The Importance of Poker Position

[ English ]

Texas Hold’em is just about gamblers and seating. All experienced Holdem players agree that seating in no cap Hold’em is fundamentally important. Playing your hole cards in late spot can be a whole lot more beneficial than in starting poker spot. The reason because a lot more information is gathered before acting.

i.e., I was playing a $1-$2 no limit cash game at a local casino. I came in holding 2, 9 unsuited on the dealer marker, just to see a little action. Flop came down A-A-4. A gambler in starting position laid a $15 wager. 2 entrants fold and it was my turn to act. I should have folded, but something appear to be a bit odd. I ID’d this guy as a weak-tight guy, and regularly 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 opponent made a further wager of $20. I deliberated for a while, but made a decision to re-raise a further $30thirty dollars on top of his $20. He folds and I won the chips.

Playing late position allows you an idea where you are positioned by seeing how other individuals behave and wager. On the other hand, gamblers at early position could use their poker position to check-raise the last positioned competitors and trap them afterwords at the end. In Hold’em, each spots, last and starting must be played carefully.
