No. The only time you'd be concerned about your range of hands is when you're dealing with an opponent who's thinking about your range well. Then you may want to consider balancing your play in some way.
G-Bucks is looking at your play and hand versus the villain's range. You can find Galfond's article on it here:
It's a great read. Basically Galfond is "improving" on the idea of Sklanksy bucks in the sense that we don't know villain's hand when we're making our decisions. We have to consider his assumed range of hands in order to determine the best play or whether or not we made a mistake in the hand.
