When are You Going to Learn that Texas Holdem Poker is All About Seating!

I have been wagering poker now for about five years, I have bet 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 often win, whatever game we were playing and even though I liked to call it skill, it was really hard to warrant considering the randomness of the games we were wagering, so I was pleased to accept I was having a long-term run of good fortune.

Then came Poker, or much more importantly Texas holdem Poker, made famous by a group of Texas card players in the 1960’s and since developed into one of the biggest card phenomena ever seen. Poker is totally the new black, it’s super cool with a lot of of the world’s top stars racing to have their name connected with it. Just a quick flick via the TV channels nowadays and you can not escape from poker, and naturally there’s the fabled World Series of Poker, the Holy Grail and Mecca all rolled into one for every individual gambler.

So with all of this new discovered recognition, with so many Tv programmes devoted to poker, and magazine and book shelves loaded up with high quality material written by the leading minds on poker, when are men and women going to learn that this game is all about position!?

Perhaps I should not have so worked up about this, after all the much more men and women who have difficulty with the delicate tactics and strategies required for succeeding consistently at Holdem, the better it really is for everyone else, proper? I mean, if they cannot be bothered to read all of the accessible info about why position is so important, why need to we bother? We should just be happy there’s another fish at the table!

It’s true, we need to not encourage inactivity with advice and guide. Nevertheless, I liken this to a welcoming game of football. Naturally the levels are not so great, but when you observe a player having difficulties, you help them, provide them some advice, ultimately showing them a way to like, really like and be grateful for the casino game as much as you. I am asking all home players to do the same thing with their poker friends who have not quite grasped the nuances of betting position. Assist them to grow their respect for the game. Needless to say, don’t attempt to try this one in your nearby gambling den, the sharks will not take pleasure in you teaching their lunch how to swim!
