How many bb do you make every 100 hands?

I doubt many players will be forthcoming with their winrates, because this question is akin to asking a woman for her bra size.

My winrate depends on the stakes and game type I'm playing, how many tables I have active, and how good/bad I'm running. Small sample winrates (less than 20,000 hands) are fairly meaningless, because even a fish can go on a heater and win at 12bb/100 over a small sample. (Slight brag: I once ran at 88bb/100 for 3000 hands)

In the long run, you're considered to be "beating the rake" if you win anything more than 0.01 big blinds per hundred hands. Solid regs might win at 5-15bb/100 at the lowest stakes, but by the time you get to 25NL, very few players win at more than 5bb/100.
In addition, most winning players tend to lose money in one third of the sessions they play. Poker is a hard way to earn an easy living.

I don't mind

I agree (also slight brag: 215BB/100 for 62 hands at 100NL...lol)

True

Solid regs might win at 5-15bb/100 at the lowest stakes, but by the time you get to 25NL, very few players win at more than 5bb/100.

Not to sure about that. I'm presently playing 50NL and over 85,582 hands, my BB/100 is at 11.01 and 4.62 at 25NL for 299,264 hands

In addition, most winning players tend to lose money in one third of the sessions they play. Poker is a hard way to earn an easy living.

Also not sure as I've played a total of 4,180 sessions and won 2,573 (61.56%). As for earning a living, I agree.

I have to say that almost all my games were ZOOM
I started on January 1st 2012 at 2NL and built my way up to where I am today. (over 360,000 hands)

Hope this helps
