Red face Common hand ranges for different player types

Hi everyone,
i have saved $15,000 and am going to make a run at playing poker professionally starting at $2/$3 live NL. I will start playing in a month down Sydney or up at the Gold Coast but before i do have some holes in my knowledge that must be filled. Can anyone with relatively recent experience at the $2/$3 lvl help me by providing some general hand ranges for the different player types and situations below. I understand that each poker player is different but i just need general ranges to help with my studies and use until i see more from my opponents. Effective stack size 100BB

Tight Passive limping range
Tight Passive calling range (single raiser)
Tight Passive raising range
Loose Passive limping range
Loose Passive calling range (single raiser)
Loose Passive raising range
Tight Aggressive limping range
Tight Aggressive calling range (single raiser)
Tight Aggressive raising range
Loose Aggressive limping range
Loose Aggressive calling range (single raiser)
Loose Aggressive raising range

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated

Re: Common hand ranges for different player types

This would be my guess using a tight passive player

TP limps {JJ-22,AJs-A2s,BWs,BWo (not incl. AKo/s, AQo/s)}
TP calls {JJ-77, AQs-ATs, AQo-ATo, KQs}
TP raises {AA-QQ, AKo/s, AQo/s}

i thought about leaving the calling range the same at the limping range but it just seemed too loose and i think most people tighten up there range of hands when there is a raise in front of the them.

Please correct me if i am wrong, i am here to learn (i plan on keeping my 15K, LOL)

If you have no sense of what any of these answers are, you should NOT be going pro.

Re: Common hand ranges for different player types

I would not dive right in to playing professionally. Try it as a side gig first, and gain experience while you have another income stream.

As for your question, it depends. Stack sizes and position make a difference, even for donks, much less for mediocre players. Also, in live poker, you'll see types of players you won't see online, what I call "post-flop LAG" (which is loose-passive preflop and then aggressive post-flop) and "Flopaholic" (loose-passive pre and tight-passive post).

i appreciate the concern Garick but i have no side income, my wife works while i look after my son and she'll be having another baby in may, so i must get my arse in gear and earn. i plan on playing 12 hour sessions friday, saturday and sunday (targeting recreational players and drunks). i may add another day if i don't miss my boy too much.
i understand stack size makes a difference but in my limited experience in playing live $1/3 and $2/3 (16 months ago) most of my opponents usually keep their BB top-up to 100. If they're is someone playing TAG with a short stack i'll put his hand within the short stack strategy guidelines mainly high cards and big pairs.
As for position i didn't really want to add further complications to my question. i understand people should open their range the better the position become, especially with more limpers or callers but i have also notice a lot of player sticking to a pretty define calling or raising range.
Thanks for the heads up on the post-flop lag and flopaholic.
Now can you please provide me with your idea on general loose and tight limping/calling/range and how much these are affect but someones passivity or aggression

I'll just add there is no "generic" villain. Age, sex, and other factors also are involved.

As such, I'm just going to lock this. You'll get little useful information if you want to compete as a pro.
