Math question...

Does anyone of you know how to calculate the win rate / big blind?

Ex. if you play 1000hands at a 10c 25c blinds and you win let us say 150$ what is your win rate at that level?
... ...
Thanks

(150/0.25) / (1000/100) = 60.

You're smashing it. And if you achieve just half that rate after 10,000 hands you'll still be smashing it

Win rate is irrelevant over 1K hands, it's just way too small a sample size. 60bb/100 at this point would simply mean you've run extremely good over a small sample. Not trying to burst your bubble if these are your actual numbers, but it is possible to be a losing player and be up 5 buy ins over 1K hands if you run hot (likewise it's possible to be a long term winning player and be stuck 5 buy ins over 1K hands when running bad).

I wouldn't even consider win rate until you hit 10K hands, and even then consider it only very loosely... really you want 50K+ hands (and 100K is even better) before you start drawing some conclusions about your win rate.

As to what is a good win rate, the answer I usually like to give is "anything that's green". I'm only half joking... the majority of players are not winning players so if you're win rate is positive over a large sample, this is a good thing.

Also, there's a difference between bb/100 and BB/100. bb stands for "big blinds" and BB stands for "big bets", where one big bet is two big blinds. If you're over 8 BB/100 (over a large sample, of course) you're pretty much crushing that limit and just keep grinding and improving your game until you can take shots at higher levels.
