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!

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?


You are on the big blind with J♠J♦. An unknown player raises from the cut-off to 3bb, 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:

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?

Hand Ranges

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

Expected Value

You are facing a rock-tight opponent. You have K♥3♥ and on the turn, the board is A♥10♥8♣4♠.

There are 100$ in the pot, and your opponent bets his last 50$. You give your opponent credit for top pair or better. What should you do?

Your new question!

Pot Commitment

You are on the button with Q♥J♥. A player from middle position open-raises and the cut-off and you both call.

The flop comes A♥7♥6♣, the first player bets half pot, and you both call. The turn brings the 6♠, the first player bets full pot, enough to put you all-in, and the second calls.
There are 110$ in the pot including your opponents' bets and you need 25$ to call. 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 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 30% of your stack and estimate that your opponent has a tight, 10% hand range.
With which of the following hands are you obliged to call?
