How to Use the 6 max Preflop Range Charts
There are poker charts for the three most common types of preflop situation.
The Raise First In (RFI) Ranges show which hands to play in each position when all other players have folded to you.
The Facing a Raise (vs RFI) Ranges show which hands to play from each position when one player acting before you raises first in.
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).
These 6 max 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.
Due to the higher rake, you will notice these charts do not have much flat calling of open raises in position. The higher the rake, the less profitable calling becomes. It is generally preferable to play a 3bet or fold only strategy when facing a raise in position in these games. This is due to the increased incentive to win the pot preflop and not pay any rake. Another advantage is that a raise or fold preflop strategy is easier to remember and implement at the tables, especially when multitabling.
