Post | Shmiro27 posted in PLO: Learning opening ranges

Hi all,
I am a beginner in PLO and just started the From The Ground Up PLO course. I find it quite difficult to learn the opening ranges properly as Emty just explains the ranges’ concepts and there is no definite way to self check if certain holdings should be opened. Any suggestion on this, without paying for another tool?

In addition, can u help re these specific hands from a recent session, should I have opened them?
HJ - QsJd10h7s
HJ - KsJh9s6h

Regarding the last paragraph - I agree completely, but doesn’t it actually mean that we should narrow our BB defense range instead of widening it? (all blinds defense videos I have seen suggested defending very wide from the blinds.

Hi All,

I encountered the concept of MDF in a few videos, but have a problem with it:
It was explained that if, for example, Button raises to 2.5bb (no ante) and SB folds, then the MDF for BB is 1-2.5/4=37.5%, because if BB folds more than 37.5%, the Button will make an immediate profit by raising ATC.

However, I think this is a rather narrow way to look at this spot since it disregards postflop play - if BB defends more narrow than the MDF, Button may make profit pre flop, but when BB does defend (with a narrower and stronger range) he is expected to have better EV and therefore profit more postflop, compensating the loss preflop.

Am I missing something?

Thanks for this awesome content!

In the end of this video u said that on the J73 board we should raise with a merged range since villain is betting with a merged range himself, and we should be calling with some medium strength hands like 99.
Since we also raise our VG hands and even top pairs, doesn’t that make our calling range really weak? (and therefore easy to play against)

Also, just want to make sure - the reason that we raise KJ on this board is to protect our raising range right? I mean, we don’t raise 99 but do raise both the J and the 7 for value and protection. So this argument should be valid for 99 as well. So the reason we don’t raise 99 and do raise KJ is to make our range stronger?

Hi, I have the same issue as OP and would appreciate to delay my free trial membership as well.
Thanks in advance
