In poker, the term “winrate” refers to the amount of money a player has won over a certain amount of time. It is usually measured by how many blinds a player has won out of 100 draws. Winrate has everything to do with how good you are at poker.
To figure out how often you win at poker, you need to do some math. First, your profit is divided by how many draws you’ve played and how much the big blind was. Then you take that number and multiply it by 100.
Any number that is bigger than zero is a good number. It means that you’ve won more money than you’ve lost. If your win rate is more than 5, that’s a very good result that lets you raise the stakes. If you’re winning more than 10 percent of the time, you’re probably on an upstreak.
Due to dispersion, the real long-term winrate can only be figured out after a very large number of games have been played. Some say this number is 100,000 draws.
When you play limit poker, you can figure out your win rate with the formula big bet/100, where a “big bet” is two big blinds.
Some players think of their winrate in terms of how many big blinds they win per hour or how much money they make after playing 100 hands.
The following things determine the win rate:
Limits: If the limits are low, it is easier to win. But it’s boring to play with low stakes and try to win a lot of money.
The more tables you play, the faster your win rate drops.
In the long run, your skill is the most important thing.
