  • Misunderstanding range advantage question on J-6-6 topic (MTT masterclass)

    The question was “would you bet more frequently on J-6-6 from UTG vs BB or BTN vs BB?” — I figured BTN but it said it was wrong since UTG has a bigger range advantage.

    so I think I’m not understanding the concept of “range advantage” here.

    wouldn’t BTN’s range as PFR have more 6s than UTG?

    Confusing range and nut advantage. More 6s means nut advantage. Range advantage is overall, higher percentage of better cards. UTG plays much better hands than BTN.

      Particularly for range advantage, don't think in terms of how many combos of something we have, think in terms of what percentage of our overall range are those combos. EP v BB will almost always have a stronger equity advantage than LP v BB because EP's overall range is much tighter, so strong top pairs and overpairs will always be a larger portion of our range compared to LP

        So range advantage basically just means whoever has the tightest range? (Think I'm still not getting it...)

        Edit: oh wait, I think I see it. So it's basically whose range has the higher equity on a specific flop, or street?

            Download Equilab (it's free).

            Then key in some different ranges and flops and get an idea of how the range advantage can change.

            Don't just enter random ranges. Stick to actual opening charts like UTG v BB spots, or CO v BTN for example. See which has the range advantage on different types of boards: high, low, connected, paired etc.
