Earlier this week in "Seven Reasons Not to Be the Table's Poker Know-It-All," Robert Woolley provided a list of reasons why it's a bad idea to correct other players at the table when they reveal their understanding of poker might be lacking.
He prefaced his list by describing a not uncommon scenario. A player is dealt a pocket pair, misses hitting a set on the flop, and says "When you have a pocket pair, you're supposed to flop a set once every three times on average, but I've been playing ten hours today and haven't hit yet."
You know what's wrong here, don't you? However, if you're sitting across from the player, blurting out a correction isn't smart, no matter how tempting it might be to do so. Meanwhile today's installment of The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz let's you give into the temptation. In other words, here — instead of at the table — you can be a "know-it-all."
What follows are eight statements we're imagining being uttered at the table, and you're invited to point out what's wrong with each. Get six correct and you pass, and if you happen to miss any you'll see a note explaining the right choice.
As always, when you finish you'll see a leaderboard showing who the know-it-alls are. If you're logged into your PokerNews account, your username will appear amid the standings. Don't have a PokerNews account already? Click here to create one.
