Using The HUD Color Coding System For 3-Betting

When facing an opening raise, you simply note the raiser’s opening range color and then use the correct corresponding block on the chart. It works just like the basic chart, except now you are basing your shoving range on how narrow or wide your opponent’s opening range is.

Here is a quiz to give you some practice on how the intermediate pre-flop chart works in tandem with your HUD for 3-betting decisions. Make sure you are using the VST column if the raiser is in the CO, BTN, or SB. Answers can be found in the appendix.
