I have been playing poker now for about five years, I’ve bet cards my entire life beginning with games of Gin Rummy for pennies with my Grand Mother, to all of the various types of Brag and basic random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so gracefully called, card on head casino game. I used to always win, whatever casino game we were wagering and even though I liked to call it skill, it was extremely hard to warrant considering the randomness of the games we were wagering, so I was over joyed to accept I was having a prolonged run of good fortune.

Then came Poker, or much more importantly Texas hold’em Poker, made famous by a group of Texas card players in the 1960’s and since grown into one of the largest card phenomena ever observed. Poker is absolutely the new black, it can be super cool with many of the world’s leading stars racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick flick via the TV channels these days and you’ll be able to not escape from poker, and naturally there’s the fabled WSOP, the Holy Grail and Mecca all combined into one for each and every individual gambler.

So with all of this new found recognition, with so quite a few Television programmes dedicated to poker, and magazine and book shelves loaded up with quality material written by the top minds on poker, when are individuals going to understand that this game is all about position!?

Perhaps I need to not obtain so worked up about this, after all the additional folks who wrestle with the delicate techniques and strategies needed for winning consistently at Hold em, the much better it is for everyone else, appropriate? I mean, if they can not be troubled to look at all of the accessible data about why location is so crucial, why ought to we bother? We must just be happy there’s one more fish at the table!

It is true, we must not reward laziness with advice and aid. Nevertheless, I liken this to a welcoming game of football. Naturally the stakes are not so superior, except when you notice a player struggling, you assist them, provide them several advice, ultimately showing them a way to get pleasure from, really like and appreciate the casino game as much as you. I’m asking all house gamblers to do the same thing with their poker friends who have not quite got a handle on the nuances of playing position. Support them to grow their respect for the casino game. Of course, don’t attempt to try this one in your neighborhood gambling den, the sharks will not appreciate you teaching their lunch how to swim!
