Hello fellow strategists!

The second part of our Fixed Limit quiz series deals with several ways to slightly increase your winning rate as you progress through the levels.

How do you play in an unraised pot? How do you adjust against calling stations? And when can a free card raise come in handy?

If you know how to squeeze that extra bet out of your opponents, show us and post your results of this week's quiz:

Also make sure that you master the basics:

Interesting quiz. Only 15 points this time. :/

Question 1:
"I hardly have any fold equity and the raise doesn't really make things cheaper for me either, as the odds of 1:11 are the same as the probability of the gutshot - the raise can't be more than break-even here."

-2 points

I don't understand that sentece. I made no sense for me so I choosed the wrong answer here.

Question 2:
"The aggressor could fold better hands like pocket pairs or A-highs." A-high on such a draheavy flop? Never.

-2 points

"Moreovere, my 8-8.5 discounted outs equate to about 33% equity and a raise would already be break-even in itself."

I don't understand that as well. Is this somehow described somewhere? (Or with other words?)

Question 5:

-1 point

Good point.

It means that a free card raise doesn't save you any money here, and as the odds for a raise are 1:11, which is the same as the probability of the gutshot hitting, so the raise itself can only be break-even. Now, I'm not the Fixed Limit expert, so I don't know exactly what the author means with the odds for a raise - but that's what it says .

"Moreovere, my 8-8.5 discounted outs equate to about 33% equity and a raise would already be break-even in itself."
I guess it's the same issue as the other one. What does the other mean with odds for a raise or equity for a raise? I suppose it's something FL related, so I can't really help you out .

Hmm I never heard of that. :/
mean I raise and pay 1 SB more instead of 1 BB on the turn.
Ahh maybe it's you get 11:1 to hit on the turn so you hit the gutshot "too" often. I think I got it.
Now I just need the article for it as this might be a leak in my game.
