• When will You Going to Understand that Hold’em Poker is All About Position!

    [ English ]

    I have been betting poker now for about 5 years, I’ve bet 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 basic random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so beautifully called, card on head casino game. I used to always win, whatever casino game we were wagering and even though I liked to call it skill, it was quite hard to justify considering the randomness of the games we were wagering, so I was happy to accept I was having a prolonged run of good fortune.

    Then came Poker, or a lot more importantly Texas holdem Poker, made popular by a group of Texas card gamblers in the 60’s and since developed into one of the largest card phenomena ever seen. Poker is absolutely the new black, it’s ultra awesome with several of the world’s top celebs racing to have their name connected with it. Just a quick flick through the TV channels these days and you are able to not escape from poker, and naturally there is the fabled World Series of Poker, the Holy Grail and Mecca all rolled into one for each and every individual gambler.

    So with all of this new discovered recognition, with so a lot of Tv programmes devoted to poker, and magazine and book shelves filled up with high quality material written by the leading minds on poker, when are people going to understand that this casino game is all about position!?

    Perhaps I should not get so worked up about this, after all the much more folks who struggle with the delicate tactics and approaches necessary for succeeding consistently at Holdem, the far better it can be for everyone else, appropriate? I mean, if they can’t be bothered to read all of the available information about why location is so significant, why should we bother? We should just be glad there is another fish at the table!

    It’s true, we need to not reward inactivity with guidance and assist. Nonetheless, I liken this to a friendly casino game of football. Naturally the stakes aren’t so great, but when you observe a player struggling, you guide them, offer them several advice, ultimately showing them a method to love, love and appreciate the casino game as much as you. I am calling on all house gamblers to do exactly the same thing with their poker friends who have not quite grasped the nuances of wagering position. Guide them to grow their respect for the casino game. Obviously, do not attempt to try this one in your local betting house, the sharks won’t take pleasure in you teaching their lunch how to swim!
