• The Importance of Poker Position

    Texas Hold’em is just about players and seating. All experienced Texas Hold’em players agree that seating in no cutoff Hold’em is fundamentally important. Showing your hole cards in late spot may be much more beneficial than in starting poker position. The reason seeing that much more info is gathered right before acting.

    For example, I played in a $1-$2 no limit cash game at a local casino. I limped in holding 2, 9 unsuited on the croupier button, so I could see a bit of action. Flop arrived A-A-4. A bettor in early position made a $15 bet. 2 players drop out and it was now my turn. I should have dropped out, but his action appear to be a bit odd. I labeled this guy as a weak-tight bettor, and normally if he held the best hand he would only check, so I called.

    The turn came down with a 7, meaning it was a A-A-4-7. My challenger laid another bet of $20. I deliberated a bit, but decided to re-raise an additional $30thirty dollars on top of his $20. He folds and I take the chips.

    Wagering at late spot allows you an insight into where you stand by watching how gamblers react and wager. On the flip side, individuals at starting position might use their poker position to check-raise the last seated antagonists and trap them afterwords at the end. In Texas Holdem, both ends, late and starting should be bet cautiously.
