      When I whip up Equilab to calculate equity against a villain; VPIP = Range right?So I'm sitting at a table. I notice after 50 hands villian's range is 35. Giving him benifit of the doubt I give him a range of 25% in Equilab and play hands which have positive equity right?I'm stupid and befuddled. Help me clear my thought process.

      To an extent. His VPIP is his overall preflop range from all positions.

      However, if his range is 30% then:

      - raising UTG his range of hands may be the top 15%
      - open raising the button his range of hands may be 45%

      Didn't think of it that way.

      then you also have to narrow down that range according to the postflop actions.
      when you get good at that process you'll be well in your way to pro :f_biggrin:

      to build on what MJPerry said:

      your software that collects the opponents stats may also have more detailed info such as vpip/pfr by position.

      let's take one of my opponents (800+ hand sample)
      overall he's
      vpip 16
      pfr 13

      now by position that breaks down to
      EP - vpip 7 / pfr 7
      MP vpip 6 / pfr 4
      CO vpip 16 / pfr 15
      BTN vpip 33 / pfr 28
      SB vpip 38 / pfr 27
      BB vpip 11 / pfr 8

      as you can see, his "overall" averages out to near his CO stats,
      but the other positions don't look much like his "average".
