      I check/called with 87s on the last question. Meh. I guess bet/folding might be better actually.

      I didn't go broke on the 5th question where you flopped trips on a very drawy board. Wanted to play that carefully .__.

      Also, didn't push AK on the turn where you still have one street left.

      Failed on, i think, 11th question, where i decided to play turn passively, when push is profitable.

      24/28 I like it
      but problem is I hate downswing and now I am suffering from one and this quiz helped me to boost my thought that that is downswing and not bad play cause I moved down in limits because I didnt have BR managment for NL10 and variance was going after me so I quit in 1,5 BI + and then experiemnt with MTTs etc and then start playing accordingly to the BRM and limits under NL10 are killing e ....

      but GREAT quiz, I think next week we would all appriciate the Silver Quiz :)
      really GJ

      Although If im honest Although I know the correct play Im not sure If I would push with Aks on the turn, Maybe, dependant on who Im up against I suppose

      I was half-asleep when I tried this test obviously.

      I Folded UTG 22 and AJ because I was thinking Full Ring.

      I Let go off the AK FD hand because I was thinking in NL50 and thought "the pot is only $20, how the hell can we push here?" LOL @ me!

      You've achieved a total of 28 out of 28 possible points. This corresponds to 100 %!

      I will fold 22 UTG 6h every day. You have essentially zero playability postflop unless you set up, and put yourself in a situation of having to call a 3bet for set value without decent callx odds if anyone else on the table wakes up with a hand. Even worse 60% of the time we are OOP doing so.

      22-66, let em go. There is no reason to play every-single-PP OOP just because its a PP.

      23/28. I couldnt find a draw-shove with AKs either. I dont think villain called a $6 cbet for funsies and dont see how we figure to have any fold equity here.

      Most answers were standard/logical imo, the only one I had trouble with was the AKs case where I had to open the equilator to be sure. Basics don't have to be hard :)

      This was discussed here, for those interested.
