      Hello fellow PokerStrategists!

      Today's edition of the weekly quiz ends our recent Fixed Limit series. In a last test of wits, you will have to dodge the pitfalls of the final street: the river.

      The river. The last street in Hold'em poker. No more cards to save anyone or to change the course of the hand. All things are set, all that's left is the action. Just one final obstacle before the showdown.

      As dramatic as this may sound, the finality of the river indeed strongly influences the play on this street. Depending on the board texture and the previous action, ranges can vary from very broad to absolutely nitty.

      Confronting such a wide spectrum of possibilities, you will have to leave the realm of fixed betting sequences in order to effectively react to the situation - the toughest of spots require you to put your whole arsenal of poker knowledge to use.

      Have you acquired the necessary skills yet?
