How to calculate your bb/100 or PTBB/100?
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:
$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.
