      Great quiz. I like the results with explanations of each selection the most.

      The answers to question 12 is copied below.

      What is meant by the statement in the answer:
      The hand is right on the edge again: sometimes you can 3-bet, sometimes call.


      QUESTION 12:
      $25 NL Hold'em (10-handed)

      Stacks & Stats
      UTG ($25)
      UTG+1 ($25)
      UTG+2 ($25)
      MP1 ($25) (28/25/4/58/21) [VPIP/PFR/AF/ft3-bet/4-bet]
      MP2 ($25)
      MP3 ($25)
      CO ($25) (40/10/1/40/1) [VPIP/PFR/AF/ft3-bet/4-bet]
      BU ($25) (19/16/3/59/15) [VPIP/PFR/AF/ft3-bet/4-bet]
      SB ($25)
      Hero ($25)
      Preflop: Hero is BB with
      7 folds, BU raises $0.75, 1 fold, Hero…?

      Fold (0 Points)
      Call (3 Points)
      3-bet (2 Points)

      Your answer 3-bet (2 Points)
      A fold is out here. The hand is right on the edge again: sometimes you can 3-bet, sometimes call. Your opponent can also call 3-bets, however he also likes to 4-bet (15%). However, as you also don't have a clear value 3-bet here, the tendency is slightly towards a call.

      well you didnt even put the hand there.

      assuming you are referring to a hand like 56s, we could 3bet it as a bluff to seize the initiative and take control of the hand. Or we could call for its speculative value and try to outplay our opponents with our position. Both decisions are close and are highly dependent on villain's tendencies.

      for example with someone who is very aggro postflop, perhaps i might prefer to 3bet and seize the initiative.

      for someone who likes to 4bet, then maybe i wouldn't want to 3bet and fold to a 4bet.
