The Importance of Poker Seating

[ English ]

Texas Hold’em is just about players and position. All experienced Texas Hold’em enthusiasts concur that seating in no cutoff Hold’em is critically significant. Playing your hole cards in late position could be much more profitable than in starting poker position. The reason because a whole lot more info is collected right before acting.

As an example, I played in a $1-$2 no limit money game at a local poker room. I came in holding 2, 9 unsuited on the croupier button, just to see some excitement. Flop came down A-A-4. A player in early spot laid a fifteen dollar wager. Two players fold and it was my turn. I should have folded, but something felt a tiny bit off. I read this person as a weak-tight person, and usually if he had the best hand he would simply check, so I called.

The turn came down with a 7, meaning it was a A-A-4-7. My competitor placed another wager of $20. I deliberated for a while, but took a chance to re-raise an additional $30thirty dollars on top of his twenty dollars. He folds and I take the chips.

Playing last spot allows you an insight into where you sit by seeing how other enthusiasts behave and wager. On the flip side, people at early spot can use their poker spot to check-raise the late seated competitors and corner them afterwords at the end. In Holdem, each ends, last and starting should be played cautiously.
