I have been playing 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 gracefully called, card on head game. I used to often win, whatever casino game we were playing and even though I liked to call it skill, it was incredibly difficult to justify thinking about the randomness of the games we were playing, so I was pleased to accept I was having a long-term run of good fortune.

Then came Poker, or far more importantly Hold’em Poker, made popular by a bunch of Texas card gamblers in the sixties and since developed into one of the biggest card phenomena ever seen. Poker is absolutely the new black, it truly is super awesome with a lot of of the world’s leading celebs racing to have their name connected with it. Just a quick scan through the TV channels these days and you’ll be able to not escape from poker, and obviously there’s the fabled WSOP, the Holy Grail and Mecca all combined into one for each single player.

So with all of this new found recognition, with so several Tv programmes devoted to poker, and magazine and book shelves filled up with quality material written by the foremost minds on poker, when are people going to learn that this casino game is all about position!?

Perhaps I really should not receive so worked up about this, after all the much more persons who struggle with the delicate techniques and strategies required for winning consistently at Hold’em, the much better it is for everyone else, correct? I mean, if they cannot be troubled to look at all of the readily available data about why placement is so essential, why ought to we bother? We must just be happy there is one more fish at the table!

It is true, we must not encourage idleness with advice and aid. Nonetheless, I liken this to a friendly casino game of football. Naturally the levels aren’t so high, except when you see a gambler having difficulties, you guide them, provide them some advice, ultimately showing them a way to like, really like and be thankful for the casino game as much as you. I’m askin all home gamblers to do a similar thing with their poker buddies who haven’t quite got a handle on the subtleties of betting position. Assist them to grow their respect for the game. Certainly, don’t attempt to try this one in your neighborhood betting house, the sharks will not take pleasure in you instructing their lunch how to swim!
