Frequency based range analysis

Bought Ed's book about a month ago and had a question for the forum or Ed. What do I do with the hands in my checking range that I want to carry from round to round? Either I want to use them to bluff catch or they are my medium strength hands I want check with on the river. I have been writing out ranges using the 70% rule with the rules to pick out what hands to value bet and to bluff. If I am taking those 70% of combos and breaking them down by the rules from round to round of betting, do I re include those combos on the next round or do I just know they r there for my bluff catching and showdown purposes???

Pls be gentle guys and gals, new to no limit and this frequency based approach.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding your question, you must include them in your 70% using Ed's plan. There is no extra, "off the books" category with this approach to creating your range of continuing combinations of hands.

    I don't really address what to do with the checking hands in the book, since I considered it beyond the scope. Once you check them, they disappear from your 70% betting ranges, never to return. With the hands you plan to check-call with, you can divide them roughly into hands you plan to check-call once with, twice with, and three times with--obeying the general principle that you should lose some of the hands at each step (i.e., the 70% rule).
