Well I see a lot of videos here on the site and I have played frequently. And a doubt has been haunting me. I see in the videos the teachers talking about for example being in Botton as HERO and VILAO is in CO, and that I could open more hands against CO, but what I do not understand is. In practice even when I'm playing, the guys only enter the game with high cards, always KA, KK, KQ, JQ, AQ, AA, so it goes .. be in SB..BB .. UTG .. MID .. or HJ .. CO and BOTTON. so these ranges of hands that in the videos speak to play like that and roast from such a position I do not think it works in practice sincerely. If I were to follow this already would have reset my bank .. So why do you talk to play that way? I honestly do not understand this range of hands. They talk, if you're in BOTTON and the guy in UTG your range of hands is better than his, so it increases ... but for me those things do not make sense.

When you are on the button your hand 'range' increases. This basically means more hole cards you receive are playable because you are last to act on every street post-flop. You can see what players in front of you do and base your actions on that, which is usually an advantage.
