The value of Poker Position

[ English ]

Texas Hold’em is all about gamblers and position. All knowledgeable Holdem enthusiasts agree that seating in no limit Hold’em is critically significant. Playing your hole cards in last position may be a whole lot more beneficial than in early poker spot. The reason because much more data is amassed before acting.

e.g., I was playing a $1-$2 no limit money match at a local poker room. I limped in with 2, 9 unsuited on the croupier button, so I could see a little action. Flop arrived A-A-4. An individual in early spot made a fifteen dollar wager. 2 individuals drop out and it was now my turn to act. I should have dropped out, but something seemed a bit odd. I read this guy as a weak-tight person, and usually if he held the number one hand he would simply check, so I called.

The turn arrived with a 7, making it A-A-4-7. My opponent placed another wager of $20. I debated for a while, but took a chance to re-raise an additional $30thirty dollars on top of his $20. He folds and I won the chips.

Sitting at last position gives you an insight into where you sit by watching how other players behave and wager. On the other hand, players at starting spot may use their poker position to check-raise the last positioned competitors and trap them afterwords at the end. In Texas Holdem, each spots, last and early should be wagered cautiously.
