The value of Poker Position

Holdem is just about people and position. All knowledgeable Texas Holdem players agree that seating in no limit Hold’em is critically significant. Playing your hole cards in last spot might be certainly more profitable than in early poker spot. This is because a whole lot more data is gathered prior to acting.

As an example, I was playing a $1-$2 no limit money round at a local poker room. I limped in with 2, 9 unsuited on the croupier button, just to partake in some action. Flop came down A-A-4. A bettor in starting position made a fifteen dollar bet. 2 players drop out and it was now my turn to act. I should have folded, but something felt a tiny bit odd. I identified this person as a weak-tight bettor, and normally if he had the best hand he would simply check, so I called.

The turn showed with a 7, meaning it was a A-A-4-7. My opponent laid another wager of $20. I debated for a while, but decided to re-raise an additional $30thirty dollars on top of his twenty dollars. He dropped out and I take the cash.

Sitting at late spot gives you an idea where you are positioned by seeing how other gamblers behave and bet. On the flip side, individuals at early position can use their poker position to check-raise the last seated antagonists and corner them later at the end. In Texas Holdem, each spots, last and early must be bet carefully.
