The value of Poker Position

Holdem is simply about players and position. All rounded Holdem enthusiasts agree that position in no cutoff Hold’em is fundamentally significant. Playing your hole cards in last spot can be a whole lot more profitable than in early poker spot. This is because a whole lot more information is gathered right before acting.

e.g., I played in a $1-$2 no limit money game at a local poker room. I came in holding 2, 9 unsuited on the dealer button, so I could partake in a little fun. Flop came down A-A-4. A player in starting position placed a fifteen dollar bet. Two players drop out and it was my turn to act. I should have dropped out, but something seemed a little off. I labeled this guy as a weak-tight guy, and usually if he had the biggest hand he would just check, so I called.

The turn arrived with a 7, meaning it was a A-A-4-7. My competitor placed another bet of $20. I debated a bit, but decided to re-raise another $30thirty dollars over and above his twenty dollars. He dropped out and I won the cash.

Sitting at late position provides you an insight into where you are positioned by observing how entrants react and bet. On the flip side, individuals at early position might use their poker position to check-raise the last positioned aggressors and corner them later at the end. In Texas Hold’em, each ends, late and early should be wagered cautiously.
