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!

Hand Ranges

The above is an open range of about 38% 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?

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?

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?


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?

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?


You are on the big blind with J♠J♦. An unknown player raises from the cut-off to 3bb, 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 an early position open-raise. With which of these hands would you choose to defend (either call or 3-bet)?

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?
