Texas Holdem is all about players and position. All knowledgeable Holdem enthusiasts agree that position in no cutoff Hold’em is fundamentally significant. Showing your hole cards in last position can be certainly more profitable than in starting poker spot. The reason because a lot more information is amassed right before acting.

e.g., I played in a $1-$2 no limit cash game at a local spot. I limped in with 2, 9 unsuited on the dealer button, so I could see some excitement. Flop came down A-A-4. An individual in early position made a fifteen dollar wager. Two individuals drop out and it was now my turn to act. I really should have dropped out, but his action seemed a bit odd. I identified this person as a weak-tight individual, and normally if he held the strongest hand he would simply check, so I called.

The turn came down with a 7, making it A-A-4-7. My challenger made another wager of $20. I debated a tiny bit, but decided to re-raise an additional $30thirty dollars over and above his $20. He dropped out and I won the chips.

Playing late position gives you an idea where you sit by seeing how other players react and wager. On the flip side, enthusiasts at early position may use their poker spot to check-raise the last seated antagonists and trap them later at the end. In Texas Holdem, each ends, late and early must be played cautiously.
