With so many variables going on w/ online play its hard to determine what a good rate is for a winning player.

    I play lots of sites and multi-table alot so my results have been better than playing in a casino.
    Your are right, The way to calculate your Return in cash games is BB/100 hands or Big Blinds/hour.

    ROI (Return on investment) is used for sit and go's and tournaments. I use to have a 20% ROI for mid-stake sit'n go tourneys back in 2004-2005. (ex: 5$ per 25$ sit and go in profit). The average ROI of winning players went down a lot after the golden age of poker. Top players would have a 10% ROI or so, the games became thougher.

    Roxxy you don't get it..

    These poker sites that were taken down will never post as big of profits that they once did

    The U.S. Online poker industry was huge..

    They will survive but the same amount of profits that was once there is gone

    But it was bigger with U.S players

    Of course they will make money but gambling wise look at pinnacle sportsbook..

    Imagine if pinnacle accepted U.S. punters
