The Turbo Championship of Online Poker is underway on PokerStars, a 50-event series featuring quick levels — usually only five minutes long, with a few “hyper-turbo” events tossed in for which the levels only last three minutes.
The 2016 Aussie Millions currently ongoing also has a “turbo” event with 15-minute levels coming up, plus a few “Shot Clock” events employing timers that only allow players 20 or 30 seconds to act. By the way, the PokerNews live reporting team is on hand at the Crown Poker Room providing full coverage from the Crown Poker Room in Melbourne.
In the spirit of the TCOOP and those “Shot Clock” events in Melbourne, this week’s installment of The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz is designed to be a fast one with eight rapid-fire questions about odds and outs in hold’em. Get six right and you pass the quiz, and if you happen to miss any you’ll get a note telling you the correct answer. Provided you don’t go looking online for answers, the quiz shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete.
Enough with the preliminaries. The clock is ticking… go!
