‘Otb_Redbaron’ is considered the best 6-max player right now, and Upswing’s own Andres Artinano (‘Educa-p0ker’) has been battling him for years.
In fact, Andres built his strategy by studying the Baron’s strategy, and he has decided to share his knowledge in his advanced Crush the Baron training course. This quiz is based on the tactics and strategies revealed in that course.
Keep in mind that a wrong answer doesn’t mean your play is generally without merit. The answers are based on what the Baron would probably do in those spots.

The Baron usually checks back with weak gutshots, like this one, because they don't fare well against check-raises and can call on almost all turns after checking back. This also helps with balance as Baron can represent some straights when they complete on the turn after checking back on the flop.
