c-bet strategy quiz

Only 20% of Poker Players Will Ace This C-Betting Quiz

Are you a c-betting-boss? We’re about to find out!

For each question, assume you have no solid reads on your opponent. Some questions have more than one correct answer.

Editor’s note: The questions in this quiz assume you are using a polarized c-betting strategy, but there are other valid c-betting strategies. So, you may get a question “WRONG” even though your answer is valid as a part of your strategy. Keep this in mind when reviewing your score at the end–you may deserve more points than you get.

Question #1

$0.50/$1 Online. 6-Handed. Effective Stacks $100.

Hero is in MP with A 3
utg folds. Hero raises to $2.5. 3 folds. BB calls.

Flop ($5.5): A♠ 5 4♠
BB checks. Hero…?

You have a medium-strength hand with which you will not be able to extract more than one street of value most of the time. This type of hand tends to perform better as part of your bluffcatching range when playing a polarized strategy on the flop. Thus, checking back and looking to call one or two streets (depending on the runout) is advisable. 

An option not given is to use a smaller c-bet size, which is also acceptable if it's accompanied by a merged c-betting strategy. This will be the case for other questions in this quiz as well, and I will offer that size as an option in some of the questions.
