You no doubt recognize that phrase in our title. Usually it is said with reference to no-limit hold’em, a game for which the rules are relatively easy to figure out, but the strategy is complex enough to remain challenging for decades.
Even if the sentiment expressed by the phrase is absolutely true, it has become kind of a cliché. That’s why we liked the variation on it Norm Macdonald shared during the Super High Roller Celebrity Shootout a few weeks back:
“It’s a game that takes five minutes to learn, but 10 minutes to master,” said Macdonald.
Well, the weekend is here, and there’s no other way to say it — it’s time again for “The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz.”
Like before, we’ve drawn 10 multiple-choice questions 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.
Some of these questions concern poker terms and other concepts that you might be able to work out without having read the articles to which they refer. Remember, though, you can always check back through the week’s articles to find answers, if needed.
