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!

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)?

Hand Ranges

The above is an open range of about 25% hands. Would you say it is a good open range from:

Pot Odds - Working with percentages

A solid opponent raises preflop from middle position, and you call from the button with K♥Q♥. The flop is A♥5♥4♠, and your opponent check-raises all-in your semi-bluff flop bet. 

There is 80$ in the pot, including your bet and your opponent’s all-in, and you have to call 40$ more to match his bet. What should you do?

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?

Limping in Poker

You are in middle position in a weak, passive table. In front of you, two players have already limped in.
With which of these hands would you consider limping instead of raising or folding?

Implied Odds

You are up against two relatively loose opponents with position. You are holding T♣9♥, and on the turn, the board is A♦8♥7♣2♠.
The first opponent bets 75$, and the second calls. There are 250$ in the pot, and you have a total of 225$ more left, while your opponents have you covered. What should you do?

Hand Ranges

The above is an open range of about 13% hands. Would you say it is a good open range from:

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?


Which of the following situation would favor a polarized 3-bet range like above meaning 3-betting with the top and bottom parts of your continuing hands (hands in blue) while calling with the middle hands (hands in green), over a merged 3-bet range?
