I’ve been wagering poker now for about 5 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 styles of Brag and general random games such as Go Fish, Crash and one so beautifully called, card on head game. I used to often win, whatever casino game we were betting and even though I liked to call it skill, it was extremely difficult to warrant considering the randomness of the games we were wagering, so I was happy to accept I was having a long-term run of luck.
Then came Poker, or additional importantly Hold em Poker, made famous by a bunch of Texas card players in the 1960’s and since grown into one of the biggest card phenomena ever observed. Poker is totally the new black, it really is ultra cool with a lot of of the world’s leading stars racing to have their name associated with it. Just a quick scan through the TV channels these days and you’ll be able to not escape from poker, and of course there’s the fabled WSOP, the Holy Grail and Mecca all combined into one for each single gambler.
So with all of this new found recognition, with so many Tv programmes devoted to poker, and magazine and book shelves filled up with quality material written by the leading minds on poker, when are people going to understand that this casino game is all about position!?
Perhaps I must not get so worked up about this, after all the far more folks who have difficulty with the subtle tactics and strategies needed for succeeding regularly at Texas holdem, the better it really is for everyone else, appropriate? I mean, if they can’t be bothered to look at all of the accessible facts about why placement is so essential, why ought to we bother? We need to just be happy there’s an additional fish at the table!
It’s true, we need to not encourage idleness with advice and support. However, I liken this to a helpful game of football. Granted the stakes aren’t so superior, but when you see a gambler having difficulties, you guide them, offer them several advice, ultimately showing them a way to like, really like and appreciate the casino game as much as you. I am askin all home gamblers to do the same thing with their poker buddies who haven’t quite got a handle on the nuances of wagering position. Guide them to grow their respect for the game. Needless to say, do not attempt to try this one in your local gambling establishment, the sharks will not take pleasure in you instructing their lunch how to swim!
