Feeling good and need help with figures!!!

Well i've finally started doing things a bit more correctly. By this i mean i have finally set up a poker tracker system (poker tracker) and have started playing at a site that gives me rakeback and started playing there. It's funny how i seem to play more sensibly when i keep looking at my tracker!!!

So far i have played 1154 hands at $1 - $2 short handed and have won $606.70 with a 13.14 BB/100 hands.

I realise thats not brilliant but it's a profit!! I never realised how much you actually paid in rake.. $223 so far... That to me shows that a $600 profit isn't great. I will receive my rakeback on that though.

I know it is a very very low sample size i have, how many hands do you need to play before you have a good sample size??

What is a good BB/100 Hand rate???
