These ranges are based on GTO principles, aiming to balance both value and bluffing frequencies. They prioritize strong starting hands for raising first in and facing a raise, while also incorporating speculative hands like suited connectors for potential big-pot hands. Adjustments to the ranges can be made based on your observations of specific table dynamics, opponent tendencies, and your own playing style.

Remember that GTO strategies provide a solid foundation, but exploiting opponent tendencies and adjusting your play based on real-time information is crucial for maximizing profits. Continually evaluate the game, adapt to changing dynamics, and make informed decisions based on the available information. Good luck at the tables!
