No-Limit 6-max Pre-flop Ranges - Overview

Ahead of this lesson you should have read:

In this module you will be introduced to the pre-flop ranges for the most relevant game situations in a No-Limit 6-max game. You will find the open raising range for each position and the call 3-bet and 4-bet ranges for optimal play against 3-bets from the different positions.

Additionally, you will get your own 3-bet ranges for each position. At the end of this lesson, you will be able to see which basic ideas and assumptions have led to the creation of these ranges.

The ranges shown here are just the foundation on which you can build your own basic game plan. You may need to make changes to them to fit your standard opponent.

You can use these ranges as the foundation for your own basic game plan. For that you need to look at the standard opponent at your limit and check if the ranges can be applied reasonably against him.

In order to develop a full game plan from your basic game plan, you need to think of adaptions to your different types of villains and you need to know which possible weaknesses your basic game plan has.

Creation of these ranges

1.5 million hands of NL200 were analyzed for the creation of these ranges. The standard opponent was created based on a database analysis and the experience of several successful players.

After these two steps the ranges were adjusted to reflect the characteristics and tendencies of this standard opponent. Extra care was taken to ensure that the ranges shown here also serve as a good foundation against other types of opponents.
