When To Continuation Bet Quiz – Answers and Explanations

Here are the questions, answers, and explanations to the When To Continuation Bet Quiz

Question #1. If your opponent almost never folds to C-bets, you should …

Trap more often

Bet wider for value and bluff less

Bluff more

Explanation: You should bet wider for value and bluff less often, exploiting the fact that the opponent will call too often with a weak range. 


Question #2. If your opponent is a maniac and will always bet when you check behind on the flop, you should … 

Bet your entire range

Check back your strong hands

C-Bet with a balanced strategy

Explanation: Against this player type, you should check back your strong hands to trap your overly aggressive opponent. 


Question #3. If you have a significant range advantage, you should usually …

Bet frequently with a small sizing

Bet infrequently with a large sizing

Explanation: With a large range advantage, you should usually bet frequently using a small sizing. 


Question #4. When equities run close, resulting in no significant range advantage, you should…

Bet frequently with a small sizing

Bet infrequently with a large sizing

Explanation: With no significant range advantage, your opponent will have more hands that will continue to any bet. This should cause you to check more frequently. Due to developing a significant checking range, your betting range becomes more polarized, containing your premium made hands and draws. So you want to use a large bet size to gain more value from the villain’s strong range and to give a worse price to hands with good equity. ‬


Question #5. You open from the CO and the BB calls. The flop comes [9s-7c-6s]. What two hand types should compose your C-betting range? 

Premium made hands and draws

Premium and marginal made hands

Premium made hands and junk

Marginal made hands and draws

Explanation: Betting with your premium made hands and draws allows you to check back your marginal hands, such as T9s, and your junk to remain balanced and difficult to play against. 


Question #6. You open from the CO and the BB calls. The flop comes [9s7c-6s]. When you decide to bet, should you use a small (25%-33%) bet size or a large (66%-75%) bet size?

Small bet size

Large bet size

Explanation: On this flop, you do not have a significant range advantage and the board texture has many draws available. This should lead you to using a large C-bet size. 


Question #7. You raise from UTG and the BB calls. The flop comes [Jc-6d-6h]. The BB player checks. Should you be betting frequently or infrequently?

Frequently

Infrequently

Explanation: On this board, the UTG has a massive range advantage and should be C-betting frequently.


Question #8. You raise from UTG and the BB calls. The flop comes [Jc-6d-6h]. The BB player checks. Should you use a small (25-33%) bet size or a large (66-75%) bet size?

Small bet size

Large bet size

Explanation: Although you have a large range advantage, the player in the BB has the nut advantage. This is because the BB has way more 6s in their range. When your opponent has the nut advantage, you should be using a small bet size. 


Question #9. Let’s take two similar situations: You raise from the HJ and the BB defends versus when you raise from the HJ and the BTN calls. In which situation should you be C-betting more often?

HJ vs BB

HJ vs BTN

Explanation: The HJ vs BB should C-bet more often for two main reasons. The first is that your range is much stronger than the BB’s defending range, resulting in you having range advantage across many flops. The second reason is that you will be playing the pot from in position, resulting in a higher C-bet frequency. 


Question #10. On the flop, what ratio of Draws to Premium Made Hands should compose your c-betting range?

1 draw : 1 premium made hand

2 draws : 1 premium made hand

1 draw : 2 premium made hands

Explanation:  It is a game theory principle that when you C-bet on the flop, you want to have a 2:1 ratio of draws to premium made hands to stay balanced. Check out the Past Homework Webinars in Pokercoaching.com where this is discussed in-depth.
