# Big blind BvB R table

Okay so following the last thread I took a shot at the Playability editor BvB for Power equilab.

Vs 3bb raise
We need 2/(2+1+3)=33.33% equity

VS 32%

we'd call this

VS 44%

we can call all these:

And around 44%+ is a very common frequency, most regs are used to raising even more as people fold too much.

As it seems loose I've played with R in play ability editor in Power Equilab, got this:

- 7% discount for junk offsuit hands
- 13% discount for offsuit hands
- 9% discount for offsuit higher 1+2 gappers

Using this if we play vs 44% sb steal

1) Vs 3bb:

2) VS 2.5bb:

Is that somewhat realistic/what you use in your games?
How would you change the R table for specific hands in the charts?

In terms of actual strategy we can call all those, and make up 3bet combos simply based on number of value combinations + top of folding hands + hands that benefit from 3betting more than flat like 63s 43s other SCs etc. As people's sizings and opening ranges vary so much BvB getting somewhat accurate playability editor should be the easiest way to actually devise a strategy, as it'll be hard to have one fixed one with so much variety out there.

It's Power Equilab.
You arrive at the ranges by
1) Put villains range
2) Use hand range calculator - set minimum equity, set play ability editor for R (that table I posted) and it gives you the range.

hand range calculator is in normal equilab too (green arrow), the R and playability editor only in power equilab

Since you are in position it's very possible that the R is always at least 100%, and could be more for some hands.

That means we should have pretty much like 5-10% fold in BB any vs 44%+ 3x raise
or 2.5bb and lower vs pretty much any range?

That is very possible. Usually against 3bb open I defend by calling the same % he opens and then 3bet 40% of that number. So against 50% I would defend ~70%. But maybe this is too tight. I guess it also depends on rake. Another good way to figure out if we are defeding too tight is to check out how are you doing with your bottom range. If it's higher than -100bbs/100hands, then you should be playing more loose.

nice post to show really how wide we can play, how can i check this in PT4? can't seem to find a good way to do it, the heatmap visualizer doesn't tell you bb/100 which sucks

I checked my stats BBvSB and my VPIP 46 3B 3Bet 11.7 BB/100 -22, other stats are Raise cbet 13.2 total AF 1.35, fold cbet 38%.

Would appear i'm either calling too much if my villians are tight or not 3betting enough as my VPIP / PFR ratio seems high

only a few k sample though

and I'm slightly over breakeven

BE means 0bbs/100 hands or -100bbs/100 hands?

Hmm, you should check out stats like "call BB vs SB" and "3bet BB vs SB". I use HM2 so not able to help. But you should filter something like Hero is BB, Villain is SB, pot unopened, call pre flop true, and then choose in range selection only crappy hands.

Do any of you guys have any large sample stats on what BB fold to SB steel generally turns up to be?

got1.1mill hands+ what filter would that be specifically (PT4) ?

Expect it to not be even remotely close to levels it should be if R is truly close to 100 even with offsuit hands.

I think it's impossible to build such ranges in GENERAL.

It would be much easier to build such range vs exact villain considering not only preflop factors , but additionaly post flop, because even if we play good preflop, we still have another 3 streets to play. It is shit load of work and I wouldnt bother with this unless smth like NL1k or room with small player pool, where I am spending days with the same guys at the table.

I am writing such opinion because few years ago I heard a story about a guy who was illegaly buying databases and he was working on such thing for month(exact ranges and complete post flop plans, it is probably easier nowadays because of the advanced tools like flopzilla etc)), then he was sitting HS tables and was crushing best regs after that he was disappearing with several or houndreds k\$ (dunno exact numbers) like a ghost.

So if you are BE with buttom range, it means that you should be folding it because of rake
