Chapter 9: Preflop Theory (106 pages)
This chapter presents a series of theory concepts that demonstrate how to use preflop decisions to encourage the most profitable postflop situations for different starting hand types.
It examines preflop decisions in the context of the situations they set up with reference to the seven key parameters of a postflop situation - number of opponents, position, stack-to-pot ratio, initiative, board texture, opponent tendencies, and image.
It includes an overview of decision making from different positions and versus different opponent types, including opening ranges, cold-calling and 3-betting ranges, and what to do facing 3-bets in and out of position.
