I have always thought that being in position is the most important part of choosing to play a hand. The power of position is crucial and all the top players try to exploit this situation

That´s the best position, when nobody raises before and you can make power from the button. In the low stakes you have verry often a lot of limper and so you can get a lot of dead money with a initial raise in cash games.

well I will tell you a secret...because all know that D position is best... most of players overplay it... so its preaty nice place to let them bluff you from that possition when you have good holdings, also you can bluff a lot players that are raising 90% and more hands from D position Big Smile

well yeah, just as StheP pointed this out- to every strategy there's an anti-strategy... the way i see this is that if something is so common that even your drunk neighbor knows of and is trying to apply... it's not going to work... as they say in business- buy wehn everyone's selling, and sell when everyone's buying.

i alway's thought the best position was to be on the bottom with a beautiful women on top off me saying "Oh daddy... your the best" lol Smile
That usually is when I have been dealt pocket Ace King suited and flop the nut flush then some idiot try to shove in front of me because he hit his queen.
Thank you poker God's for giving me his money Smile

D position is actualy the best, but you must not raise evry single haand from it, because you will be over bluffing, you should mix up from time to time some bluffs from that spot, but that doesnt mean you should bluff some cards without any equity... like trying to steal with 72 off... when you are bluffing you should at least have some equity, like flush drows, or str8 drows, and mix up a little bluffs that contains gutshots and backdoor flush drows... other than that I dont recomend bluffing without any equity, because that is so much -EV

Yes I too think that position is super important in poker, but still even more important is the hand you have, no position can help you win if guy calls and you have the worse hand, so position I think is only one tool, a very important tool but not the only one.

the three P's which are important in my life are Peace, Pina Colada, Pu55y! Big Smile ok that was for a laugh but regarding the topic I'd finish in deep ranks and won good cash in Mtts where I was out of position and folded strong hands just because I'd that feeling it was not going to finish well so yes you should always do the max to have good position to your opponents involved in the hands...

There was a time when I didn't even know what the big blind, the small blind, and the button are. I remember that I used to play cards in the same fashion regardless of my seating position at a table...

G'day mate

Tony you are not alone mate.
We all went through that stage when we were first starting out,
I know a few guys who have been playing for years and they still play the same way as when the began years ago.
I love playing them sheep as I always just happen to finish with more money then I started the night with. I never shear them sheep for large amounts at one time, I only fleece them each for small amonuts but I have done it many times Smile

wishing you all the best
be cool

I was a terrible poker player but I thought I was good enough to play with real money because I had made a couple of billion virtual chips on Zynga poker. That was silly. I easily lost nearly two thousand dollars in just a week playing cash games on PokerStars, LMFAO!
