The Importance of Poker Position

Texas Holdem is all about people and seating. All knowledgeable Holdem enthusiasts agree that position in no cap Texas Hold’em is critically important. Playing your hole cards in late position may be a whole lot more beneficial than in early poker spot. The reason seeing that much more info is collected prior to acting.

e.g., I played in a $1-$2 no limit cash round at a local spot. I limped in holding 2, 9 unsuited on the dealer button, just to partake in a little excitement. Flop came down A-A-4. A person in early spot made a $15 bet. Two entrants fold and it was now my turn to act. I should have folded, but his game play felt a little off. I labeled this player as a weak-tight player, and regularly if he had the biggest hand he would only check, so I called.

The turn came down with a 7, meaning it was a A-A-4-7. My opposer laid another bet of $20. I hesitated for a while, but took a chance to re-raise another $30thirty dollars over and above his twenty dollars. He folds and I take the money.

Sitting at late spot gives you an insight into where you sit by observing how other players react and bet. On the other hand, people at early spot may use their poker spot to check-raise the late seated aggressors and corner them afterwords at the end. In Holdem, each spots, last and starting should be bet cautiously.
