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

I’ve been betting poker now for about five years, I have wagered 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 beautifully called, card on head casino game. I used to often win, whatever game we were betting and although I liked to call it skill, it was very hard to warrant thinking about the randomness of the games we were betting, so I was over joyed 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 60’s and since grown into one of the largest card phenomena ever seen. Poker is absolutely the new black, it really is ultra cool with quite a few of the world’s leading superstars racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick flick through the TV channels nowadays and you are able to not escape from poker, and naturally there’s the fabled World Series of Poker, the Holy Grail and Mecca all rolled into one for each and every single player.

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

Perhaps I need to not have so worked up about this, after all the additional men and women who struggle with the subtle tactics and approaches required for winning consistently at Texas hold’em, the far better it can be for everyone else, right? I mean, if they can’t be bothered to read all of the offered info about why placement is so important, why should we bother? We need to just be happy there’s another fish at the table!

It is true, we need to not reward inactivity with guidance and support. Nevertheless, I liken this to a welcoming casino game of football. Naturally the stakes aren’t so superior, but when you observe a player having difficulties, you assist them, provide them a number of advice, ultimately showing them a way to enjoy, really like and be thankful for the game as much as you. I am calling on all home gamblers to do the same thing with their poker friends who have not quite grasped the subtleties of betting position. Guide them to grow their respect for the casino game. Certainly, don’t attempt to try this one in your local gambling house, the sharks will not appreciate you instructing their meal how to swim!
