The Open Range Multi-Table tool is particularly useful if you play on different tables. For example, imagine you're playing a tournament, but also a cash game table. At several points during your session, you'll want to know whether or not you can open a hand in a given situation. Rather than using two web pages to obtain your results (one for the cash game, one for your tournament), you can take advantage of this tool, which will give you your results for each table. So it's easier for you.

Open Range Multi-Tables

For example, here on the left, you have a short-handed cash game table (6-max) with a full stack (100 bb). On the right, you have your tournament table where you have antes to pay. What's more, as the tournament is fairly advanced, you have between 20 and 35 big blinds.

The use of this tool, like all the tools on the push-or-fold.com, is very simple and intuitive.

First choose your table type:

Choice of table type

For the current example, we will be in 6-max (short-handed).

Then choose your position on the table:

Choice of position

Here, we'll be in the MP (middle position).

As we're playing cash games, we won't have any antes to pay, so we're not going to indicate any.

Number of antes

Finally, we're going to indicate the size of our stack in blinds. Since we'll have a full stack (always advisable when playing cash games), we'll choose the 100 bb) option.

Number of blinds

You can do the same with table 2 by entering your tournament details. When you click on "Table 1" or "Table 2", you will see the opening range for the given situation:

Opening range table

You can toggle between tables by clicking on "Table 1" and "Table 2" alternately.

The opening ranges you see are GTO (Game Theory Optimal) ranges.

Don't forget to consult the colour chart to find out how to play the specific hands on the chart.

Results

The hands in red are the top hands in our range. With these hands, we'll never back down and we'll play aggressively. If a player 3-bets us, we'll 4-bet. If a player 5-bets us, we'll push all in. The hands in green will be our 4-bet bluff hands. The reason we'll choose matching aces here is that we'll have a lot of fold equity. By having an ace in hand, we know that the chances of our opponent having AA are much lower. If a player pushes all in after our 4-bet, there's a good chance that his hand will dominate our hand. As a result, even if you have a 4-bet, you'll have peace of mind. It's also worth bearing in mind that 4-bets will make our opponents fold at a high frequency and that every time our opponents fold, we win a considerable pot without needing to go to the showdown. In the long run, these bluffs will pay off and make you harder to play and less predictable. The hands in grey will be the most marginal hands to play. When should you play them?

On an aggressive table full of good players, you can simply fold these hands. But if you're at a table full of passive players and you're feeling confident, you'll be able to open them without a problem. The hands will have a very slim profitability in the long run, if not neutral, but if you have a skill advantage over your opponents, you can probably make them profitable.
