It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
That just means you are winning 39.52 BBs for every 100 hands you play. It's a way to level the return metrics independent of whether the blinds are $2, $10, $100 etc.. So if you were playing $1/$2, for example, you'd be winning about $79 on average for every 100 hands you play (not considering rake in a typical cardroom because we don't rake hands on the site).
My understanding, which could easily be wrong, is that BB/100 Hands is typically an online metric. The equivalent metric for live play, at least in times past, has been BB/Hour. So if you want to figure that out, you would figure out how many hands your room deals in an hour, and divide it up. So in the previous example, with the $79.00 per 100 hands rate, you might figure that your local casino deals around 25 hands per hour. So you are coming in at around $20 per hour, before rake, tips, and other expenses.
