Bob,

Didn't you put in a ridiculous amount of hands over a short period of time a few years back trying to qualify for a Party Poker promotion? I remember you and a few others posters running these marathon sessions trying to qualify.

It was pretty sick, IIRC.

It was mostly me and Metetron the 2nd time. I think teddyfbi did it and also CardSharpCook IIRC. Not sure who else.

it was only 4-table max the first year I did it and I don't remember any other 2+2'ers being with me on that one.
The 2nd year it was 10 table max I think and I did it entirely on limit tables. Stakes mattered because it was total number of party points so I couldn't just sit on low-stakes tables and fold-away. I had to play a bit higher, like 10/20 6-max, or else I wouldn't get enough points.
So I had to actually concentrate on what was going on.
No way you could have gotten enough points at NL for this.

I probably played about 15k-17k hands a day for 4 days the 2nd time.

For this prop-bet I would probably be looking at 24-tabling full-ring NL although maybe I could sneak in a couple of 6-max tables to increase the rate. Obviously I would be would be folding more.

Alright, so 100k is easy. I wanna see a prop bet for 500k hands with the following stipulations:
- All at same limit (prolly like 100NL or so)
- All 6max
- At least one 50hr session (sitting w/ 25+ buyins at one table..no chip dumpers, meh)
- winrate of at least 2bb/100


Now there is a prop bet!!!

i currently work full time so i play poker as a lucrative hobby.

3 hours every weekday after work
and 10 hours on sat/sun/holiday

which totals to be about 25k hands per month

i think 100k hand is very possible for those playing poker for a living?

You will find very few players who play for a living putting in 100k hands a month. If so they wouldn't be playing for a living for very long.

rough estimation says it has to be 1-2 tabling, leaning toward 2
