The Poker Guy Quiz

A Little Piece Of Introduction

In May 2009, someone on The Magic Café asked for a "dumb card guy quiz". Unfortunately, cards are a too wide field, hence we have decided to center on America's favorite game: Poker. We just hope you will learn something through the following questions, not to mention having fun too.

Note that answers are considered exact up to May 2009.

Good luck!
