Heads up Hyper Pre-flop Charts

Heads-up Hyper preflop ranges

Heads-up Hyper Turbo Tournaments (HU-HT) are fast-paced 1on1 poker tournaments that you can play on most online poker sites with a buy-in of up to $1000. Headsup hypers are an action-packed game, full of wide ranges clashing against each other. While the higher stakes are full of hungry sharks, the lower stakes are relatively uncompetitive. The win-rates for this format can be anything from 2-8% return on investment per buy-in, so they can be very profitable as the average duration of those games is around 2 minutes only.

Heads up hypers require one, that wants to be profitable, to play wide ranges in and out of position. Pre-flop, you rarely “want to” fold as this is already a loss as you either got to pay the big blind or small blind in each round. You want to play 85-100% of all hands depending on your position and the specific spot as you don’t want the blinds to eat your stack.

As we are in a giveaway mode and want to help you to become profitable in this action-filled format, we are giving you GTO preflop-ranges for ALL stack-depths. The GTO solution suggests to play a mixed strategy with limps, and min-raises. In the charts you see three colours, of which Green stands for limp, red for raise and blue for fold.
