• When are You Going to Learn that Texas Holdem Poker is All About Seating!

    I have been playing poker now for about five years, I have wagered cards my entire life beginning with games of Gin Rummy for pennies with my Grand Mother, to all of the various types of Brag and general random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so beautifully called, card on head casino game. I used to often win, whatever game we were playing and even though I liked to call it skill, it was really tough to justify thinking about the randomness of the games we were betting, so I was pleased to accept I was having an extended run of good fortune.

    Then came Poker, or a lot more importantly Hold em Poker, made famous by a group of Texas card players in the sixties and since developed into one of the largest card phenomena ever observed. Poker is totally the new black, it really is ultra awesome with a lot of of the world’s top superstars racing to have their name connected with it. Just a quick scan through the TV channels these days and you’ll be able to not escape from poker, and certainly there’s the fabled World Series of Poker, the Holy Grail and Mecca all rolled into one for each individual player.

    So with all of this fresh discovered recognition, with so a lot of Television shows devoted to poker, and magazine and book shelves filled up with quality material written by the leading minds on poker, when are men and women going to understand that this casino game is all about position!?

    Perhaps I ought to not receive so worked up about this, after all the a lot more people who have difficulty with the delicate techniques and strategies necessary for winning regularly at Texas hold’em, the far better it is for everyone else, appropriate? I mean, if they cannot be bothered to look at all of the available info about why position is so critical, why need to we bother? We really should just be happy there is another fish at the table!

    It is true, we really should not encourage laziness with guidance and help. Even so, I liken this to a welcoming game of football. Granted the levels are not so high, except when you notice a gambler struggling, you guide them, provide them some advice, ultimately showing them a method to enjoy, love and appreciate the game as much as you. I am askin all home gamblers to do a similar thing with their poker friends who have not quite got a handle on the nuances of betting position. Help them to grow their respect for the casino game. Of course, don’t attempt to try this one in your local gambling establishment, the sharks will not take pleasure in you teaching their supper how to swim!
