Range Balancing In Poker

Range balancing in poker is the act of ensuring you have a proper number of bluffs and value hands when you bet or raise.

But because these pairs are…well…pairs – players rarely consider folding these hands preflop and end up stacking up lots of unnecessary losses.

Overlimping, or limping behind, is the act of choosing to limp AFTER one (or more) players have already limped preflop.

Who Is SplitSuit?

Welcome to SplitSuit.com! My name is James Sweeney (although I go by SplitSuit and *Split* just the same) and I’ve been playing poker since 2004 and coaching poker since 2008. Over that time I’ve primarily played online full ring cash games (up to 200NL) and live cash games ($1/$2-$5/$10), but I’ve also played 6max, MTTs, some SNGs, and even PLO8.

I created this site back in 2008, and while the style has certainly changed many times over, the concept is still the same. To share poker strategy, centralize cash game poker material, and be one of the best poker sites to help players all over the world. While you can find a million sites online for casino reviews, ratings, opinions, games, and bonuses – all you will find here are in-depth strategy videos, guides, and products to help take your game to the next level.

Over the last 7 years, I created more than 500 poker videos, coached over 500 students, and even wrote a best-selling full ring poker book…so it’s been busy to say the least. With that said, take some time to explore the site, watch a free poker video, and maybe check out one of my premium poker courses. If you have any questions feel free to contact me, otherwise good luck and happy grinding!
