      What is your bottom cold calling range vs EP-MP open?
      AQo+ / AJs+ / all pockets? Or fold SPP and call like 77+?

      If SB / BB seems passive players preflop and are not huge fish

      MP - 19/16/20k hands/EP MP Rfi 18% - fold to 3bet 50% / 4bet 15%
      BB - 27/0/22 h

      What is your bottom cold calling range vs EP-MP open?

      How deep are we? What is the history between us? Who is the blinds? What is our history between us there? What is EP's opening range? How does he react to 3bets? How does he play postflop in single raised pots? What about in 3bet pots if he calls 3bets often? What is HERO's position?!

      You basically need to answer all those questions to construct a calling range. Most of those answers are not found in stats either so it's hard to say just from presenting some raw numbers. I'd say you actually need to evaluate your skill and call based on that. The deeper you are the more you can call IP and leverage your positional advantage. That's in theory, you also need to be able to do it in practice.

      I think something like JJ-66,AQs-ATs,KJs+,QJs,JTs,T9s,98s,AQo is a good starting point on which you can definitely build on for 100bb stacks.
