      Theres a big difference between reading and actually understanding whats there.

      ^ I'm with TheBrood.

      I too had been playing for several years and running at a slight loss prior to finding PokerStrategy.

      I would genuinely suggest you try to put your previous experience/knowledge to one side (not easy, believe me I know! :) ) & focus on the specific strategy that is contained within the guides.

      Once you have mastered these strategies, passed the quiz & built up your BR a little, nothing stopping you from incorporating your own knowledge/style of play again.
      You'll probably find like I did however, that there were serious -e/v aspects to my previous style that PokerStrategy have helped me to fix.

      Good luck, wishing you every success.

      The quiz is about the short stack strategy, so your previous poker knowledge probably doesnt apply to it.

      Yes videos are good too, but concentrate on the supplied strategy guide that is related to the quiz you chose, everything you need (e.g. what action to take when in certain table positions etc) should be contained within there.

      From memory there was a choice of NL/ FL / SNG or something similar, but may have changed since I took it.

      Don't panic, you have a few attempts (believe 5) to pass before it blocks you.

      Good luck buddy, you can do it ;)

      Hi crankitup11,

      Please don't discuss quiz questions on the forums. This is against the board rules.

      If you have problems with the quiz I can only suggest remembering the questions you were uncertain on and trying to find the answers in the articles. If you answer according to what the articles say - the quiz is very easy.

      Best regards

      Hello crankitup11,

      If there is wrong info in your account please write a ticket to our support (http://www.pokerstrategy.com/help/) telling them which info to correct. They will then do this.

      Best regards

      Hello crankitup11,

      I saw that you told them everything was wrong, but this isn't going to help make it right. You have to write a ticket in which you tell them the correct data so that they can correct it.

      Best regards
