Beginners and experienced players alike are often unsure of what hands should be played preflop. In Six Plus Hold’em where hand equities run close it’s not so obvious if a hand is strong enough to be played or not.
Only playing premium hands is simply not a viable strategy, because the cost of antes per round is high and you’ll often be getting a very good price to see a flop. Conversely playing too loose can be costly too, e.g. seeing too many flops multi-way with hands that are often dominated.
After a lot of work, we have created a set of ranges for deciding to play a hand first-in, meaning no players have entered the pot before you. It covers every position from UTG to CO, on which hands are profitable to Limp / Jam, Limp / Call, Raise / Fold etc. It is meant to be used while playing 100a to 200a deep. In the future, we will release more charts to cover other situations, but having a proper first-in range is fundamental and about 25% of the hands you play is first-in.
The starting hand chart comes in PDF format for $19 and it features:
- First-in ranges for five positions (UTG/UTG+1, MP, HJ, CO)
- A three page guide with valuable strategy content and chart explanations like (balanced ranges, table dynamics, positional play)
Below is an example of how the first-in range would look like, together with the explanation of when to Limp / Call, Limp / Jam, etc.
