Does anyone have charts for starting hands heads by position up or even order of hands?

I know any Ace and any pair is valuable but I cannot find more specific guidelines.

I found order of hands heads up here

  • I'd argue that charts are not a great idea in general, because they don't take account for other factors. I can find some charts on heads-up for you, but they're not modern/up to date so I'm not sure how representative of the modern game they would be. As a general piece of advice, on the button you want to open or call any pairs, any suited connector, any unsuited connectors from like 89+. From the BB you can cut out the lower Aces(little tight though) and the unsuited connectors like 89, and cut out the lower suited connectors. I can expand a bit on this if you want me to. – Grinch91 Jul 7 '17 at 10:20
  • @Grinch91 Might as well is will be better than my answer – paparazzo Jul 16 '17 at 13:58
  • I'll see if I can dig out some charts later for you then :) – Grinch91 Jul 17 '17 at 8:26
  • @Grinch91 You are a mod? – paparazzo May 13 '18 at 17:43
  • Yup, I sure am! Also I had forgot to post on this in the past, my bad. – Grinch91 May 14 '18 at 13:47

I am just sort of guessing here. I won't accept my own answer here.

Because of the blinds you need to be playing most of the hands

If the BB is playing 3/4 that is through 65s on that list and kind of makes sense.

SB it depends on betting from BB.

The power of suited connectors goes down but they come in based on the number of hands you need to play.

I am a regular poker player and I play poker tournaments almost every day. Also I have a big heads up experience. I read 3 poker books including Mathematics of Poker and Intelligent Poker Player.

In headsd-up it is recommended to open raise from Small Blind with 70% of hands. You can learn best 70% of hands downloading free popular poker calculator Equilab. As you are a beginner 70% may seem too many for you. But it is so because when you are a Small Blind in heads up you will be in position at postflop. Playing postflop in position is more profitable.

There are no well known static preflop ranges for heads up that became a standard.

Personally I like to open raise from SB no limit heads up with 60% of hands: 22+,A2s+,K2s+,Q2s+,J2s+,T3s+,95s+,85s+,75s+,64s+,54s,A2o+,K2o+,Q5o+,J7o+,T7o+,97o+,87o

And I raise not to 2BB but to 2.5 or 3BB. It is not new and many players plays approximately so. It is normal to call open raise of SB from BB with 65% of hands. Calling from BB should be tighter than SB raises. I call with 55% of hands: 33+,A2s+,K2s+,Q2s+,J3s+,T5s+,95s+,85s+,75s+,65s,A2o+,K4o+,Q6o+,J7o+,T7o+,97o+,87o

The range for 3BET from BB positoin is different almost for any player. It is normal to 3Bet with 25-10% of hands. Sometimes it is better not to 3BET with AA, KK, QQ. Many heads up players does not 3Bet at all.

I suppose you are interested in the most popular no limit mode. There are in internet precalculted push/fold charts for heads up and not only heads up. How to play with all-in in a late trounament stage when effective stacks are less than 12BB. I know 2 commercial applications for calculating perfect preflop push/fold range tables: Holdem Resource Calculator and Icmizer 2.
