.

I've been playing, almost exclusively, limit cash poker for many years.  I'd say I average 1-3 big bets per hour, if the game is moving at a good pace (minimum 20-30 hands per hour)

Sorry to bring up an older thread, but the question was posed to me regarding how much this would change if you were multi-tabling. For example, if you were playing 6 tables of limit, what would you expect the change to be in the bb per hour per table versus playing 1 table?

Why wouldn't you just multiply it by the number of tables? 

Dude is definitely weird.. If it's a bot, it's a pretty good one..  If it's a person, it's a pretty bad one.. LOL

Agreed. I've always heard 2 big bets per hour as the standard benchmark. Multitabling I would say slightly less than # tables x your earn at one table due to being able to pay less attention to the players and having to just play your cards more. I'd *guess* from 70%-95% of a one table earn depending on how many tables you're running assuming ALL other things being equal. I know that some players get bored playing too few tables then start playing too many hands and decrease their earn rate because of it.
