When you’re sitting at the table, it can be easy to drift from your standard preflop ranges out of inattention, boredom, or inaccuracy. And if you’re new to the concept of open ranges, it can be hard to keep track of all the combos and parts of ranges spread in percentage form across a range matrix. Yeah, you’re not alone if that made your head spin.

Luckily, Doug Hull made these smartphone-friendly preflop range charts for ease of reference at the table. Adapted Ed Miller’s sound open range strategies outlined in The Course, you can rest assured these ranges will not lead you astray.

Still getting a feel for how to use open ranges in your preflop strategy? Watch this video by Doug Hull in which he analyzes an opponent’s open range to determine whether a Red Chipper’s call of villain’s 3-bet was the right move:

      Thats true! Sometimes our coaches don’t make it all the way through the hand if they have already done the analysis they wanted on previous streets. Sorry if it was frustrating not to see how it played out, I suppose it’s an exercise in not being results oriented! ūüôā

      Red = 3-bet; yellow = call; green = raise. We just added a key above the charts. Thanks for pointing that out!

    Could these apply to both cash games and tournaments?

      In early stages with deeper effective stacks, yes. As stack sizes drop in a tournament, no.

      The article was finished. Images required pinch-to-zoom when they are large – that’s simply a limitation of mobile devices.

      They can work for 6max as well, yes (especially the right column)

    These charts are easy to understand, download fine, and work on a phone. Cut out the whining, people.

    According to the key, red is a 3-bet, yellow is a call, but green is undefined. I’m sure white is a fold, but there’s too much green for green to be 3bet-as-a-bluff. Is green supposed to be raise-or-call? If not, what is it supposed to be?

    Are there any MTT charts lying around for various stages of the tournament here on RCP? I’m working on constructing ranges for each position for early, mid and late stages, for myself but am having quite a rough time finding relevant information on ideal ranges and reasons behind them. Young did a decent video on the mid stages which can be altered by preference but not finding much more than that, maybe I need to dig deeper?

      Young’s “Establishing an MTT 3-bet range video” for the mid and close to the late stages does add some coverage on top of his previous video but again, quite limited to exactly the middle stages, and doesn’t differentiate between positions.
