What is a good range to assign to an opponent you have no read on?

I have been using (by observation of the levels I am playing)
any A, any pair, all suited connectors, all broadways, which works out to about 30%.

"Play against yourself".

Until I have some info on opponents, I tend to "believe" they will play very much like I do.

This is far easier than attempting to apply some "external" standard for a "general" run of player as that external "guess" may lead you to give too LITTLE credit, or too much credit to opponents.
You really should know your own game pretty well, and know why you are doing the things you are doing. If you give credit to opponents in exactly the same measure, until they show you otherwise, then you really cannot go far wrong.
