Here are the questions, answers, and explanations to the Master HU Post Flop Poker w/ BB Ante Quiz
Question #1: 75bbs deep BTN raises and the BB calls. The flop comes Kh-Js-9s. BB checks. Should BTN check behind with any portion of their range?
Explanation: Yes, marginal made hands that do not want to bet and get raised especially want to check behind, as well as total junk.
Question #2. 75bbs on deep after there is a preflop BTN raise and a BB call, when it checks down to the river, should SB usually bluff with their highest showdown weak hands (such as K-high) or their lowest showdown weak hands (such as 6-high)?
Explanation: You should be more inclined to bluff when you have your lowest showdown weak hands because when the river checks through, you never win.
Question #3. Should you be more inclined to bet with your top pairs with the best kickers or your top pairs with the worst kickers?
Explanation: If you are going to check behind with top pair, it should be with the ones with the weakest kickers.
Question #4. On the river, you always need at least a pair to call a bet.
Explanation: Especially when the pot is small, hands weaker than pairs can call a bet.
Question #5. When you check/raise the flop, bet the turn, and then go all-in on the river as a bluff, would you prefer to have a blocker to the nuts or not have a blocker to the nuts.
You want to have a blocker
You do not want to have a blocker
Explanation: You much prefer to block your opponent’s autocalls on the river, meaning you would prefer to have a blocker to the nuts.
Question #6. Out of position on the river when you decide to bet tiny, what type of hand should you mostly have in your range?
Premium made hands
Marginal made hands
Explanation: You mostly prefer to have thin value hands when betting tiny from out of position on the river, as well as a small portion of premium made hands and bluffs.
Question #7. When you face a large bet on the flop, should you mostly check/raise to larger than 2.75x the bet or smaller than 2.75x the bet?
Larger than 2.75x
Smaller than 2.75x
Explanation: When facing a large bet, your raise size should be small in relation to the bet. When facing a small bet, your raise size should be large in relation to the bet.
Question #8. After the flop checks through, should you ever check from out of position with premium hands?
Explanation: Check. While you will often bet with your premium hands, some of them need to check to protect your checking range and to allow you to check/raise the turn.
Question #9. Should you ever fold a pair to a flop continuation bet?
Explanation: Facing a large continuation bet from a range that should be polarized, you should often fold low pocket pairs that are unlikely to improve on the turn and river.
Question #10. When bluff catching on the river against a large bet when there is no flush available, would you prefer to have a hand like bottom pair or a hand like Ace-high?
Explanation: You would usually prefer to have bottom pair because it blocks some of the full houses and two pair combinations.
Question #11. 75bbs deep, BTN raises and you call from the BB. The flop checks through. When you turn two pair and the turn brings the third card of a suit, should you usually bet or check?
Explanation: When you turn a premium hand, you should usually bet large, especially when it is almost always good but vulnerable to being outdrawn. That said, checking every once in a while is also fine.
Question #12. You raise with 66 from the BTN and the BB calls. The flop comes Js-7s-2c. Should you usually bet or check?
Explanation: You should usually check with your marginal made hands that are likely good if only a little more money goes into the pot that also have a difficult time improving on the turn and river.
Question #13. You raise from the BTN and the BB calls. The flop comes Kh-Ks-8s. The BB checks, you bet 1.2bbs and the BB calls. The turn is the 2s. Is it reasonable to continue bluffing with JhTd?
Explanation: It is reasonable to continue bluffing with two overcards to the 8.
Question #14. When most people check/raise the river heads-up against a large bet, are they usually over-bluffing or under-bluffing?
Explanation: Most people substantially under-bluff when facing large bets on the river, allowing you to exploitatively over-fold.
Question #15. BTN raises and you call from the BB with K4. The flop comes 9h-5s-2h and you both check. The turn is the Kd. Which play should you usually make?
Explanation: You should mostly check when the turn is extremely good for your opponent flop checking range.
Question #16. Facing a tiny river bet, should you raise for value with a marginal made hand like third pair?
Explanation: You should almost never raise with third pair against any bet on the river.
Question #17. 80bbs deep, you raise to 2.5bbs with 77 from the BTN and the BB 3-bets to 11bbs. What should you do?
4-bet to 26bbs
Explanation: You should call with your middle and small pairs most of the time when facing a 3-bet.
Question #18. On the turn when your hand is likely good but vulnerable to getting outdrawn, should you usually bet or check?
Explanation: You should usually check when your hand is probably good but vulnerable.
Question #19. With deep stacks, would you prefer to continuation bet with a pair that has a backdoor flush draw, or the same hand without the backdoor flush draw?
With the backdoor flush draw
Without the backdoor flush draw
Explanation: You would rather have a backdoor flush draw because you will sporadically make a flush in a gigantic pot.
Question #20. You raise the BTN and the BB calls. The flop comes and it checks through. The SB bets. Should you raise more often if the SB bets 25% pot or 75% pot?
Explanation: You should raise more often as the bet you are facing is smaller.
