When are You Going to Learn that Texas Hold em 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 forms of Brag and general random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so eloquently called, card on head game. I used to always win, whatever game we were wagering and even though I liked to call it skill, it was extremely tough to justify considering the randomness of the games we were wagering, so I was over joyed to accept I was having a long-term run of good fortune.

Then came Poker, or more importantly Texas hold em Poker, made famous by a bunch of Texas card players in the 1960’s and since grown into one of the largest card phenomena ever experienced. Poker is totally the new black, it really is super cool with a lot of of the world’s leading celebrities racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick scan via the TV channels nowadays and you are able to not escape from poker, and naturally there is 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 discovered popularity, with so numerous Tv programmes dedicated to poker, and magazine and book shelves filled up with quality material written by the foremost minds on poker, when are individuals going to understand that this game is all about position!?

Perhaps I really should not obtain so worked up about this, after all the a lot more individuals who wrestle with the delicate techniques and strategies necessary for succeeding consistently at Texas hold’em, the far better it is for everyone else, appropriate? I mean, if they cannot be bothered to look at all of the obtainable details about why position is so important, why ought to we bother? We should just be happy there is one more fish at the table!

It’s true, we must not reward idleness with advice and guide. However, I liken this to a welcoming game of football. Granted the stakes aren’t so high, but when you notice a gambler struggling, you support them, provide them several advice, ultimately showing them a way to get pleasure from, like and appreciate the casino game as much as you. I’m asking all house players to do exactly the same thing with their poker friends who have not quite grasped the nuances of wagering position. Guide them to grow their respect for the game. Of course, do not attempt to try this one in your nearby gambling house, the sharks won’t appreciate you teaching their supper how to swim!
