When are You Going to Understand that Texas Holdem Poker is All About Position!

I have been playing 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 styles of Brag and general random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so beautifully called, card on head game. I used to always win, whatever game we were playing and even though I liked to call it skill, it was quite tough to warrant considering the randomness of the games we were wagering, so I was pleased to accept I was having a prolonged run of luck.

Then came Poker, or far more importantly Hold’em Poker, made famous by a bunch of Texas card players in the 60’s and since grown into one of the biggest card phenomena ever witnessed. Poker is absolutely the new black, it truly is uber cool with many of the world’s leading stars racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick flick via the TV channels these days and it is possible to not escape from poker, and needless to say there’s the fabled WSOP, the Holy Grail and Mecca all rolled into one for each individual gambler.

So with all of this new found recognition, with so many Television programmes dedicated to poker, and magazine and book shelves loaded up with quality material written by the top minds on poker, when are folks going to learn that this game is all about position!?

Perhaps I ought to not have so worked up about this, after all the far more persons who wrestle with the delicate tactics and strategies required for succeeding regularly at Hold’em, the much better it’s for everyone else, correct? I mean, if they can’t be troubled to read all of the available details about why location is so crucial, why really should we bother? We ought to just be happy there’s one more fish at the table!

It’s true, we need to not reward laziness with guidance and aid. Nevertheless, I liken this to a helpful casino game of football. Naturally the levels are not so high, except when you see a gambler having difficulties, you support them, provide them several advice, ultimately showing them a method to love, really like and appreciate the casino game as much as you. I’m askin all home gamblers to do exactly the same thing with their poker buddies who haven’t quite got a handle on the subtleties of betting position. Guide them to grow their respect for the casino game. Of course, do not attempt to try this one in your nearby casino, the sharks won’t take pleasure in you teaching their meal how to swim!
