Why spin and go preflop charts are important?

Preflop is by far the most important street. First, it is the most frequent street because you play 100% of your hands preflop (folds included), and second, it sets the foundation for all future streets. Even small mistakes preflop will add up quickly and your EV will take a big hit over time. Our charts will help you not only avoid big mistakes preflop but also exploit population tendencies to the max.

Understanding the importance of position, recognizing the tendencies of your opponents, and knowing how and when to adapt are crucial skills you have to master to be successful in Spin and Go’s. And with Team Bas Poker’s charts, you will have a great baseline strategy from which you can deviate against different types of opponents.

Size matters!

The size of your stack of course!

The size of your stack dictates the way you should play your hands. Our charts are carefully devided by stack depth to ensure you’re making the best possible adaptations needed, whether you’re deep-stacked or fighting with a shorter stack.

Stop the GTO madness!

What do the most successful Spin and Go poker players have in common? Excellent exploitative abilities! They see GTO more as a baseline to gain a deeper understanding of the game. However, they also understand that this is just the first step of a successful strategy. You need to know your opponents' tendencies, where they deviate from GTO, and then how to counter hard! Our charts embody this principle; we took everything into account while creating these charts. They’re the product of analyzing population tendencies and grinding HRC and GTOWizard for countless hours.

But there's more to these charts than just exploitation — they are designed with simplicity in mind, making them accessible and executable for players of all levels. Beginners will find comfort in the clear, simple, and straightforward structure of the ranges.

For the professional player, these charts provide a baseline understanding of the game’s logic. The more you play, the more you’ll recognize when to stick to the chart and when to deviate from your strategy to maximally exploit your opponent.

Nash Charts. You use them wrong! Do this instead!

One of the worst pieces of advice given by coaches is to use Nash Push/Fold Charts under 10bb. Especially, calling Nash against recreational players is not just a small mistake, it’s a significant blunder when you take everything into account. We consider not just the immediate value or "EDGE" of a hand, but also the Expected Value (EV) of potential future hands.

Understanding the "future game" factor is critical. Nash completely neglects this fact. Try to avoid making marginal calls against players you have an edge on. You won’t be able to extract chips from your opponent if the game is over, right? Our ranges consider not only future EV but also population tendencies. Fish tend to open jam way tighter than Nash, and therefore, we should call tighter than Nash in most cases.

It’s important to recognize that while GTO/NASH ranges have their place, we should aim to exploit these common deviations that give us an edge over our opponents, even when very short stacked.

Premium vs Free charts

What are the differences between our free charts and our premium charts? The free charts are kept very basic and simple, easy to understand and to execute, with beginner and intermediate players in mind. They are suited for low stakes and are based on fish population stats. The premium charts go more in-depth. You have more stack sizes available, and you have ranges separated into vs Fish and vs Reg ranges. These are more complex and refined, while still keeping simplicity and executability in mind.

Let's see some sample ranges

Mastering your play based on your position is crucial. Our preflop charts provide detailed guidelines for every scenario you’ll encounter at the tables.

BU 3way

Spin and Go Button Preflop Raise 16bb deep
Playing from the Button (BU) in 3-way pots is a position of power. With the strongest range, you should expect to extract a lot of value when sitting in this seat. This Screenshot shows our BU range 16bb+ deep.

SB 3way

Spin and Go SB vs BB preflop range 16bb deep
The SB 3-way is quite a tricky spot to play. You are playing Out of Position (OOP) often with the initiative, which is a tough situation to navigate. You need to be very flexible in this position. Here is an example of our range SB versus BB 16+bb deep.

BB 3way

Spin and Go BB mulitway preflop range
As the BB in 3-way action, you'll naturally have a wide range because of the blind post. It's a position where you’re normally expected to lose the most, but with our charts, you’ll turn this spot into an opportunity. Here is an example of our range BBvSB Limp 13-16bb deep.

SB Heads-up

Spin and Go Small Blind preflop range
In heads-up play, the SB has a very wide range, allowing you to be the aggressor and capitalize on the position advantage. This image is how we play SB 13-16bb Deep.

BB Heads-up

Spin and Go Big Blind heads up preflop chart
From the HU BB, you need to be very flexible as well. You are the last to act, so you are reacting to your opponent’s tendencies and strategies. The screenshot shows our range for 13-16 BBs from the BB versus a SB limp.

TBP memberships and videopacks

The times when you had to join a stable to get good Spin & Go content are over. Don’t get me wrong, stables have their merits for some players and I’m not saying you shouldn’t join one. I have been in a stable myself. I’m just saying now you have an alternative which I didn’t have back in 2015. We at Team Bas Poker provide everything you need to be successful in Spin & Goes: a full video library, three weekly group coaching sessions, and arguably the best possible environment to grow with plenty of like-minded people who are serious about growing and improving, but also fun to be around and more. No contract and no long-term commitment.
