• The Importance of Poker Seating

    Hold’em is simply about individuals and position. All knowledgeable Hold’em enthusiasts agree that position in no cutoff Texas Hold’em is critically important. Playing your hole cards in last position can be a great deal more beneficial than in early poker position. The reason seeing that much more data is collected right before acting.

    For example, I played in a $1-$2 no limit money game at a local casino. I bumbled in with 2, 9 unsuited on the croupier button, so I could see a bit of action. Flop arrived A-A-4. A player in early spot placed a fifteen dollar bet. Two individuals fold and it was now my turn. I should have folded, but something felt a tiny bit off. I read this person as a weak-tight player, and usually if he had the best hand he would simply check, so I called.

    The turn showed with a 7, making it A-A-4-7. My challenger placed another wager of $20. I deliberated for a while, but decided to re-raise another $30thirty dollars on top of his twenty dollars. He folds and I take the pot.

    Betting at late position allows you an insight into where you are positioned by studying how other players react and wager. On the flip side, individuals at starting position may use their poker spot to check-raise the last positioned competitors and trap them later at the end. In Texas Holdem, both ends, last and early must be played carefully.
