The value of Poker Seating

by Gaige on November 12th, 2017

Holdem is simply about individuals and seating. All experienced Hold’em players concur that seating in no cutoff Texas Hold’em is fundamentally important. Showing your hole cards in late spot might be much more profitable than in starting poker position. This is because a lot more information is amassed right before acting.

i.e., I played in a $1-$2 no limit money round at a local poker room. I came in with 2, 9 unsuited on the croupier marker, just to partake in some action. Flop came down A-A-4. A bettor in starting position laid a fifteen dollar wager. 2 individuals fold and it was now my turn. I really should have dropped out, but his game play seemed a little off. I read this guy as a weak-tight player, and typically if he had the best hand he would simply check, so I called.

The turn arrived with a 7, making it A-A-4-7. My competitor placed an additional wager of $20. I hesitated a tiny bit, but decided to re-raise a further $30thirty dollars over and above his $20. He folds and I take the pot.

Wagering at last spot allows you an idea where you sit by observing how other gamblers behave and bet. On the flip side, enthusiasts at early spot can use their poker position to check-raise the last positioned antagonists and corner them afterwords at the end. In Holdem, both spots, late and early must be played carefully.
