  • High Score Poker Challenge - Discussion Thread


    There's no better feeling than leaving a poker table with your opponents chips in the bag. When we play hard, make the correct decisions, and have a little luck on our side poker can be really profitable. But do we always make the right decisions to maximise the amount of chips we can win? Bet too big and everyone folds, bet too small and we don't maximize our profits.

    Play the 'High Score Poker Challenge' and see how many chips you can take away from the table. Our Pro's will give you some tips and pointers along the way but ultimately each decision is yours. Check the leaderboard when you're finished to see your score and if you're not happy with your position you can always try again.

          Hey guys,

          I tryed the quiz now for 20 times , but it seems i get stuck around the 3780+- score.

          AJ 0.45
          check
          1.25
          3.05


          QJ call
          check
          check
          0.35


          72 fold



          KK 1.10
          all in


          A5 0.40
          0.30


          AA 0.50
          call
          call
          all in

                  I have played this challenge repeatedly actually taking notes until I figured out how to optimize my winnings on each hand. I Can score 4785 but cant reach 4800. My question: Is the dealer taking a rake? If not what am I missing?

                        QJ bet 0.5/bet 0.2/check/all in
                        72 fold
                        KK re-raise 2 -> all in
                        A5 bet 0.5/bet 0.5
                        AA bet 0.5/all in
