      good quiz for beginners imo.
      i think that question 4 is the most interesting one.
      btw: the maximum number of points is 18... but in the avaluation it´s 18-20 ?! did i miss something ? :P

      furthermore:



      SPOILER !!



      odds and outs:
      assuming to have 5 dicounted outs is very optimistic against 4 opponents imo ^^

      I got 12 out of 18, I never play fixed limit tho and until now didnt understand what 3 betting meant. For sure u should play hands differently for fixed limit to NL, which is why I went wrong. Nice quiz tho

      BTW I think the conclusion for the final question is wrong, it doesnt make sense (the answer is right, just havent explained it properly)

      the final sentence "meaning you have to substract at least one other out, leaving you with....." (should be 3 other outs)

      18/18 but I didn't get the last question & explanation:

      "Also, an OESD has 8 outs, but you have to take into account that the board is 2-suited in : this means you have to substract the 6 and the J in , which leaves you at 6 outs. Your outs for 8 and 7 can't be counted either on a board with 2 overcards. Finally, a J would give a K a better street, meaning you have to substract at least one other out, leaving you with 5 discounted outs. "

      You already mentioned 3 outs, but is it just me or there are really 3 overcards??

      17/18. Raised the flop on the AJ hand...

      5 outs is optimistic, I agree.

      14 from 18 :)

      The funniest thing is, I misread the FL, and thought it is FR NL :D Well, at least I would have avoided one 2 points mistake if I knew this is FL :D

      You managed to score 18 out of a total of 18 possible points. This corresponds to 100 %!

      Hmm the last one is a bit optimistic against 4 opponents. ;) 3-4 outs should be better.

      You managed to score 16 out of a total of 18 possible points. This corresponds to 89 %!

      Should have read the articles as well, then I would have known what does "3-connected" mean. I thought Q8 or J8 are also connected because you can make a straight using both of them, but had to realise: they are only connectors! :D

      Hmm no it says 5 discounted outs as you have 8 outs for the OESD and 6 to make a pair. :)

      A couple questions about the quiz:

      STANDARD PLAYING STYLES AGAINST ONE OPPONENT
      Q1) Don't I only have 12 outs? B. mentions 14. 9 spades, 3 sevens, what are the other 2? If they are the 6 nines and eights, how do they get figured in as 2?


      MATHEMATICS OF POKER - ODDS AND OUTS
      Q1) Wouldn't I only have 3 outs left, with only the 3 sixes? what are the other 2?

      Sorry, messed up the question a little too. I think I fixed it and these are the questions I was referring to. It's the quiz at the top.

      Could you post the quiz link please? I think you got the wrong feedback thread and it's hard to figure out which quiz you mean. :)

      I have had a break from serious poker for about 4 months so it's good to know I haven't completely forgotten everything. I'm going to start again in about a month so I am starting to look at Pokerstrategy again and will be commenting (probably incorrectly) on hands and rereading all strategy to get back in the swing of things.
