• The Importance of Poker Position

    Texas Holdem is all about players and arrangement. All experienced Texas Hold’em players agree that seating in no limit Holdem is critically important. Playing your hole cards in last spot can be a whole lot more profitable than in starting poker position. This is because a whole lot more information is amassed before acting.

    e.g., I was playing a $1-$2 no limit money game at a local poker room. I came in with 2, 9 unsuited on the dealer marker, so I could see a little action. Flop arrived A-A-4. A player in early position made a $15 bet. 2 players drop out and it was now my turn to act. I really should have dropped out, but his game play appear to be a bit odd. I ID’d this person as a weak-tight guy, and normally if he held the strongest hand he would simply check, so I called.

    The turn showed with a 7, making it A-A-4-7. My challenger laid an additional wager of $20. I hesitated a little bit, but decided to re-raise a further $30thirty dollars on top of his twenty dollars. He folds and I take the chips.

    Gambling at late position offers you an idea where you stand by watching how individuals behave and wager. On the flip side, people at starting spot can use their poker position to check-raise the late seated aggressors and trap them afterwords at the end. In Texas Holdem, each ends, last and early should be bet carefully.
