When will You Going to Learn that Holdem Poker is About Position!

I’ve been wagering poker now for about five years, I have played cards my entire life starting with games of Gin Rummy for pennies with my Grand Mother, to all of the various forms of Brag and basic random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so beautifully called, card on head game. I used to often win, whatever game we were wagering and even though 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 happy to accept I was having a long run of good fortune.

Then came Poker, or more importantly Hold’em Poker, made famous by a group of Texas card players in the sixties and since grown into one of the largest card phenomena ever witnessed. Poker is absolutely the new black, it is super cool with several of the world’s top celebrities racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick flick via the TV channels nowadays and you can not escape from poker, and naturally there’s the fabled World Series of Poker, the Holy Grail and Mecca all combined into one for each and every single gambler.

So with all of this fresh found recognition, with so several Tv programmes devoted to poker, and magazine and book shelves loaded up with high quality material written by the foremost minds on poker, when are persons going to learn that this game is all about position!?

Perhaps I must not receive so worked up about this, after all the more persons who struggle with the delicate techniques and methods necessary for succeeding consistently at Holdem, the far better it’s for everyone else, right? I mean, if they can’t be bothered to read all of the readily available data about why location is so crucial, why really should we bother? We must just be glad there’s another fish at the table!

It is true, we ought to not reward idleness with guidance and guide. However, I liken this to a helpful game of football. Granted the levels aren’t so superior, except when you see a gambler having difficulties, you assist them, provide them a number of advice, ultimately showing them a way to enjoy, like and appreciate the casino game as much as you. I’m asking all house gamblers to do exactly the same thing with their poker buddies who haven’t quite grasped the nuances of betting position. Support them to grow their respect for the casino game. Of course, do not attempt to try this one in your local casino, the sharks won’t take pleasure in you teaching their lunch how to swim!
