02-13-2016 70123 responses Top results

Welcome back for another round of “The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz.” We’ve gone back through the past week’s worth of articles appearing in the Strategy section here at PokerNews, and from them have derived eight multiple-choice questions with which to challenge you.

Getting six or more of these eight questions correct earns you a passing grade. Meanwhile if you get any wrong you’ll be shown the correct answer along with an explanation of the correct choice. And remember, you can always look back through the week’s Strategy articles if you need any help along the way.
