I... crush you. I already have 7k hands under my belt for the month, and ill probably get it to about 10k by the 10th. Maybe more.
i've already got plans for friday and all day sunday and monday also. i've really hit cards at 3/6 my last few sessions though. short ones, but definitely a nice boost.damn i had something i wanted to tell you but now i forgot. shnat.meh i lied. just checked and i'm over 10K hands for the month so far, though only 4500 at absolute.

Yeah, 50k hands is a ton. Depending on how many tables you play, thats like 75-100 hrs a month. I could never put that much in.BTW, I disagree with the whole thinking thats how much people so and so makes an hour line. For starters, online poker is a quickly depleting resource. These are the days to make your money. Poker bots, laws, poker skil increasing, and poker interest decreasing means there isnt to great a span to make $x/hr before you have to think about the real world (unless you play pro live). If that makes any sense.
personally, its important to know how much i average per hour online, since that might affect how i choose to spend my time. but i don't look at it like "i make $40 per hour, so i never need a job that pays less." There are a lot of reasons why it will be difficult to impossible to continue or increase our current hourly rates into the future, and increasingly difficult over a longer time span, at the very least in relation to playing stakes.for some of us, that is just because bonuses may dry up. but unless you're very skilled (which you don't need to be to be averaging upwards of $5-10 per table hour at low stakes), then you'll soon need to be playing extremely high stakes, unless online poker somehow continues in its current (or better) state for many years.
Long signatures are really annoying.
