Not sure I understand why the answer to questions 3 on the quiz is a call.

So the question states:

You call a preflop raise, a c-bet, and a double barrel with 9♠ 9♥.

Facing a pot-sized bet on the river against this exact range, you should:

vs a pot size bet our Equity required to call (or BE%) is:
risk / (risk + reward)
= 1/(1+1)
= 1/2
= 50%

the question shows that villain has:
- weak pair : 3.06%
- A-hi: 12.02%
- No made hand: 23.5%
= 38.58% we are ahead

since we need to be right 50% of the time to make this profitable, shouldn't this be a fold?

    Versus a pot-sized bet we need just over 33% equity to call.

    1 into 1 = 2

    we risk 1 to win 2

    = 1/(1+2)
    = 1/3
    = 33 %

    solutions are also provided at the end of the quiz. the 38% which is supposed to be the hard bit is correct.

    Kat or other forum Bud’s
    I didn’t do very well on this quiz (thin value betting) and would like to sharpen my skills. Are there other resources you could recommend I can study?

    Hmmm. Did the model solutions provide an adequate explanation of the correct answers? The main purpose of the quizzes is to identify what you don't know, but I'd hope the associated lessons, when gone over again, have all the info to fix the issue.
