      Hi,

      The quiz is broken , not only does this site give horrible poker advice, i.e if board is 7h5c2s and you have 88 if theirs only 1 other person in and he happens to open this sites advice is to fold. Which on any planet on any skill level in poker is horribly wrong , and thats just one example . But thats not even what I'm here to complain about . I have used an answer sheet to enter the correct ( by this sites definition ) to all the quiz answer TWICE and it still says I failed the quiz. I do not understand as I am cheating and getting all the correct answers. I even did it twice just to be sure I didn't mess something up. THIS SITE IS RIGGED AND IS A JOKE.

      If anyone can explain why entering in the correct info twice and still failing I would love to hear their explanation. as long as it is not " you just didn't enter it right" because believe me I entered it correctly, I took extensive means to make sure I enetered everything 100%.

      thanks

      Maybe some of the answers you are entering are wrong in places? Ever think about that?

      Anyway you can answer the quiz with the articles open. Believe me it isnt really that hard.

      And do you think coming here and saying the site gives bad advice is really gona help you? I dont think that anywhere this site advises that you fold 88 on a 7 5 2 board against 1 opponent. Maybe thats where your going wrong. And even if it does (maybe its FL or SnG im not to sure about them) then this advice will be profitable. They dont just give $50 for free so you can lose playing crappy hands.
      So...
      Good Luck then, hope to see you at the tables

      Then you sir have not done to quiz nor have you read the beginner articles because both places they tell you to fold those pocket 8's , and if you have not found other examples of erroneous info on this site ( I've found like 10 in as many minutes ) then I too hope to see you at the tables soon , daddy needs some free new shoes !

      I also used their EXACT example of those pocket 8's , that 7 5 2 board is from their example not something I made up , thats their EXACT example of what to do with pocket 8's against 1 opponent if he is first to bet and bets ANYTHING you are too fold immediatly with your pocket OVERPAIR . what a freaking joke.

      This confuses me all to hell.

      On one hand, you say the quiz is rigged and even when you cheat (which you can't do btw) you can't pass it. Then you bitch about the site giving horrible advise.

      Its obvious you either a) haven't read the basic articles or b) when answering the questions you answer with what you THINK is right and NOT with the open page as you claim or c) you're a complete idiot.

      If you truly believe this site gives bad advise, why are you even trying to pass the quiz in the first place?? If you really thought that the people on this site are only offering bad advise and counsel, wouldn't you be better of NOT listening and playing YOUR way? You obviously think its a better way by the sounds of it.

      Oh, and just so you know...if you think pocket 8's on that board is the nuts, you REALLY need to re read the articles and try the quiz again. Hey, maybe this time, try to do it with an OPEN MIND!

      Ok in SnG article i found something like 99 vs 5 opponents as an overpair you fold to a bet but really as post above says 88 isnt the nuts. What happens on turn when an over card comes?

      Hello JimmyToledo,

      I am not sure where you are getting this example from but I'm sure it is not from our quiz - since that doesn't contain such detailed post-flop situations. Our article does have an example where you fold 99 on a 4 :club: 8 :club: 3 :heart: flop with 5 people on the flop in the 10/20 blind level. Playing too loose in early stages with marginal hands for miniature pots is simply not very profitable in the long-run. Even if you call there - you won't like any turn cards - and raising is simply overplaying your hand. You can make much more chips in later tournament phases with good ICM play.

      I suggest you read the articles and try to answer the quiz questions using the starting hand charts provided there. I looked over your quiz attempts and the answers you provided are by no means 100% of what we teach in the basic articles.

      Best regards
