Typically at a 10-handed table, early in a tourney, the button makes it one full round and one more player. 33 hands per hour. If the table is fairly experienced, people are paying attention, and no TV table wannabes are practicing their hollywooding, more like 36 and sometimes better. If you have 2 very inexperienced players who are afraid to move until the dealer tells them to, 1 player who won't look at his cards until it's his turn and then needs 10 seconds to decide to fold 72 in a raised pot, 1 player with a hoodie+shades+iPod+cap who has to stare at the table for 10 seconds and give a speech before doing anything every action, and 1 crank who has to call the floor every 4th hand because he wants JRandomTourist's hand declared dead because JRandom said "I'm not sure I can call here", it can plummet to the low 20's and below.
This pretty much sums up my experience, too.
