# calculating quick ranges

This has probably been covered somewhere but I was wondering what kind of range percentages you can look for when facing the basic types of players.

So for example if you tag someone as being loose agg what percentage of hands is he likely to open raise with and what is he likely to 3bet with.

I know position counts but are there any general rules you should apply when using the equilator?

So like a super tight player may only 3bet with like the top 2% of hands but a maniac player might 3bet as high as 40%?

An open raising nit will maybe stick to around the 10% mark but a loose agg player will open raise like 30%?

I know you can not be exact when using stereotypes but I think it would be handy to just have like a guideline so you can calculate basic ranges against new opponents.

Hope that makes sense

This might not be EXACTLY what you want, but it might get you started:

Ok so can you tell me if this is about right then for a 6 sided table

Rock/Nit :- open raise 5% button raise 8% 3bet 2%

Tag :- open raise 10% button raise 20% 3bet 5%

Lag :- open raise 20% button raise 40% 3bet 10%

Maniac :- open raise 35% button raise 60% 3bet 20%

For 6-Max those seem still a bit tight for the nits tags and lags

Some maniacs don't open-raise this much, but limp/call a lot pre

Do you have Rasie-first-in by position on your HUD?

I hope some others chime in, since this is an interesting question, and I'm not sure I'm really the best person to be trying to answer.

I pretty much agree with what VS said.

But there is one flaw in what you are saying imo. The button raise doesn't mean anything when looking if one is a TAG, LAG,… I'm playing 22/20 VP\$P/PFR (wild guess but should be something around that). I think I'm considered more a TAG player but I do raise 60%+ on the button. People are folding way to much in the blinds so it's just to profitable to not raise a lot of hands.
