      My answer is going to be very similar to the previous post. Look at your 2 players in the blind. How do they play?

      If they are aggro, maybe you can tighten up your range, aim for a 50-55% opening range. Play with Equilator and find the top 55% of hands to play.

      If there is a fish or they are just tight and passive, maybe you can aim for a 65-70% opening range. Again, play with equilator. The top 75% of hands should contain every single suited hand, maybe the top 70% excludes the weakest suited hands like 72s.

      You may want to take some screenshots with the Alt+Print Screen function, then you can paste it into MS Paint and upload it to an image hosting service like imageshack and link it here so we can discuss about which hands are stronger or weaker to open with.

      Remember, your opening ranges should change based on table dynamics, and you should not have static ranges, if you want to maximise your winrate.
