Advanced Poker Strategy Quiz

Welcome to your Advanced Poker Strategy Quiz. This quiz is based on the Advanced Poker Strategy Course, and its purpose is to test your understanding of the advanced poker principles with simple examples inspired by the tutorials of the course.

On top of each question is a link to the corresponding tutorial in case you want to review the theory before answering the question.

So, let's get started!

Short Stack Poker


You are on the button with a short stack of 10bb and there are no antes. With which of these hands could you profitably shove all-in?

Implied Odds


You are facing an unknown opponent with position. You are holding K♥9♥, and the flop is A♥8♥4♠.
The pot is 100$, your opponent makes a c-bet of 75$, leaving him with 200$ more, and you have him covered. The pot is now 175$, what should you do?

The Gap Concept


You are on the big-blind facing an early position open-raise. With which of these hands would you choose to defend (either call or 3-bet)?

Pot Commitment


You raise from the button with K♦J♠and get called by both blinds. The flop comes J♥7♦6♠. You decide to make a c-bet. The small blind folds but the big blind calls.

The turn is a blank card, the 2♦. Your opponent checks and you bet and your opponent check-raises you all-in. The pot, including your opponent's all-in, is 150$ and you need 40$ to call. What should you do?

Pot Commitment


You are playing heads up against a tight opponent relatively short stacked. You 3-bet him preflop and he 4-bets all-in. At that point, you have committed 20% of your stack and estimate that your opponent has a tight, 10% hand range.
With which of the following hands are you pot-committed to call?

The Gap Concept


You are on the big-blind facing a middle position open-raise. With which of these hands would you choose to defend (either call or 3-bet)?

Pot Odds


You are facing a rock-tight opponent. On the turn, the board is A♣10♥9♣2♦. The pot is 100$, and you have only 30$ more in your stack. Your opponent goes all-in and you put him on top pair or better.
With which of the following hands would you call?

Fold Equity


You open-raise from middle position with 10♥9♥ and get called by the big blind. The flop comes A♣5♠4♠, and your opponent checks.
What should you do?

Three-Betting


You are on the big blind with J♠J♦. An unknown player raises from the cut-off to 3bb, what should you do?

Fold Equity


You open-raise from middle position with K♥J♥ and get called by the big blind. The flop comes A♣8♠7♠, and you both check. The turn is the 3♥, a blank, and your opponent checks again.
What should you do?
