I need material to practice EV games questions.But I lack practice in betting questions where a set-up of a game is given and one has to respond to the best strategy or best bet to take. A good book with theory and questions would be great, or even a website to practice probability questions like these.

Here is a list of books I have and like:
Pretty much every puzzle style question I got in any interviews I'd seen before, essentially from reading books like these.
puzzlegrams, pentagram Simpler puzzles, nicely illustrated.
My Best Mathematical and Logic Puzzles (Dover Recreational Math), Marten Gardner A nice book of shortish puzzles, harder than puzzlegrams, with useful and interesting identities.
the Incredible Dr Matrix, Martin Gardner A book about a numerologist with lots of interesting mathematical oddities, kind of explaining how numerology works in a similar way to how cold reading is explained, by showing how certain patterns of numbers occur.
Mathematical Magic Show, Marten Gardner More maths puzzles, ranging from really quite hard to nice and neat.
Mrs. Perkins's Electric Quilt: And Other Intriguing Stories of Mathematical Physics, Paul J. Nahin More interesting mathematical results, but more tied to physics.
I recently moved house so all my books are still in boxes, when i remember others I'll add them to the list.
