### How to calculate your bb/100 or PTBB/100?

If you don't know how to calculate your bb/100 or PTBB/100 then this post will help you.

bb/100 is a measure of win rate and is the big blinds per hundred hands played.

PTBB (or BB) is Poker Tracker Big Bets and is also a measure of win rate and equals 2x the bb figure or half the bb/100 figure.

If I create an example we can see how to calculate the figure.

The following numbers are to be used:

8000 Hands
\$0.50 - NL50 limit bb as a decimal
\$265 - Winnings for the day

First calculate the number of big blinds won:
265/0.5 = 530 bb

Secondly calculate the sets of 100 hands:
8000/100 = 80

Finally calculate the bb/100:
530/80 = 6.62 bb/100

To calculate the PTBB/100
6.62/2 = 3.31 PTBB/100

A quicker method to work out either the bb/100 or PTBB/100 is:

(Winnings / # of hands) * 100 / bb or
(Winnings / # of hands) * 100 / BB

I hope this helps.

In your opinion what stats should a multi-tabling fullring NLHE grinder have.
i.e VPIP/PRF/AF/WTSD%
