I have been playing poker now for about five years, I have bet cards my entire life starting 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 always win, whatever casino game we were betting and although I liked to call it skill, it was incredibly tough to warrant thinking about the randomness of the games we were playing, so I was over joyed to accept I was having a prolonged run of luck.

Then came Poker, or additional importantly Texas hold em Poker, made popular by a group of Texas card gamblers in the sixties and since developed into one of the biggest card phenomena ever experienced. Poker is totally the new black, it really is uber cool with quite a few of the world’s top superstars 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 of course there is the fabled World Series of Poker, the Holy Grail and Mecca all combined into one for each and every individual gambler.

So with all of this fresh discovered recognition, with so several Television programmes dedicated to poker, and magazine and book shelves loaded up with high quality material written by the foremost minds on poker, when are men and women going to understand that this casino game is all about position!?

Perhaps I really should not get so worked up about this, after all the much more folks who struggle with the subtle techniques and strategies required for winning consistently at Hold em, the far better it’s for everyone else, proper? I mean, if they cannot be bothered to read all of the accessible info about why position is so critical, why need to we bother? We ought to just be happy there’s an additional fish at the table!

It is true, we should not encourage laziness with advice and assist. Even so, I liken this to a friendly casino game of football. Granted the levels are not so great, except when you notice a gambler struggling, you aid them, offer them several advice, ultimately showing them a way to enjoy, really like and be thankful for the game as much as you. I am asking all house players to do the same thing with their poker friends who have not quite grasped the subtleties of wagering position. Aid them to grow their respect for the game. Needless to say, do not attempt to try this one in your neighborhood gambling house, the sharks will not take pleasure in you instructing their supper how to swim!
