What is the difference between preflop ranges and preflop strategy charts? How do I know what's right for me?

Ranges tell you the percentage of combinations of hands you have at that part of the game tree, whilst strategy charts tell you at what frequency you should take an action.
For example: 8max 20bb, UTG opens, folds to BTN who flats AA 80%, and goes all in 20%. In this instance BTN flats, BB jams, and UTG folds. The calling range for BTN would now show 80% AA (as that is the total combinations of AA BTN has), whereas the preflop chart would show Call 100%, advising that for all combos of AA BTN has, he should call at 100% frequency. Preflop ranges are useful for both preflop and postflop work in PIO, whereas preflop charts are used for preflop strategy advice only.
You can view both preflop ranges and strategy charts in RangeConverter Online Viewer. You don’t need to have any GTO poker solver for that.
