There's about 90% of the suited side of the chart that lags would tend to call with from my experience with playing vs the bad lags along with some non suited one gappers that haven't been highlighted.
I don't think it's really possible to assign a set range like this per group as all individuals will be different and some will play certain hands others won't etc etc
I'd be one of those players personally who completely mixes it up and nearly any single hand will be good enough to make a play with. It all depends on how you perceive the opening raiser vs how they perceive you imo
Edit: what program is OP using?
ya i agree, but it's really important to have a set of decent default ranges. so when you go into a readless table, you can somewhat play well, otherwise you are just kind of making it up as you go along. So having a set default range you 3bet or call or raise with will help you be able to play many more tables at a higher winrate than you could if you just go in blind and make it up, as you have to think more about it, which costs you time.
once you have reads you then adjust your default ranges to make more optimal lines/plays. This is obviously not the only way to do things, but i think it's a really good way to go, but takes some time to set it up.
Overall agree that one set of ranges does not fit all, but without any reads, you don't have info to go on anyways, so you kind of always have a set default play, with more reads like they are loose/tight you can adjust the default ranges, and then with even more info, make way more profitable lines vs more specific opponant types but as mentioned you need the info to start with.
It's generally not a great idea to think too hard about how players percieve you, unless you are playing against known regs for many many hands it doesn't really come into play much. it's pretty hard to work out what fish think, so best to just think about their range and not level yourself.
I think he is using "pokerstove" but i could be wrong. There are plenty of better programs out there, but they all cost money. i think equilab is slightly better than stove, but it's really a preferance thing they both do the same.
