Thoughts on these ranges as a baseline before table adjustments? I combined UTG/MP and BTN/SB just to keep things as simple as possible for myself. I'm curious if people are strongly against any hands included/excluded here.

UTG/MP:
AA-44,AKs-A2s,KQs-K9s,QJs-Q9s,JTs-J9s,T9s,98s,87s,AKo-ATo,KQo-KJo

CO:
AA-22,AKs-A2s,KQs-K6s,QJs-Q8s,JTs-J8s,T9s-T8s,98s-97s,87s-86s,76s,65s,54s,AKo-A9o,KQo-KTo,QJo

BTN/SB:
AA-22,AKs-A2s,KQs-K2s,QJs-Q5s,JTs-J6s,T9s-T6s,98s-96s,87s-86s,76s-75s,65s-64s,54s,AKo-A2o,KQo-K7o,QJo-Q9o,JTo

Too much info to address. you need to start with one position and then perhaps open things up. it's like trying to remember pi to the 100th place!! which of course is "0" :deal::cool:

Thank you for posting.

2 Nl is a game with a lot of calling and big 3 bet sizes with the top 5% of hands so your EP open ranges are too wide as a standard open but could be fine to adjust to passive tables.

EP standard
AA-77 AKs-ATs A5s KQ-KTs etc The issue with opening the small suited connectors is getting over flushed as our V call Axs-T9s all the time.

Reverse implied odds and equity realization are the reasons we open tighter. The reason we do not open the full range of AXs KXs is the dominance factor as many players will call IP AX and KX better hands when you open.

At 2 NL standard table it is a show down game we win show down games by having tighter ranges by the river. When we start too wide EP we will not be able to refine our range well, often enough.

Hope this helps.
