Those of a certain age might recall the frequent advertisements we used to see on our televisions for the non-profit organization “Reading Is Fundamental.” The group was first formed in the mid-1960s and is still going strong, although those “RIF” ads are a little less conspicuous these days.
We talk a lot about “reading” in poker. Indeed, it really is fundamental.
We talk about reading your opponents in order to discover their playing styles and anticipate their next moves. We talk about hand reading and “range reading,” too, as we try to narrow what our opponents may possibly have. And, of course, here in the PokerNews Strategy section we offer another kind of reading, too — the literal kind — and in this new installment of “The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz” we’ll give you a chance to test those reading skills.
As in the past, the quiz this week features questions derived from recent articles appearing in the Strategy section here at PokerNews. Getting six or more correct out of the eight earns you a passing grade, and if you get any wrong you’ll get a note explaining the correct choice.
You may well be able to work out the correct answers without having read the articles to which they refer, although you can always look back through the week’s articles to double-check.
Ready? All right, then. Do your best, and of course read carefully.
