Your POSITION Of Power In Holdem
In Hold'em poker, the importance of your position in relation to the dealer can not be stressed enough. The reason for learning position is that the later your position is the more information you will have about the other players. If you are in the last, or dealer position, you have the most information of all the other players, because they all have to act before you have to make a decision.
There are hands that you would throw away, without a second thought, in one position and raise with in another. The problem is learning which position is best for each action.
The first point that you must learn is where the positions are at the table.
The starting hand requirements for each position are quite different
Play before the flop
Play after the flop
When you have seen the flop, you have seen over 70% of your hand. This means that you must decide whether to bet your hand or to fold.
By the time you have reached the turn and the river you should know how strong your hand is in relation to the other players. With a little study and experience you will know how to play your hand. For the most part, try studying your opponents and act in ways they don't expect.
In the beginning try to concentrate on what position you are in at all times. As you gain more experience at the tables, you will find that knowing your position will become automatic and you won't even have to think about it.
