# PokerJuice Preflop Ranges

The ProPokerTools preflop ranking is a solid start and they are fine and useful in a lot of situations. But there are situations where we would like to select preflop ranges that better reflect the ranges that a lot of players use in the real world.

For that reason we have created the PokerJuice Preflop Ranges. Theses ranges are less equity-based and more based on playability.

We have divided them into four main groups:

  • First In Ranges (or Opening Ranges)
  • 3bet Ranges in Position
  • 3bet Ranges out of Position
  • 4bet Ranges

# First In Ranges

These are the ranges that a lot of players use in a standard 6-max game:

Name Combos % of all hands
$12 32486 12.00%
$15 40620 15.00%
$20 54148 20.00%
$25 67684 25.00%
$30 81226 30.00%
$40 108290 40.00%
$50 135373 50.00%

# 3bet ranges in position

These are the ranges that a lot of players use when they 3bet in position in a standard 6-max game:

Name Combos % of all hands
$3b2i 5424 2.00%
$3b4i 10818 4.00%
$3b6i 16242 6.00%
$3b8i 21658 8.00%
$3b10i 27080 10.00%
$3b12i 32492 12.00%
$3b15i 40604 15.00%

# 3bet ranges out of position

These are the ranges that a lot of players use when they 3bet out of position in a standard 6-max game:

Name Combos % of all hands
$3b2o 5424 2.00%
$3b4o 10818 4.00%
$3b6o 16242 6.00%
$3b8o 21658 8.00%
$3b10o 27080 10.00%
$3b12o 32492 12.00%
$3b15o 40604 15.00%

What is the difference?

The difference between between 3bet range in and out of position is that the in position ranges are a bit more equity based (has more AA, KK) and the out of position ranges are a bit more playability based (less AA, KK and more connectors).

# 4bet ranges

These are the ranges that a lot of player use when they 4-bet in a standard 6-max game:

Name Combos % of all hands
$4b2 5404 2.00%
$4b3 8110 3.00%
$4b4 10834 4.00%
$4b5 13530 5.00%
$4b6 16240 6.00%
