      Not completely sure with the check-behind on the turn in the JTs hand.

      Didnt like the last 2 questions first one I would bet the jts to build up the pot

      last one utg and co could easily be playing 2-pair type hands here making a call possible with the straight.

      I disagree with 2 hands:

      1.4 - I don't like the call. We won't get pay out if we hit. The pot is already some what big. I take the fold equity and my outs and raise.

      2.3 - very easy bet for me. They are never ever on a c/r. They will always c/f or c/c. Bot is ok, because we have tons of outs. Very often you will win the pot right on the turn.

      1.4 is discussable, but 2.4 is not imo.

      Evaluation: Good quiz with with small leaks. You need to work on your aggression MR. Quiz-master. Take some private coaching lessons and you will have fixed that leak in no time. Good luck.


      Best regards,

      20/24 same opinion on 10Js , I always raise in that spot

      1.4 was between call and raise , opted call ; maybe he`s donk betting with trash and gives up turn even if I don`t hit the flush

      Good quiz, helped to remind me that sometimes it is best to take a free river card when IP with only a draw and no made hand and no overcards.
