BB Pre-flop Ranges

The big blind is the second-worst position at the table. In this lesson, you will find the typical pre-flop ranges for playing from the big blind in a No-Limit 6-max game. Compared to the small blind, you have better pot odds for just calling a raise and your call usually closes the action, making sure that nobody behind you can go for a squeeze.

You will also learn which characteristics and tendencies of the standard opponent played a part in the creation of these ranges.
