What is a good estimate of hands per hour for: (all with an average dealer)

1. SD - 1 person
2. SD - 2 people
3. SD - 3 people
4. SD - 4 people
5. SD - 5 People
6. DD - 1 person
7. DD - 2 people
8. DD - 3 people
9. DD - 4 people
10. DD - 5 people

Not too worried about any other games because I will be wonging in and out of games with more decks.

I read that heads up can get close to 200 hands/hr with a good dealer, and that it drops significantly after adding a person. I have been keeping track of winnings and losses on a spreadsheet I created and want to make sure my estimates are as close to accurate as possible.

Also what are the affects of hand shuffeling and automatic shuffeling as far as # of hands.

Seems like you’ve done lot of homework pal. I usually don’t seat more than 30 mins at a stretch as I have observed that once I sit for longer duration I start loosing my money pretty quickly. Maybe you can call that superstition but that’s how I play.

I have never seen it going to 200 hands/hr but I don’t deny it. Its entirely possible if one is too too fast. I usually prefer to share table with other players so generally I have observed rate of around 20 hands/hr at max.

Well I had seen a quick play counter during my visit to a casino in vegas. They played really fast but still 200 hands/hr wasn’t their rate it seems a bit overrated. But anyhow I like to play my game in relaxed mood and hence I generally observe around 15 hands/hr

Well guys, I too believe that playing 200 hands/hr is nearly impossible but that is what I had read. I haven’t seen anyone play at that rate nor I suggest anyone to try it. But anyhow thanks for the replies.

200 hands/hr isn’t even remotely possible. But in my local casino, we have a fast betting BJ table where they allow only 30 seconds for placing their bets and the dealer is quite fast in his approach. I have observed rate of about 35 hands/hr when 2-3 guys are playing.

WOW I have never played for more than 15 hands/hr. 35 hands/hr is indeed amazing. Would love to watch few games on such a table.

Me too! I usually like to play my game pretty slow! I have a drink with me which I keep on sipping. Couple of buddies often accompany me so chatting is also going on. So for me its more about experience rather than some statistics.

An average dealer with 5 players would be generally dealing at rate of around 15 hands per hour. Unless all the 5 players are fast, there’s no way that an average dealer can do anything more than 20 hands per hour.

I am pretty much comfortable with dealers who can deal about 15 hands/hour. Any higher would make me nervous and uncomfortable so whenever I choose a table, this is one of the main criteria!

Get a super-fast BJ machine, I could play 500 hands an hour. When I start winning, the backroom tightens the screws.

Actually, you will average about 60 hands per hour at a crowded or full table.  Think about it… most players take far less than 10 seconds to play their hand, so you play about one hand per minute.  Head-to-head runs about 100 hands per hour.  And if a continuous shuffel machine is used the rate of player is even faster.
