Each video gives detailed advice on your preflop ranges from the Small Blind and Big Blind when defending against typical opening ranges. Although the entire video series focuses on post flop play defending your blinds passively there is a lot of preflop advice regarding 3-bet ranges too.

The focus of the videos lies then on defending passively by cold calling preflop, and each video covers in detail the postflop play on typical board textures from the Small and the Big Blind in order to have balanced and game theory optimal ranges.

Minimal variations to your holecards and the board texture provide a lot of useful advice: how do certain board textures interact with preflop ranges? How does it affect your post flop lines? What adjustments do you need to make if you there is a flush draw? How do you need to adapt if the board is 986 instead of T97 or JT8?

These permutations provide not only concrete advice, but will help you understand the priniciples of post flop play and to construct your balanced ranges on your own.
