Depending on who you ask, poker can either be a game that has 1 correct answer/play or varying “correct” answers. There’s certainly a compelling case for arguing poker can be played multiple ways profitably and that what is correct for one player is incorrect for another. This can be due to history and table image. It can also be argued that poker is a game that can be solved, there is a better, more correct answer for each play. In essence, there is a perfect play for every move, in every hand. The reality is, nobody achieves this, not even Phil Ivey. You can strive for it, but you won’t attain it, simply because poker is fluid, reactive and dependant on information available at the time. You only have a few minutes to make your decision and perfection cannot be calculated this quickly. The point I am making, before you read on, and hopefully take our poker quiz, is that this poker quiz is meant to be fun, give you feedback on how you have played and also get you thinking. You may get insights of ways of playing hands you never thought of before.
The poker quiz below is a sampling of questions from our poker mentor service. I send our players various scenario work and will give feedback on the answers. It is a great way to communicate with players. It is efficient for both mentor and student and cheaper than hourly rate coaching for the student. The quiz below is solely tournament questions but we do offer cash game mentoring too. Please note that some of the questions can be multiple choice.
