Learning these MTT poker ranges and implementing them at the table is an essential part of forming a winning strategy at short stack tournament poker.
These preflop ranges are taken from the No Limp solution, meaning that the player to raise first in only has the option to raise or fold, and not limp.

How to Use the 8 max MTT Preflop Range Charts

There are poker charts for the three most common types of preflop situation.

  1. 1 - The Raise First In (RFI) Ranges show which hands to play in each position when all other players have folded to you.
  2. 2 - The Facing a Raise (vs RFI) Ranges show which hands to play from each position when one player acting before you raises first in.
  3. 3 - Facing a 3bet (vs 3bet) Ranges show which hands to play when you have raised first in and a player acting after you re-raises you (3bets) all in.

    There are also small 3bets at 20bb, but these are less common than the all in 3bet and so these preflop charts only show the response to the all in. 
    The online range viewer has all these preflop ranges and more.

These MTT preflop ranges are simplified versions of the strategy output by GTO poker solvers.
GTO strategy involves a lot of mixing, which means that a particular hand combo may be raised 18% and folded 72%.
Each poker hand chart has been simplified so that the frequency of an action for each hand combo is rounded to the nearest 50%. If you see a hand with a mix of colours, it means you should take one action half the time and the other action half the time. You can either use a randomizer (e.g. one action if high card first, other action if small card first) or base you action on your reads of your opponent, e.g. if they play too tight or too loose.
This makes it easier to learn a solid base strategy and implement in game, without losing too much accuracy.
