The Importance of Poker Position

[ English ]

Hold’em is just about individuals and seating. All knowledgeable Holdem enthusiasts agree that seating in no limit Hold’em is critically significant. Playing your hole cards in last spot could be a whole lot more beneficial than in early poker position. The reason because much more information is amassed prior to acting.

As an example, I played in a $1-$2 no limit cash match at a local poker room. I limped in holding 2, 9 unsuited on the dealer button, just to partake in a bit of action. Flop came down A-A-4. A player in starting spot laid a fifteen dollar wager. 2 players fold and it was my turn. I really should have dropped out, but something appear to be a bit off. I read this guy as a weak-tight player, and typically if he held the biggest hand he would just check, so I called.

The turn came down with a 7, meaning it was a A-A-4-7. My opponent placed another bet of $20. I deliberated a little bit, but took a chance to re-raise a further $30thirty dollars on top of his $20. He dropped out and I take the pot.

Playing last spot allows you an idea where you sit by watching how gamblers react and wager. On the flip side, enthusiasts at early spot could use their poker spot to check-raise the last seated aggressors and corner them later at the end. In Holdem, both ends, late and starting should be played carefully.
