“Full-blown monkey tilt” is one of those phrases in poker that often elicits a grin. It’s that extra adjective “monkey” that does it, suggesting the person so affected has somehow regressed on the evolutionary scale to a more primitive state where human reason has been muted almost entirely.
Speaking of full-blown monkey tilt, a couple of questions in today’s installment of “The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz” focus on Phil Hellmuth’s appearance on ESPN this week, the first episodes from the network’s coverage of the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event. As it turned out (spoiler alert), Hellmuth was relatively in control during the episodes, only letting the necessarily bleeped-out expletives fly occasionally. He even was shown at the feature table ordering ice cream for his opponents!
As we’ve done before, the quiz this week features 10 questions derived from the past week’s worth of articles appearing in the Strategy section here at PokerNews. Getting seven or more correct out of 10 earns you a passing grade, and if you get any wrong you’ll get a note explaining the correct choice.
You might find you can work out the answers to questions without having read the articles to which they refer, although you can always look back through the week’s articles to double-check. So if you’re unsure — and you want to avoid going on full-blown monkey tilt for missing one — feel free to click around to find the answer.
