8/16 holdem. I can't remember the details of this hand, but on the river, I called with a pair of nines, a busted draw that could beat a bluff on the end — and beat a bluff it did.

As I'm stacking the pot, a couple people start talking. Apparently I was an idiot for calling here. One guy said, "Did you misread your hand?"

What's the correct answer in this situation? In retrospect, I think it was "yes, I misread my hand" (and please bluff at me more), but instead, I said that the pot was huge.



I'd like to read another book like Middle Limit Holdem Poker, but slightly different. MLHP defines a concept, then illustrates by example. Usually, the first example illustrates the concept, the second illustrates a special case, etc.  It's a little predictble.

What I want is just the examples, and not in any particular order.

I'm aware of How Good is Your Pot Limit Omaha?  I think that's closer to what I want, but I haven't read it yet. (I know how good my PLO is. It's awful.)

The ideal book would be just a few decisions from a hand with the example on the next page. (I was far too tempted to read the solutions in MLHP, which were always the next paragraph.)  How Good... is formatted okay for this, I think,

Does any such book exist?

If by "examples," you mean "quizzes":

There appear to exist two books by Byron Jacobs "with Jim Brier" called How Good Is Your Limit Hold 'Em and How Good Is Your Limit Hold 'Em 2. I haven't read them, but the few reviews I looked at indicate that they are also contain quizzes.

I trust you know about Brier's Card Player articles, some of which are chock-full of quizzes: http://www.cardplayer.com/magazine/author/30

Other than the already-mentioned Harrington Volume Three, I don't know of any random-question books.

Come to think of it, this might be a little like what you're looking for: I have a quiz I got from Brier years ago. I converted it to HTML: http://zbigniew.pyrzqxgl.com/quiz.html Although it's a form, there's nothing that processes it, so select your answers, then open a another window containing http://zbigniew.pyrzqxgl.com/solutions.html and see how you did. (Warning: this quiz is so old that he hadn't come up with decent position descriptions, so those are a little lame. ("Seat #8," etc.))
