PICKING A SEAT

  Besides finding a table that matches your personality and your poker style and skill level, you’ll   want to pick a seat that gives you an advantage. 

  Some seats are more advantageous than others. 

  I’m not talking about a lucky seat, but one that puts you in an advantageous positions  relative to other players with certain characteristics.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

  Your location in the betting sequence makes a difference. 

  Your position matters.Some positions allow you to gather more information before you act   than other seats do. 

  The more information you have, the better decisions you can make. 

  The later in the betting sequence before you have to act, the better. 

  Position rotates with each deal, so your positional advantage is transitory and gets spread  equally among all poker players.

  However, with a careful choice of seat you can sometimes find an advantage that is uniquely yours for every deal. 

  This involves your position relative to certain other players.

  There are two different kinds of advantages you can get from picking a good seat.

  In some cases you can gain an information; in other cases you can gain a strategic  advantage.

  Ideally, before you have to make a decision about your own hand, you’d like to have as   much information as you can. 

  To get this information, you prefer to have two kinds of players act before you: loose  players and aggressive poker players

  When other players act before you, you gain information.

  Even having a player fold gives you information, but you gain even more information when a players calls (loose player) or raises (aggressive player). 

  In other cases the strategic advantages you can get late in the hand from having a   certain player on your left overshadows an early information advantage you might get from   having them on your right.
