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

August 9th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have been betting poker now for about 5 years, I have bet cards my entire life starting 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 game. I used to usually win, whatever casino game we were wagering and even though I liked to call it skill, it was incredibly tough to warrant considering the randomness of the games we were playing, so I was over joyed to accept I was having an extended run of good fortune.

Then came Poker, or much more importantly Texas holdem Poker, made popular by a group of Texas card gamblers in the 1960’s and since grown into one of the biggest card phenomena ever seen. Poker is absolutely the new black, it’s uber cool with a lot of of the world’s leading super stars racing to have their name connected with it. Just a quick flick via the TV channels nowadays and it is possible to not escape from poker, and obviously there’s the fabled World Series of Poker, the Holy Grail and Mecca all combined into one for each and every individual player.

So with all of this new found popularity, with so numerous Television programmes dedicated to poker, and magazine and book shelves loaded up with quality material written by the leading minds on poker, when are men and women going to understand that this casino game is all about position!?

Perhaps I need to not acquire so worked up about this, after all the far more persons who have difficulty with the subtle tactics and approaches needed for succeeding regularly at Texas hold’em, the much better it really is for everyone else, right? I mean, if they can’t be troubled to read all of the offered data about why position is so essential, why need to we bother? We ought to just be happy there’s an additional fish at the table!

It’s true, we ought to not encourage laziness with advice and guide. Even so, I liken this to a welcoming game of football. Granted the levels aren’t so good, except when you observe a player struggling, you assist them, offer them a few advice, ultimately showing them a method to love, love and appreciate the casino game as much as you. I am calling on all home gamblers to do exactly the same thing with their poker buddies who haven’t quite got a handle on the subtleties of wagering position. Aid them to grow their respect for the game. Obviously, don’t attempt to try this one in your local gambling establishment, the sharks won’t take pleasure in you instructing their supper how to swim!
