  • What's most important for your preflop decission

    Hi all,
    what's the most importent fact for your preflop decissions?

    Hand strength
    Position at the table
    Opponents' action in front of you

    The most important thing for me is reads on the opponents. For example, if a nit raises in front of me, I am folding a lot of hands I would play if the raiser was a maniac.

    Good luck

      Based on my own experience and from what I've read on various forums (info written by much more advanced players), position is very crucial.

      For example, if two players who were equally as good and played exactly the same sat down at the same table, the one sitting to the left would win more money in the long run due to the inherent advantage of his position.

        Hi Beginner358!

        All of the above, plus multiple other things... reads, stack sizes, etc.

          i agree with John

          stack size, position, hand strength, player types, actions before you, possible actions behind..

          just as an example, in a full ring game i have AA in middle position. UTG opens..usually this is a 3B spot BUT..
          what if there is a verry aggressive player behind me who likes to squeeze? (3B vs an open and a call)..

          in this situation i would likely call to let the aggressive player squeeze and then take it from there
