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 under the gun in a 9-player table with a short stack of 10bb and there are no antes. With which of these hands could you profitably shove all-in?

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?

Deep Stack Poker


You have an effective stack of 200bb and open-raise under the gun with A♦Q♠. You get called by a player in middle position and by the button. The flop comes A♣J♦7♠. There are about 10bb in the pot. You decide to make a c-bet of 7.5bb and the first player calls, while the button folds.

The turn is a blank, the 4♣, and with 25bb in the pot, you decide to bet 20bb. Your opponent raises you to 60bb. What should you do?
