When will You Going to Understand that Hold em Poker is All About Position!

I have been betting poker now for about five years, I have bet cards my entire life starting with games of Gin Rummy for pennies with my Grand Mother, to all of the various forms of Brag and general random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so gracefully called, card on head casino game. I used to often win, whatever casino game we were wagering and although I liked to call it skill, it was extremely difficult to justify considering the randomness of the games we were betting, so I was over joyed to accept I was having a prolonged run of good fortune.

Then came Poker, or additional importantly Texas holdem Poker, made famous by a group of Texas card players in the 60’s and since grown into one of the largest card phenomena ever seen. Poker is totally the new black, it can be ultra cool with several of the world’s top super stars racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick scan via the TV channels nowadays and you are able to not escape from poker, and obviously there’s the fabled WSOP, the Holy Grail and Mecca all rolled into one for every individual player.

So with all of this fresh discovered recognition, with so several Tv programmes dedicated to poker, and magazine and book shelves loaded up with high quality material written by the top minds on poker, when are folks going to understand that this game is all about position!?

Perhaps I need to not acquire so worked up about this, after all the additional persons who struggle with the delicate techniques and strategies required for winning consistently at Texas hold em, the better it is for everyone else, correct? I mean, if they can’t be troubled to read all of the accessible facts about why location is so important, why really should we bother? We ought to just be glad there is one more fish at the table!

It is true, we must not reward inactivity with advice and aid. On the other hand, I liken this to a friendly casino game of football. Granted the levels are not so good, except when you notice a player having difficulties, you guide them, offer them a few advice, ultimately showing them a way to get pleasure from, really like and be thankful for the game as much as you. I am askin all house players to do exactly the same thing with their poker friends who haven’t quite got a handle on the nuances of wagering position. Help them to grow their respect for the game. Of course, don’t attempt to try this one in your local betting house, the sharks won’t take pleasure in you teaching their lunch how to swim!
