I’ve been betting poker now for about 5 years, I’ve played cards my entire life starting with games of Gin Rummy for pennies with my Grand Mother, to all of the various styles 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 game we were betting and although I liked to call it skill, it was quite hard to justify thinking about the randomness of the games we were playing, so I was over joyed to accept I was having a long-term run of luck.

Then came Poker, or a lot more importantly Hold em Poker, made famous by a bunch of Texas card gamblers in the sixties and since grown into one of the biggest card phenomena ever experienced. Poker is absolutely the new black, it really is super awesome with a lot of of the world’s leading superstars racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick flick through the TV channels these days and you are able to not escape from poker, and needless to say there’s the fabled WSOP, the Holy Grail and Mecca all rolled into one for each and every single player.

So with all of this fresh found recognition, with so a lot of Tv programmes dedicated 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 game is all about position!?

Perhaps I ought to not acquire so worked up about this, after all the far more people who wrestle with the delicate techniques and methods necessary for succeeding consistently at Hold’em, the far better it really is for everyone else, right? I mean, if they can not be troubled to read all of the readily available information about why location is so significant, why ought to we bother? We need to just be glad there is another fish at the table!

It’s true, we really should not reward idleness with advice and help. Nonetheless, I liken this to a welcoming casino game of football. Naturally the stakes aren’t so superior, except when you see a player having difficulties, you aid them, provide them a few advice, ultimately showing them a way to love, really like and appreciate the game as much as you. I’m askin all home players to do a similar thing with their poker friends who have not quite grasped the nuances of wagering position. Assist them to grow their respect for the casino game. Naturally, don’t attempt to try this one in your community casino, the sharks will not take pleasure in you teaching their supper how to swim!
