At approximately 9 tables played simulaneously at stakes from $0.5/1- $5/10 (about 75% from $1/2 and 20% $2/4 with only tiny samples in the outlying limits)
161:33 Hours played
Total Winnings: $4,526
Win Rate: $28.02/hr*
With rakeback, add an additional ~$15/hr, bringing the total to about $43/hr.
That being said, I should add two things:
1) All of these winnings came from Cake Poker, the total actually being $4,753 in 106:25 hours, with the win rate at that particular site being $44.66/hr! Now the main reason for this is that a HUD is not allowable at this site. Until I really have started to learn using one the right way recently, I have found that it has always had a negative impact on my play. Furthermore, sites that do not allow HUDs will necessarily attract worse competition because many multi-tabling sharks simply can not function without them.
2) Although not the largest of sample sizes (approx. 100,000 hands), this should be enough to show that there can be good money made from short-stacking when it is applied well. Currently, I do not know anyone else personally who can say that they make $40/hr+, so this type of money is nothing to scoff at.
In conclusion, I will give the detractors one thing- this type of play is NOT particularly rewarding. However, it is a great thing to do if you have other activities to attend to that require excess brain power or you do not feel like you are at your peak in a given day. In a previous post, I stated that I would not be publishing my strategy, though I am considering offering a seminar to teach this strategy, which I feel can be learned in less than 2 days. If anyone is interested, you know where to find me!
