      Hello fellow PokerStrategists!

      After the holiday hiatus, our weekly quiz series returns with the sequel to our Fixed-Limit flop play edition: how confident are you in your turn play?

      Once you've passed the flop, a certain direction of the hand has already been set. You've made a first assessment of the situation and you've probably come up with a preliminary game plan for the following streets.

      As the name of the street suggests, the turn is a crucial turning point in the course of the hands; it can reaffirm your line or completely overthrow it. Sometimes, the difference between these two choices is very subtle.

      As the stakes increase from small bets to big bets, the decisions taken on this street have the biggest impact of all on the final pot size - you can win twice as much as on the flop and prepare the road for a big pot on the river, but one wrong step, and your losses might be multiplied as well.

      Can you handle this challenge?
