• When are You Going to Learn that Texas Hold em Poker is About Position!

    I have been playing poker now for about five years, I’ve played cards my entire life beginning 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 eloquently called, card on head casino game. I used to often win, whatever game we were playing and although I liked to call it skill, it was extremely tough to warrant thinking about the randomness of the games we were betting, so I was pleased to accept I was having a long-term run of good fortune.

    Then came Poker, or more importantly Texas holdem Poker, made famous by a group of Texas card gamblers in the 60’s and since developed into one of the largest card phenomena ever experienced. Poker is totally the new black, it can be ultra cool with a lot of of the world’s top celebs racing to have their name connected with it. Just a quick scan via the TV channels nowadays and you’ll be able to not escape from poker, and obviously there’s the fabled WSOP, the Holy Grail and Mecca all combined into one for each individual gambler.

    So with all of this fresh found popularity, with so numerous Tv shows devoted to poker, and magazine and book shelves filled up with quality material written by the foremost minds on poker, when are folks going to learn that this casino game is all about position!?

    Perhaps I really should not have so worked up about this, after all the additional persons who struggle with the delicate tactics and approaches necessary for winning consistently at Hold em, the much better it really is for everyone else, right? I mean, if they can’t be bothered to look at all of the accessible info about why placement is so critical, why must we bother? We should just be happy there’s another fish at the table!

    It is true, we ought to not reward idleness with advice and guide. Even so, I liken this to a welcoming game of football. Granted the stakes aren’t so high, but when you notice a player struggling, you aid them, offer them some advice, ultimately showing them a method to get pleasure from, like and appreciate the game as much as you. I’m asking all home gamblers to do the same thing with their poker buddies who haven’t quite grasped the subtleties of betting position. Assist them to grow their respect for the casino game. Obviously, don’t attempt to try this one in your community gambling den, the sharks will not take pleasure in you teaching their lunch how to swim!
