I have kept records of our trips:
Playing 1/2 nlh
I am happy when I come away even. My DW does MUCH better (4 digit wins typically) and is more consistent. You could say I play for comps (the $1 per hour they give you towards food)
. We have a great time, eat some good food, drink for free, and (used to) see some great shows.
$50/hr consistently seems to be a bit high, but I guess it depends how many hours you play before you double through a few times.
