win rate

I was just curious when it comes to online what is considered a good win rate. I saw somewhere that 6-8/100 BB is considered good but I'm just trying to get a sense of it. I looked at the win rate of some of the better players in my hud and they were much higher but I'm not sure how many hands is a useful sample. I also know that win rate is a fluid thing because of variance etc. but would be interested in hearing perspectives on this.

    I'm more focused on improving my win rate, not the win rates of others.

    It is very fluid and requires a large number of hands to be meaningful. It is more common to look at bb/100 NOT BB/100.

    It also depends on sites/stakes. 10bb/100 is doable for small stakes on US-facing sites for a strong player but 2-3bb/100 on Pokerstars 500z+ is even more impressive.

    I was only looking at theirs for comparison.

    Yup. It's very common to see winrate potential quickly lower around 100NL or 200NL, but at that point you should be looking at $/hour instead of just bb/100 imo.

    You need a big sample size to have even decent winrate data on a player (like, 40K+ hands of just them), so don't put too much stock into the winrates of players you have limited info on.
