Default Expected Hourly Profit

Let's say you are a solid "winning" player in Limit (i.e. +EV 7/10 sessions), for the following games, what should be the expected hourly profit with 100 hours logged?

2/4
3/6
5/10

Your question is too vague to answer.

There are factors like:

1) How many tables do you play
2) What site do you play on (assuming Internet Poker)
3) Do you have a Rakeback deal (it's money in your pocket either way)
4) How big of a winning player are you? 0.5BB/100?? 2BB/100?
5) Are you paying taxes on your winnings?

Which you aren't addressing.

Bascailly you get about 80 hands p/hr in on any 6-max table on a site like Stars or Full Tilt. It's pretty easy to take a 1BB/100 or whatever winner and just do the maths from there.

Based on my 3 hour session in a 0.25/0.50 game hourly expectation is 100bb an hour.

Looks like I've been averaging ~ 10-15 BB/Hr at 1-3 hr. stints....not sure how that stacks up...??

you actually shouldn't be alive at the moment, because you're running hot enough to ionise the oxygen you're breathing.

enjoy it. but long term, 2BB/100 hands is very respectable in the modern game.

You're either a rising poker god or incredibly lucky or both.

Not quite sure why I'm only recorded back to October last year, but Poker Edge says I've played 21,540 hands of 0.25/0.50 for a profit of $202.

As a recreational player, I usually log around 300-400 hands on a normal day, most often with between 4-7 tables open at any one time (full ring). Not often more than 1500 a week though by the looks of things since October, but then I'll have some days when I choose to play a series of sngs instead..

I've been beating this level at this sort of rate for a while and looking at the stats of my regular opponents on poker edge, I'd say that that this sort of profit is fairly normal for a winning microstakes player.

404BB over 21.5k hands, just shy of 2BB/100, solid winrate, you shouldn't have any difficulties if you move up to 50c/1.

Agreed very solid winrate means you're definitely in the top tier of players at your level.

As for the OP, again there's a bit of a lack of context in 10-15BB/hr over 100 hours since if it's live that could be a 3500-4000 hand sample which we know is pretty much irrelevant, or it could be 10-tabling (i.e. almost 100k hands) at 1BB/100 which is very impressive.
