      What do you think about my opening ranges?

      UTG2: 66+, AJs+, KQs, QJs, JTs, T9s, 98s, AQo+

      UTG3: 55+, AJs+, KQs, QJs, JTs, T9s, 98s, AJo+(sometimes I open ATs, if there are bad players at the table).

      MP1:22+, ATs+, KQs, QJs, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s, ATo+, KQo(I don't open ATo, KQo and 76s always, depends on the table).

      MP2: 22+, A9s+, KJs+, QTs+, J9s+, T8s+, 97s+, 87s, 76s, 65s, ATo+, KQo( 65s and A9s not always opening)

      MP3: 22+, A8s+, KTs+, QTs+, J9s+, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+, 76s, 65s, 54s, ATo+, KJo+(KJo, A8s, 54s, 86s depends on the table).

      CO: 22+, A2s+, K9s+, Q9s+, J8s+, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+, 75s+, 64s+, 54s, A8o+, KTo+, QTo+, J9o+, T8o+, 98o.

      BU: 22+, A2s+, K8s+, Q8s+, J7s+, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+, 75s+, 64s+, 54s, A5o+, K9o+, Q8o+, J8o+, T8o+, 97o+, 87o, 76o, 65o

      SB: 22+, A2s+, K9s+, Q9s+, J9s+, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+ 76s, ATo+, KTo+, QTo+, J9o+, T8o+, 98o.

      Stealing ranges depends on players sitting in blinds.

      I'm isolating with stronger range in late position and with strong range in SB and BB(exeption when SB limps). Of course vs huge fishes I'm isolating a lot ip and less oop.

      What are your opening ranges in FR tables?

      I'm playing NL16.

      How loose do the NL16 games usually play? I assume they are fairly nitty?

      If table is nitty I'll just open AJs KQs AQ+ 22+ JTs T9s from EP, and add AJo/ATs/KQo/KJs in MP.

      Assuming FR is as nitty as I remembered it to be, I think your BTN range is way too tight. I'm very sure you can get away with a 70%+ opening range and not get punished for it (people will 3bet you about 10-12% at the very most which is an insufficient adjustment vs such a wide opening range). I also think you can open 30%-35% with a min-raise from the CO.

      remember, at FR their primary mistake is to fold too much. So exploit this by widening your ranges significantly, especially in late positions. SB opening range is highly dependent on BB, but I think you can open 50% by default vs the average opponent.

      Yeah, NL16 are pretty nitty overall. I will try to losen up my range. Thanks for your advice, mbml :)
